About the property

AN IMPOSING LISTED 17th CENTURY HOUSE WITH SUPERB WALLED GARDENS ON THE EDGE OF THE TOWN.

Dating from the 17th Century and listed Grade II, Keld Head House is an imposing period property constructed of attractive coursed stone elevations under a pantile roof, situated on the western edge of the popular market town of Pickering. The listing reveals that the property was the home of the Piper family whose whaling vessels were some of the most successful of their time. Their captain, William Scoresby gained a name for himself in 1870 by inventing the "Crows Nest" from which to track whales. The property has elegant proportions and the extensive accommodation, which for the most part is double glazed, contains much fine Oak panelling and a plethora of beams and other period features throughout. Externally, the private walled gardens are a true delight having been landscaped and well maintained and provide the most perfect setting for this splendid property.

Pickering itself lies just 12 miles east of the renowned Georgian market town of Helmsley and 9 miles north of Malton and is well situated for access to the amenities offered by these centres as well as those available in the town centre itself. The nearby North York Moors National Park and Dalby Forest offer many miles of hill walking and outstanding scenery to enjoy. There are numerous small villages and pubs and the coast at Scarborough is within easy driving distance where there are excellent sandy beaches whilst further north is the dramatic coastline near Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby. Attractions in the region include the North York Moors Steam Railway based at Pickering and to the south, in and around the Howardian Hills (themselves a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), lie the mansion houses of Castle Howard and Nunnington Hall, the ecclesiastical ruins of Rievaulx Abbey and Byland Abbey and castles at Helmsley, Pickering and Scarborough.

DIRECTIONS
From Pickering town centre take the A170 heading due west
towards Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley. Keld Head House is
virtually the very last property on the right hand side of the
road.
