Banking on Georgian splendour in market town

The Francises are also selling neighbouring Bank House Cottage for £350,000.
Bought as an investment, it has been transformed by Jo into a four-star holiday let, which has a gold award from Cottages4You.
It has a high occupancy and is popular with visitors to the town as well as walkers exploring the North York Moors National Park. The cottage has a breakfast kitchen, sitting room, three bedrooms and a terraced garden. The cottage could also act as a separate wing for people wanting independent space.
Both properties are being sold after two unexpected additions to the Francis family.
“With three children, we didn’t even think about moving, but twins came along and it now means we could do with an extra bedroom,” says Jo.
Bank House boasts five bedrooms and comes with the chance to buy an income-generating cottage.
