To The Outside

The property occupies a quite outstanding corner position being significantly set back from the road with vehicular access directly off Fortune Hill onto a re-laid front and side driveway which provides off street parking for numerous motor vehicles. The driveway in turn gives access to the detached double garage which is of brick and tiled construction with up and over door, and electric light and power.

A driveway matching pathway runs across the front of the property and steps out onto a L shaped lawned garden beyond with screening tree. There is an area of wild garden running parallel with the entrance pathway and access can be gained either side of the property through into the rear garden beyond.

One of the outstanding features of the house is the mature side and rear garden which creates a unique family environment.

Adjoining the rear elevation is a flagged patio which provides ample space for freestanding garden furniture and adjoins a raised rockery with planted shrubs with mature screening trees.

The central part of the rear garden is laid to lawn with a further planted herbaceous side border.

There is a significant vegetable and fruit garden which runs to the rear of the garage and produces a generous yearly harvest. A lean-to greenhouse is situated adjoining the rear elevation of the garage and furthermore a raised summerhouse/games room is also included within the sale.

Crucially the rear garden is private and fully enclosed to all sides by fenced and hedge lined borders. There is also gate access to Nidd Gorge.

The property provides outstanding family living accommodation and an early inspection of both the internal and external accommodation is strongly recommended
