Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Throstle Nest House is a superbly renovated and extended detached farmhouse in a commanding position with glorious views down the Swale valley, currently the holiday home of the owner.

The house is situated on a quiet back road running opposite Gunnerside and Low Row in the heart of Swaledale. The farming hamlet of Crackpot is less than a mile away, with a smattering of farmsteads and cottages in the locality. There are lovely walks from the doorstep and panoramic views from every window.

The current owner has renovated and modernised the house to an exemplary standard, using renowned and respected local firm, Randall Orchard Construction to do the work. It has been extended to provide additional living space, with imaginative and contemporary design, with no compromise on quality or finish, and effectively rebuilt from the roof down. The property has been tanked by Peter Cox to protect from damp. It has oil fired central heating which is underfloor downstairs, with bespoke double glazing throughout, giving a high standard of insulation and energy efficiency.

Downstairs, there is a large, welcoming hall way which doubles as an office if required, through to a quality fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, a separate utility area and a downstairs cloak/boot room. There are fully glazed doors leading to the full height sitting room with multi fuel stove and multiple windows to take advantage of the views and light.

Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms sharing a house bathroom and a fabulous Master suite with en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes.

There is not a room in the house that doesn't have the joy of a picture of the surrounding countryside! Around the house, the gardens have been beautifully landscaped with flagged terraces and dry stone walls, to take advantage of the shifting sunshine. It is currently a successful Quality in Tourism 5* holiday letting cottage ( through Yorkshire Cottages (Wyndham) which is managed and serviced after every let by the owner, generating a turnover of over £25,000 after agency fees.

There is ample gated parking within the grounds and a gate leading through to the field, which is around 2.5 acres and currently grazed by the neighbouring farmer.
