THREE WORDS – Make It Yours
A rare and exciting opportunity for new owners to renovate this period cottage situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Crayke . The Nook has been a loving family home since 1975 and is now in need of modernising, it also offers plenty of scope to extend (subject to planning). This brick-built cottage enjoys open views to the front and also retains period features such as exposed brick fireplaces and beamed ceilings. There are two receptions rooms to the front with chimney breasts to both, we can imagine sociable family living with cosy log burners glowing on a wintery night. The turnaround staircase leads to three generous sized bedrooms and family bathroom. Outside is a pretty stone wall and a good-sized plot that is crying out for an extension (subject to planning). To the rear there is a raised garden and with some rejigging this would make a wonderful private walled garden perfect for alfresco dining. We think this is a wonderful opportunity for those looking to make a home of your own and to enjoy having happy family times.
Early viewing highly recommended.
Entering the village, drive passed the Durham Ox and the property is situated on the left and can be identified by a For Sale Board.
