Wilsill, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG3
Attractively positioned with south-facing views across Nidderdale, this very spacious country home comprises a six bedroom family house and adjacent detached barn, with formal gardens and extensive grazing land, 7.25 acres (2.93 ha) in total.
An increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a substantial detached property set within its own grounds, with outbuildings and an opportunity for the purchaser to modernise to their own taste. The property occupies an elevated position with exceptional views, south-facing to the front. The original house has been extended over the years to provide 3,850 sq ft of accommodation which would now respond well to a programme of refurbishment. There is a courtyard area to the rear with a large detached barn with various openings and having scope for conversion, subject to receipt of the necessary consents. In addition there is a further outbuilding which is currently used as a games room. Externally there is a terrace to the front, lawned gardens and established shrub borders. To the rear there is a paved terrace and a useful amenity area. The property is approached by a lane through the fields with a wooded area to the south. The fields are grassed with post and rail and walled boundaries.
The house features oil-fired central heating and double glazed windows. There is mains water supply and drainage to a private septic tank.
