An individual and characterful detached cottage offering charming and well presented 3/4 bedroom accommodation, occupying a lovely position close to the heart of this popular and sought after village, conveniently located between Harrogate and Ripon.

Curlew Cottage is an attractive village property, offering an excellent opportunity situated in the desirable and highly regarded village of Bishop Monkton. The village is a popular location, particularly sought after due to the selection of amenities within the village, including a church, two public houses and a village hall, as well as a top performing local primary school. For the commuter, the village is well placed for both local and national road routes, including the A61 and the A1(M), whilst for public transport, local bus routes pass through the village and rail links are accessible from the stations at Harrogate, Northallerton and York.

The property is arranged over two floors and has been significantly enhanced and rebuilt by the current owners since its purchase in 2009. The accommodation is arranged in a predominantly linear format, combining a number of previously independent structures, with the ground floor comprising a reception/dining hall leading into a bespoke hand-fitted kitchen, custom designed by The Main Company in Kirk Hammerton, with adjoining utility area and cloakroom.

Three further excellent reception rooms include a comfortable sitting room, large study/reading room and a family snug to the rear. The first floor is split into two sections linked by a Jack and Jill arrangement comprising a principal bedroom with Jack and Jill bedroom/dressing room adjoining, two further double bedrooms (one with en suite facilities) and a house bathroom.

Approached through wooden gates into a large gravelled drive that extends to an entertaining area with garden store/outbuilding to the rear. The property benefits from a private walled garden with open lawn area, offering a pleasant and enjoyable setting with an attractive south westerly aspect, ideal for both family use and entertaining.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
