Relax and unwind in this impressive country retreat, the perfect place for a large family or group of friends to celebrate any occasion in glorious surroundings.
Tucked away in the picturesque village of Wighill, this impressive Edwardian Mansion dates back to 1835. Nearby there are lovely walks through the fields, and a charming village pub serves delicious home-cooked meals. For those wanting to venture further afield, the market town of Tadcaster is nearby, as is the ancient walled city of York. Here you can browse the cobbled streets, indulge in a spot of retail therapy, or try one of the many acclaimed bars and eateries. The spa town of Harrogate, famous for its elegant architecture and Harlow Carr Gardens, is also within easy reach. For family days out, both Castle Howard and Harewood House are just a short drive away. Centrally located for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, the area is a paradise for walkers and cyclists alike.
A grand entrance leads to the stunning drawing room with an abundance of character and a plethora of antique furniture. With a range of comfortable sofas and chairs, cosy up in front of the open fire, put your feet up and delight in your favourite tipple. Along the hallway is a separate WC, followed by the lounge/cinema room with large Smart TV, the ideal place for the whole family to watch a movie. Moving through to the kitchen/diner, which truly is the hub of the house, you’ll find a farmhouse-style table enjoying views over the garden. There is ample space for the chefs of the group to rustle up a home-cooked meal, and everything you could need is provided, including an oil-fired AGA, electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer and coffee machine. Through a set of double doors, you will find the formal dining area with stunning views over the fields beyond. Moving towards the North Wing of the house, you will find a boot/utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer, the ideal place to leave muddy boots and coats after a day of exploring. There is also a second kitchen/diner with an electric Belling cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. You will find a twin zip-and-link bedroom on this floor (which can be made into super-king-size on request) and an elegant bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and WC.
A flight of stairs leads down to the lower ground floor, which can also be accessed from the gardens. Here you will find a spacious twin bedroom with Smart TV and patio doors that open out to the terrace. There is also a bathroom with a free-standing bath, separate shower cubicle and WC. As you move upstairs via a grand staircase in the centre of the house you will find a separate WC and then a few more steps up to a king-size bedroom with a wooden cot. Off the bedroom is an idyllic en-suite bathroom with a bath where you can relax in the tub and enjoy stunning views over the Vale of York. Across the spacious landing is a decadent family bathroom with a roll-top bath, separate shower cubicle, Jack-and-Jill basin and WC. Down a few steps you will discover three further bedrooms: one king-size, one twin with basin and one twin zip-and-link (which can be made into super-king-size on request). There is also a bathroom with a bath with shower attachment and a separate WC. On the top floor of this stunning home, there are three final bedrooms: one double, one twin and one twin zip-and-link (which can be made into super-king-size on request), as well as a bathroom with shower over bath and WC.
Arguably, the most impressive part of this magnificent estate are the 14-acre grounds it resides in. With 3 acres of private gardens and fields to explore, enjoy the stunning scenery and breath-taking views. There is a spacious, walled garden boasting plenty of garden furniture, fire pit and a gas BBQ for al fresco dining. Here, you can relax in the Lazy Spa and let your worries drift away whilst spending quality time with loved ones. For those that are more active, take full advantage of the private tennis court. Enjoying an elevated position at the top of the estate is the garden/games room with table-tennis and bar area with fridge. Open up the double doors and take a seat in front of the firepit, the idyllic spot to make the most of the wonderful scenery. There is ample off-road parking.
