With mid-eighteenth century origins Horbutt House is a charming double fronted Grade II listed family home which reveals sympathetically renovated accommodation with many original features, superb landscaped gardens and an extensive range of useful outbuildings including a cleverly converted self-contained one bedroom guest annexe.
The property which is also known as Horbatt House originally accommodated the village Methodist chapel prior to the construction of the Victorian chapel in 1871. The property has many original period features and in particular a fine 18th century staircase and the name Horbutt may well have originally derived from the nearby Aubert Ings, a local site of special scientific interest.
Since their original purchase some eighteen years ago, our clients have carried out a tasteful programme of improvements at all times keenly maintaining the integrity of the property which now features impressive slate flooring with underfloor heating to the central reception areas, oil fired heating and restored original sash windows.
A central reception hall serves a dining room and an elegant sitting room which benefits from an attractive period fireplace, whilst a full depth farmhouse style kitchen is the perfect place for relaxation and entertaining with direct access to front garden areas through an arched door. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a study, guest cloakroom and a spacious orangery which is the perfect link between house and garden. On the first floor, three true double bedrooms are served by a house bathroom.
Those purchasers with children of teenage/student age or regular visitors will appreciate the versatility that is provided by the self-contained cottage/annexe which provides a ground floor sitting room/dining kitchen, as well as a double bedroom and en-suite shower room on the first floor. This forms part of a substantial outbuilding also accommodating two large workshops, one of which provides excellent garaging space.
The quintessentially English gardens amount in total to 0.45 acres and comprise a sensible balance of lawns, ornamental borders and seating areas with an excellent provision of visitor car parking, an ornamental water feature and a sturdily constructed dog run.
Horbutt House is situated towards the very end of Chapel Street overlooking to the south open countryside with extensive rural walks to be enjoyed. The convenience for the busy commuter cannot be faulted with road access via the A59, A1/M1 link road to the major commercial centres of Yorkshire and the North East and a local railway station which serves York, Leeds and then London/Edinburgh further beyond.
Daily shopping requirements can be satisfied in the local market towns of Wetherby and Knaresborough and there is secondary education at King James School and Queen Ethelburga's.
Proceeding into the village of Cattal from the A59 at the Whixley crossroads, bear left at the heart of the village onto Chapel Street and proceed to the very end where Horbutt House will be found on the left hand side just before the Old Chapel.
