The Grange

Little Crakehall, Bedale
Guide Price £825,000

A wonderful opportunity to acquire this lovely period farmhouse set in stunning gardens and grounds, situated on the edge of the popular and picturesque village of Crakehall.

The Grange is a period farmhouse of classical proportions probably dating back to the 18th century, with later additions, and is traditionally constructed of natural mellow stone with slate roofs, gabled elevations and small pane sash windows. The front door leads to the welcoming reception hall off which the principal reception rooms flow; including the double aspect drawing room with open marble fireplace and working shutters, formal dining room with feature fireplace and study with fitted bookcases. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes the spacious breakfast kitchen with fitted oak units, quarry tiled flooring, Aga and archway to walk-in pantry, office, utility / boot room and cloakroom. There is also a substantial cellar with stone flagged flooring. Stairs rise from the inner hall to the first floor landing, with a splendid feature arch window, giving access to the master bedroom and principal guest bedroom, both enjoying fitted furniture and en-suite facilities. There are three further bedrooms and a house bathroom.

Situated across the pretty courtyard garden is a substantial outbuilding which is currently used as storage/workshop. Subject to planning and a small change of layout this could be used as an annexe to provide comfortable and characterful accommodation which could also easily be incorporated into the main residence.

The beautiful gardens and grounds are a particular feature of this family home. The garden is designed with well proportioned areas linking logically to create a series of pleasing rooms and vistas from both the house and the gardens. Fully planted mixed borders of spring bulbs, herbaceous plants and shrub borders provide year long colour especially throughout the spring and summer months. Mellow stone walls and steps, specimen trees and walled archways all combine to create the structure of the garden. The stone ha-ha preserves uninterrupted views across the surrounding countryside. The property also benefits from the adjacent fenced and railed paddock measuring approx. 1 acre.

The Grange is a truly unique property and setting offering a rare opportunity to enjoy country life.

The Grange occupies a superb position on the western edge of this popular and picturesque village. There is a range of everyday facilities available in the village of Crakehall including a village shop, petrol station, outstanding primary school and a public house. The property is also within easy daily travelling distance of the popular market towns of Bedale and Leyburn, both of which provide an excellent and varied range of amenities. The North and West Yorkshire and North East conurbations are within reasonable commuting distance – access to the A1(M) is within 4 miles to the east and there are mainline rail connections at Northallerton and Darlington as well as airports at Teesside and Leeds/Bradford.
