A MOST CHARMING REFURBISHED PERIOD PROPERTY IN THE HEART OF THIS RENOWNED VILLAGE
Ampleforth itself is a renowned village lying on the southern edge of the North York Moors National Park and has the benefit of two public houses, a shop and post office, tea room and both Church of England and Catholic Churches and primary schools. It is also home to the renowned public school of Ampleforth College (now fully co-educational) where there is a highly regarded sports centre offering a wide range of facilities to the general public.
Believed to date from the middle of the 18th Century, Moorside Cottage is a charming period property of stone elevations under a pantile roof with dressed stone window sills and lintels and lies in the very heart of this highly regarded village. In recent years the property has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of renovation and upgrading and now offers well appointed accommodation of quite some quality and style. The entirety of the ground floor has the benefit of wood-effect laminate floors and the Sitting Room has exposed ceiling timbers. The Kitchen is well appointed with a range of worksurfaces with cupboards and drawers beneath and also incorporates a convenient Breakfast Bar. There is also a ceramic single drainer double bowl sink unit and plumbing for dishwasher whilst the adjacent Laundry/Rear Lobby has plumbing for a washing machine. To the first floor, the Master Bedroom has a walk in hanging wardrobe whilst the House Bathroom has the benefit of a high quality contemporary suite to include a bath with shower head over.
Externally, steps lead up from the rear of the property past stone edged beds containing Roses and other annuals and perennials to a part gravelled and flagged Sun Terrace offering a good south and west facing summer seating and al fresco dining area. To the rear of the terrace a door opens to a good sized stone and pantile outbuilding currently used as a general store.
Approaching Ampleforth from the south turn left into the Main Street and after a short distance Moorside Cottage is on the right in a slightly elevated position.
