An impressive and particularly spacious 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom detached house, beautifully set amidst over 2 acres of gardens and grounds with an all weather tennis court, occupying a lovely south west facing position overlooking National Trust land.
Plum Tree House occupies a lovely position on the southern edge of this historic and picturesque village, which has an extremely popular public house/restaurant and a village church. The village is well located within easy access of the surrounding towns of Richmond, Darlington, Bedale and Northallerton – all of which offer an excellent range of daily facilities. For the commuter, the property is situated within 2 miles of Scotch Corner, which provides access onto the A1 (both North and South) and the A66. The Mainline station at Darlington provides a service to London King’s Cross within 2 hours 20 minutes and there are airports at the major business centres of Newcastle, Teesside and Leeds.
Plum Tree House is an outstanding five bedroom detached property which has never been offered to the open market. It has been specifically designed and furnished to an extremely high standard in order to offer sumptuous surroundings in which to entertain. The house has seated over 100 for dinner.
It occupies a lovely private setting amidst over 2 acres (0.8 ha) of principally lawned gardens and grounds, bordering the protected grounds of Moulton Hall, a 17th Century manor house owned and maintained by the National Trust.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes a spacious and welcoming reception hall with hand painted walls in the style of Monet’s water lilies, a superb drawing room enjoying a lovely outlook over the gardens, a lovely dining room with an open pitched ceiling and walls decorated with murals depicting Roman scenes, an excellent everyday living kitchen, family room and a useful games/entertainment room. The principal staircase leads from the reception hall up to a minstrels gallery which incorporates a useful study/home office. There is an impressive principal bedroom, decorated in French chateau style, with an extensive range of fitted furniture and a large en suite bathroom featuring a sunken 60 gallon air bath. There is also a guest bedroom which has an en suite bathroom. A secondary staircase leads from the family room up to the eastern wing where there are three additional double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom, and a house bathroom.
Outside, the property is approached via double electrically operated entrance gates with a large gravelled area providing extensive parking and leading to the detached triple garage, garden store and an additional store.
There is a large terrace which adjoins the house to the south and west, providing an ideal area for summer entertaining. Beyond, again to the south and west, lie the fantastic gardens and grounds which feature sweeping lawned areas with some magnificent specimen trees, bordered to the south by Uckerby Beck and adjoining the aforementioned National Trust land. The setting is delightful and affords much privacy. To the west there is an enclosed all weather tennis court and a hidden courtyard garden.
