Victorian family house in a rural hamlet close to Malton.

The country kitchen is well equipped with an island, multiple wall and base units, integrated appliances with space for a double door fridge freezer, Range cooker and granite worktops. This family living space continues through to the dining room with the same tiled floor; here the French doors open to the west facing garden terrace and a tall window on the eastern elevation brings morning light into the room.
The sitting room has generous proportions and character with its exposed brick wall, raised wood-burning stove and traditional mantel that probably dates back to the original building. A smaller room with a tall window facing the front garden would serve equally well as a snug, playroom or study. There is a ground floor bedroom suite with a study area and shower room that would be ideal for a teenager.
Upstairs the three additional bedrooms are all doubles served by a large family bathroom which is fully tiled with a heated towel rail and bath with shower over. Far-reaching country views can be enjoyed from both of the rear bedrooms.
The gravelled entrance and drive lies on the north side of Fullerton House. This area follows a newly planted laurel hedge leading to the garage and outbuildings with ample space for parking and turning. From here a wrought iron garden gate provides the sole access to the gravelled front garden that is both secure and private with a high timber fence and the original garden well (capped). A further garden gate opens to the rear garden which has a paved terrace adjoining the house and faces west. A generous stretch of lawn is framed by a well-established bed of perennial shrubs, a fine old oak tree and high timber fence. An additional landscaped garden on the far north western corner of the property is designed as a quiet space with a paved al fresco terrace sheltered by bamboo and topiarised shrubs with a lowered fence allowing unbroken views of countryside beyond.
Situated midway between Malton and Pickering, Low Marishes is a rural hamlet with a Church of England chapel and a full range of services available in the nearby market towns. ‘Yorkshire’s food capital’, Malton, is a few minutes’ drive away and plays host to many fine independent shops, cafés and restaurants, a cinema, cottage hospital, good schooling and a railway station with a regular service to York and Scarborough. The City of York can be reached in about half an hour and its mainline railway station connects to London Kings Cross in under two hours. Just eight miles to the north lies the North York Moors and Dalby Forest with ‘Go Ape’ and its world class mountain biking trails. Whitby and the superb beaches on the Heritage coast lie within forty minutes’ drive.
