Ground Floor

The front door to the property opens into the central entrance hall. Turning left from here leads straight through to the spacious and light-filled living room, which benefits from a feature fireplace and opens up to the snug: a comfortable and cosy space looking out over the surrounding countryside. Double French doors lead into the garden room, which offers stunning, panoramic views over the moors from three sides.

To the rear of the property, the stylish and well-appointed kitchen features a central island with a wooden worktop, integrated wine fridge and additional storage. There are built-in appliances, a kick-space heater and room for a Range oven with a large, stainless steel extractor hood above. The adjacent utility room is plumbed for appliances and provides further space to keep the essentials neatly out of the way.

The large dining room can easily accommodate a family-sized table and chairs and has double French doors opening out to the patio. A door from here leads through to one of the ground floor bedrooms, which incorporates a modern en suite shower room and fitted wardrobes. The remaining ground floor bedroom has fitted wardrobes with mirror-fronted sliding doors and is serviced by the ground floor shower room, which is fully tiled and has a walk-in shower.

First Floor

The first floor landing has a Velux window providing natural sunlight with an alcove suitable for use as a small study or reading area. There are doors to two double bedrooms at either side of the property, both with fitted storage and additional Velux windows.

The stylish first floor bathroom has fully-tiled walls, a vanity hand wash basin with storage underneath and a bath with shower over.


Occupying a prime position on the fringe of this small community, the property is surrounded by glorious countryside and enjoys breathtaking views from its rooms and gardens. There are wonderful walks and bridleways right on the doorstop and the area benefits from the dark skies policy of the North Yorkshire Moors.

From the main road, there is a driveway leading up to an electrically-operated gate set within the hedged boundary and continuing up to the detached, stone-built garage and storage area. Sweeping pathways run up to the front door and around to the rear of the house, where there is a south-facing private patio edged with shrubs and borders, partially shaded by trees and hedges. There is a further patio to the front of the property, occupying a lovely spot with far-reaching views of the surrounding fields and moors.

The gardens include stretches of lawn, trees, seating areas and terraced flower beds filled with mature planting and wonderful views.
