Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Longrigg is a beautiful detached family home, believed to date back in to the 1600's in places. It has character & charm in abundance with beamed ceilings, open fires, Aga and stone shelved pantry. It is situated in the village of Thornton Rust, only 2 miles from Aysgarth and 3 miles from both Askrigg & Bainbridge with shops, primary school, pubs etc. There is a daily bus service through the village up to Hawes or down to Leyburn and beyond, as well as SuperFast Broadband available, helping to create a quiet yet convenient place to live. There are glorious walks from the door, with panoramic views of the Dales.

The house itself offers spacious family accommodation with the scope to further integrate the attached barn to provide further bedrooms or independent B&B rooms for a lifestyle business.

On the ground floor, is an entrance hall, dining room with open fire, conservatory, sitting room with traditional range and open fire and a farmhouse kitchen with oil fired Aga, pantry, utility/boot room and downstairs WC.

Upstairs there are two good double bedrooms and a further single bedroom, with house bathroom. There is a sliding door from the single bedroom through to the barn which has a bunk house style bedroom at present but could be used to provide two large double en-suite bedrooms if required.

The attached barn is accessed from the kitchen, through to a music room/study and on into a large open plan garage, workshop and fuel store with mezzanine storage above. There are double doors out to the front of the house and a door out to the garden at the back.

The parking is either in the garage or in the space to the front. The gardens are mature and well landscaped with trees, shrubs and flower borders as well as lawn.

Longrigg has the benefit of both oil central heating and recent double glazing to the rear, but retains all the character and features one would hope for in a traditional Dales farmhouse.

Internally the property is in need of some modernisation, this is reflected in the sale price.
