A unique barn conversion with huge potential, privately positioned in a sought-after village within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, together with gardens, parking, garage & extensive range of stone outbuildings.

Manor Cottage is a unique barn conversion with a range of useful outbuildings tucked away in a private location in the centre of a sought-after village. Converted from a range of stone barns during the mid-1980s, the result is an idiosyncratic home with huge appeal and significant potential.

The property is hidden from view, positioned to the rear of The Manor House, with which it shares an access. As a result, Manor Cottage is shielded from the road and yet is within a few steps of all of Hovingham’s many amenities.

Whilst the property has been maintained, it might now benefit from some gentle updating, offering a new owner the opportunity to fit it out to their own taste and specification. Windows are single glazed, and heating is currently via Economy 7 night storage heaters.

The house itself enjoys a versatile layout, which could very easily be reconfigured to suit, and the accommodation extends to a little over 1,500ft2, comprising entrance vestibule, guest cloakroom, inner hall, kitchen with pantry, dining room, sitting room and two interconnecting studio rooms. To the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a house bathroom. Adjacent to the main house is a fantastic garden room and potting shed amounting to over 500ft2. Subject to securing any necessary consents, there is potential to link this to Manor Cottage itself, to create a substantially larger home, if required. Further to this there is a large garage and workshop which provide valuable storage and hobby space, but once again with further opportunities.

Manor Cottage and its outbuildings are set around a delightful and extremely private courtyard garden, which is stocked with a wide variety of shrubs, plants, and specimen trees. There is a further strip of garden to the rear of the house and a gravelled parking area just by the garage.

Hovingham is one of North Yorkshire’s best-loved villages, set within the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is well-served with a number of facilities including a Doctor’s surgery, village shop, and bakery. There is a regular bus service running through the village. The popular market town of Malton is located approximately 8 miles east and has in recent years gained a reputation as Yorkshire’s food capital. Helmsley is also within easy reach, 7 miles north-west.
