Property SummaryAn exciting and rare opportunity to acquire a newly-renovated cottage in the heart of a quintessential North Yorkshire village, boasting fully-restored terraced gardens, an integral garage, a substantial kitchen/diner, authentic feature fireplace and a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, dressing room separate en-suite bathroom and patio doors to private terrace.
Within easy reach of both York and Harrogate, served by an outstanding school and close to one of the regions best-known country inns, the property is also within a few minutes drive of the A1 (M)
On a quiet street a little away from the centre of the village, the traditional cottage is still within easy reach of open countryside as well as local amenities, including buses to York and Harrogate as well as the market towns of Knaresborough and Boroughbridge running regularly from Thorny Hill Lane. The locally-renowned Punch Bowl Inn is within 500m, serving quality pub grub and real ales, while the village post office and convenience store is just a little further on.
The village also boasts its own Church of England voluntary aided primary school - rated as outstanding by Ofsted in 2104.
Travel by car is relatively simple, with York and its mainline railway station within a 20-minute drive south; the proximity of the A1 (M) a little to the west also offers access to the wider motorway network while Leeds Bradford International Airport is also with a 40-minute drive.
The front of the house is adjacent to the gently-sloping pavement with access to the single garage with up-and-over door via a raised kerb. External doors offer access to either the sitting room or the kitchen/diner with a passageway between the cottage and the neighbouring home leading to the rear of the property.
Here, a completely renovated terraced garden now includes a raised patio paved with York stone offering direct access to the master bedroom on the first floor. Bordered by head-high timber fence panels offering privacy from neighbouring homes, stepped beds await a new owner with green fingers to add flowers and shrubs. Additional smaller terraces also offer additional options for outdoor seating and recreation.
Although access to the property is possible through an external door to the sitting room, the main entrance opens onto the extensive 30 4 kitchen/diner which is large enough to accommodate additional living space if required.
Boasting a tiled floors the kitchen will have ample cupboard and drawer units and centre island, a double-bowled sink will be located beneath a window overlooking the terraces to the rear, which can be accessed via French doors to the right.
An internal door opens onto the utility room with downstairs cloakroom beyond. A separate door opens onto the study while an archway to the left leads through to the large sitting room.
A staircase leads from here to the first floor but the eye is drawn to the second feature fireplace, a door beyond opens onto the family room, ideal as a space to relax or perhaps as a music room or games room for older children who need a little space of their own.
The stairs to the first floor rise to a landing where internal doors open onto four bedrooms - one to the rear of the house with an en suite bathroom also equipped with its own WC and hand basin.
The house bathroom is also located on the first floor and includes a bath, WC and hand basin while a short flight of stairs leads up to the large master bedroom, with internal doors opening onto its own dressing room and en suite bathroom, also equipped with WC and hand basin.
The property benefits from loft insulation and double glazing with warmth and hot water provided by a programmable, gas-fired central heating system with a separate thermostat and individual controls fitted to all radiators.
