Carlton In Coverdale, Leyburn, North Yorkshire


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
A traditional dales house with a southerly aspect and superb views from all the principal reception rooms and bedrooms. The accommodation is substantial with a relatively small rear garden, making it an ideal family property for those not wishing to spend too much time gardening, but having space to sit and enjoy the views. There are some lovely features including open fireplaces, beamed ceilings, a stone return staircase, a four oven Aga in racing green and reputedly the only round chimney stacks in the Dales! With five bedrooms, three of which are en-suite plus a house bathroom, three reception rooms and a study, this is a generously proportioned property. All the en-suites and bathrooms are modern white suites.
