More Details

Prospect House Farm is a large and versatile family house of 4,122 sq ft arranged over three floors and beautifully appointed with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. At the heart of the home is the kitchen and breakfast room. The kitchen was handcrafted by The Handmade Kitchen Company and includes an oak island with built-in table, a Belfast sink, a Rangemaster Deluxe dual fuel range cooker and integrated Miele and Bosch units; French windows open onto the stone flagged terrace. The kitchen continues past the utility room and wet room to the breakfast room with four full-height glazed panels providing a superb outlook across the paddock and Vale of Pickering to the Wolds. A glazed atrium connects the kitchen to the western wing which features the adjoining barn, now developed into a magnificent, double height and double aspect drawing/dining room, some 35 ft in length, with a wood-burning stove housed in a stone fireplace and French doors opening directly onto the parterre garden. A staircase rises to a mezzanine floor housing the library, a delightful room with a vaulted ceiling and full-height windows giving glorious views to the Moors. Flanking the drawing room is a snug and TV room.

The principal bedroom suite is entirely self-contained with its own staircase, dressing room and bathroom. It rises into the roof space with skylights and enjoys a fine southerly outlook through a large window. There are four further double bedrooms and three bathrooms arranged over three floors, including a ground floor bedroom and a superb 32 ft room with vaulted ceiling on the second floor that serves as a bedroom with living area and study.

Gardens, Grounds And Driveway

Accessed via wrought iron remote-controlled gates, the property is approached via a sweeping driveway that passes a lake and then splits, giving access to the cottage, and continuing to the main parking and turning area behind the house, as well as to the yard and outbuildings. The lake is beautifully landscaped, planted with aquatic plants, irises and rushes and with its own island connected by a bridge.

The parterre garden with its summer house connects to the principal rooms of the house and enjoys a southerly aspect with views to the Yorkshire Wolds. This formal outside space is elegantly designed and abundantly planted with ornamental trees, shrubs and colourful perennials; there is a stone flagged terrace and the whole is enclosed by clipped hornbeam hedging. Also at the front of the house is a wildflower area as well as a woodland copse with grass walkways meandering between the trees. To the rear lies the kitchen garden, enclosed and rabbit-proofed with raised beds stocked with vegetables and soft fruit. Alongside is a garden shed, poly tunnel and Cedar greenhouse as well as a productive orchard with varieties of apple, pear and plum.

The land is ring-fenced, surrounding the house and outbuildings. It is suitable for grazing and equestrian with three enclosed paddocks each with a water supply and bounded by post & rail and post & wire fencing, bordered by mature hedgerows. To the east of the house is a long, broad stretch of flat grassland extending over 500 metres in length. A verdant green walkway marks the eastern boundary and follows the route of the old railway line; it is flanked by trees and meadow grasses with seating areas at either end, positioned to enjoy the view.
