Ivy House is a prominently positioned double fronted stone town house in the centre of Pickering believed to date back to the 1820's. It stands with a Southerly aspect along the main road that runs through the town and has a sizeable garden along with ample parking to its rear. It boasts a wealth of features and has the room number and proportions one would expect from such a Georgian property. Its tiled entrance gives access to two front reception rooms and continues through to an inner hall with a  splendid turned staircase flanked by a long arched window over looking the  garden. There is a good sized dining kitchen with separate utility room to the rear of the house. On the first floor, the landing is large enough for seating and offers access to 4 good double bedrooms, two of which have en suite facilities and a bathroom that serves the other two. A further set of stairs leads to the second floor where there is a separate Double Bedroom suite with its own bathroom and study area. There is plenty of storage space throughout the house that includes a cellar.

Outside the property has a drive that gives access to a secure rear garden with flagged patio area, lawn, mature trees and a well. At the end of the drive, Ivy House has parking for at least four cars.

The current owners have successfully used the property as a holiday letting cottage, offering accommodation for 10+ guests. However, with its road side frontage, Ivy House could utilise some of its many en suite bedrooms to draw an additional  income from Bed and Breakfast whilst still having an attractive family home.
