SETTING – An Exclusive Courtyard in the Grounds of Sheriff Hutton Castle!
THREE WORDS – Peaceful Village Setting
Beaufort Cottage is nestled in an exclusive courtyard within the grounds surrounding the 14th century castle ruins in the picturesque village of Sheriff Hutton. It is a charming blend of traditional and country style.
Walk in through the subtle painted timber door into a welcoming hallway, there is a useful walk in cupboard, handy for keeping bits and bobs. To the right is the sitting room which is wonderfully light and airy with dual aspect windows and vaulted ceiling with beams. There is a fireplace with electric fire.
Head back through the hall to the breakfast kitchen, with light coloured wood effect floor and wall mounted cupboards and drawers and granite worksurface. This space has been thoughtfully designed for a busy cook with integral appliances including an electric oven, ceramic hob, extractor hood, eye level integral microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is space for a dining table and chairs.
The Master bedroom is to the left, this large versatile room could also be a second reception room. A door opens out onto the patio garden. The ensuite bathroom has a separate shower cubicle, vanity wash hand basin and wc.
The straight staircase has been designed to accommodate a chairlift should the need arise. With power provided it would be a very straightforward installation. Once upstairs you will find a generous double bedroom with lovely open views of farmland and the surrounding village. There is a third bedroom and shower room.
The landscaped courtyard to the front is well maintained with lawned gardens and established perennials, there is a gravelled area with seating.
The paving to the front is perfectly placed with super views of the castle ruins, with plenty of space for a table and chairs. Sheltered and south and west facing it catches the sun all afternoon.
Later you can take a glass of wine out onto a more private patio at the rear of the property and watch the sun go down over the village, or potter with the shrubs. We can imagine with some pretty flowering pots and a Rattan Bistroset this would be an ideal spot for alfresco dining and entertaining friends and family.
There is an additional secure storeroom and bin store. Beaufort Cottage has two parking spaces and visitor parking.
Please note that there is a covenant to ensure that at least one occupier is over the age of 60.
The vendor has informed us there is an annual service charge for the communal area. This is split evenly between the properties this is on average £350 per annum.
The property is freehold. Oil fired central heating, double glazing, electricity and mains drainage.
On entering the village from Strensall turn right onto Main Street, Castle Court is situated on the right and is accessed via a private driveway. The driveway can be identified by the For Sale Board.
Local Life in Sheriff Hutton
Situated on the edge of The Howardian Hills, Sheriff Hutton is a quintessential Yorkshire village offering idyllic living where neighbours are warm and welcoming and there is always something happening on the doorstep.
Steeped in history, the 14th Century castle built by John Neville later became home to the infamous Richard III. Today the spectacular ruins are the focal point of the village.
A hop skip and a jump away the Highwayman Inn where you will be greeted with a warm welcome, fine food, great beers and wine. Likewise, the Castleman Inn is well worth a visit.
Quarmby's deli is at the heart of the village, I can highly recommend the latte and the food is fantastic.
The village also offers a village store, post office and a wine shop! There is a highly regarded Primary School. The village hall hosts numerous clubs and activities, including preschool toddle group, badminton, bowls and other sporting activities.
Sheriff Hutton has excellent transport links, close to the A64 as well as the A19 between York and Thirsk. There is a regular bus service going to York city centre and Monks Cross. Strensall is 4 miles away where there are many amenities, Tesco Extra, Chemist, Butchers and many more. For those wanting superstores, Monks Cross is close by.
Sheriff Hutton is surrounded by beautiful countryside but close to the city, the best of both worlds. We think it is a pretty great place to live
