The village of Sowerby

The village of Sowerby links with Thirsk, but retains its own identity and is set in the heart of 'Herriot Country', the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park to the east. Thirsk is also the Darrowby of the late 'James Herriot' (Alf Wight), famous vet and author.

On Front Street, which is the main road through the village, an avenue lined with trees, is an old timbered house and the historical village church, and over Cod Beck at the southern end is an old packhorse bridge.

Local facilities include a reputable public house and a nursing home. There are several schools in Sowerby -Thirsk School on Topcliffe Road, and also a primary school. The village is within easy access of the A1, A19/A168 for commuting both north to Teesside and south to York.

Property Description

On entry to this period home, the hall allows access to the living room, dining room and there is also a staircase to the first-floor accommodation. The living room, to the front elevation of the property, has high ceilings and the original cornice. There is also a gas fire with tiled surround indicating that there may be the opportunity to install a more contemporary fire if desired. There is also a bow window taking in views of Front Street.

To the rear elevation, the dining room also has a gas fire with tiled surround, high ceilings with the original cornice and access to the kitchen and, in turn, the shower room. The kitchen does comprise fitted units and also a window and door to the side elevation. Completing the ground floor is the shower room which has a step-in shower cubicle, w.c, wash handbasin sink and also a window to the side elevation.

To the first floor the landing area leads to the two bedrooms and also a further staircase to the second floor. The main bedroom is a generous size with views over Front Street whilst bedroom two is a smaller double or generous single room for a property of this nature.

To the second floor, the Attic is accessed via the original staircase and has not been transformed into a bedroom which may be a possibility, subject to any planning requirements. This area may be ideal for a home office or indeed playroom/craft room.

Externally, to the rear of the home, there are three brick built outbuildings for storage and also access behind the adjoining home which leads to the front. We have been informed that there are no rights of way through this property's gardens.

Please note:

This property will require a large amount of work and would suggest that clients in a cash position or with low mortgage requirements be ideal candidates.

Furthermore, Sowerby does have a preservation order in place and should changes to the home be required, they may need to have planning permission/consent.
