Halfway House is a handsome Victorian mellow brick house of nearly 3700 sq ft dating from the nineteenth century. With the principal house comes a detached cottage and barn, the former providing a steady annual income for the current owners. Halfway House enjoys an edge of village location between Crayke and Easingwold with elevated views of the surrounding countryside, surely some of the most picturesque in North Yorkshire.
• Principal house has 6 bedrooms and 2 reception rooms
• 3 bedroom granary and 1 bedroom barn annexe
• South west facing conservatory and drawing room overlooking the garden
• Modern kitchen with 4-oven Aga and separate oven
• Original panelling in the dining room
• Open fires in reception rooms
• Under floor heating in conservatory and utility room
• Far reaching rural views
The house is approached via Daffy Lane which leads onto a well maintained driveway with ample parking. The gardens lie predominantly to the south and west of the house, laid mainly to lawn, bound by mature hedging and dotted with clusters of specimen trees. They are perhaps best enjoyed from the terrace. In addition to the formal gardens there are two paddocks of a few acres both with gated entrances, fenced and hedged boundaries and one with a useful field shelter as well as a wooded area at the far end.

There are private educational opportunities at Ampleforth, Terrington Hall, Cundall Manor, St Peter's and Bootham. As well as York, Leeds lies within commuting distance.
