"Brookside" as it is known, comprises a detached, stone built cottage style property offering predominantly single storey accommodation, the exception being a first floor twin bedroom and an attic room ideal for storing things that need to be readily got at! With uPVC double glazing throughout, the principal reception rooms comprise a "lofty" sitting room/diner (great for entertaining) overlooking the rear garden plus a smaller, cosy sitting room off the kitchen with an open fire. The kitchen is of a good size and has an oil fired Stanley stove which provides central heating and domestic hot water. The two ground floor double bedrooms are served by a bathroom with shower and a bath and the hallway doubles up as a small office. In the passage of time kitchen and bathroom fittings have become dated, as has the decor, which will no doubt be appealing to the DIY enthusiast and of course to those looking to put their own mark on a property.

The garden is a great attraction with vehicular access from both the main street and off the Back Lane so for anyone wanting to park additional vehicles, trailers or a motorhome perhaps then there is plenty of room to do so. It is fair to say the garden has become overgrown but feral children will be in their element here and so too the keen horticulturalists! The garden is barely overlooked and there are clearly defined boundaries; a haven for garden wildlife and facing south east benefitting from virtually all day sunshine.

In addition to gravelled hardstanding there is a detached garage with light and power connected, a stone built potting shed, greenhouse and timber framed summer house (requiring a bit of repair!) Adjoining the cottage is the "coal hole" leading to an old dairy.

Allerston is a pretty village, located just off the A170 Thirsk to Scarborough road, some twelve miles inland from the coast and approximately six miles east of the market town of Pickering. Situated at the foot of the North York Moors National Park and the edge of Dalby Forest, Allerston is within a short drive of the A64 which gives quick and easy access to Malton where there are both road and rail links to the City of York. The nearby village of Thornton-le-Dale, right on the southern fringe of Dalby Forest, has local shops that provide every day amenities including a doctors surgery, chemist, post office, newsagents, bakery and general store.
