Low Mill, Maltongate, Thornton le Dale, Pickering YO18 7SE
Well screened and set back from the village street behind a large front garden, Low Mill is a house with a well concealed surprise behind its handsome 1930s exterior. Hidden from the view of any passerby are enchantingly lovely lawned and wooded gardens intercepted by the clear running waters of Thornton Beck. With its idyllic setting in this most picturesque of Yorkshire villages, the games room and swimming pool and maintained to the highest degree both inside and out, Low Mill is a truly exceptional property.
• Large, light-filled house of 3584 sq ft styled to contemporary tastes
• Breathtakingly beautiful gardens and grounds
• Open plan living area spanning nearly 26ft, the entire depth of the house
• Property designed to enjoy the rear outlook with windows and doors principally facing or opening on to the rear garden
• 18ft garden room from which to enjoy the views of the tumbling beck, pond and landscaped gardens beyond
• Snooker room with double doors opening on to the flagged terrace
• Good sized, heated, indoor swimming pool within the eastern wing of the house, heated by environmentally friendly solar thermal panels and a biomass boiler as a back-up
• Ideal village location - short stroll from the village shops
The house is set well back from Maltongate, screened by a high mixed hedge and a number of beech trees, and a gravel drive sweeps round to the garage on the western side of the property. The deep front garden is largely laid to lawn with a rockery lining the path to the front door. At the rear, a stone flagged terrace wraps around the length of the house providing a perfect spot to admire the extraordinary gardens. A wide area of manicured, lawn meets the stone-lined beck which divides the garden and grounds. A small garden bridge crosses to the gardens beyond with sculpted lawns, shrubs and trees, and a garden path that meanders around the garden creating a magical walkway. A pond, fed by the beck, has a terrace and is perfectly situated to enjoy the sun. On the eastern flank the garden overlooks open fields.
