About this property

  • 8 Pottergate is a charming traditional stone period home situated close to the centre of the historic market town of Helmsley. This delightful four bedroom property is deceivingly spacious, with a wonderful open plan kitchen dining and garden room with bi folding windows out to the patio and garden. This creates a perfect entertaining and family space as well as connecting the house to the garden.

    The kitchen has hand fitted bespoke oak units and an Aga nestled in the old fireplace, in addition there is a useful pantry off the kitchen area and a separate utility area leading to the garden.

    The sitting room to the front of the house is most welcoming with original parquet block flooring and open fireplace. The ground floor benefits from a cloakroom off the hallway. To the first floor are three bedrooms, the principal bedroom at the rear benefits from views across the rooftops towards the keep of Helmsley Castle. The house bathroom is superb with a free standing bath and a separate shower. To the second floor is the fourth bedroom, currently used as an office.

    The west facing garden is of particular note, designed by the current owners to make the most of the length of the garden, with a patio close to the house, a gravelled area with a small pond and mature shrubs and lawned area to the rear leading to the outbuilding. The outbuilding is a valuable space currently used as a workshop or has the potential for a studio or home office.

I think that this is a true hidden gem within a peaceful setting yet close to the hustle and bustle of the town.
