Coun­try home in a quin­tes­sen­tial English vil­lage

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY - Sharon Dale

West Hill, Rus­ton, near Pickering. Price: £545,000 Con­tact: Roun­th­waite and Wood­head, tel: 01751 483007, www.roun­th­wait­e­wood­head.com THIS farm­stead nes­tles in a quiet spot be­tween Pickering and Scar­bor­ough and it’s easy to see why Justin and Jude Terry fell in love with it.

The cou­ple bought the coun­try property 19 years ago and have since re­fur­bished the house and con­verted the old barn into work space.

The barn has been used as an ate­lier when Justin made be­spoke suits and is now home to daugh­ter Lauren’s card and can­vases busi­ness, www. lau­ren­scows.com. It has po­ten­tial for use as an an­nex, hol­i­day cot­tage or of­fice.

The orig­i­nal cot­tage is be­lieved to date back to the 1700s, though its hum­ble ap­pear­ance was al­tered in 1849 to cre­ate the rather more grand Ge­or­gian-style frontage.

It has a charm­ing kitchen with Aga, a large din­ing room that spans the full width of the house and a front en­trance that gives ac­cess to a sec­ond re­cep­tion room, rear lobby and ground floor wet­room. The property has two stair­cases; one from the kitchen that gives ac­cess to a bed­room on the North­ern side of the house, and the cen­tral stairs that gives ac­cess to the up­per floors.

Up­stairs, there are four bed­rooms and a house bath­room on the first floor, plus two loft rooms on the sec­ond.

Out­side, the house is ap­proached via a grav­elled drive and park­ing area that fronts a stone-built, open fronted garage and ad­join­ing range of use­ful work­shops and out­build­ings. There is a well stocked, ma­ture, part-walled, gar­den is at the front and side of the house.

Justin and Jude are sell­ing so they can down­size to a new home in Northum­ber­land.

“It’s a fam­ily house and it’s too big for two people so that’s why we are mov­ing.

“We’ve loved liv­ing here. It’s a de­light­ful, quin­tes­sen­tial English vil­lage with farms, horse rid­ing, and even a lit­tle stream with a bridge. It’s re­ally lovely and very handy for the road and rail net­work,” says Justin, who adds:

“We’ve done a lot of work to the property but there is still some po­ten­tial in the out­build­ings.”

Rus­ton is a quiet, pic­turesque vil­lage just of the A170. Much of the land and build­ings are owned by the Wyke­ham Es­tate. West Hill is one of the few free­hold prop­er­ties in Rus­ton and so its sale is a rar­ity.

West Hill, be­tween Scar­bor­ough and Pick­er­ing, comes with a con­verted barn and a range of out­build­ings.
