Full description

The Forest is a substantial six bedroomed detached farm house surrounded by landscaped walled gardens in a rural yet easily accessible setting. This imposing and attractive Victorian property is situated in a peaceful hamlet which lies only 8 miles from the market town of Richmond and has easy access to the A1(M). The property was built as part of a model farm dating to the 19th century and has retained a number of original features. There is additional adjoining land of up to 12 acres available by separate negotiation.

Ground Floor - An entrance hall leads to an octagonal reception hall which provides access to the principle ground floor accommodation. To the front of the property there is a formal dining room and a drawing room both of which benefit from open fires and have windows with views over the house gardens, also providing lots of natural light. The refurbished kitchen is open plan and also provides living and dining space which suits many modern living requirements. The kitchen is fitted with a range of handmade bespoke wooden floor and wall mounted units with polished Kashmir gold granite work surfaces, a range cooker and further integrated appliances. From the kitchen there is access to a rear porch and inner hallway which in turn leads to a utility/boiler room, a WC and a family room and additional sitting room/study.

First Floor - A curved staircase leads to the first floor landing with an original art deco style stained glass window. The master bedroom and two further double rooms enjoy open views across the gardens and surrounding farm land. A modern house bathroom includes a Villeroy and Boch air bath, a large walk in shower, a low flush WC and pedestal wash hand basin. The inner landing gives access to three further double bedrooms, a large laundry cupboard and a shower room. There is amble space and provision to alter the accommodation to provide en-suites to 3 of the bedrooms which would involve incorporating the laundry room and a smaller double room.

Externally - There is a gravelled drive way leading to the front of the property with two separate entrances. The drive is surrounded by landscaped formal gardens which extend to the south encompassing herbaceous borders, various seating areas and a large walled garden. There is also a courtyard with further patio and access to a number of useful stores and kennels.

Directions - Postcode DL10 6ES. From the village of Scorton take the road towards Northallerton. In the village of Bolton on Swale turn left past the church and continue for approximately 2 miles until you reach Forest where the property will be visible on the right hand side.
