Property Description

Full description

Occupying a position that many consider to be one of the finest and most desirable in this picturesque National Park village Midstream Cottage is an appealing individual residence overlooking the beck at the meeting of Beck Isle with Priestmans Lane within the central area of the village rightly designated as a conservation area. The original house, which is probably of mid 19th century origin has an architectural design in the style of a coach house, was altered and extended by the present owners approximately 20 years ago. Comfortable and spacious accommodation is provided together with decent sized garden, generous car parking and large garage. The accommodation includes a reception hall, drawingroom, diningroom, study, spacious fitted kitchen, utility, cloakroom and shower room on the ground floor, spacious landings, three double bedrooms one with en suite and house bathroom on the first floor. Some up-dating and up-grading of the accommodation should now be anticipated.
Thornton-le-Dale is often regarded as one of Yorkshire's most picturesque villages and the area around Beck Isle and Priestmans Lane is undoubtedly the most eye-catching. The 'cottage' is within a short beckside amble of the central facilities and, equally as close, up stream, access into fine open countryside leading towards Ellerburn and beyond into Dalby Forest.
Thornton-le-Dale lies within the southern boundary of the North York Moors National Park. It boasts excellent local facilities and amenities including primary school, doctor's surgery, pharmacy, a good range of local shops and excellent leisure and recreaional facilities. York, Scarborough and Whitby are all within half an hours drive or so.
