Orchard Cottage, Back Road, Birstwith, HG3
A picturesque three/four bedroom detached country house with panoramic views and contemporary open plan interiors.
Orchard Cottage takes full advantage of its elevated position facing south with panoramic views towards Harrogate and indeed across
to the Vale of York as well as towards the White Horse at Kilburn. Also bordering farmland to the rear this enviable rural setting belies its Convenience on the edge of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the highly sought after village of Birstwith, having a strong sense of local community and a range of facilities
including schooling, doctor’s surgery, Church, shop/Post Office and popular gastro pub.
Extensive amenities in Harrogate are
some 8 miles distant and the location is recognised as being within commuting distance of Leeds and Bradford.
Believed to date from around 1800 Orchard Cottage has been the subject of significant extension and improvement in recent years including a new stone roof and fitment of Accoya windows. The result is a highly desirable home of considerable style having a strong emphasis on open plan living with a combined sitting room,
dining room and high specification kitchen area representing the best of modern day living standards. With three bedroom suites there is also a well-proportioned ground floor study that could
also serve as a fourth bedroom given the presence of plumbing connections if required. Overall the property extends to a floor area of some 2147 sq ft (199.4 sq m).
Externally there is a large garage block that can accommodate four vehicles with workshop space if required and there is a lawned area to the side with formal gardens to the front and strategically sited terracing to the rear that also has direct access off the study.
Overall a stunning country house with lovely views and contemporary interiors.
From the entrance to Belmont Grosvenor school proceed up the hill towards Menwith, along Back Road and the property will be seen after approximately 0.5 miles on the right hand side.
