Heath House

The origins of Heath House date back to the mid seventeenth century, but the Heath property is now converted in to five high end homes, each containing protected, original features.

Part of the house was designed by architect James Paine in his early career, with the stone cantilevered staircase hall a prototype for his work in Belford Hall and Gosforth Park.

Electric gates open to a driveway with parking, and a Yorkshire stone paved area has views over the enclosed gardens and the village green.
