A substantial, Grade II Listed village house of more than 3,500sq.ft, offering six bedroom accommodation (subject to local needs occupancy condition), together with gardens, ample parking & stone barn with planning consent for conversion to a one bedroom holiday cottage.

The Royal Oak is believed to date from the mid to late Eighteenth Century and consists of a substantial, Grade II Listed village house of more than 3,500sq.ft.

The property fronts onto Church Street, in the centre of a sought-after Conservation village and occupies a plot of around 0.2 acres. The house, which is constructed of solid stone walls beneath a clay pantile roof, is subject to a local needs occupancy restriction, primarily to buyers who have lived within the parish of Nunnington, or one of its adjoining parishes for at least 3 years (full details of this condition are outlined later in the sales particulars.

The property retains a huge amount of character, with generously proportioned rooms, which might now benefit from some further improvement. The ground floor accommodation includes four front-facing reception rooms, an impressive dining kitchen with Mark Wilkinson cabinetry, a utility room and several cloakrooms. To the first floor there are five double bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite), whilst to the second floor there is a sixth double bedroom and store room.

Externally there are easily managed gardens and ample parking to the rear of the house, which enjoys a west-facing aspect, and a stone and pantile barn has full planning consent for conversion to a one-bedroom holiday cottage. The works for the conversion of the holiday cottage are confirmed as having been started and as such the planning permission is in perpetuity.

Nunnington is a picturesque village, located below Caulkley's Bank on the banks of the River Rye, within the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is well sought after and The Royal Oak is positioned towards the top of Church Street, at the centre of the village. The village benefits from a popular coffee shop within Nunnington Studios where there are various other independent retailers, and Nunnington Hall, owned by the National Trust, is free to visit for parish residents. Additional facilities can be found in the nearby village of Hovingham and also in the market towns of Helmsley (5 miles), Kirkbymoorside (6 miles) and Malton (10 miles).
