Country homes that have far-reaching views
THIS magnificent mid 19th century rectory stands at the highest point of the village and boasts commanding views across Ryedale, the Vale of Pickering and the North York Moors.
The stone and slate property dates from 1858 and to prove how elaborate the specifications were, the owner has the original instructions to the builder.
Estate agent Tim Blenkin says: “In North Yorkshire, dower houses, manor houses and smaller country houses of that ilk are particularly scarce, largely because the great estates have not sold and released properties of this stature.
As a result, the carefully and elaborately constructed rectories very often prove to be the best family houses available. This is true in Nunnington, where The Old Rectory has a dominating position and offers splendid family accommodation.”
