AN EXTREMELY CHARMING LISTED PROPERTY IN THE HEART OF A POPULAR AND ACCESSIBLE VILLAGE
East View lies in the heart of the popular village of Borrowby which has the benefit of a Church of England Primary School and Nursery, Village Hall, Methodist Church and Public House. The village itself lies a short distance west of the main A19 York – Teesside trunk road thereby making for quick and easy access to the A1 Great North Road, the wider motorway network and the commercial centres of Teesside and the West Riding. Teesside Airport lies about 20 miles to the north. There are main line railway stations at York, Northallerton and Thirsk providing services to London (Kings’ Cross), Newcastle and Edinburgh as well as the Trans-Pennine route. There is a full range of local services in the popular Georgian market towns of Easingwold and Thirsk.

Immediately to the front of the property is a cobbled parking area. The front door opens to a spacious stone flagged Entrance Hall from where stairs rise to the first floor and adjacent to which is the Cloakroom. Beyond lies a heavily beamed Sitting Room with period fireplace featuring a basket grate and stone hearth and from where French doors open to a fine Orangery being a superb recent addition and which adds considerably to the appeal and flexibility of use of the accommodation.
