Situated on the edge of this popular North York Moors village, The Old Vicarage is a sizable stone built house, offering an abundance of space arranged over three floors. The property enjoys elevated views over the village and beyond and sits roughly in the middle of its own mature gardens.
The ground floor accommodation is most spacious and centred around a wide hallway with access to all four reception rooms including a large drawing room, similar size dining room, sitting room and library/study. At the rear of the house is a good size kitchen/breakfast room with a separate pantry and door through to a conservatory/garden room.
Access to the first floor and principal bedrooms is via the main staircase and a secondary rear staircase which leads back down to the kitchen area. A good size central landing gives access to the master bedroom with store cupboard, three further double bedrooms, house bathroom and bedroom five/study. From the landing a second staircase rises to the second floor which houses two attic bedrooms, ample storage space and shower room.
The property enjoys mature, tree studded, gardens, with a formal lawn to the front of the property and additional areas of lawn to the side and rear of the house. The current owners have constructed a decked area large enough to accommodate a table and chairs and enjoying spectacular views.
From the road, a tarmac driveway leads up to the side of the property passing a good size timber workshop. At the top of the driveway there is a parking area and garage/stores.
