Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
DESCRIPTION This Property is an imposing Grade II Listed stone built double fronted former Vicarage of immense charm and character which occupies a first class site of almost half an acre in the centre of one of the area's most sought after villages. Osmotherley lies within the North York Moors National Park on the fringe of the Cleveland Hills which affords some of the region's most picturesque scenery together with a wide range of outdoor leisure pursuits. It offers an excellent range of local facilities including shops, three pub restaurants, cafe, church and bus service to Northallerton and Stokesley. Despite its rural setting, it lies just a mile from the A19 trunk road which links to the motorway network and affords rapid access to the major centres of Teesside, Newcastle and Leeds. There are international airports at Durham Tees Valley (half an hour) and Leeds Bradford (1hr) and main line rail stations at Northallerton and Thirsk.

The property affords elegant, well proportioned accommodation which includes Six Reception Rooms, Four Double Bedrooms and Two Bathrooms with features such as cast iron period style radiators, period fireplaces throughout and corniced ceilings with centre roses to principal rooms. In addition, there is a stone built Coach House which provides Garaging for four vehicles with a self contained Annexe to the first floor. Oil fired central heating is installed to both properties on separate systems.

The house stands in largely walled and hedged Gardens which are approached through a wooded entrance with electric gates and laid mainly to lawns with numerous established trees and shrubs which afford a high degree of privacy.
