PROPERTY OF THE WEEK: Dog Tree Farm, Grosmont
Lying on the outskirts of Grosmont village in the mid Esk Valley, famed as the home of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Dog Tree Bank Farm is an idyllic smallholding. With stunning views and beautifully presented residential accommodation which is stylishly modernised.
There are a lot of reasons to like this property. It oozes charm and character with period detail retained where possible and modern luxury added.
The traditional three bedroom farmhouse design is modest in proportion, but has been enhanced with a double-glazed orangery which is certainly the star of the show.
Outside there is plenty of land for livestock plus a small pond, and a range of predominantly traditional buildings which offer scope for development, subject to planning, if you were inclined.
Privately positioned away from other properties, yet within a walk of the village centre. It is perhaps the solitude that strikes you most, making it worthy of serious consideration for anyone interested in this sector of the market.
The current owners took on the farm just over 10 years ago, having bought it privately from the then owner. Over a period of years they have restored and embellished the property, which many people will perhaps be unaware is even there. Although it remains within earshot of the puffing trains and steam whistles, the village can barely be seen from the property and you are principally left with beautiful views over the valley up to the moors beyond.
The buildings offer scope for hobbies and interests when not used agriculturally and could perhaps offer opportunity for conversion to further accommodation.
The guide price is £595,000. Contact Richardson and Smith on 01947 602298 for full details.
