    About this property

    • White Heather Cottage is an attractive traditional stone built cottage believed to date from the 18th century, including some original outbuildings and a more recently constructed garden store/work shop. The property stands back from the main street, in this picturesque North Yorkshire Moors village, fronted by a very private lawned garden and bordered by rolling countryside to the East.

      Whilst the house and buildings retain much of their original character and charm, they have been the subject of considerable refurbishment works and reconfiguration in recent years. The living and dining room have been combined to form a generous and flexible living area, the windows and doors widened and fitted with full height sliding patio doors boosting natural light levels and creating a seamless link to the garden. The kitchen is to one side, recently refurbished to a high standard and beyond that, along a short hallway is a study or fourth bedroom.

      On the first floor are three bedrooms and a recently refurbished bathroom.

      The house occupies a discrete position in the heart of the village, set back and at right angles to the main street. A driveway dissects the outbuildings which fronts the main street, leading past the front of the cottage to a parking area and additional outbuilding which currently serves as a garden store and workshop. The garden is bordered by a combination of high walls, fencing and mature hedges, interspersed by mature trees.
