One of the most photographed properties in Helmsley - a picturesque period stone cottage standing in beautifully maintained gardens, bordered by a meandering beck, with a separate stone outbuilding and off street parking to the rear.
Believed to date from the early 18th century and formerly 2 adjoining estate workers cottages, Beckside Cottage has been sympathetically reconfigured and extended to form this surprisingly well balanced character cottage. Recently re-roofed and re-pointed, the property is presented in remarkably good condition both inside and out - the accommodation having been neutrally decorated and well maintained throughout.
Each room has been thoughtfully modernised but they all retain a real sense of character and period charm, the living room and kitchen both being nicely proportioned but cosy at the same time. In addition to the 2 first floor bedrooms and central bathroom, there are a number of useful utility/store rooms, as well as a separate stone outbuilding.
The property occupies a slightly elevated position in a sizeable garden plot, separated from the Main Street by a meandering brook. Access is either via a short wooden bridge and along a stone paved path to the front or stone steps to the rear leading from a gravelled off street parking area.
