About this property

  • Longbank House, with its principal rooms facing the Yorkshire Dales and substantial gardens strikes a perfect balance between rural and village life. The house curls around a courtyard with double garage and workshop.

    The house is accessible either through a cloak and boot room, complete with sink and WC, or directly into the main hall of the house. Opposite the door is a private study with storage and an attractive blue fireplace, overlooking the courtyard. To the left of the hallway, there lies the main reception room of the house. A large bay window to the west opens onto imposing views across the gardens to the dales. An internal hallway links the reception, dining room and kitchen. The paneled dining room mirrors the reception, with the addition of a storage room. There is a door directly outside onto the terrace and another leading into the sun room, perfect for relaxing after dinner which itself leads onto the gardens.

    The kitchen/breakfast room, complete with larder, range and seating area can be accessed from the courtyard, dining room or via the utility or from the internal hallway and really is at the heart of this impressive house.

    The first floor houses two equally impressive principal bedrooms, which share a private bathroom to the rear of the house. There are a further four bedrooms upstairs, sharing a pretty shower room and WC.

    The garden has been beautifully cared for and presents several spaces for entertaining, with formal gardens, a copse and even a vegetable patch for the particularly green fingered.
