The main living room has a Juliette balcony with superb bird's eye views of the River Ure and wildlife on the doorstep. The property has been finished to a high standard throughout with underfloor heating to the ground floor, which is stone flooring in the hall, and oak in the open plan living/dining/kitchen. Other features of note include exposed stone work, window seats, and log burner in the living area and a large master bedroom suite with vaulted and beamed ceiling. The property also benefits from a large integral garage, allocated parking and a low maintenance lawn area to enjoy the tranquil surroundings. The property makes an ideal permanent or holiday home.

The current owners particularly enjoy the private and tranquil river location, living in a National Park, by a Waterfall, the bird and wildlife, fishing rights and being able to put on their boots and walk straight from the door. As well as good food at the Hotel and Pub in Aysgarth Village, a short walk away, and a choice of Award winning cafes on the doorstep.
