An idyllically located, Arts & Crafts Gardener’s cottage, Glen Cottage lies only a few minutes from the centre of Scalby village, but with the wonderfully secluded feel of a more remote property. Built in 1926 Glen Cottage was restored and extended by the current owners around 15 years ago, with the focus on bringing the property into the modern world, whilst maintaining the character which is inherent within an Arts & Crafts home. The cottage occupies a slightly elevated position, with a terrace and with a first-floor balcony, providing a pleasant spot from which to sit out and overlook the mature grounds.
In all the Cottage provides 1,442 square feet which comprises the following accommodation: an entrance porch which opens through to the entrance hall with a ground floor cloakroom just off. A large open plan dining kitchen, with a triple aspect, French doors opening out onto a balcony with steps to a terrace at the rear and the living area with wood burning stove. To the front is a utility room and ground floor wet room. A cosy sitting room with bespoke oak bookcase which act as a concealed doorway through to the snug/study; two separate reception rooms which can be cleverly amalgamated into one. Upstairs a large first floor landing serves as a library landing with space for a sofa and desk. There is a large master bedroom with French doors opening onto a balcony and dressing room. Two further bedrooms and a house bathroom.
Scalby is a well-served and sought-after village some three miles to the north of the sea-side town of Scarborough and lies just outside the eastern boundary of the North York Moors National Park. The beach of North Bay is just two miles away.
