The famous Aysgarth Falls is less than a 10 minute walk away with many well known walks, including the Herriot Way, passing near the village.

Northampton House - This beautiful dales property is situated in an enviable location in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in the popular and well known village of Aysgarth. The traditional stone faade belies the extent of the contemporary finishes within, having been fully and recently renovated to a high standard throughout. The renovation works have been sympathetically carried out and the property retains many original and traditional features throughout including stone flag floors, exposed beams and sash-style windows.

With four double bedrooms (including master en-suite bathroom) Northampton House is the perfect family home offering well thought out, generous reception space with five reception rooms or alternatively the ideal property from which to work from home.

Outside there are relatively low maintenance, enclosed gardens which provide the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the stunning 180 degree views. There is also ample outside storage and parking for several vehicles.

Ground Floor - The front entrance door opens into the living room where there is a bespoke hand-carved stone fireplace (housing a multi-fuel stove), exposed beams, window seat beneath the sash window and handsome oak flooring under foot. This continues into the formal dining room, hallway, study and snug - both of which have charming views to the rear.

There are several steps down into the large morning room which has attractive stone flag flooring throughout, enviable views from the low set window seat to the rear and access to the utility room and separate downstairs WC (there is an additional front entrance door from the utility room). With further steps down, the morning room opens out into the kitchen which has a magnificent four-oven Aga, granite worktops and oak units as well as charming scenic views to the rear.

First Floor - The quirky central staircase, with feature arch window to the half-landing, has been relatively untouched due to its characterful, uneven qualities! Bedrooms Two and Three have south-facing windows to the front, complete with traditional window seat beneath whilst Bedroom Four has enviable views to the hills beyond. The fully tiled family shower room has a white modern suite and double length walk-in shower.

The master bedroom, with continued oak flooring from the landing as with all the bedrooms, has far-reaching westerly views to Upper Wensleydale and a capacious en-suite bathroom complete with walk-in shower and separate bath.

Gardens - To the front of the property, enclosed within traditional wrought iron railings, the front garden is laid to lawn and stone flags with herbaceous borders and several mature shrubs. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn and has the most beautiful views across Wensleydale with a paved seating area and patio creating a fantastic space from which to enjoy the panoramic vista. There are mature planted flower beds with traditional stone wall boundaries to all sides.

Outbuildings/Stores, Basement And Attic - There are two stone outbuildings/stores both with electric connected which provide excellent outside storage. There is also a timber log store to the rear patio area. The (dry) basement room provides ideal, additional storage space. The extensive attic is fully boarded and has light and electric points.
