The sale of Forge Cottage represents a unique opportunity to purchase a stunningly situated detached cottage located in some of North Yorkshire’s most beautiful countryside, less than half a mile from from the monastic ruins of Rievaulx Abbey.
The sale of property in Rievaulx is exceptionally rare, given that it is almost entirely in the ownership of one local Estate. The property originally served as the village forge, which in later years was incorporated into the adjoining blacksmith’s cottage.
The original portion of the property is packed with character, and a two-storey extension designed by renowned Architect, Sir Martyn Beckett, blends in seamlessly at the rear. The overall accommodation amounts to approximately 1,600ft2 and comprises: entrance lobby, living room with dining area, sitting room, sun porch, kitchen, pantry, rear lobby, cloakroom, wc, utility room and boot room. To the first floor there are three bedrooms and a house bathroom. A garage adjoins the end of the house and offers potential to further enlarge the living accommodation, if required.
Forge Cottage occupies a lovely plot on the outskirts of the main village and amounts to around one third of an acre. The gardens are on all sides of the cottage and enjoy uninterrupted views across the adjoining countryside.
Rievaulx is a stunning and peaceful village, set along the banks of the River Rye. Its Abbey was the first Cistercian monastery in the north of England and founded in 1132 until it was seized in the 16th Century under orders of King Henry VIII during the dissolution of the monasteries. Its ruins provide a dramatic backdrop to one of the areas most enchanting locations.
It is within easy reach of the nearby Georgian market town of Helmsley, some 3 miles to the east, which enjoys a wide range of amenities. Thirsk is easily accessible too and has a railway station with regular connections to York and London Kings Cross.
