An idyllically positioned detached country cottage set in delightful gardens of around 0.25 acres & enjoying breathtaking views across open countryside, on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Meadow Cottage dates from around 1912 and consists of a beautifully positioned country cottage, enjoying panoramic, long range views across open countryside.
The property has been seamlessly extended during the current owner’s tenure, to create a delightful home with numerous appealing features. The accommodation comprises entrance hall, sitting room with log burner, spacious open-plan dining kitchen/family room, utility room, guest cloakroom and an orangery. To the first floor is a master bedroom with Juliet balcony, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a house bathroom. Constructed of red brick, the cottage benefits from upvc double-glazing and oil-fired central heating.
Set in a lovely plot of approximately 0.25 acres, there are well-established gardens to the front and rear, which enjoy a high degree of privacy. Its cottage gardens feature lawn, a variety of clipped shrubs, several trees, including mature eucalyptus, flagged patio area and a lily pond. Climbing roses and ivy adorn the front of the house, along with a border packed with spring bulbs.
The sought-after village of Brandsby lies roughly 14 miles north of York, on the edge of the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is well placed for access to the nearby Georgian market towns of Easingwold and Helmsley (6 and 10 miles respectively), where there are excellent facilities. Meadow Cottage enjoys a rural situation outside the main village, set well away from the road, and accessed via a good quality private driveway.
