Description(Reference number: 72751)
If it feels as though you've stumbled through a timewarp, it's because this home dates back to 1620 and has all the character to prove it. Within neatly manicured lawns and a whopping seventeen acres of land, it's the Jacobean manor house that time forgot (except for a few minor adjustments like room-to-room surround sound, that is). A colourful country kitchen moves through to rich, wood-panelled living spaces, where luxurious red and leather furnishings bring a warm, cosy feel. Light the crackling fire and this place really comes to life. On the first and second floors, a whole series of bedrooms – each with their own unique flavour – reveal secret nooks, dens and quirky antique furnishings. There's plenty of room to forget reality altogether here, but the nearby village and the draw of a pub is only a short stroll away. From your doorstep you can head off on scenic walks in search of ruined castles and ancient abbeys, and the grand old city of York is only half an hour an away by car.
