Fox and Hounds House is a most attractive village property which is believed to date from the mid to late 1700s. The house, which is understood to be amongst the oldest in Westow, has a fascinating history, starting life as a farmhouse but then later operated as the village pub until the early 1930s. The property retains a significant amount of its original character as well as features such as ceiling cornicing, panelled internal doors, sash windows and window shutters and is rightly deserving of its Grade II Listed status.

The house enjoys a versatile layout, which allows for part of it to be occupied as a semi-independent annexe. In total there are six bedrooms and three bathrooms, the floor area extending to nearly 2,400 sq.ft, excluding the cellar. The accommodation includes entrance hall, an elegantly proportioned sitting room with open fire, a dining room which opens onto a kitchen with AGA, a utility room, breakfast room and living room. The rear hall provides access to the garden as well as stairs to both the first floor and cellar.

The gardens lie entirely to the rear of the house and are perfectly south facing. The majority is laid to lawn and interspersed with shrub borders and several trees including apple and fig. A flagged terrace stretches across part of the house, making for a very pleasant spot to eat outside and overlooks a pretty lily pond. The garden includes a productive vegetable patch and at the far end is a useful stable block. A gravelled drive leads to a generously proportioned garage with loft above.

Westow is an attractive conservation village set in pleasant countryside, in an area where the landscape of the Howardian Hills opens out into the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds. The village benefits from a highly regarded pub and restaurant, The Blacksmith's Arms and has a well-supported cricket club. The nearby market town of Malton (6 miles) offers a good range of amenities, including shops, restaurants and cafes, tennis courts, swimming pool, gym, cinema and excellent schools. There is easy access to York, approximately 14 miles, with all its varied facilities, including a mainline railway station with direct services to London Kings Cross in less than 2 hours.
