Two village homes packed with plenty of character are for sale with Dacre,Son & Hartley Knaresborough. Both are ideal for commuting to Harrogate, York and beyond, yet benefit from a semi-rural location with handy amenities. 

The Barn, Gowlands Farm is set within a small, gated development, of just three properties, which were converted in 2007 by a York-based construction firm. Beautifully appointed, the four-bedroom home is located on York Road, in the popular village of Green Hammerton. Its owner, Mr Neil Spiers, was attracted to the character features and local amenities. Neil said: “The inglenook fireplace and feature beams really appealed. We also really liked the 37 ft long living area, which has full-length glazed doors and windows that fill the room with light and look out over our enclosed garden and open fields beyond. 

“Within 10 minutes, I can walk to Hammerton station and be into York in around 15 minutes and then hop on a connecting train to London. I can also easily get the train to Harrogate and Leeds and access the A1 motorway really quickly too. For a semi-rural location, there are some great amenities in Green Hammerton, with a petrol station, Co-op convenience store, farm shop and even a Chinese takeaway all on the doorstep.” 

Senior associate, Nick Alcock, from Dacres Knaresborough, said: “It’s a great property with off-street parking, a private and enclosed garden and fabulous accessibility.” 

The Barn, Gowlands Farm is on the market for £475,000 and has a reception hall, guest cloakroom, drying room, sitting room with dining area, a garden room and a dining kitchen with a Rangemaster oven. On the first floor there is a galleried landing, master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, separate dressing room, an en-suite shower room, guest bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double rooms and a house bathroom. 

The second village property, new to the market with Dacres, is Corner Cottage in Scriven. Nick added: “This really is a picture-perfect property. Extremely attractive, the Grade-II listed cottage is double fronted and full of character. With a fabulous spot overlooking the green in this prime village location, on the fringe of Knaresborough, Corner Cottage is a real delight.”

On the market for £315,000, the period cottage has an attractive lounge and dining kitchen, both with beamed ceilings, two bedrooms and a house bathroom. The property’s current owner said: “My wife and I knew this property well as we lived in the neighbouring village of Scotton and had first seen it when it was for sale 10 years ago. We fell in love straightaway, as it’s such a pretty property, so when it came up for sale recently, we jumped at the chance to buy it. 

“Within the first few minutes of walking in, we were sold! It’s idyllic and has a great feel to it. It is a beautiful cottage with lots of character in a fabulous position in the village too. We think it’s around 300 years old, and one of a handful of original homes built around the village green. Just opposite the cottage is a little lane that’s perfect for walking the dog. You can also walk into Knaresborough in around 15 minutes, which has every amenity you need. 

“Since buying Corner Cottage, we’ve decorated, installed new granite work surfaces in the kitchen and put new carpets in throughout. We are sad to be selling up and are only moving because we have the opportunity to build a home in the village.” 

At the front of Corner Cottage is an attractive cottage style garden overlooking the green and to the rear there is a small walled courtyard and useful external storeroom.
