Ellis Cottage, Airton, North Yorkshire

£399,000 OIRO SSTC


An increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a deceptively spacious period property dating back to the early 1700's with many special features to talk about. Superbly located just off the village green and adjacent to the former Quaker meeting house, this delightful property offers plenty of scope for improvement to create what will no doubt be a delightful family home. As mentioned it is of excellent size, with a large living room featuring an Inglenook fireplace, separate dining room, a breakfast-kitchen, timber panelled reception hall, and having a further snug with exposed stone mullioned windows. To the first floor there are four bedrooms and a refurbished bathroom. Now requiring some updating and modernisation, more than likely to include rewiring but offering a great opportunity to put your own stamp on this amazing property.
