A garden gate opens to the rear garden which is enclosed and sheltered on the southeasterly boundary by a traditional stone outbuilding semi-detached at its rear to the neighbour. A high timber fence lines the northern and rear boundaries. The lawn extends from the house and is scattered with mature trees including a silver birch as well as established shrubs and borders stocked with colourful perennials. A gravel path links the house to the annexe and two garden stores, the larger of which has a power supply.
The annexe lies within a part converted, stone outbuilding separate from the house, situated in the rear garden.

Harome is one of the best loved of Ryedale’s traditional villages with its wide main street with green verges, thatched cottages, duck pond and parish church. It is set at the foot of the Moors adjacent to the market town of Helmsley and bounded by glorious countryside including the rivers Riccal and Rye. Unusually for a small village, it is home to two country hotels/fine dining establishments, the 14th century The Star Inn with its Michelin star and the award-winning Pheasant Hotel. Helmsley offers a range of superb local facilities as does the market town of Malton, known as Yorkshire’s Food Capital, which has biannual Food Lovers Festivals and a railway station connecting to the coast, and York with mainline services to Leeds, London, Liverpool and Manchester Airport. There are excellent state and private schools within easy reach of Harome and the City of York lies some 45 minutes’ drive to the south.
