Cottage for sale

Unique cottage with an oak tree at its heart comes to market

A truly unique three bedroom cottage, which features a stunning reclaimed oak tree that has been lovingly sanded and oiled to produce an amazing centre piece, is for sale in Thornton Bridge near Helperby at £425,000.

Considerable thought and effort has gone into the design of the extended cottage which also features a kitchen boasting a number of handmade units using timbers from the original property.

Harriet Naish-Bain, Property Agent at GSC Grays said: “The current owners sourced the tree and have cleverly created a “Grand Designs” feel in the cottage with the tree at its centre along with a locally made bespoke, wrought iron staircase. It really does set this property apart.”

The cottage benefits from sympathetic décor throughout, a solid fuel central heating and heritage-style double glazing. Outside the property, there is a stunning landscaped garden and views onto the open fields surrounding the cottage.

The entrance porch opens onto a sitting room with a feature fireplace with inset wood burning stove which provides the heating and hot water. The kitchen benefits from Velux roof lights with a window overlooking the beautiful garden.

The oak tree and the wrought iron staircase lead to the landing and the main bedroom is to the front and has two windows offering views over open countryside and the river beyond.

The rear garden benefits from clever planting and a sunken seating area with a paved patio positioned to the rear of the kitchen.

The property is situated a short drive from Helperby, a pretty historical village located equidistant between Boroughbridge and Easingwold. York is accessible via road and a nearby park & ride and the motorway network via the A1 is only a 10 minute drive.

1 Thornton Manor Cottages is currently on the market with GSC Grays Boroughbridge office with a guide price of £425,000.  Tel: 01423 590500
