This country house is a summer sale bargain
Toby Millbank, of Strutt and Parker, Harrogate, says: “They have decided that as a result of the gloomy economic outlook and with an acceptance that the top end of the country house market has been difficult in 2011, they should reduce the price of their property. We are expecting a lot of interest as a result.”
Woodgate House is on the edge of the village of Weeton and enjoys views over lower Wharfedale. The main house has six bedrooms and there is also a pretty three-bedroom detached cottage plus a range of outbuildings to service the adjoining 10 acres of land.
On the other side of a lane is an additional 15.9 acres of land available for sale separately with a guide price of £150,000.
“The property has a large set of outbuildings which would suit a small-scale amenity farm or could also be converted to an equestrian use, while the cottage could be let out or is ideally suited for older children or dependant relatives,” says Toby.
The house is decorated in classic country house style and has many period features.
It includes a drawing room with French windows to the south, a large dining room, a snug/playroom and a kitchen/ breakfast room with an Aga.
Beyond is a rear entrance lobby with separate door towards the parking area and there is a good range of domestic offices within the main house.
Upstairs, there is a master bedroom suite, five additional bedrooms and a house bathroom.
The cottage boasts an entrance hall with pantry adjacent, a generous kitchen, dining room and drawing room.
Upstairs there are three large bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside, there is a courtyard garden and there are main gardens to the south. The 10.2 acres are all laid to grass separated into well-fenced fields.
Woodgate House is a beautiful country home which has been priced to sell
