A fine and handsome home designed in the late 18th century by John Carr, who was also responsible for Harewood House and Constable Burton Hall. It faces south overlooking a full cobbled terrace towards the woodland beyond. There are delightful walled gardens to each side of the property. One is a traditional walled garden with lawns and well stocked cottage style borders. The other is larger, and includes a plantsman s garden with box hedging and stone walkways.

In addition there is a double garage and a terraced woodland garden to the far end. The woodland is accessible on foot via a gate directly opposite The Old Coach House and runs directly down to the trout stream, where the property enjoys single bank fishing rights. The woodland is carpeted in snowdrops in the spring, followed by wild garlic and other indigenous plants.

The property is approached via the cobbled terrace which runs the full width of the building. There are a number of entrances into the property; two sets of French doors which open into the drawing room, French doors opening into the second reception room and a wide wooden door opening into the kitchen. The kitchen is dual aspect with quarry tiled flooring an oil-fired Aga with a range of wall and floor cupboards units and an sink set on a brick plinth. From here a door opens to

the drawing room. This is a delightful room set in two parts with two sets of dressed stone arched windows and French doors opening to the terrace, there is decorative cornice to the ceiling and picture rails. A focal point to this room is a fireplace with a wooden surround, stone inset and hearth and open grate. From here a return spindle staircase leads to the first floor landing, there is access to a useful cloakroom/WC, and large wooden French doors open to the second reception toom. This room could be used for a range of purposes, it is currently used as a studio and has French doors opening to the terrace, and a stable door which opens to the walled garden and a delightful seating area.

First Floor

The staircase from the reception room rises to a galleried landing which is used as a study. It is dual aspect with wooden shuttered windows to the rear and a sash window to the front elevation. From here there is access to two large, double en-suite bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is a substantial room with two sash windows overlooking the woods, an exposed beamed ceiling and a stone fire surround with an open grate. From here there is access to an en-suite bathroom, as

well as a door leading through to an inner hall which provides access to a walk-in cupboard and the laundry. The laundry has a external door which exits at the top of the stone steps down to the garden. The en-suite bathroom comprises a white suite with wood panel bath, pedestal wash hand basin, low level WC and bidet. The second bedroom is a double room with sash windows overlooking the woods and an exposed beamed ceiling.

The property is set in a truly idyllic setting backing onto mature woodland with a cobbled terrace allowing plenty on-site parking and two very distinctive gardens to each side.

The second garden has vehicular access onto a gravel drive allowing further on-site parking and
