Wass House, Wass, North Yorkshire YO61 4BQ

Wass House is a singularly attractive stone built house in the heart of the village with lovely gardens to the rear. Dating from 1750 and enjoying views of Byland Abbey from the first floor, its fine architectural features span the centuries and sit beautifully with the contemporary styling. This is an authentically eighteenth century family house restored with great sensitivity and flair. 

Large house of more than 4000 sq ft arranged over three floors, with cellars
South facing orientation with the principal rooms overlooking the lovely gardens
Enjoys the advantage of not being Listed
Abundance of period features: bay windows, full-height original sash windows, fireplaces with Georgian hob grates, cast iron radiators, stripped floorboards, exposed beams, plasterwork and cornicing, well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings throughout
Renovated and restored in 2004: re-roofed (English pantiles and Westmorland slate), re-wired, re-plumbed, re-modelled and very well maintained during the interim
Handmade Shaker kitchen with Aga, Butler sink, island, floor clay tiles, original 12-pane window overlooking the garden, rear access
‘Secret’ playroom accessed through a concealed staircase
Five elegantly proportioned reception rooms.  The drawing room was originally the Estate Manager’s office and has a very high ceiling and rear access
Cellar/basement, ideal for wine storage
Superbly designed bathrooms with high quality fixtures and fittings
Wonderful and varied gardens with open outlook at the rear
Sits alongside The Stapylton Arms – a peaceful gourmet village pub favourably mention by the chef, James Martin

Outside
Wrought iron gates to the east of the house give access to a drive, parking and turning area in front of the double garage (with power and racking), ample for three cars.  A high stone wall with door and window screens this area from the pretty courtyard terrace, which is accessed from the kitchen and utility room and overlooks the formal garden. Facing south and framing the house is a formal landscaped garden with manicured box hedging and stone pathways. A band of English woodland featuring a Copper Beech separates this classically structured garden from the less formal garden area at the rear.  A line of young Silver Birch trees line the western boundary.  Beyond the mature trees lies a further stretch of lawn leading to the rear boundary with its open outlook across fields and rising hills.  On the western boundary is the kitchen garden, greenhouse and orchard; on the eastern elevation the hen coop.

Environs
Ampleforth 2 miles, York 18 miles, Easingwold and Helmsley 6 miles, Thirsk railway station 9 miles (distances approximate).

Wass is a picturesque, rural village with a highly reputable dining pub, The Stapylton Arms, and a village hall.  It lies in the Hambleton Hills, nestled at the foot of Wass Bank near Coxwold and Byland Abbey.  The village and magnificent countryside which surrounds it falls just inside the southern border of the North York Moors National Park. In nearby Ampleforth there is a village shop, two public houses, a doctors’ surgery and the eponymous college. Slightly further afield are a number of thriving market towns - the splendid market towns of Easingwold and Helmsley are roughly equidistant.
