Pretty Cottage Garden
Dating back to 1858, this former primitive methodist chapel is a far cry from its original being and anyone wishing to use it today as a place of worship, or indeed, a premises from which to sell alcohol will be in breach of its only restrictive Covenants.
Occupying a lovely location in the heart of the village, overlooking an ancient oak tree on the village green, this delightful property is full of character and has that quintessential 'english country cottage' feel from the second you walk through the door. The cottage is heated via a modern air source system and in the sitting room there is a double sided wood burning stove from nearby Hovingham Fireplaces set in a feature fireplace with stone hearth and wrought ironwork. The current owner has made much better use of a former north facing courtyard by opening up the rather petite kitchen at the rear and adding to it a 'conservatory style' extension. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, together with newly refurbished shower room with stylish fixtures and fittings. Exposed floor boards run throughout most rooms in the cottage and the stairs and landing have been newly carpeted.
The south facing garden to the front has a glorious outlook across the Green and is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the occasional cow mooing, the neighbouring cockerel crowing and an abundance of resident songbirds twittering in the nearby trees. There is good outside storage to both the front and rear of the cottage with 'living' sedum roofs ....another interesting feature.

The name Salton means 'willow town'; Sal is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word Salh, meaning Willow. Through Salton runs the little River Dove where at one time, apparently, the banks were lined with Willows. The village benefits from a village hall and St. John of Beverley church, described as a near perfect example of Norman architecture. The closest town providing every day shopping facilities is Kirkbymoorside some 7 miles to the north and the bustling market town of Malton is of a similar distance where there are both road and rail links to the City of York.
Price Guide: £235,000 to include fitted carpets.
