36 Potter Hill is a Grade II listed, detached stone house in the centre of the town. It stands handsomely with its double fronted southerly aspect and behind its private drive gates is a sizeable mature garden with enviable views over towards Pickering Castle. Outside there is also ample parking for a number of vehicles and a range of useful outbuildings. The property itself has undergone a significant program of modernisation and refurbishment over recent years, having had a new roof, central heating boiler, kitchen, bathrooms and some room configuration. The property offers three ground floor reception rooms along with a dining kitchen, study and long pantry/utility. There is a small cellar accessed from the reception hall and to the first floor a further 4 bedrooms, a new bathroom and a landing large enough for a seating area. To the second floor there is a further two double bedrooms with a landing lined with a storage cupboard.

Outside beyond the tarmac parking is a brick based, timber framed garden room or green house. This adjoins a brick and pantile range of buildings that are currently used as a fuel store (12'x5'5") and a garage workshop (25'11" x 12'4"). Up  few steps there is a long garden, down mostly to lawn with weaving footpaths and mature trees and shrubs. There are countless seating areas with spectacular easterly roof top views  over the North York Moors steam train and towards the Castle.
