Grouse Cottage, an attractive double fronted stone cottage offering well appointed three bedroom accommodation with rooms that are generous in proportion with a stylish and contemporary look that works well alongside some of the more traditional features. A major refurbishment program took place approx. 6 years ago and at that time a brand new gas central heating system was installed, both the front and rear elevations were re-pointed with lime mortar, windows were renewed on the southern elevation with double glazed Yorkshire sliding sash and the kitchen and bathroom were fitted out to a very high standard. The sitting room has a simple stone fireplace with wood burning stove and a door opening out to a courtyard style patio from where steps lead to the garden. The three good size bedrooms on the first floor have surprisingly tall ceilings making them feel spacious and light and the stylish shower room has a large walk-in shower plus 'his & her' wash basins. The interior decoration is simple with a neutral pallet of muted, earthy tones throughout to compliment the oak flooring, stone flags and classically plain carpeting.
Since they arrived, the current owners have developed the garden into a wonderful place to sit and while away the hours (when they're not gardening!) and although raised up, it has a long length of level lawn with a sheltered patio at the top, productive fruit trees, planted beds, a garden shed plus a log store and stone outbuilding. In addition, a timber framed garage provides room for a small car with hardstanding in front for at least 2 vehicles. Suffice to say Grouse Cottage is everything you would expect from that ‘ready to move into’ home .... either as a permanent place to live or as a comfortable weekend retreat in one of Ryedale's prettiest villages.
