The light and spacious garden room enjoys wonderful views and direct access to the impressive walled gardens. To the first floor is a master bedroom suite, guest bedroom suite, two further bedrooms and family bathroom. Within the grounds is a pair of charming, restored one and two bedroom semi-detached cottages, offering fully self-contained accommodation, ideal as a relative annex or alternatively could be used for letting purposes. The south facing, walled gardens and grounds are a particular feature of Gardener's Cottage and comprise a beautifully restored glass house, a peach house extending to approximately 80ft and a mushroom house. The gardens and grounds are mainly laid to lawn, linked via a network of illuminated footpaths and an extensive variety of fruit trees namely apple, pear, plum and greengage, fruit cages, established flower beds, orchard, vegetable garden with raised beds all encompassed within an historic, Grade II listed wall.Town PlanningThe rectangular walled garden is Grade II listed (listing entry number 1203760 https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1203760) as shown hatched blue on the Ordnance Survey extract. Gardener's Cottage itself and the landscaped area to the north of the walled garden, including the boundary wall, is understood to fall outside of the Listing. Listed Building Consent (LBC) was obtained in 2008 (reference 07/05961/LB) for the retention / conversion of an outbuilding (Bothy) to form 1 dwelling and 1 holiday let together with the retention of the Peach House and rebuilding of part of the boundary wall. These works have been completed.Also in 2008, LBC was obtained (reference 08/01076/LB) for the rebuilding of a glasshouse and reinstatement of an additional Bothy. Various works have commenced but are incomplete, with the structure not having been built in accordance with the approved consent. Based on recent discussions, Harrogate Borough Council is minded to serve an Enforcement Notice requiring the structure to be demolished. The Council has indicated it would not be supportive of a retrospective planning application being submitted to regularise the ?as built' structure although interested parties may wish to seek specialist advice in this respect. We recommend that interested parties direct any planning related enquiries to the local authority, Harrogate Borough Council (01423 500600) who will direct you to the relevant Planning Officer.
