Mill Cottage is a picture postcard cottage dating back to the Seventeenth Century located within a scenic Conservation village on the very edge of the Howardian Hills area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property has been comprehensively renovated and refurbished to a high standard, cleverly blending period charm with modern convenience and a tasteful scheme of interior décor. The cottage retains a significant amount of its original character, including York stone flagged floors, exposed beams and a working cast iron range. The accommodation is light and airy, with a versatile layout and many appealing attributes. In brief, it consists of a characterful dining kitchen with an AGA 60, elegant living room with log burner, utility room and guest cloakroom. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a house bathroom; all of these rooms enjoy vaulted ceilings and the third bedroom is accessed from a half-landing and could also be used as a study.
The quality of the cottage is perfectly matched by its garden, which is a great size, enjoying complete privacy and has been attractively landscaped to maintain year-round interest and enjoyment. The central section of lawn is flanked by well-stocked shrub borders and a gravelled path leading to a granite-paved terrace at the far end. Along the northern boundary is a productive vegetable patch, greenhouse and useful potting shed and log store. A glazed garden room currently serves as a delightful home office. To the side of the Mill Cottage is a gated driveway and its appealing front façade features a well-established wisteria and a cottage border stocked with hydrangeas and box hedging.
Howsham is a classic Yorkshire village, enjoying peace and quiet, yet within easy reach of amenities in the popular market town of Malton and the city of York. It sits within a scenic stretch of countryside, where the Yorkshire Wolds meet the Derwent Valley yet is within 3 miles of the A64, allowing for rapid access to the wider metropolitan area. Mill Cottage forms part of Howsham’s picturesque streetscape made up largely period houses and cottages all located along the same side of the street, along with its Grade I Listed parish Church, which Mill Cottage sits alongside.
