Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

BLUE Beck is a stone cot­tage full of pe­riod char­ac­ter in 1.5 acres be­tween Eg­ton and Gros­mont.

It comes with stun­ning views across the Esk Val­ley and there is a stream and a wa­ter­fall at the bot­tom of the gar­den.

The prop­erty, which has scope for ex­ten­sion, has a kitchen, liv- ing room, sit­ting room, three bed­rooms and a bath­room.

An­drew Turner, head of res­i­den­tial sales at Smiths Gore, says: “This is a fab­u­lous lo­ca­tion which would suit ei­ther a fam­ily look­ing for a pri­mary ru­ral home or some­one look­ing for a sec- ond, hol­i­day home. Ei­ther way, Blue Beck is the kind of prop­erty that will at­tract buy­ers look­ing for a long-term prop­erty. With such a fab­u­lous lo­ca­tion and sur­rounded by Na­tional Park scenery and with the ad­van­tage of be­ing close to the coast at Whitby and Sand­send, Blue Beck has much to rec­om­mend it.”

Of­fers are in­vited in ex­cess of £350,000. For de­tails, con­tact Smiths Gore on 01904 756303. If the Dales is your pre­ferred lo­ca­tion, then Park House at Askrigg, near Ley­burn, could be per­fect. It is on the mar­ket for £250,000, but it does need com­plete ren­o­va­tion. The house is a twin gabled 17th cen­tury Dales house with a Vic­to­rian ex­ten­sion to the rear.

Ar­ranged over two storeys, there are two good re­cep­tion rooms on the south side of the house plus a kitchen and large pantry at the rear. A stone stair­case leads to the first floor where there is plan­ning per­mis­sion to cre­ate three bed­rooms and a large fam­ily bath­room.

There is plan­ning per­mis­sion to con­struct a sin­gle storey ex­ten­sion on the western end of the house which will pro­vide a util­ity room and a small con­ser­va­tory.

Ad­join­ing the house it­self is a for­mer agri­cul­tural byre, plan­ning con­sent ex­ists for this to be con­verted into a work­shop.

Out­side there is a small walled front gar­den and fur­ther land to the front of the prop­erty. To the side of the house is a walled garth/veg­etable gar­den with a small stone shed.

For de­tails, con­tact Ge­orge F White tel: 01677 425301.
