Take a Look Inside this Contemporary Family Home in the North York Moors National Park
A wonderful detached property in the village of Castleton
Set on the northern flanks of the North Yorkshire Moors in the breathtaking Upper Esk Valley (an area that has become known as ‘Heartbeat country’) Castleton is a centre for outdoor pursuits. To refuel after exploring there is a local Co-op, the refurbished Eskdale public house which is dog and walker friendly and has won accolades for its real ales, Deli 23 delicatessen, and more. Not to mention there’s also a primary school, bowling and tennis club, cricket pitch and children’s play area close to the Esk river.
In Castleton you’ll also find 46 High Street, a wonderful detached contemporary home, and this stylish, spacious and well-presented accommodation is ideal for both family living and entertaining. Renovated by the current owners in 2014 it is decorated to a high quality throughout, creating an outstanding living space over three floors and extending to 3194 square feet. Highlights include a stylish kitchen, modern bathroom suites, a roof terrace, a large decked balcony off of the kitchen and mature landscaped terraced gardens.
The impressive open-plan kitchen, living and dining room is a superb space ideal for modern living, with two sets of floor-to-ceiling sliding doors leading out on to the balcony with amazing views towards Great Ayton. The kitchen is well equipped with a range of drawer units below the sink, an island incorporating a breakfast bar and a Neff Carson induction hob, a wall of stylish units positioned on the back wall, and all of which is rounded off with a black riven granite worktop.
Completing the ground floor is the study area, which is open to the family area overlooking the front of the house. By the entrance door is the downstairs cloakroom and a sizeable utility room accessed from the kitchen and garage. The ground floor area benefits from underfloor heating and low-level lighting.
There is a modern glass staircase leading to the first floor, where the principal bedroom at the rear is served by a stylish ensuite bathroom and built-in wardrobes. In addition there are three French doors, two with Juliette balconies and one set leading out to the large roof terrace.
The second bedroom is a substantial space with two French doors leading out to the roof terrace. There is a further double and single bedroom, as well as a large family bathroom, on this floor. Stairs lead up to the second floor with a generous fifth bedroom including built-in wardrobes, a separate sizeable bathroom, a useful storage room and a good space that could be used as a study area.
Stone steps lead down from the composite decked balcony to the first terraced area and garden store and continue to the second terrace, where there is a contemporary garden room with log burner and a decked area overlooking the pond, ideal for home working or leisure time. Below is the third garden area which is all grass land and has been used by the current owners in the past for goats and chickens.
The property is approached via an electric gate onto a gravelled driveway leading to the integral garage with an electric door, while there is a gate to the side leading to the garden. The property has the benefit of two solar panels for heating water, making it as sustainable as it is stylish.
