Standing nicely back from the main street, with the village stream trickling by, lies Harewood House ....a fine period property facing due south with a large, rambling country garden. Built traditionally of stone under a pantile roof, the property provides over 2,000 sq.ft. of accommodation arranged over two floors and has been lovingly nurtured by the current owners for the last 28 years. There are no vast, cavernous rooms here nor trendy interior design schemes ...just a nice and simple, traditional yet practical layout where, from virtually every window, you get a fine view across the garden.

The two comfortable reception rooms have a wood burning stove in each. The kitchen/diner with it's lantern roof and extensive glazing was a new addition in 2011 and as well as these principal rooms there are invaluable smaller spaces too, including a pantry, a separate utility room, ground floor cloakroom and a useful study area in the main hall. Off the long landing there are four double bedrooms (one en suite) plus a good size shower room. Heating is via an oil fired boiler, the majority of the windows are double glazed and the roofs have been renewed.

For lovers of the outdoors, seeing is believing in this garden for it ticks every box for those with horticultural interests or the smallholder wanting to keep poultry, grow veg/fruit etc. There is a productive orchard and vegetable garden with numerous raised beds. The entire garden is a joy to walk around and is bursting with interesting plants, shrubs, established specimen trees and all year round interest. There is good garaging and parking, substantial workshops, and an outside store room.

In 2015 a dilapidated stone outbuilding, originally used to house livestock, was completely renovated to provide workshop space with mezzanine and a large roof light, creating the perfect artist/crafting studio or home office perhaps with electricity and WiFi connected.
