Kew Cottage is a detached house situated in a truly idyllic location in the heart of the gorgeous Howardian Hills, between the villages of Hovingham and Terrington. Within this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to Castle Howard, Kew Cottage is a particularly select opportunity as it is approached via a long and private, tree-lined drive with breathtaking views of the Hills and which even passes a particularly picturesque lake.

Kew Cottage was built in the early 20th century as part of the Wiganthorpe Estate, which was owned at the time by the Fitzwilliam family and is constructed of stone under pantile roof with more recent double glazing. It is a spacious 3/4 bedroom house with 3 reception rooms, all of which look out on the beautiful landscaped gardens within which the property is situated. To the front of the house there is a large expanse of grass and shrubbery, beyond which there is a large, well maintained 3 car timber garage with additional car port.  To the rear there are terraced lawned gardens with mature trees and shrubs making it particularly private and the living room also looks over the Kew Cottage private gardens to absolutely splendid views of the Howardian Hills beyond. Wildlife is both rich and abundant: badgers, foxes, deer and owls are all common sights on the private drive and general area and woodpeckers are frequent visitors to the Kew Cottage bird feeder.

There are a wide range of local amenities: within just two miles of Kew Cottage there are two village shops and a café, two primary schools and a nursery, a highly rated preparatory school and a doctor’s surgery. The market towns of Helmsley, Malton and Easingwold are conveniently close and the nearby A64 provides quick access to York, Leeds and beyond.
