A remarkable country house enjoying stunning views and set within a superb, 5 acre site including mature gardens, paddocks and woodland, located within an especially well-served and sought-after National Park village.
Ellerstang is a fascinating period property with a long history dating back over 200 years. The house was re-modelled and gentrified in the early 20th Century, resulting in many of the superb Arts & Crafts features that are still in evidence today. This handsome and imposing residence is constructed of coursed stone under a pantile roof, with leaded mullioned windows, oak panelling, a fine principal staircase and numerous period fireplaces. Under the current ownership the property has been completely renovated and refurbished with a seamless extension added to the rear. The result of which is an exceptional family home, providing over 5,500 sq. ft of beautifully presented accommodation, ideal for entertaining.
For all that Ellerstang is a period property, it runs very much as a contemporary home. The central heating system has been significantly upgraded and is powered via a bio-mass boiler, which provides a welcome RHI of approximately £13,000 p.a. The electrics have been replaced, with separate circuits on each floor. The property features Cat5 cabling, making it ideal for anyone wishing to work from home and there is superfast high-speed broadband and 4G available (provider dependant).
The accommodation is arranged over three floors, extending to 5,565 ft2 in total and comprises; entrance vestibule, cloakroom, impressive front facing reception hall with oak panelled walls and oak cantilever staircase, library, front facing drawing room with cast iron multi fuel stove, large family sitting room/den, breakfast room with original Butler’s cupboards, high-quality bespoke kitchen by Gibson’s of Whitby and adjoining pantry. Opening out from the kitchen is a light-filled living room, a recent extension which faithfully invokes the external aesthetics of the property whilst introducing modern touches including underfloor heating and has French windows opening straight out onto the stone flagged terrace to the rear. Additionally, there is a utility/boot room, guest cloakroom and a side porch to the ground floor.
Two sets of stairs lead up from the ground to the first floor, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, separate dressing room and four further double bedrooms, house bathroom and a separate WC. On the second floor a suite of rooms provide a further bedroom with large shower room and dressing room, a fully equipped cinema room, large home office and separate attic room with potential to be used as a further bedroom if required.
Ellerstang is located on the southern edge of village and is set in an elevated position with an attractive and uninterrupted moorland view.
The property is set in attractive mature grounds and land of around 5 acres, with a large grass paddock ideal for those purchasers with equestrian or small holding interests. Mature woodland and a wildlife pond broaden the appeal to conservationist, whilst the gardens are a delight and are well geared towards a sociable entertaining space, or equally as a family garden. There is ample off-street parking.
