8 Woodard House is one of just eight spacious apartments which have been created from an imposing period property which was itself the former Helmsley Workhouse erected in 1859 and constructed of attractive stone elevations under a slate roof with dressed stone window sills and lintels and with cill bands at first floor and eaves levels. The property is set well back from the road and stands in an elevated position with the front boundary delineated by a stone perimeter wall adjoining which is a good sized front lawn interspersed with a number of specimen trees to include Acer, Cherry, Sorbus and Whitebeam. There are twin gravelled driveways leading past each side of the property and leading to an ample parking area to the rear.

The apartment lies at first floor level and provides comfortable, well appointed living accommodation of some style with particular features being the high ceilings throughout, secondary glazing and the high standard of modern fittings in the Kitchen and Shower Room. A tiled Inner Hall with an entry phone gives direct access to all of the accommodation which includes a spacious Living/Dining Room arranged to the front elevation with a timber boarded floor and gas fireplace on a stone hearth. The Kitchen is well equipped with tiled floor, worksurfaces with cupboards and drawers beneath, stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap, integrated refrigerator-freezer unit, SMEG 5-ring gas hob and fan assisted electric oven with chrome extractor fan hood above. Both bedrooms lie to the rear of the property whilst completing the picture is a well appointed Shower Room with tiled floor and a suite of shower cubicle, low level flush WC, pedestal washbasin and heated towel rail.

The renowned Georgian market town of Helmsley lies on the southern edge of the North York Moors National Park where the River Rye descends from the North York Moors in a southerly direction towards the Vale of Pickering. It is rightly regarded as the true jewel in the crown of this beautiful part of the countryside. There is a full range of local facilities to include churches, public houses, banks, a post office and a wide variety of retail outlets. Of particular interest is the nearby mansion house of Duncombe Park which lies at the heart of its eponymous Estate and whose parkland adjoins the town centre. Of equal note is the proximity of the well known co-educational public school of Ampleforth College which lies approximately 4 miles away to the south where there is a well regarded Sports Centre offering a variety of facilities to the general public. 3 miles away in nearby Beadlam is the Ryedale Secondary school.
