Take a look inside this truly unique and fabulous Grade II listed Georgian Manor house set in an idyllic location in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Boasting its own private frontage on the banks of the River Swale and a waterfall running through the gardens, this magnificent property is made for those special get-togethers and memorable family celebrations. Come and stay in one of Yorkshire's most luxury holiday homes.
This property was transformed from a beautiful period building into a stylish and elegant home. Pale tones and contemporary styling brings the building to life and creates a gorgeous blend of comfort and grandeur.
Approached via a secluded lane along the river, your first glimpse of the handsome Georgian exterior is a real joy. Beautiful sash windows and an arched doorway invite you into a large and impressive entrance hall. Yorkshire flagstones underfoot lead you towards the grand staircase and that's when you realise, this is a very special house indeed.
Most of the ground floor is taken up by the open-plan reception rooms encompassing the living room and formal dining space. The living room is a statement in modern style, dominated by a huge original fireplace complete with a roaring open fire. Chic contemporary furniture gives the room a bright and welcoming feel, and three large sash windows offer a bird's eye view of the gardens and river beyond. Original window shutters give a sense of period glamour. For those family movie nights, a TV with Freesat and DVD player is provided. There's a sound system covering most of the house which can also be used for Bluetooth music streaming. And to keep the kids happy, a PlayStation and traditional board games are available too.
Wander through to the stunning formal dining room, a lesson in understated elegance with its blend of modern and traditional styles. Antique furniture contracts with contemporary here and another original fireplace provides the perfect backdrop to a special candlelit dinner. This is the sort of dining room you'll want to dress up for.
Make your way down to the lower ground level to discover a charming country kitchen complete with an informal dining area; just the place for a late night catch-up over a bottle of red. Underfloor heating keeps this room nice and toasty and another stone fireplace adds traditional character. All the expected mod cons are provided within the bespoke kitchen including a dishwasher, range cooker with induction hob, combi microwave oven and grill, coffee maker and fridge/freezer. An antique cupboard offers plenty of storage and original stone window seats offer a place to rest while rustling up a family roast. A further TV and DVD player are provided in this cosy kitchen.
The lower ground level also has a handy cloak room, laundry room with washer/dryer and boot room. If you have the family dog with you this area has direct access from the back door, so it's the perfect place to dry them off after a walk in the hills.
Back up to the ground floor to discover the first of four bedrooms, the Library room. This charming room features a king-size bed, exposed floor boards, soft peaceful colours and quirky touches. Bookcases line the walls of the snug area in this room offering a host of reading material and a comfy armchair from which to enjoy them.
The remaining three bedrooms are set on the first floor at the top of the beautiful wooden staircase. The breathtaking master bedroom offers uninterrupted views of the river and Yorkshire Dales from two large windows. The super king-size bed boasts an original fireplace and an en-suite with a large bath with marble surround and showerhead attached to the taps.
The third bedroom sits at the front of the house, another lovely room with a contemporary king-size canopy bed commissioned by the owners and made by an artisan blacksmith. This room interconnects via a lockable door with the fourth and final bedroom, a charming twin room which can also be set up as a king-size double room if preferred. A bespoke wooden headboard designed and made by local craftsman using reclaimed floorboards from an old Lancashire cotton mill give this room real character and substance. This room can also be accessed from the landing. If you don't request a preference, it will be set as a twin.
The family bathroom sits next door, a spacious and grand room with traditional his and her sinks, a large bath tub and a separate walk-in power shower. Open the window, run yourself a long hot bath, sink in and enjoy the river views.
In addition to the gorgeous interiors, this property offers much within its extensive grounds to enjoy. Step out of the back door onto the terrace, with views across the large lawned garden and down to your private river frontage. There's an additional paved terrace set right by the river complete with comfy seating so you can chill with the sound of running water below, sheer heaven on a warm summer's day. A firepit/BBQ allows you to extend your time outdoors well into the evening. Snuggle up under a blanket and watch the sun set over the hills with the sights and sounds of Yorkshire wildlife all around.
To the front of the house is a large cobbled area providing off road parking for the whole family.
