Fern Leigh is a stone built, semi-detached town house in the centre of Pickering. It is thought to date back to the 1800's when it was likely to have been a more modest property that over time has been enlarged to now offer accommodation of good proportions over three floors. To its rear there is a pleasant and secluded court yard lined with a range of very useful outbuildings and beyond a large garden boasting views of Pickering Castle.
On entering Fern Leigh a central hall branches left, into a good sized sitting room, the full depth of the house, having a feature stone fireplace with grate and then to the right a separate dining room. There is a fitted kitchen overlooking the rear courtyard and a rear lobby accessing the ground floor bathroom. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, a shower room and stairs to the second floor where there are a further two loft rooms, currently used as additional bedrooms.
A low maintenance front garden offers a perfect seating area to people watch. Immediately to the rear of the house is a hardstanding courtyard. This has vehicular access off Wells Walk and not only offers private parking but also a splendid area to sit out. There are a range of 3 outbuildings, a single garage and a very useful workshop. Beyond the garage is a large rear garden down mostly to grass with some herbaceous boarders and an assortment of fruit trees. There is also a couple of timber framed sheds and a green house.
