Property description

*** A property not to be missed! *** A country style house with adjoining paddock *** field views***
Introducing 'Heath Cottage', a fantastic size 5/6 bedroom detached property appealing to those seeking small equestrian properties, small holdings, or simply the quiet country lifestyle! The property sits on generous grounds in excess of 1.25 acres (stls) split into a large formal garden with hot tub, paddock with converted shipping container stabling, and yard area. The land is accessible via two entrances, one of which leads onto the neighbouring Whitby Road. The house is a typical Farmhouse style with some beamwork, large inglenook fireplace with log burner, aga cooker, and exceptional size rooms throughout. The ground floor offers several reception rooms, including a study, and a large country kitchen with central island and attached diner. Upstairs are five double bedrooms, two with re-fitted shower en-suites, and a high standard modern fitted four piece family bathroom. The traditional home has undergone sympathetic modernisation in the recent 12 months, giving it a modern aesthetic to key areas and the external presentation. Viewing of this superb versatile property is highly recommended.
