STYLE – Period Property with Detached Studio/Guest Cottage
SETTING – Desirable Village Location
THREE WORDS – Character. Village. Style
Herriot Cottage enjoys an idyllic location overlooking the green on the edge of a desirable village of Stillington. This quintessential North Yorkshire property is a blend of charm and characterful style.
This delightful home is bursting with period features, exposed ceiling beams and oak doors. The living accommodation is versatile providing warm cosy spaces for the whole family. We especially love the connection in the sitting room through the French doors to the cottage garden, bringing the outside in. There are three lovely double bedrooms, the master has an ensuite and generous family bathroom.
Outside is a private cottage garden with lawned garden and patio along with a greenhouse for those keen gardeners. There is a separate brick-built studio with exposed beams, which makes a fantastic home office or guest cottage. To the front is a double garage and workshop with driveway for numerous cars.
We think it’s perfect for buyers looking for a country lifestyle with convenience on the doorstep!
Open the timber front door, the minute you step through you feel right at home, it is a very special warm place. Straight ahead is the breakfast kitchen, soft cream coloured floor and wall mounted cupboards and drawers complimented by granite worksurface, along with a delightful, glazed cabinet and shelving to display your favourite china. The Rangemaster is ideal for the chief cook to rustle up a scrumptious supper for friends. And with space for a farmhouse table, it is wonderfully sociable, you can chat whilst cooking over a glass of Pinot! There is plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and American Style fridge. The windows overlook the cottage garden and there is a useful stable door.
Continue through the hallway to the left the dining room is filled with character, exposed beams, original built-in cupboard, and fireplace. This is a versatile room, super for entertaining dinner guests, playroom, or home office. The sitting room is to the right, the French doors are perfectly placed toward the garden bringing the outside in. The focal point is the woodburning stove, we can imagine enjoying cosy nights in with the family watching a movie. There is a further sitting room/snug with a relaxed vibe. The exposed brick Inglenook fireplace has a bowed timber beam over and quarry tiled hearth with a cream coloured multi fuelled stove, the perfect place for curling up on the sofa with the latest bestselling novel.
The bespoke solid oak staircase leads to the first-floor landing which is wonderfully light from the window overlooking the rear garden. The Master bedroom has original built in cupboards and exposed beams. The ensuite is ideal for the morning rush with shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and wc. The second/guest bedroom has a super dressing area with fitted wardrobes continuing through to a wonderfully light generous bedroom. This room has a tranquil feel, windows to two sides with lovely views, exposed brick wall and beamed ceiling. There is plenty of room for a King size along with additional bedroom furniture. The third double overlooks the green and has fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom is ideal for enjoying a leisurely bath, with shower over, pedestal wash hand basin and wc.
This versatile detached studio with cloakroom makes for a useful home office/guest cottage. There are exposed beams, tiled flooring, power and water. A super selling point!
