Yorkshire Dales country house with superb views comes to market

A prestigious five bedroom country house set in the heart of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park has come to market for offers over £1,100,000

The Old Parsonage, which dates back to 1846, is situated on the edge of the pretty village of Low Row in Swaledale, on the southern side of the River Swale with a local pub, The Punch Bowl, a stone inn, dating from 1638.

John Coleman, head of country house sales at GSC Grays, said: “The property has been sympathetically renovated retaining its historic charm. Many of its original features remain, including the traditional doors, stone flagged flooring, exposed timber floorboards, an original staircase, wood panelling, ceiling roses, attractive fireplaces, timber shutters, and sash windows.

“The outstanding views are showcased by dual aspect windows to maximise the effect of the picturesque surroundings.”

The accommodation, which has four bathrooms, is laid out in a traditional Georgian Style, with an entrance hall leading to the three reception rooms, ground floor bathroom and breakfast room. The kitchen features fitted units made by Neptune, with leathered granite work surfaces and an Aga. There is also a separate baking room, with matching Neptune units and links to a formal dining room.

The Old Parsonage has five spacious double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms. The principal bedroom has a contemporary shower room, which is laid out in a Jack and Jill style.

The ground floor benefits from a high-quality bathroom with a free standing roll top bath.  The lower ground floor has a spacious games room and large boot room with access to the main garden situated to the side.

The property has a substantial lawn and an enclosed raised terrace, with a summer house to enjoy the stunning views.

The town of Reeth is situated approximately 4 miles away with the market towns of Leyburn, 13 miles and Richmond, 15 miles away respectively.

Leyburn is known as the gateway to the Dales with easy access from the A1 while the nearest train station is at Northallerton (about 30 miles) with a regular service on the east coast main line to York, Newcastle, London or Edinburgh. Leeds Bradford is the nearest international airport with an increasing number of services now being offered from Durham Teesside Airport.
