and holds some of their hap­pi­est mem­o­ries, in­clud­ing their daugh­ter’s wed­ding re­cep­tion, which was held in mar­quees in the gar­den.

Over the years, the cou­ple have ex­tended into the out­build­ings to cre­ate a gym, steam room and games room and a gar­den loo that has been au­to­graphed by all it vis­i­tors.

The Bracks are sell­ing to down­size and have a grownup gap year or two now their chil­dren have moved out.

Holly House has an en­trance hall, sit­ting room with orig­i­nal in­glenook and open fire, din­ing room, cloak­room, study, kitchen and laun­dry, gym, steam room and games room. Up­stairs, there is a prin­ci­pal bed­room with shower room, three more first floor bed­rooms and a bath­room. On the sec­ond floor, there is a bed­room and at­tic room.

It has a host of pe­riod fea­tures in­clud­ing beams and fire­places plus York­shire light win­dows with ver­ti­cal glaz­ing bars.

Out­side, there are for­mal gar­dens, an or­chard with a well and an an­cient mul­berry, a tennis court, grass pad­docks and garag­ing. The house is set in eight acres.

Anne says: “It’s a won­der­ful fam­ily home and very peace­ful. The house sits in the mid­dle of its land so ev­ery room has a view. Trans­port links are also good, es­pe­cially the bus ser­vice into York. The last bus back from York is five past mid­night, which is great if you want a night out in the city.”

CHARM: The prop­erty is full of pe­riod fea­tures.
