Teal House, Chapel Street, Nunnington, York YO62 5UP
This is a particularly appealing, double fronted attached village house, dating from the late 18th century. Constructed of limestone with a pantile roof, it has been skilfully extended and sympathetically renovated in recent years to create a substantial home entirely in keeping with the requirements and expectations of modern family life. Located in the heart of Nunnington, a remarkably pretty, well preserved estate village, the house faces a traditional red telephone box and has a timeless charm seldom seen even in this most cherished part of the Howardian Hills.

The delightful garden is linked to the house but lies slightly apart. It is elevated with glorious views over the village rooftops towards the Moors. There is a good-sized lawn, a stone terrace under a pergola clad in wisteria, jasmine and rose, two apple trees of great character, some raised beds, a garden shed and holly tree standing sentinel. A stone outbuilding provides further storage. The garden is bordered by low timber fencing and there is a footpath at the far corner that ascends gently to the village church.
