Hunters Chase is a charming family home offering a wealth of character features combined with high quality specification including bespoke Iroko wood window frames and doors. The property is set in a stunning semi-rural location in an attractive enclave of only a few other private residences. Despite been surrounded by lovely open countryside the property is within easy reach of other sought after village locations including Ripley, Summerbridge and the renowned spa town of Harrogate. There are also a number of well known attractions on the doorstep including Ripley Castle, Fountains Abbey and Brimham Rocks all within a few minute’s drive.

Double panel doors open into a well proportioned sitting room with stone fireplace and woodburning stove, exposed beams and French doors opening out into the formal garden. There is a comfortable light filled snug with oak floor and stove and opens through into a stunning farmhouse style bespoke fitted dining kitchen again with oak flooring and a comprehensive range of hand painted units complemented by granite preparation surfaces and a matching island with adjoining dining table. There is a feature 3 oven AGA and AGA American style fridge-freezer adjacent to which is a bespoke larder cupboard with double doors. The adjoining utility room is equally impressive again with oak flooring and pippy oak fitted wall and base units and accessed from the utility through the garage or externally is a spacious home office with lovely countryside views.

At first floor level a split level galleried landing provides access firstly to the principal bedroom with exposed beam, 2 windows with lovely views, large walk in wardrobe and a fabulous en suite shower room with vaulted ceiling, large walk in cubical and fitted vanity unit with wash basin. There are then 2 additional bedrooms, study/bedroom 5 and house bath/shower room. The fourth double bedroom has its own private staircase leading off the landing and features exposed beams and roof trusses with vaulted ceiling.

Outside the houses are initially approached off Stripe Lane down a beautiful tree lined driveway which leads into a courtyard in front of the property providing ample parking for several cars. This in turn leads into the double garage with twin up and over doors and electric car charging point. The attractive cottage style walled formal gardens lie principally to the rear of the property designed for ease of maintenance and comprising a large paved sun terrace, lawned garden area with raised flower and vegetable beds. The garden provides ideal outside entertaining space and the properties are surrounded by lovely open countryside with extensive walks quite literally on the doorstep.

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.
