Property Description

Key features


Full description

An impressive double fronted four bedroom village home of significant local historic interest with excellent family accommodation of a light and flexible nature amidst excellent garden areas with double garage and car parking.

This attractive limestone built double fronted village home has formed part of Hillam's historic street scene since the early 19th century, having been one of the original village farmhouses and then a girl's boarding school until the 1960's.

The property enjoys a remarkably high level of privacy to the front which abuts the village Green with delightful ornamental gardens and further south facing lawns at the rear. The layout, which benefits from comprehensive double glazing and oil fired heating (mains gas available for connection from rear cul-de-sac) comprises a central reception hall, sitting room, separate dining room, full depth family breakfast kitchen with integrated appliances, master bedroom with its own en-suite shower room, three further family bedrooms and a recently upgraded house bathroom.

A rear driveway gives access to a larger than average double garage and there are excellent garden areas to the front and rear of Rose Lea Cottage. Pretty front gardens are accessed from the village Green via an ornamental gate and these 'frame' the attractive elevations of this period home whilst the rear gardens provide further recreation space for children and pets.

The popular North Yorkshire village of Hillam is a perfect setting for the busy commuter and family seeking to combine the benefits of a strong village community spirit with ease of access to the major commercial centres of West and North Yorkshire via the A63, M62 and A1/M1 link roads. The local Monk Fryston primary school is continually amongst the top rated in the county and there is a Pre-School of equally high regard.

Proceeding from the A1/M1 on the A63 into the village of Monk Fryston, turn right on to Water Lane, continuing into the village of Hillam. The village Green will be immediately in front of you where Rose Lea Cottage will be identified by our For Sale board.
