A spacious individual house
In an elevated position with extensive views
Sought after village location
5 bedrooms


A SPACIOUS INDIVIDUAL FAMILY HOUSE IN AN ELEVATED POSITION WITH EXTENSIVE VIEWS ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF THIS MUCH SOUGHT AFTER VILLAGE

Ampleforth House lies in a quiet position at the very end of Back Lane which as the name suggests, lies on the southern edge of the village where it enjoys a good southerly aspect and from where there is a wonderful vista over the Ampleforth valley from the upper floors.

Ampleforth itself is a renowned village lying on the southern edge of the North York Moors National Park. There are many attractions in the area to include the North York Moors Steam Railway, mansion houses such as Castle Howard and Nunnington Hall and ecclesiastical ruins to include Rievaulx Abbey and Byland Abbey. The village itself has the benefit of two public houses, both Church of England and Catholic churches and is also home to the renowned public school of Ampleforth College (now fully co-educational) where there is a sports centre offering a wide range of facilities to the general public. Close by is Gilling Castle, home to St Martin’s, its junior school.

Constructed of attractive brick elevations under a pantile roof with dressed stone windowsills and lintels with keystones, Ampleforth House is an extremely attractive contemporary property with the extensive and well appointed accommodation designed to provide maximum flexibility of use thereby making the property eminently suitable to a wide variety of potential purchasers.   The layout takes full advantage of the property’s position and of particular note is the most charming and stylish raised Drawing Room which is of elegant proportions and with two sets of glazed double doors to the front elevation makes for a most light and spacious principal reception room of great character and from where there are wonderful views over the Ampleforth Valley.

Steps lead up from an elevated front sun terrace to a spacious Entrance Hall which in turns gives access to the domestic offices and also to a good sized fully fitted Dining Kitchen with Aga. Stairs lead up to the raised section of the ground floor which is given over to the Drawing Room and Study. Of particular note is the lower ground floor which with its own separate entrance, could readily be utilised as a separate self-contained accommodation for a student, dependant relative or alternatively, for letting purposes generating a most useful secondary income if required.

To the front of the house is a good sized tarmacadam parking and turning area and adjoining which is a raised lawn approached from the house via a flagged south facing sun terrace and protected by a good high perimeter Beech hedge. The rear garden contains various specimen trees to include Cherry, Pine, Silver Birch and Eucalyptus which create pleasant dappled shade in this private garden where an area of stone flags makes a most wonderful sheltered summer seating and al fresco dining area. Completing the picture are a Summer House, Greenhouse, Bicycle store and Garden Shed.
