A quite extraordinary property nestling in the Ellerburn Valley in the heart of the North York Moors National Park and literally on the doorstep of the magnificent Dalby Forest. Converted from an old stone barn in 2002, Low Paper Mill Barn has every feature imaginable indicative of a property of this nature; vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, oak doors with hand made latches, rustic yet practical flooring, and a lovely farmhouse style kitchen with a huge picture window overlooking the neighbouring trout lake and the surrounding countryside. The whole house has lots of interesting nooks and crannies and the current owners have made the very best use of the space. In 2017 they upgraded the heating in the property by installing a modern air source system and the wood burning stove in the sitting room provides a cosy environment in the depths of winter.
A bridleway (no through road) is the only access to the property, traffic is minimal ...farm vehicles and the odd car may pass by but in the main walkers and cyclists are the principal users of this route. The garden is well screened and affords a good degree of privacy and some clever planting has not only encouraged wildlife to visit it has also created many interesting places to sit and simply enjoy the peace. 'His' and 'Her' spaces include a nicely furnished outdoor garden room plus a substantial stone built workshop with wood burning stove and electricity connected.
The tiny hamlet of Ellerburn lies to the north of Thornton-le-Dale, formerly an area of industry, paper mills and quarries with the Grade II Listed Church of St. Hilda taking centre stage. There are excellent every day facilities available in Thornton-le-Dale which, if one chooses, can be reached on foot in about 20 minutes either by road or better still, by following the beck through the fields capturing the very best of the local scenery.
