The property is situated in a beautiful countryside setting, enjoying easy access to the sought-after Spa town of Harrogate, with its excellent local amenities and services.

To the ground floor there is a wealth of flexible living accommodation, with exposed timber ceiling beams lending warmth and character. The 26ft sitting room, with an impressive stone fireplace, now houses a wood burning stove and the double aspect, stone mullion windows flood the room with natural light throughout the day. There is also a dining room with French doors opening onto the rear gardens. The country kitchen has solid wood worktops, plus an integrated hob and oven, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen leads through into a useful utility room. There is also an office on the ground floor along with two cloakrooms. A large rear lobby makes for a convenient access from the drive, which acts as a good coat/boot room.

The four double bedrooms are all well-proportioned, with the master featuring an en-suite bathroom. There is also a large family bathroom which has a bath and separate shower.

To the front of the property there is a tarmac driveway, providing plenty of parking space, and a beautifully maintained lawn. The double garage is accessed to the side of the property. To the rear there is an appealing walled, south facing garden, with a paved sun-terrace giving way to an area of lawn and established borders. An original stone well, which is about 150ft deep, is thought to be the original well of the farmhouse.
