Lofthouse, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG3
This stunning village home is deceptively spacious and has been sympathetically modernised to provide four bedroom family living with quality fittings throughout, set within delightful gardens with open views at the heart of an attractive Nidderdale village.
This very attractive stone-built property is particularly well-presented having been carefully restored and stylishly modernised over recent years to provide a comfortable family home in a picturesque setting. Offered with oil-fired central heating, the immaculately presented interiors retain a wealth of character including timber framed windows, attractive stone fireplaces and exposed beams to the ceiling.
There is a reception hall with guest wc/cloak room and tiled flooring, leading to an impressive living/dining kitchen with a range of quality units with an Aga and granite work surfaces, opening to a living/family area with French doors to the garden. There is a central dining room and well-proportioned sitting room with multi-fuel stove. In addition there is access to a lower ground floor utility room with access to the garden.
To the first floor the impressive master bedroom features a luxury en-suite and built-in wardrobes, there are three further bedrooms and a well-appointed house bathroom. To the second floor there is a further double bedroom and a versatile study/bedroom.
Externally there is a forecourt garden to the front with a hand gate within a low stone wall boundary. To the rear there is an elevated decked terrace adjoining the living kitchen, with superb distant views across surrounding countryside. Steps lead to a lower level terrace with covered area ideal for outdoor entertaining, beyond there is a paved patio and a lawned garden with flowering shrub borders and mature trees providing a good degree of privacy, within a low stone wall boundary and again having superb views across the river and beyond.
