Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Green Cottage occupies a prime position on the eastern side of the village from where there are extensive views over the adjoining countryside. In the village there is a church and a highly regarded public house whilst about 6 miles away to the south is the attractive Georgian market town of Pickering where a comprehensive range of facilities is available. The main A64 Leeds-Scarborough trunk road may be joined at Malton making for good communications with Scarborough, York and the commercial centres of West Yorkshire.

Constructed of attractive mellow stone elevations under a pantile roof with stone quoins and brick chimney stacks, Green Cottage is set well back from the main street and enjoys a fine open aspect over the eponymous green lying directly to the front of the house. In recent years the property has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of modernisation and upgrading to include the provision of UPVC double glazed windows virtually throughout and offers outstanding well appointed, flexible and elegant living accommodation of quite some style whilst at the same time managing to retain the original period feel of the property. Internally, there are a number of exposed ceiling timbers and beams, pine boarded doors and architraves, tiled floors and exposed stone elevations to certain ground floor rooms.

In order to make the fullest possible use of its open aspect to the east, the principal reception room lies at first floor level where there is a balcony and from where there are outstanding views over the adjoining countryside and which fact is possibly the property’s signature feature. The well equipped Kitchen has the benefit of polished granite worksurfaces, extensive store cupboards and drawers, integrated NEFF dishwasher and a two oven oil fired Aga with adjoining 4-ring LPG gas fired double oven Aga module offering flexibility for summer use. Much of the ground floor accommodation is linked, making it appear almost open plan in nature and makes for a great feeling of spaciousness thereby enhancing its flexibility of use and also of note is the fact that the principal Bedroom suite occupies the southern section of the ground floor. To the rear of the original house is the later addition of a Breakfast Room which in turn leads to a superb Conservatory from where French doors open to the gardens. These are walled on their northern side and to the front of which is a good bed containing a number of annuals and perennials to include Ceanothus and Juniper whilst adjoining is a good level lawn to the far end of which are which Sorbus and Prunus. Beyond lies a stone and pantile Garage with adjoining gravelled parking whilst immediately to the rear of the house is a further good sized gravelled turning and parking area.
