The idyllic country setting of Lastingham is where you will find this early 18th century property known as St. Ovin’s, a truly wonderful village house arranged in the style of a Yorkshire longhouse and providing almost 3,000sq.ft. of beautifully presented accommodation. Interior characteristics include beamed ceilings, traditional brace & ledge doors, Yorkshire sliding sash windows, deep sills, window seats and feature fireplaces. Within the last couple of years, the Boot Room & Snug have been completely renovated and the heritage style décor scheme throughout the property creates that cosy ‘ready to move into’ feel. The heart of the house is a sociable kitchen/dining/sitting room where there is a well equipped kitchen with integrated appliances, central island and a range cooker. The dining space will comfortably accommodate a family size table and the sitting room area has a wood burning stove set into an antique cast-iron cooking range. There are three separate staircases leading to the first floor rooms comprising 5 bedrooms (two en suite) and a house bathroom.

There is much to admire outside too …with a well stocked raised garden and seating area at the front providing the perfect spot for morning coffee. An age old Wisteria flanks the southern elevation of the property giving it that quintessential English look. From the landscaped walled gardens to the south west there is a superb view of St. Mary’s church and here, in between gardening chores, there are many places to sit and enjoy the glorious surrounding countryside. With all year round interest, the garden is neatly contained within low level stone walls and includes a useful stone outbuilding for storing garden tools etc.

From the village street, there is access to a stone built garage with electric up and over door with parking space in front and loft storage above.
