Highlands is set in the middle of a large plot of some three quarters of an acre favourably placed on the southern side of a hill with fields behind and far-reaching views to the south, east and west. This is a very private garden surrounded by a beautifully manicured leylandii hedge some 10ft in height. Great swathes of lawn encircle the house and mature trees and shrubs are scattered throught providing sculptural interest and further screening.  The house is reached by a sweeping tarmacadamed drive providing ample parking and a turning area, and is entirely surrounded by useful hardstanding.  There is an attached garage block with two electric doors, power, plumbing and light and two outbuildings providing storage for coal and wood.

Briggswath is a quiet hamlet of houses and an historic Wesleyan chapel that nestle together into the steep hill side with southerly views across the Esk Valley.  Part of the parish of  Eskdaleside-cum-Ugglebarnby it is named after one of the medieval bridges over the Esk.  Briggswath sits alongside its far busier neighbour, Sleights, an exceptionally well-served village with a wide range of shops, post office, primary school, church and doctor's surgery. Highlands is the highest house in Briggswath and the closest to Whitby, a lovely sea-faring town of national renown with a wealth of shops and high quality restaurants.  Whitby sits at the heart of the Heritage Coast surrounded by the glorious scenery of the North York Moors National Park.
