    About this property

    • Nestled away on an impressive plot. This beautiful stone built period house is situated in picturesque countryside with stunning views towards Harrogate and Ripley.

      Approached by a graveled driveway. Hardgate House offers well pro-portioned and flexible accommodation over two floors, which retain a wealth of original features and character.

      The ground floor rooms are all generously proportioned. This includes a sizeable 30ft drawing room room with log burner and large dual aspect windows giving breath taking views across the open countryside beyond. An inviting dining room and Snug. The L-shaped kitchen is fitted with built in units, granite worktops and an oil fired Aga. This has been opened up to incorporate an island unit with breakfast bar. Just off from the kitchen is a fantastic wine store, which would also double as a pantry.

      The generous proportions continue across the first floor, with a superb principal bedroom suite, five further bedrooms and a house bathroom.

      In addition to the house there is a two bedroom cottage which has been partially updated by the current owners and would make a fantastic holiday let, or accommodation for dependant relatives, once the renovations have been completed. The property also has an impressive stone built barn which has scope to be converted, subject to the necessary permissions, into ancillary accommodation.

      The outdoor space includes a large driveway with parking for several cars, a paddock with spring fed pond, and a range of outbuildings. There are sizeable lawns to the front and rear of the house and a beautiful York stone patio area.
