A charming five bedroom period country residence surrounded by picturesque countryside within the North York Moors National Park.
Lowdales Cottage is an idyllic Grade II listed property nestled in a peaceful and picturesque rural hamlet of three houses within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.
This period property dates back to the 17th Century and has been sympathetically enhanced by the current owners, extending to just over 3,000 square feet of beautifully appointed, character filled accommodation. The ground floor is approached through an original hardwood door into a welcoming entrance hall with flagged stoned flooring and exposed stone walls, with a glazed door at the other end leading to the garden.
The sitting room is an original part of the house with flag stone flooring which continues throughout most of the ground floor rooms. There is a log burner with original stone fireplace, exposed beams and salt cupboard, and the staircase which incorporates original panelling. This leads to a generous principal bedroom which has a wonderful view of the garden and a few steps lead up to the en suite bathroom. Two further double bedrooms and a shower room can be found on this floor.
The dining room on the ground floor adjoins the kitchen which has bespoke units designed and created by Hovingham Interiors with granite worktops and an Aga, there is an additional breakfast area off the kitchen including a separate utility room/pantry. Through double doors is an attractive oak framed garden room with double doors onto a patio area and views to the banks of the garden and woodland beyond. A glass walkway links the main house to the spacious family room with a vaulted beamed ceiling and three sets of French doors opening out to the rear garden. Beyond the family room the current owners have created a significant office with bespoke handmade units and shelving, the addition of two sets of folding doors making a light and bright room, which could be used as a guest bedroom. Above the family room there are two double bedrooms with eaves storage and a shower room.
Externally the house is approached via an adopted road with two fords and then a private drive to double electric gates on to a gravelled drive with ample of parking for a number of vehicles. A separate stable block lies adjacent to the paddock (about 0.7 acre).
The delightful grounds covers about 2.28 acres incorporating Lowdales Beck, a mature woodland, a paddock area and gardens which are mainly laid to lawn with mature hedges, trees and stone raised beds all with spectacular views to Whisper dales and Silpho. The owners have created an open stone summer house and a storage room with electrics.
