The property is in the heart of the village of Dishforth, which has a church, primary school, two pubs, a thriving village hall and garden centre.
The village is close to the A1(M) and there are rail links from nearby Thirsk, which has a rapid service to London Kings Cross.

Director Jonathan Hayward says: “Figures from Nationwide and Land Registry show the huge imbalance within the UK property market. While, London faces a 2.8 per cent jump in house prices this quarter alone, outstripping the 2007 boom, the rest of the country remains somewhat flat with a marginal rise of 0.8 per cent in the last month. Land Registry data also suggests that transactions outside the capital have dropped seven per cent in the last quarter. This is bad news for the wider economy as it impacts on manufacturers of white goods, builders, tradespeople, estate agents and surveyors and removers.” THE Help to Buy mortgage indemnity scheme which starts in January is expected to increase both house transactions and property prices.
Savills expects Help to Buy, which will enable people to buy both secondhand and new homes with 95 per cent mortgages, to add an extra 550,000 house sales over its three years of operation.
It anticipates that as a result of the 95 per cent mortgage scheme, house prices will rise by more than its current prediction of 11 per cent.
The Treasury is estimating the scheme will support 190,000 deals a year on top of the 74,000 sales it expects to go through under the shared-equity part of the Help to Buy scheme, which starts soon.
