Adjacent to the living room is the dining room which retains a built in double storage cupboard, window to the rear elevation and access to the kitchen.

The kitchen will require complete replacement though consideration to incorporate the original range would be encouraged. There is ample storage potential and creation of a utility room and cloakroom within this space. Completing this room is the window and door leading to the garden area.

The first floor landing area leads to both the front and rear of the property with doors to the three bedrooms, bathroom, attic and also a useful storage cupboard.

Following the landing to the rear of the home, there is also a double bedroom, with fireplace and the bathroom which will require modernisation.

The second floor attic is the original open space and, subject to local planning and building permission, could be an excellent bedroom adding value to the property

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.
