Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Hope & Braim are delighted to present The Cottage in Castleton to the market.

There are some properties that you will buy with your head, some with your heart, The Cottage is certainly one that will fall into the later category, as we are sure you will fall in love with it. It is hard to believe that The Cottage was once a coach house which has now been converted into a stunning detached home. Located in a private setting in the heart of the North York Moors National Park. The accommodation has been arranged to make the best of the plot and views, with the bedrooms being downstairs and the living space upstairs, that lead onto the sun deck and top terrace garden. Great care and expense have been used for the refurbishment from the stone mullion windows to the oak staircase, which give this property both character and a touch of luxury. The property is surprisingly spacious, aided by the high vaulted ceiling upstairs, but there is great potential to extend the property further, subject to permissions. We would suggest an Orangery-type addition to the living room which would have the most stunning views of the surrounding countryside. In total there is nearly an acre of land which comprises terraced gardens, woodland, and a small grass paddock, making it ideal for those wanting privacy and plenty of outside space. Located on the edge of a well-served village, which has a pub, shop, café, and village hall, so you can walk to get a Sunday paper and a pint. When planning was granted for the conversion to a dwelling by the NYMNP there was a local occupancy restriction applied.

The occupation of the dwelling hereby permitted shall be limited to:
i) a qualifying person; and
ii) a wife or husband (or person living as such), licensee, dependant or sub-tenant
of a qualifying person.
For the purpose of the above, a person is a qualifying person in relation to the dwelling
if he/she has an interest in the dwelling (see Note A) and, immediately prior to
occupying the dwelling, he/she satisfied the Local Planning Authority that he/she was
in need of local needs housing in terms of the criteria set out in Core Policy J of the
adopted North York Moors Local Development Framework, namely that he/she:
a) is currently living in and has permanently resided in the National Park for five
years or more and is living in accommodation that no longer meets their requirements
b) does not currently live in the National Park but has a strong and long standing
link to the local community including a previous period of residence of five years or
more or
c) has an essential need to move to live close to relatives who are currently living
in and have resided in the National Park for at least the previous five years or more
and require support for reasons of age or infirmity or Town and Country Planning Act 1990
Continuation of Decision No. NYM/2018/0530/FL
d) requires support for reasons of age or infirmity and need to move to live close
to relatives who are currently living and have resided in the National Park for at least
the previous five years or more or
e) needs to live in the National Park as a result of current sole employment within
that parish or adjacent parishes within the National Park.
Prior to the occupation of the development the qualifying person shall have obtained
confirmation in writing from the Authority that they satisfy the local need criteria
outlined in points a - e above.
Note A: For the purposes of the above, a person has an interest in the dwelling if
he/she has a freehold or leasehold interest in the whole or any part of it, or is a secure
tenant or statutory tenant within the meaning of the Housing Act 1985 or the Rent Act
