The Old Orchard is a huge home in the popular semi-rural village of Hopperton with over 4500 sq ft of accommodation set within private gardens and there is also a paddock, extending to approximately 2.5 acres (1.038 hectares) in all.
Senior Associate Nick Alcock, who is the Branch Manager at our Knaresborough branch, sold this same property back in 2007, and since then the current vendors have substantially extended and improved it. Nick was appointed to sell the property following the successful sale of Pear Tree House, a neighbouring home, whose owner personally recommended Dacres, Nick says: “Homes of this calibre are hard to find. It’s a magnificent property which has been built from attractive reclaimed clamp bricks and extended in recent years to create a beautifully appointed and substantial family home in a great location.”
With six stunning reception rooms on the ground floor there is a grand reception hall, magnificent drawing room, elegant dining room, playroom, family room, games room, gym, superb character-filled living kitchen and separate utility room.
Nick adds: “It’s a really versatile property with so much space and delightful open views. Upstairs there is an attractive galleried landing, master bedroom with a dressing area and large en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom, also with an en-suite shower room, and three further double bedrooms and a luxurious house bathroom.
“Everything within the house is a high standard, from the oak flooring to the wood burning stoves, the top-end bathrooms and the first-rate kitchen, which has a Belfast sink and homely Aga.
“There is an attractive lawned garden at the front surrounded by brick walling, and at the back of the house there are two fabulous stone terraces and another lawned garden, which is sheltered by maturing trees and shrubs. A five-bar gate leads to the orchard and paddock, which extends in all to approximately 2.5 acres. The delightful open views of the surrounding countryside are another feature of the home, and the fact it’s just a short distance from the A59 means it’s an easily accessible location, ideal for commuting to Harrogate, York or further afield via the A1.”
