Full description

This hidden gem is nestled in amongst the beautiful rolling countryside which surrounds Grosmont. The quirky 2 bedroom semi-detached house is laid out over 4 floors and enjoys spectacular rural views. Built in 1850 this is a property with charm in abundance.

The lower ground floor of the property is made up of a utility room with plumbing for an automatic washing machine which opens out into a lovely enclosed rear yard which, as well as offering a great space to sit and relax, also provides useful space for storing spare LPG central heating gas bottles. The bin-store is located to the side of the enclosed yard and there is an area of common access there.

The ground floor boasts a fitted kitchen with a seating area for dining, a good-size lounge with a 'Town and Country Fires' multi-fuel stove and a useful storage cupboard. There is a further enclosed front yard, which can be accessed from the kitchen, and has an 'outside w.c' within.

To the first floor you will find a family bathroom and a rear-facing double bedroom with a wonderful outlook.

An overall attic room covers the second floor and the views from the window, at this level, stretch for miles and miles a across the surrounding rolling countryside.

The house in heated by LPG Gas cylinders which, the vendors have informed us, are extremely cost effective and efficient compared to Oil. The current owners use around three 47 kilo bottles every 9 months.

There has been planning permission granted, in the past, to create a third bedroom over the kitchen area. This could be a great option for a discerning buyer who may be hoping to expand.

Located approximately 5 miles from Whitby town Grosmont is a village with a rich history having been a centre of ironstone mining in the nineteenth century. Today, the village is dominated by the North Yorkshire Moors Railway heritage steam and diesel services running from Pickering to Grosmont and, during the summer season, from Grosmont to Whitby. The steam train service runs 18 miles through stunning moorland and valleys. The trains and regular bus service (number 99) make this a well connected location which attracts visitors from far and wide. This village has something to offer everyone with its countryside, specialist shops and cafes. Grosmont is the perfect location for anyone wishing to experience the natural beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors.

If you are looking for something a little bit different, in a stunning location and with views to-die-for then you need look no further than this wonderful house.
