The house stands high on the hillside over looking Brandsby village, and the panoramic views are unquestionably some of the best in North Yorkshire – the view takes in York Minster to the south and stretches as far as RAF Menwith Hill to the west.  There is a separate access with driveway to the stables on the north west side of the property and to the south a large agricultural building (75” x 40”) with access from the village road. The house faces south west and there is a large terrace to the front, lawned gardens and a beautifully landscaped side garden with raised beds. The land is fenced or hedged, with a southerly slope. There are no public footpaths or bridleways that cross the land.

Brandsby lies at the edge of the most beautiful, undulating country at the foot of the Howardian Hills.  In this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the Vale of York gives way to rolling, wooded terrain, and Kirkhills occupies a particularly enviable position. The historic village of Brandsby with its 18th century church lies a mile away, and the market town of Easingwold with its numerous shops, supermarkets and facilities lies five miles to the west. A range of outstanding schools are nearby, including Crayke C of E Primary (2 miles) and one of the UK’s leading independent schools, Ampleforth College (4 miles).
