Full description

The Croft is a period home, originally two properties, which have been cleverly combined to create a generous and well laid out family home offering versatile living accommodation with far reaching views to rear.

Situation And Amenities - The Croft is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in the small, rural North Yorkshire village of East Layton which is a conservation area. Well located for commuting to the region, being easily accessible to the A66. There are shopping facilities at Mainsgill Farm Shop on the A66 and Scotch Corner Services which has an M&S.

The nearby historic market town of Richmond, which is a gate way of the Yorkshire Dales, offers a good range of amenities including national and local retailers, leisure centre, two secondary schools, and several primary schools. The station, a restored Victorian railway station, which features a restaurant, cinema and gallery is also home to a number of artists and food producers and is a popular attraction. Darlington is just over 10 miles away with larger retail outlets and a mainline railway station.

The Croft - The Croft is a period home, which was originally two properties, which have been cleverly combined to create a generous and well laid out family home. The Croft offers versatile living accommodation with two main reception rooms, a lovely conservatory and a family room which could work equally well as a garden room, home office or a fifth bedroom as there is a ground floor shower room just off.

The property has four double bedrooms with an en suite to the master. Occupying a lovely site with well stocked gardens and on-site parking to the front and rear terraced gardens with views over open countryside beyond

Accommodation - A distinctive oak front door leads to an entrance hall with bookshelves, a cast iron fireplace and a decorative cast iron radiator. From here there is access to the dining room, living room and a staircase leading to the first floor. The dining room has feature alcoves and leads to a beautiful conservatory with wood flooring and French doors opening out to the front garden.

The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and floor cupboard units incorporating an electric oven and hob, as well as an oil-fired Aga cooker (which also heats the water). There is plenty of space for a dining table and chairs and a Chinese slate floor runs the full length of the dining kitchen. From here there are steps leading up to an inner hall which provides access to the main living room, a shower room/wc and the family room.

The spacious living room enjoys views over the front gardens and a focal point of this room is a stone fire surround with elevated hearth and a Rayburn Rembrandt cast iron open fire. From here there is a door returning to the entrance hall.

The family room provides a range of uses having a small utility off, an LPG cast iron stove, and a door out to the rear patio garden area. This works well as an additional reception room, but could work equally well as an office or occasional bedroom having the benefit of a ground floor shower room in the inner hall.

To the first floor there are four double bedrooms. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The house bathroom is a special feature with a freestanding, roll top bath, step in shower, handbasin and high level wc. There is also a large airing cupboard.

Externally - The Croft is accessed by a gravelled front drive with double gates and on-site parking. The attractive private front garden has a well-maintained lawn, established borders and an ornamental pond with water feature. The east-facing front wall of the house has a well-established wisteria.

The rear garden comprises borders, paved and gravelled pathways, a side utility area and a large paved west-facing terrace, with stunning views over open countryside. A double garage at the rear of the house provides very useful storage and now accommodates the oil storage tank. Part of the garage area has been converted to a summerhouse overlooking the adjoining open land.
