Cottage with a view
• Astonishingly spacious detached dormer bungalow • Spectacular southerly views • Surprisingly generous and versatile accommodation • 4 Bedrooms ( 2 with en suite) • 4 Bathrooms • Desirable location • Detached tandem garage with workshop area • Ideally placed for local market towns
is a stunning property, built in 2006 and providing generous and versatile accommodation which is by no means apparent from the first impression. The light and airy accommodation has been thoughtfully planned with bedrooms to both the ground and first floors resulting in its suitability to a broad range of potential buyers. It is centrally situated within the hamlet of Arrathorne and enjoys panoramic views over the surrounding countryside as well as having the benefits of double glazing, LPG central heating (under-floor to the ground floor accommodation) as well as a detached tandem double garage with further workshop area to the side. The external appearance is of a traditionally styled barn conversion which belies the fact that there are four bedrooms and four bathrooms as well as two good sized reception rooms and a breakfast kitchen.
Arrathorne is ideally placed between the market towns of Bedale, Leyburn and Richmond, all of which provide a range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities. It lies but 5 miles west of the A1(M) providing links with the major commercial centres of the North-East. Darlington Main Line Railway Station and Durham Tees Valley Airport provide further communications with the rest of the country.
