Full description

Arguably one of the prettiest and admired properties in Guisborough, Overbeck Cottage was originally built in 1876 as the gardener's cottage of 'Overbeck', an important Victorian mansion which was constructed in the same year and designed by the eminent architect, Alfred Whitehouse. In 1944 the property became separate from the 'Overbeck' Estate and was sympathetically remodelled to provide to quite charming residence which we know today. Having picturesque white painted rendered elevations under a handsome roof of green Cumberland slate, the cottage has, under the hand of the present owner has gone through an extensive renovation and extension programme, with great attention being paid to every detail and only by internal inspection can one possibly appreciate the stylish, elegant and versatile accommodation which is offered. Two of the bedrooms are at ground level, allowing use either as bedrooms or reception rooms, dependent upon the needs of the purchaser. Another particular feature is that in addition to the main building there is a self-contained annex offering, in effect, service accommodation for a house keeper/carer or a 'granny' or 'teenager' flat or as a casual holiday letting accommodation. 'Overbeck Cottage' stands in extensive grounds of 1/5th of an acre which have been beautifully landscaped over the years and afford complete privacy and seclusion, the exquisite rear garden offering a real haven of peace and tranquillity. Stokesley Road is, without doubt, one of the premier residential areas of Guisborough and yet is within a comfortable walking distance of the historic town centre, with its range of shopping facilities and amenities. Guisborough is well served for both Primary and Secondary schooling and is conveniently situated for access to the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, the Coast and Industrial centres of Teesside.

On leaving Guisborough Town Centre proceed in a westerly direction leaving Westgate and proceeding into West End. Once into West End proceed to its junction with Middlesbrough Road and at this point bear left into Stokesley Road. Once into Stokesley Road turn into the 5th gateway on the left hand side which is the ‘Overbeck Cottage' drive.

The Annex 
As previously mentioned this self-contained annex represents ideal service accommodation for domestic/caring staff or alternatively accommodation for an elderly relative or teenager or indeed casual holiday letting accommodation.

There is a pretty arch and gate to the side of the house and rear garden really is an absolute joy, having been most thoughtfully landscaped. The rear garden is designed, in effect, into a series of distinct areas, each with its own character.
