Sympathetically converted some 20 years ago, The Barn comprises a detached, stone and pantile property nicely tucked away off the Back Lane in Cropton, in a leafy area with a south facing garden and small paddock. An occasionally used Green Lane runs alongside the property.

The interior has a lovely open plan feel throughout and has many features indicative of a property of this nature. Coupled with oil fired central heating there is a wood burning stove in the sitting room that comes into its own during the winter months. Just recently the owners have renewed the kitchen to include integrated appliances and they have added a conservatory providing a lovely place to sit and enjoy the outlook across the garden. Both first floor double bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and the open, gallery style landing lets the light flood in.

A gated drive from the Back Lane leads to plenty of gravelled parking space. For ease of maintenance the garden is nice and level and mainly down to lawn with a flagged patio area. Adjacent to the garden is a small paddock with hedge and fence boundaries, perhaps not enough to graze livestock but plenty big enough to create an orchard or keep chickens etc. Within the paddock are two outdoor kennels.

Services: Mains electricity and water are connected. Drainage to septic tank. Oil fired central heating.

Council Tax: We are informed by Ryedale District Council that this property falls in band E.

Tenure: We are advised by the Vendor that the property is freehold and that vacant possession will be given upon completion. There is no onward chain.

Viewing Arrangements: Strictly by prior appointment through the agents Messrs Rounthwaite and Woodhead, 26, Market Place. Kirkbymoorside. Telephone: 01751 430034/472800

Cropton is situated on the southern fringe of the North York Moors National Park and is a community of farms, smallholdings and traditional houses and cottages only 5 minutes drive from the main A170 Thirsk to Scarborough road. This in turn gives quick and easy access to the market towns of Pickering and Kirkbymoorside to which Cropton is dependant for most of its every day amenities, although it does have its own thriving village pub. The village is situated in the heart of great walking country and is surrounded by forestry and moorland. Its nearest train station is in Malton some 15 miles away where a direct service to York gives access to the Intercity London to Edinburgh service.
