Grade II listed former Rectory lying within a parkland setting.
Thirkleby House is a Grade II listed former Rectory believed to date from around 1866. The house which lies to the east of Mill Lane approximately 375 metres north or the village is of an attractive red brick construction under a grey slate roof and provides well-proportioned accommodation currently with six bedrooms and a gross internal floor area of 3,810 sq ft. Whilst the house requires some updating and modernisation it was believed to have been reroofed about 20 years ago and partially rewired more recently.
The accommodation which is arranged across two floors, shown on the floorplan attached, has attractive architectural features including high ceilings with plaster cornicing, pitch pine doors, a feature glazed staircase window and ornate glazed hallway doorway and tiled fireplaces. On the ground floor the reception hall leads to a full width combined sitting room and lounge, well-proportioned dining room, kitchen and utility rooms, beyond which lies the backyard providing access to the garage and store which may have potential for provision of further accommodation subject to planning. On the first floor, there are six good sized bedrooms and three bathrooms including a large family bathroom.
The house is set within well-established private lawned gardens including mature specimen trees which lead on to the parkland and down to the Thirkleby Beck which is a particular feature of the property. The land which is currently within a Stewardship Scheme is ideal for those with amenity or conservation interests as well as being well suited for equestrian or livestock enterprises. The land is naturally split by Mill Lane which although being council highway only leads to one more farm beyond the property. The house lies within a total of about 15.34 acres of gardens and parkland to the east of Mill Lane. To the west is a further 13.5 acres again including attractive well established permanent grassland with an area of arable land at the northern end. There is a brick built stable and the base of the former tennis court which provides a potential site for building additional stables if required.
The sale offers a rare opportunity to acquire an attractive Grade II listed family house with potential for the purchaser to modernise to their own taste in an unspoilt yet accessible location.
