Lawrence House is a grade II listed family house built of Flemish bond with ashlar quoins under a slate roof. The property dates back to the late 17th century and was altered and enlarged in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Lawrence House was formerly the Dower House to Studley Royal and was also used as a rectory. The most attractive front facade is unquestionably an excellent example of the era.

Internally, the original features of the property have been well maintained and improved including generous sash windows, high ceilings, deep skirting boards and ornate cornicing and plasterwork. The main reception rooms including the sitting room, dining room and drawing room all have generous proportions and are formal rooms for entertaining. The kitchen/breakfast room lies to the rear of the house and could be further improved and enlarged by incorporating the rooms to the rear, subject to planning permission and listed building consent. From the kitchen, a door leads to the beautifully kept formal gardens whichare visible through all of the kitchen windows.

A fine staircase leads to the first floor where a master bedroom suite benefits from a separate dressing room and bathroom. There are 4 further double bedrooms on the first floor as well as 3 bathrooms.

The house is an excellent example of a generous family house in a unique setting at the edge of the village and has the additional benefit of being within a stone's throw of Studley Royal. Lawrence House is attached to Downing House in the north eastern corner. There is a high degree of privacy between the two properties.

The property has Fibre Broadband in place.

Lawrence House is situated on the edge of the popular and historic conservation village of Studley Roger. The village lies adjacent to the world heritage site of Studley Royal and Fountains Abbey. The park is owned by the National Trust and open to the public and includes some of the most stunning walks in the area. The village is sought after as a result of its unspoilt nature and the high number of older houses which front onto the main street. The village is found approximately 2 miles west of Ripon which provides a good range of shops, services and facilities. The A1 is approximately 6 miles distant and offers easy access to the commercial centres of the north and south. The mainline railway station at Thirsk has a direct service to London Kings Cross in approximately 2 hours 20 minutes. Regular domestic and international flights are available from Leeds Bradford Airport.

The area is particularly well served by a wide range of schooling for children of all ages with a wide choice of private schools as well as the renowned Ripon Grammar School.

Lawrence House is approached off the village lane through private gates to a parking area adjacent to the kitchen door. The formal gardens lie to the South and West of the house and incorporate beautifully tended lawns surrounded by heavily stocked flower beds and herbaceous borders which are a credit to the current owners. The formal gardens are interspersed with some maturing and other mature tree specimens. A gateway leads through a brick garden wall to the walled garden to the rear. This part of the garden is mainly laid to lawn and at the head is a garden room which provides a superb area for outside entertaining.

To the rear of the house is a courtyard of outbuildings including dog kennel, boiler room and store rooms.
