An oak framed storm porch and reception hall with oak staircase leads into a stunning 674 sq ft (62.62 sq m) open plan living area that includes a 17 4 (5.28m) high vaulted ceiling with galleried landing above, wood burning stove, 2 sets of double doors opening out to the rear and 29 0 (8.85m) long dining and kitchen area featuring expansive granite worktops, dining bar, generous base and wall storage, AGA (electric) and integrated appliances.

A 20 8 (6.29m) long inner hallway leads off into 3 versatile double bedrooms (1 with en-suite shower room), a luxuriously appointed bathroom and a larger than average utility room.

The first floor galleried landing leads off into an outstanding principal bedroom suite that includes fitted wardrobes, dressing area, rural views and a stylish en-suite shower room.

Other internal features of note include oil fired central heating (underfloor heating on the ground floor with radiators on the first floor) and double glazing.


Externally a gated driveway provides generous parking and leads around to the rear of the property where there is a purpose built block of 4 stables, carport and an adjoining general purpose storage shed.

The beautifully landscaped 2 acre meadow was created by the current owners primarily to attract wildlife and to also provide an idyllic haven of untamed beauty of meandering pathways that lead through settled tall grasses that include Yorkshire Fog (Holcus Lanatus), a magnificent patchwork of wildflowers and a profusion of trees and specimen shrubs that include beech, oak, English walnut, tulip poplar, white beam and Italian alder complemented by variety of fruit trees and a kitchen garden.

Acting as a corridor from Yearsley forest and the stretch of wood heading down the valley towards the breathtaking Oulston reservoir, the garden attracts an abundance of wildlife and is resident to finches, hedge sparrows, field fayres and snipe in the winter.
