Situated amid the glorious scenery of the North York Moors National Park, with sweeping views both up and down Dale, The Cottage is a real misnomer. No doubt starting life in the 18th Century as a cottage the property was significantly altered in the late 19th century creating an appealing mix of character touches and features. Under the current ownership the property underwent a significant programme of improvement. Rather than extending the now sizeable accommodation the ethos this time was on creating an energy efficient, low impact character property whilst not compromising on style and finish. The result is an immaculately presented traditional stone farmhouse with the energy rating of a newly built modern home; in short, the best of both worlds.
The property was stripped back, and high levels of insulation added to the roof, walls and floor. Double glazed units fitted throughout in hardwood frames. Central heating is provided via a ground source heat pump, hot water through solar panels to be roof and electric through photovoltaic panels. Between these sources the property currently benefits from RHI's of nearly £7,000 PA, covering the majority of the domestic running costs for the property. The property scores a B in both energy efficiency and environmental impact.
The Cottage provides over 3,500 sq. feet of accommodation, arranged over three floors and comprises in brief; entrance hall with exposed dressed stone walls to part, dual aspect sitting room with multi fuel stove and far reaching views. Large open plan living, dining kitchen with a versatile layout and stylishly presented. Rear hall with boot room, cloakroom and utility room.
On the First Floor; master suite with double bedroom, separate dressing room, second floor study/ hobby room and high specification en-suite bathroom with fittings by Fired Earth. Three further double bedrooms and a bath and shower room with the retained 1930's bathroom suite. On the top floor is a large attic bedroom with ample storage.
Externally the property faces due south and is set within a generous plot of approximately 0.85 acres. To the easterly edge is a productive vegetable and soft fruit garden with the formal lawned garden lying to the immediate sides and front of the house. Beyond is a small grass paddock. The Cottage has number of useful traditional stone outbuildings complementing the productive nature of the current grounds. The building includes the large detached former stone barn, which now provides a three-bay garage with access directly off the road side. Further buildings include a workshop, garden and log store and two former loose boxes.
Glaisdale is a thriving moorland village with Post Office/shop, well-regarded butcher, primary school and a public house and lies amidst beautiful scenery in the valley of the River Esk.
