A charming property providing well proportioned accommodation of significant style and character with a lovely enclosed courtyard garden to the rear, occupying a peaceful backwater position just off the market square of this historic market town.
5 Millgate occupies a lovely quiet backwater position within a stone’s throw of the feature central market square of this historic market town. Located in the beautiful region of Lower Wensleydale, Masham is situated on the north eastern edge of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty next to the beautiful River Ure. With two famous breweries, the biggest market square in Yorkshire, an annual sheep fair and a thriving arts culture, Masham is a fantastic place to live with pubs, cafes and restaurants and lovely scenic walks. More extensive everyday facilities are available in the nearby city of Ripon and the market towns of Bedale and Leyburn.
5 Millgate is a unique property with an interesting history. It is made up of three distinct buildings, connected internally, including the old Poor House which is believed to date from 1580, Masham’s Elizabethan jail and the town’s fire station, both of which are Grade II listed. The property has been completely renovated by the current owners, is beautifully presented and retains a wealth of inherent charm and character. To the rear there is a delightful courtyard garden from where views are enjoyed over the town’s cricket pitch and countryside beyond.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors and includes an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen with an adjoining breakfast area, cloakroom/shower room and a study/store room. On the first floor is the principal bedroom which has an en suite shower room, an additional house shower room, with two further bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor - one of the bedrooms could utilise the bathroom as an en suite.
Outside, there is a useful garage/store providing secure parking with additional nearby on street parking. To the rear is a delightful enclosed garden with a split level flagged terrace, gravelled area and a summer house.
