Situated in one of the premium villages, just outside Whitby, with a southerly aspect to the rear overlooking the lower Esk Valley to the moors beyond, The New House is well placed for access to town (there is even a regular bus service) as well as to the moors and coastline of the National Park.

The house is a modern stone-built property constructed in around 1980 for the current owners, to their own specification, by a well-regarded local firm of builders. The masons carved a number of faces into the stonework both by the front door and by the back door from the garage, historically believed to keep bad luck away.

The property faces to the rear, its southerly aspect, with a long sloping roof at the front which conceals its scale, but incorporates a good-sized garage which is currently used as a workshop and store, the original door having been replaced by a part glazed wooden screen.

The recessed entrance door opens into a central hallway from where there are doors to the lounge, dining kitchen, shower room and to a third double bedroom which doubled as a study. This was deliberately planned so that the house could be used as a bungalow, if the circumstances required it, but with 2 further double bedrooms and a house bathroom on the first floor until such time as ground floor rooms were necessary.

The main lounge has a gas fuelled cast iron stove that looks like a log burner, but is much less faff, set in a stone fireplace. Sliding patio doors open to the rear garden and furth glazed doors open to the hallway and kitchen diner.

The dining kitchen has a well-appointed range of fitted cabinets set under laminated worktops with integral equipment including a microwave and dishwasher as well as an oven, hob, fridge and sink. The room has plenty of space for a table and chairs, with views onto the rear garden overlooking the pond.

The ground floor bedroom is a small double with a built in range of furniture as the room doubled as a home office / study. This includes cabinets, drawers and a desk unit plus shelving.

Across the hallway there is a ground floor shower room with a modern white suite comprising a quadrant shower cubicle, WC and corner wash hand basin. The shower room is fully tiled and has a small window to the front as well as an interconnecting door through to the integral garage workshop meaning the cloakroom can be accessed from the garden without entering the house.

Off the hallway there is an open doorway to a laundry recess which houses the automatic washing machine and has a shelf for a second appliance above. There is also a useful shelved storage cupboard.

1st Floor
The stairs, with storage cupboard beneath, rise from the entrance hallway to a galleried landing with a window to the west, a hatch to an eaves storage space, a large airing cupboard and doors to the house bathroom and main bedrooms.

Bedroom 1 is a double room with a built-in wardrobe and cupboards, having a dual aspect to the south and west. Bedroom 2 is also a double room with a window to the south and built-in wardrobe.

The house bathroom has a modern White suite with a panel bath, basin and WC. There is underfloor heating and a window to the side plus a second door into the airing cupboard.

To the front of the property is a concrete driveway providing off street parking and leading down to the original garage door. There is also a pretty garden at the front with a lawn and borders bounded by a stone wall.

A path leads down the side of the house to a gate into the rear garden which has a pond and a substantial wooden garden room (15'3 x 7'4 internal) in the style of a log cabin with insulation, light and power. The well-stocked back garden has a concreted patio are with sliding doors from the lounge and a small yard to the rear of the garage where there is another door. Something of a sun-trap, the gardens are planted with shrubs and flowers and include a small pond and a rockery.
