  • Bedrooms: 4
The Orchards is a wonderful family home with just over 4 acres of paddocks immediately adjoining the property, with impressive views to the rear of the whole range of the Cleveland Hills. The house itself would benefit from some modernisation and enjoys a large welcoming hallway, living room, family/sitting room, study, conservatory, cloakroom/w.c and a utility room on the ground floor. The first floor features four good-sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. The property is approached via a private tree-lined entrance road giving access to The Orchards, where there is a large gravelled driveway and a turning circle. The gardens to the rear are now in need of some pruning back to regain their former glory but it is clear these were once a lovely feature of the house, along with the many fruit trees giving the property its name. Paddocks are located to the front, side and rear of the property, giving plenty of options for livestock or simply just space to enjoy, all within a short distance of Stokesley itself.
