Situation and Amenities

Hunton is a picturesque and sought after village at the foot of Wensleydale. It is noted for its attractive centre with playing fields, primary school, public house and village hall facilities. The thriving market town of Leyburn is around 5 miles away and has a weekly market, several hotels, restaurants, public houses and many speciality shops. There are secondary schools in Leyburn and Richmond. The A1(M) is within good reach following the A1(M) upgrade with an access point at Colburn around 6 miles away.


The property is entered from the cottage garden on Church Bank directly into a large open plan living room with a cosy seating area and log burner. From here, an opening leads directly through to the inner hall with the staircase rising to the first floor with an oak newel post and handrail and glass side panels. The inner hall also grants access to a cloakroom/WC, the study/playroom, and a door opening to a large light and airy open plan living dining kitchen. This room comprises the breakfast kitchen which runs through to a family room and the dining room beyond, all of which have Travertine flooring and there are French doors opening from both the family room and the dining room onto the terrace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and floor cupboard units with a cream frontage and wooden work surfaces incorporating an inset one and half bowl sink unit, dishwasher, wine fridge and large Range style cooker with gas hob, electric oven and granite splashback. There is a complimentary island with a dark grey frontage and granite countertop incorporating a breakfast bar. There are two doors off the kitchen, one is to a walk-in larder/pantry and the other is to a lobby which accesses the side drive. Continuing through from the dining room there is a door leading to an inner hall with a step change in the flooring, leading to the fourth ground floor en-suite bedroom and the boot room/utility. This has been cleverly thought out with the shower room being accessible both from the bedroom and the boot room/utility.

To the first floor there is a light and airy landing which provides access to all three bedrooms and the house bathroom/WC. The large master bedroom is located to the rear of the property, is dual aspect and has an en-suite shower room and a range of built-in wardrobes. The remaining two bedrooms are both double to the front elevation, one of which has an en-suite shower room.


Prospect House occupies a plot extending around 0.6 acres in all. The front garden is a classic cottage garden with lawn, flower beds, picket fence border. Immediately outside the family room and dining room there are French doors opening to an enclosed terrace, an ideal spot for alfresco dining. From here a couple of steps lead to a stone store and out to a gravelled parking area and the outbuildings. The gardens beyond the outbuildings are laid in three sections, the first being a lawned garden with a raised stone terrace/patio which is accessible from the back of one of the work rooms (this could be made into a lovely garden room), a play area and moving further down to an area which there is a chicken coup and features a wooded wild garden beyond which adjoins open fields.


There is an L-shaped arrangement of modern buildings which have three electric roller shutter doors. The largest of the garages has a washroom/WC within it and could take a camper van style of vehicle, the garage behind is a single garage and there is an additional brick single garage. In addition, there are two workshops, one of which has a roller shutter door to the gravelled parking area, the other of which opens out to the raised patio in the garden. This could make an ideal garden room.


The property is believed to be freehold with vacant possession on completion.
