In a desirable area, the flexible living accommodation will satisfy a large spectrum of clients. There is also planing permission granted to create further accommodation to the first floor and plans drawn for an Orangery in the private and secure gardens. For those that wish to reside in this delightful village, Luke Miller & Associates encourage those in a position to proceed to contact the office to discuss viewing arrangements.

Sowerby General - The village of Sowerby links with Thirsk, but retains its own identity and is set in the heart of 'Herriot country', gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park to the east. Thirsk is also the Darrowby of the late 'James Herriot' (Alf Wight), famous vet and author. On Front Street, which is the main road through the village, an avenue lined with trees, are an old timbered house and the historical village church, and over Cod Beck at the southern end is an old pack horse bridge. Local facilities include the reputable Fantino's restaurant, a public house and a nursing home. There are three schools in Sowerby -Thirsk School on Topcliffe Road, and also a primary school and church of England primary school located on Green Lane East. The village is within easy access of the A19/A168 for commuting both north to Teesside and south to York.

Reception - Entry to the reception hall is welcomed by a double sided log burner with the sitting room, there is access to the dining kitchen, sitting room, cloak room, door to the rear gravel court yard and also a staircase to the first floor accommodation.

Kitchen - A bespoke hand made kitchen by the very reputable Grove House takes centre stage for the hub of the home. With a clever design offering excellent storage, the centre island allows functionality, for every day use, and also enables the two rooms to feel as one. With a host of fitted appliances and granite work surfaces, there are also views up the tree lined Front Street through double glazed windows.

Dining Room - Open plan with the kitchen, the dining room has double glazed windows to two elevations, and a wood burning stove as a focal point.

Sitting Room - From the entrance hall, this room benefits from the double sided log burner, shared with the reception hall, and serves as a focal point. There is also a double glazed window to the front elevation and, to the far end of this room, is open access to the lounge area.

Lounge - For the purchaser, this room may be ideal as a further lounge, reading room, craft room or office. There are double doors which also open to the south facing gardens which allow ample natural light in and also allow the gardens to become an extension to the home.

Utility & Cloak Room - Accessed form the reception hall, there is a w.c, wash hand basin sink and plumbing for a washing machine.

First Floor Accommodation - The landing to the home leads to two/three bedrooms and bathroom. There is also a double glazed window to the rear elevation and a stair case to the second floor.

Master Bedoom - This large bedroom still retains an accent of the original home with exposed beam. There is also a double glazed window to the front elevation.

Bedroom Three / Study - The current vendors utilise this first room as a child's room but may also be an ideal study. There is a double glazed window to the front elevation and a door to bedroom two.

Bedroom Two - This large double bedroom has a double glazed window to the front elevation and also has excellent storage available through a secondary room. The vendors have been granted planning permission for the creation of a dormer window allowing this space to become an en suite or large walk in dressing room.

Bathroom - Contemporary design that comprises bath, separate shower cubicle, large sink set in sleek vanity with storage below, w.c, heated towel ladder, tiled surround and a double glazed window to the rear elevation.

Second Floor Bedroom - This excellent space allows for a double bed set amongst the exposed beams, full range of fitted wardrobes with storage and a roof light to the front elevation. There is open floor space which maybe ideal for a dressing/seating area for the occupant of this room.

External - The gardens offer excellent space for the enjoyment of young families though, with slight redesign, can offer a lower level of maintenance if preferred. Currently the garden has a large lawn area, established herbaceous and flowering bedsa and a fenced section for a child's play area. The presentation of the gardens are enjoyed by the elevated seating area. With a high brick wall surround encapsulating the gardens and views towards Sutton Bank to the rear, this private garden also boasts a further area for parking with outbuildings which is separate as to not spoil the overall presentation of grounds.

Parking And Outbuildings - Having the rare opportunity to park off road in this area, Milestone House has overcome this by having a large gravel parking area which is accessed via a remote control cantilever gate allowing the residents to drive into the grounds. This is a quite a commodity for Front Street as parking is limited. There are also two outbuildings that may offer a solution for those that require additional storage or workshop/hobby room. They do have power and light available.
