Con­ver­sion with char­ac­ter per­fect for com­muters

and cloak room. On the first floor, there is a master bed­room suite, three fur­ther bed­rooms and a fam­ily bath­room.

Out­side, there is a dou­ble garage, a sum­mer house and garden store. The gar­dens are laid to lawn and in­ter­spersed with a va­ri­ety of trees and shrubs.

They also have an or­na­men­tal pond and ter­rac­ing ideal for out­door en­ter­tain­ing.

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.

The area is be­com­ing pop­u­lar with those who work in Leeds thanks to the up­graded A1(M). Prop­erty prices in this area are lower than those in the golden tri­an­gle. COUNTY Home­search say there is a huge re­gional im­bal­ance in the hous­ing mar­ket.

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.

The con­ver­sion of this former gra­nary in Dish­forth has cre­ated a spa­cious and light-filled home.
