This traditional Yorkshire longhouse of considerable character dates from the 17th century and is reputed to be the oldest property in the village. Lying perpendicular to the main street, it has all the advantages of being in the heart of the village without the disadvantages of being overlooked. Over the years, the adjoining farm buildings have been successfully incorporated and remodelled to create a much larger property. Beautifully renovated with new Yorkshire sash windows and underfloor heating, fully insulated and dry lined, this is an extremely comfortable and appealing house of great verstility.

The property lies off a quiet lane and deep grassy verge with eponymous duck pond, the house itself sitting proudly perpendicular to the main street. Timber gates open on to the gravel drive and parking area where the house faces the outbuildings. Here is a purpose-built double car port, and three loose boxes and a tack room with power, light and water. Additional timber gates give access to further outbuildings housing the utility room and store which together have planning permission to be converted in to a two bedroom cottage. Adjoining these are two barns both with water, power and light. The first has a strong room connected to the property home security system; the second Dutch barn is weatherboarded to the north elevation and has a mezzanine level workshop. Behind the barns lies the functional garden area with a greenhouse and kitchen garden. The formal gardens sit immediately behind the house. Accessed from the kitchen is a large and sheltered Yorkshire stone patio providing a perfect seating and al fresco area. It falls away in gentle lawned terraces intersected by a stone path, each terrace divided by topiarised box hedging and edged with colourful borders and dry stone walls. Behind are glorious country views. A central green path connects from the stables to the ‘long acre’, a fenced paddock of 1.4 acres fringed by trees. Tucked away to the far side of the garden is a small area with a timber hexagon Grill House or traditional Finnish Grillikota with flue and air-flow, perfect for all-year-round barbecue gatherings.
