The property now known as Victoria Stables is believed to date back to the 1850's and as the name suggests, started out life as former stabling to the neighbouring property. It later became the village Youth Hostel and was later converted in the 1980's to a residential dwelling.

Within the last 8 years or so, this lovely stone built property has been greatly improved and refurbished from top to bottom to include all the features one would expect in a modern house of today. There are double glazed sash windows, oil fired central heating, a well equipped kitchen with integrated appliances and a spacious sitting room with wood burning stove. A sociable garden/family room leads off the kitchen with doors opening out onto a south facing terrace. There are three double bedrooms on the first floor, the master bedroom having a newly refurbished en suite shower room and the stylish family bathroom has been completely re-designed to include underfloor heating. Painted beams, oak flooring and oak latch doors throughout help retain the character of the house and the internal decor is modern and fresh.

From the paved, sun terrace there are great views and here is the perfect spot for outside entertaining or simply relaxing with a book on a sunny day. The garden has external lighting and is walled on the eastern elevation providing good shelter and privacy. There are well stocked shrubberies and planted borders creating all year round interest and from the terrace, a pathway leads to the bottom of the garden where there is a timber framed building suitable for a variety of uses but currently used as a home office and small gym.

In summary a splendid home, likely to appeal to a wide audience and in a sought after village location in the heart of the Howardian Hills

The village of Ampleforth lies on the southern edge of the North York Moors National Park, with good amenities including two pubs, two churches, two primary schools, a doctors’ surgery, village shop and Post Office and a well supported village hall. Nearby Ampleforth College has an indoor sports and recreation centre, including a swimming pool, which is open to public membership. Ampleforth itself is an attractive, sought-after North Yorkshire rural village with an active community, surrounded by beautiful countryside, but within easy reach of the market towns of Malton, Helmsley, Easingwold and Thirsk. The city of York is some 20 miles to the south from where London can be reached in under two hours by rail.
