The Crescent, Glaisdale, near Whitby, £269,950

In some of our local villages it is surprisingly hard to find a practical family-sized house – there are often big houses and small cottages, but relatively few with three bedrooms, parking, a garage and garden.

Luckily, a property on The Crescent, Glaisdale, is one of them!

Set off the main road running through Glaisdale village, on Underhill, this semi-detached house is a beautifully presented home with lots of original stripped wooden doors, cupboards and other details.

The property has three bedrooms and a modern fitted bathroom upstairs, each of the larger bedrooms benefitting from lovely views over the Dale.

Downstairs there is a large lounge with an open fire and panelled ceiling, as well as patio doors opening onto an elevated south facing patio to the rear.

The other downstairs room is a split-level kitchen-diner which has a cosy log burning stove and is fitted with a range of painted handmade pine cabinets which have a contemporary finish.

Outside there is a private south facing garden to the rear with a good sized garden shed for hobbies and storage.

At the front of the house is an L-shaped brick paved driveway to allow plenty of room for parking and a garage/workshop is attached to the side which has a cloakroom in it as well as heating and could be added to the floor area, if required.

The whole house is double glazed and has oil central heating, as well as the stove and open fire. It all adds to the charm of a property that has the feel of a country cottage, but the proportions of a family home.

Lying in a village with a strong community spirit, this is one to add to your shorlist to view.
