The Property 
Set against a backdrop of glorious panoramic countryside views, East High House Farm is a beautiful stone-built barn conversion situated in the quaint village of Hunstanworth. This charming property has been thoughtfully updated with a variety of character features, creating a rustic farmhouse aesthetic. In addition to the main house, the property includes several outbuildings and a three-acre paddock, adding considerable scope to the property.  

Inside, the interior is warm and inviting; exposed beams and wooden lintels blend with a traditional-style uneven plaster applied over fully insulated breezeblock walls. A large inglenook fireplace serves as the focal point of the living room, housing a cozy wood-burner. Flagstone floors extend underfoot in the brand-new, country-style modern shaker kitchen, which flows into the adjoining dining room. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with integrated appliances, a Belfast sink, and an electric AGA set within a second imposing inglenook. For added practicality, a storeroom adjoins the eastern side wing of the house, along with a workshop, providing ample space for storage and possible scope for development - subject to necessary planning consents. 

Upstairs, three wonderfully spacious and brightly lit bedrooms feature, each with their own ensuite and each featuring impressive open ceilings showcasing a wooden beam apex.  A second storeroom appears on the first floor, accessible via the ground floor adjoining storeroom.  

East High House Farm boasts well-established gardens that capitalise on the breathtaking views of the nearby Derwent Valley and Reservoir. These low-maintenance gardens are a haven for various wildlife, including unique bird species that frequent the area. A large gravelled private yard at the front of the property offers ample parking space. The property also includes a substantial 3 acre paddock, providing plenty of space for various activities or development. Additionally, several outbuildings are featured, including a sizeable barn and a field shelter.
