Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
A rare opportunity to purchase a fine country home, set in approximately two acres, including stables and paddock. The property enjoys a sunny southerly aspect with beautiful views of North Yorkshire.

The house was built in 1953 by the architects Warley and Richardson of Darlington, in the Arts and Crafts style. Norlands has been in the same family since then but, with great reluctance, it has now come to the market. It has a Mouseman (Thompson of Kilburn) door, architrave and gate that were crafted around the time that Mouseman was working on the nearby Grade II Listed Church and surrounding area.

This five-bedroom, four reception room family home is positioned to enjoy an open southerly aspect with stunning views of North Yorkshire towards Roseberry Topping and the Cleveland Hills. The property offers further potential and enjoys a paddock and small orchard that can be seen from the house, along with fine brick built stables, fodder room and tack store.

Norlands

The house was built in 1953 by the architects Warley and Richardson of Darlington, in the Arts and Crafts style. Norlands has been in the same family since then but, with great reluctance, it has now come to the market. It has a Mouseman (Thompson of Kilburn) door, architrave and gate that were crafted around the time that Mouseman was working on the nearby Grade II Listed Church and surrounding area.

This five bedroom, four reception room family home is positioned to enjoy an open southerly aspect with stunning views of North Yorkshire towards Roseberry Topping and the Cleveland Hills. The property offers further potential and enjoys a paddock and small orchard that can be seen from the house, along with fine brick built stables, fodder room and tack store.

Accommodation

The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall, with an impressive oak timber staircase and oak parquet flooring which continues throughout the principal ground floor rooms.

The large living room, with central fireplace, enjoys a far-reaching vista over the gardens, paddock and hills beyond. The dining room continues the spacious feel and has a hatch through to the practical modern kitchen, which has views to the rear and a courtesy door into the double garage, which has an electrical car charging point. The comfortable family room or study opens up into the garden room, with windows enjoying the views of Roseberry Topping and a door leading out to the rear entertaining terrace. The cloakroom / W.C, along with a utility room, complete the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor landing gives access to all five bedrooms, with the principal bedroom enjoying an en suite bathroom. A family bathroom at the opposite end of the house, along with a further W.C, service the remaining bedrooms, all of which feature a vanity sink unit.

Externally

The south facing, landscaped gardens offer seating and entertaining options on the upper and lower terraces, including a patio terrace immediately adjacent to the house: a lovely place to enjoy the sunshine whilst overlooking the gardens and paddock. A small orchard lies at the end of the paddock and there are areas of lawn and planting, surrounded by a variety of mature trees.

The front of the property is partially hidden by trees and is accessed via a solid oak gate, made by Thompson of Kilburn, opening to the driveway, which leads to the stables and garage. A lower terrace, accessed by a single wrought iron gate to the side of the main lawn, is ideal for a barbecue or outdoor entertaining.

Paddock and Stables

The grass paddock measures 1.22 acres, including the small orchard, and is hedged and fenced with gated access. A large, traditional, brick built stable block, including three stables, large fodder room and tack store, sits adjacent to the house.

The property would be of interest to equestrian enthusiasts but the large footprint of the stable block also gives an opportunity for alternative use such as guest flat, studio, office or extra facilities for the house should they be so desired, subject to relevant permission.

Boundaries

Boundaries are a mix of hedging, fencing and black estate railings to the north boundary and west boundary of the property.

Tenure

The property is offered freehold with vacant possession on completion.
