    About this property

    • Glenwood is a charming double fronted sandstone built period house synonymous with this quintessential North Yorkshire village. The property has been the subject of considerable renovation and refurbishment in recent years, including new hardwood double glazed sash windows to the front elevation, a new bathroom suite and numerous cosmetic improvements which combine to form a beautifully appointed home, filled with character features.

      The house has just the right balance of well-proportioned rooms for a growing family or downsizing couple. The kitchen is adorned with plenty of cupboard space and benefits from dual aspect windows overlooking the village and the garden to the rear, the adjacent sitting room with wood burning stove provides the perfect evening retreat. Beyond the kitchen is a particularly useful utility and pantry area, providing plenty of additional storage.

      Finishing off the ground floor accommodation the present owners have created a garden room to the rear of the property which benefits from bi-fold doors and a wood burning stove. This light-filled room works for a multitude of different purposes but with the advantage of an adjoining shower room it could be used as a ground floor guest suite if needed.

      The first floor is home to two sizeable bedrooms and a well-appointed house bathroom and dressing area; fitted with built-in wardrobes. Ascending the stairs to the second floor, you will find two further bedrooms.

      One of the highlights of the property is the larger than average rear garden, incorporating a useful garden room/office and store. The garden, predominantly laid to lawn, rises to a decked terrace which provides a super vantage point from which to sit and enjoy the southerly views. Behind this a meandering path leads through mixed woodland with a stream marking the western boundary.
