Idyllically situated, enjoying a commanding location with breathtaking dales views, 'Oakley Side House' is a detached stone residence of outstanding quality which is available on the open market for only the second time since being imaginatively created by the conversion of a former stone barn in 1974. Requiring an internal inspection to be appreciated, this unique dwelling of surprisingly spacious proportions, offers the enviable combination of the character of a period property with the conveniences of modern day living. The situation, on the valley side, overlooking the meandering River Esk, commands an exceptional outlook to Fryup Dale and Danby Crag to the south, thus enjoying day long sunshine to all front rooms and the lovely landscaped gardens. Whilst Oakley Side House is independently located, with private approach, it is nevertheless only a short distance from Lealholm and Danby, two lovely villages where basic shops and amenities, including a railway station, can be found. Whitby, Guisborough and Teesside are within easy commuting distance via the A171 Moor Road. Rail links to London Kings Cross are available from Darlington, as are air links to many parts of Europe and beyond from Durham Tees Valley Airport. Danby is within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty with a variety of moorland, dales and coastline, offering endless fine walks for the country lover. Externally, as well as the lovely landscaped gardens, Oakley Side House benefits from a large timber garage and a range of useful stone outbuildings.
