Additional Information

Constructed of heritage brick under a pantile roof with ornate brickwork and a porch, this handsome property dates from 2009. Along with its lovely gardens it has matured to evoke a traditional house rooted in a timeless village setting. Behind the timber sash windows lies a modern and energy efficient house with solar panels, rainwater harvesting and high specification fittings; there are engineered oak floorboards, floor-to-ceiling picture windows, a handmade Howdens kitchen and contemporary Utopia bathroom fittings from Watermark in Malton.

The kitchen/dining/living room is a large and light room that extends some 32 ft providing ample room for a family-sized dining table and sofa. The Howdens kitchen includes an island unit, granite worktops, Butler sink, island unit with breakfast bar and an electric Aga with gas hob. A door flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows opens to the lawned garden, and behind is a large utility/laundry room with useful cupboard space and a further door giving access to the covered rear terrace. The sitting room is triple aspect with French doors onto the lower garden and a wood-burning stove housed in a traditional stone fireplace with hearth.

The central hall is generous in size with a traditional staircase rising to the first floor landing giving access to all four double bedrooms and house bathroom. The principal bedroom suite rises into the roof space with exposed beams, a garden window and full-height picture window giving views of the 11th century village church. Its bathroom includes a rooflight and large walk-in shower with rain-fall head. The second bedroom suite has two fitted wardrobes and a bathroom that also includes a walk-in shower with rainfall head. The two further bedrooms enjoy south-facing views to the Yorkshire Wolds and the house bathroom has a four-piece suite including a roll-top bath, walk-in shower and heated towel rail. A part-boarded loft offers scope for development, subject to consents.


A well-established hedge with wrought-iron garden gate entirely encloses the lovely south-facing front garden. A central pathway with stone steps connects the lower and upper lawns via a formal arrangement of clipped box hedging and lavender. There is a productive apple tree and both Pyracanthus and climbing rose adorn the front elevation. Two wrought-iron garden gates flank the front elevation giving access to the rear.

A side lane gives vehicular access to the walled garden and grounds that lie to the rear of the house. Here is a block paved driveway providing parking for four cars and a large garage with workshop. The double garage – constructed of brick and pantile - has power and light. A pergola connects the house and garage along the western boundary with a terraced area outside that serves as an entertaining/dining area served by a nearby electric source and enjoying a sunny west facing position. A broad flight of stone steps within a clipped yew hedge and flanked by a richly planted embankment of perennials leads to the lower terrace and lawned area. The lawn is encircled by colourfully planted perennials within raised beds of railway sleepers. A secure wooden garden gate within the high wall gives access to the lane. There are outside taps and sensor motion lighting


Crambe is a peaceful rural village in the Howardian Hills with an historic church, traditional red telephone box and some lovely walks along the picturesque, wooded valley.
