West House, High Street, Stillington, York YO61 1LG

Sitting in the heart of this lovely village north of York, West House is a delightful eighteenth century property sympathetically restored and extended to create practical, contemporary living accommodation in a building of enormous charm and character. Together with its lovely walled garden, cottage, outbuildings and off street parking, West House is a family-sized property that would equally suit a country house owner wanting to downsize.

Detached period house of nearly 2200 sq ft with cottage, garaging and outbuildings
Formerly a house and village store, dating from the 18th century and not listed
South facing orientation overlooking the walled garden
Well maintained and updated over the last ten years to include a new damp proof system, new double glazed timber windows, chimney repointed
Many period features include open fires, exposed beams and brickwork, front door and internal cottage doors, quarry tiles and stable door.
Superb, generously proportioned, family kitchen/breakfast room with quarry tiles, oil-fired Aga, butler sink and granite worktops. Alongside is a useful utility room and boot room.
Wonderful garden room facing south and west with a skylight and French doors opening on to the garden terrace
Dining room with open fireplace and brick alcove revealing an old oven 
Snug with quarry tiles, open fire and views over the garden
Formal 21ft sitting room with multi-fuel stove and French doors opening south onto the garden terrace with its west facing mellow brick wall
Modern bathroom fixtures and fittings. The large house bathroom has glorious views over pastures and woodland.
Principal bedroom suite has privacy being on the eastern wing of the house
Two bedrooms with fitted wardrobes
Detached self-contained cottage successfully let as an Airbnb.  There is potential to develop and extend the cottage on the eastern boundary.

Outside
The house is elevated and set back from the village road above a deep grassy bank.  A rear lane leads to the 5-bar gate which gives access to the walled courtyard flanked to three sides by the garaging (brick with pantile roof), stores and cottage.  The garage block comprises a large double garage with up-and-over doors and a single double height garage with timber doors, all secure.  Attached  to the garage is an enclosed and open store.  The beautifully renovated single storey cottage has its independent entrance facing the courtyard.  The sunny garden links the house to the outbuildings, faces south and has a 12ft mellow brick wall on its western flank.  It is sheltered and well screened, largely laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees. An elevated York stone terrace borders the house providing a number of sunny spots from which to enjoy the garden.
