This recently renovated and refurbished former granary once formed part of neighbouring Gravel Pit Farm but now stands alone, enjoying magnificent views across landscaped gardens and picturesque countryside beyond. The property has been thoughtfully designed and finished to a high standard, each of the rooms being nicely proportioned, all benefiting from plenty of natural light and super views. The entire ground floor benefits from underfloor heating, the handmade contemporary shaker style kitchen includes a 4 oven Aga, the internal doors are all solid oak and the windows all hardwood and double glazed. This is a quality home in a lovely setting.
As part of the re-development the present owners have also constructed an attractive timber garage block with 3 open bays as well as a large timber barn with a store and utility room. In addition, on the opposite side of the garden, there is a timber workshop and garden store.
Whilst the property enjoys particularly rural surroundings, it remains within walking distance of the villages of Thornton le Clay and Foston where there is an excellent gastro pub, The White Swan, a primary school and a 12th century church. The surrounding villages, many of them once part of the nearby Castle Howard Estate, offer a further range of shops and good pubs, as well as a number of notable schools, including Terrington Primary and Ampleforth College.
