A well proportioned Grade II listed property, we believe originally dates back to the mid 18th Century and was formerly one of several outbuildings associated to St Johns House, being documented as the Prebendary's residence to St Johns Church and has continuing associations with the Church throughout the 18th and 19th Century.
In it's current form, the property has been extensively renovated and refurbished by the current owners, both internally and externally and would now make a fantastic home for a variety of prospective purchasers.
The accommodation briefly comprises: Entrance Hall, spacious Sitting Room with space for dining table and chairs, further Reception Room arranged currently as a Snug, or could also be a separate Dining Room if required, Kitchen/Breakfast room. Downstairs storage area, with potential for further residential accommodation. To the first floor are three double Bedrooms and a spacious modern suite Bathroom. The second floor offers potential for further bedrooms, subject to the necessary Building Regulations.
A particular feature of the property is the well stocked enchanting walled garden to the rear, with paved and lawned areas. Access pathway leading directly to Church Lane, with superb walks down to the river, passing the rear of Knaresborough House up to Knaresborough Railway Station and the town centre. Parking is also available in St Mary's or St John's Church Car Park, where the current owners hold two spaces.
