Brook Cottage is pleasantly situated in the centre of the small rural hamlet of Caldbergh which is situated within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is conveniently located just south west of the popular market town of Leyburn and the historic town of Middleham, within reasonable travelling distance of Bedale, Masham, Ripon and Richmond. It is also within reasonable commuting distance of Newcastle, Tyneside, Harrogate and Leeds.
Brook Cottage was purchased by our vendors four years ago and has been sympathetically renovated throughout. It has been superbly refurbished to exacting standards, preserving many original features of the cottage, including feature beams, alcoves, stone shelves and exposed stone work as well as incorporating cast iron radiators and plantation shutters giving the property a superior feel. The property is beautifully appointed and tastefully decorated throughout. It benefits from under floor oil fired central heating.
On the ground floor you enter the property into the Entrance Hall with a stone flagged floor and stone seat. This leads into a delightful Sitting room where a log stove takes centre stage in a stone fire surround. The Dining room has a beautiful ‘Fired Earth’ terracotta floor with exposed stone wall and this leads to the stunning Kitchen. A beautiful two oven cream Aga (available by separate negotiation) sits in a stone Inglenook surround with fitted wall and floor units. There is a second living room with French doors that open onto the garden and a most useful Utility room also. The original pantry has been retained and is used as a downstairs cloakroom complete with original stone shelves.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms. Two are double bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms and there are two smaller single bedrooms with an immaculately presented family bathroom.
The property is accessed via timber gates. This leads to a gravel drive with parking for up to four vehicles. To the left of the drive there is a kitchen garden suitable for growing fruit and vegetables. To the front of the property there is a low maintenance garden.
