A handsome stone built detached village house, recently extended and sympathetically refurbished throughout to provide versatile and beautifully presented family friendly accommodation on a grand scale. 7.5 acre paddock available by separate negotiation.

Oak House is one of a number of substantial detached stone houses which line the no through road which runs through the heart of this picturesque rural village, but few have received as much attention in recent years. Dating from the mid 1800's, this handsome former farmhouse has been the subject of an extensive programme of renovation and refurbishment works which have included the incorporation of a former outbuilding and the redevelopment of a former dairy, resulting in a deceptively spacious home which has lost none of its original character but now benefits from a wide range of features perfectly suited to modern family lifestyles.

Whilst the original farmhouse has seen many improvements it retains a relatively traditional layout and boasts numerous period features, although many of the rooms have been compressively refurbished and updated, none more so than the kitchen which was designed and fitted by Scawton Kitchens to feature a dual module and gas Aga, Miele appliances, double depth Italian granite surfaces and underfloor heating. This quality theme continues through the dining room and study which both benefit from solid oak floors and attractive cast iron radiators, and upstairs where a new extension has created a generous master suite with vaulted beamed ceiling. The other 3 bedrooms are served by 2 modern bathrooms, 1 of which is en-suite. The remaining ground floor accommodation forms an east wing which currently arranged as a play room, snug and guest bedroom, although this area has been designed on the basis that it could form a self-contained space ideal for dependant relatives or as a rentable space.

The property stands back from the peaceful main street behind a large lawned front garden, dotted with mature trees, with a gravelled drive to one side leading to a gated courtyard garden to the rear, bound by a range of traditional outbuildings currently serving as a games room and garage/workshop. There is also a 7.5 acre paddock a short walk away on the edge of the village, ideal for equestrian use and available by separate negotiation.

Cold Kirby is a small but picturesque hamlet situated on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, a short drive to the market towns of Helmsley (7.5 miles) and Thirsk in the opposite direction (8 miles), both offering numerous facilities, Thirsk having a rail link to York, Leeds and London (2hrs 19mins). The village is dissected by the Cleveland Way which is one of many routes available from the front door providing numerous spectacular walks.

Agents note: Planning permission has been obtained for a further 2 storey extension from the breakfast room to create a large double height rear entrance hall. Further details are available on request.

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.
