About this property

  • This traditional stone built farmhouse stands up and back from the main street behind a green, on the edge of this well served Moors village. Thanks to this elevated position the house enjoys outstanding views to the north across the Esk valley and to the south towards Danby Head and the North Yorkshire Moors.

    The property dates from the mid 19th century and is believed to have been a farmhouse which has clearly been extended and reconfigured to form this deceptively spacious family home. The accommodation is both practical and well-proportioned, many of the rooms showcasing some eye catching period features, all being bathed with copious amounts of natural light. With four good sized bedrooms and three bathrooms, there is plenty of space for a growing family or visiting guests, with a flexible room in the loft which would suit a occasional (fifth) bedroom, teenagers snug or study area. The entire house is neutrally decorated and well maintained, much of the infrastructure having been updated by the present owners.

    Perhaps the greatest highlight is the larger than average rear garden, which has been cleverly planted to create pockets of colour and interest, layered beds framed by mature trees, flanking a central lawn which meanders through to a sitting out space at the far end boasting some outstanding southerly views of the surrounding Moors.

A charming and deceptively spacious house with some of the finest views I have ever seen.
