House and gar­den in har­mony

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

en­trance hall, lounge and a 27ft long, light-filled sitting room with six large win­dows with views over open coun­try­side. The din­ing room has orig­i­nal built-in cup­boards and the draw­ing room fea­tures pe­riod pan­elling. The ground-floor also has a break­fast kitchen, cloak­room and util­ity room. On the first floor, there is a land­ing with dou­ble door onto a bal­cony, two store cup­boards, a mas­ter bed­room with en-suite bath­room, a guest suite with shower room, two more bed­rooms and a fam­ily bath­room. There are cel­lars for stor­age. Out­side, there are land­scaped gar­dens, a pond with wa­ter­fall and a car port.

“We have been here 15 years and bought it be­cause we we lived in Cum­ber­worth be­fore and thought we’d bet­ter be closer to civil­i­sa­tion,” says Mrs Gar­side.

“We love the size of the rooms and the gar­dens here and then house has a lot of char­ac­ter. The main part is Ge­or­gian, but the back of the house was two cot­tages from the early 1700s and so that has quite a dif­fer­ent feel.”

The cou­ple say they are sell­ing “with re­gret” to down­size once again. “We are get­ting older, so we plan to move some­where smaller,” says Mrs Gar­side.

OPEN AS­PECT: The Ge­or­gian house has magnificent views.
