3 bedroom detached house for saleAmpleforth, York, North Yorkshire, YO62
Beckside Cottage is a late Victorian brick built house of considerable character, originally 3 cottages built to serve some of the many railway workers who serviced the line between Thirsk and Malton. Opened in 1853, the line operated for just under 100 years but Ampleforth Station was never busy and passenger numbers declined significantly in the 1920's when a bus service to York was introduced. Sold into private ownership soon after the nearby station closed in 1950, the house enjoys complete privacy, thanks in part to the woodland which has grown up along the former line.
The house itself now requires a degree of modernisation but offers excellent potential to create a large family home subject to the necessary planning consents. Currently providing well balanced accommodation, including 3 bedrooms, a good sized kitchen/dining room and generous living room, all with large picture windows proving contrasting views of the gardens and picturesque rural views beyond.
Approached via a long driveway (the former railway line) with high tree covered banks on either side, the house stands in an open glade with a double garage to one side and large parking and turning area in front, surrounded by lawned gardens and a large sun terrace to the south. The lawns extend to the west to an ornamental pond framed by mature trees. The grounds extend some distance to the west, a pathway leading through a dense screen of trees and shrubs which eventually open to reveal a stunning stretch of countryside.
Whilst the property enjoys a particularly peaceful rural setting in a picturesque valley, the village of Ampleforth is just over a mile to the north and provides numerous local facilities, including a shop with post office, two public houses, coffee shop, sports centre and doctors surgery, as well as the eponymous college.
