The village of Sowerby

The village of Sowerby links with Thirsk, but retains its own identity and is set in the heart of 'Herriot Country', the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park to the east. Thirsk is also the Darrowby of the late 'James Herriot' (Alf Wight), famous vet and author.

On Front Street, which is the main road through the village, an avenue lined with trees, is an old timbered house and the historical village church, and over Cod Beck at the southern end is an old packhorse bridge.

Local facilities include a reputable public house and a nursing home. There are several schools in Sowerby -Thirsk School on Topcliffe Road, and also a primary school. The village is within easy access of the A1, A19/A168 for commuting both north to Teesside and south to York.

Property Description

On entering the home you are welcomed into the large reception hall that allows access to the ground floor reception rooms and also a staircase to the first-floor accommodation. You will also note the high ceilings through the majority of the home which is a characteristic of this era. The generous sized lounge, to the front elevation, offers a large bay window and there is also a fire surround as a decorative focal point. This may be an ideal opportunity to have an original fireplace returned or perhaps a wood-burning stove.

The dining room, accessed from the reception hall, again is a very good size and will accommodate a dining table and chairs, though the current vendors utilise an area of the dining room for a home office. There is also a large window to the rear elevation and a door to the kitchen.

Completing the ground floor is the fitted kitchen with both base and wall units, electric cooker and hob, plumbing for utilities and also excellent work surface area. There is also a window and door to the side elevation.

To the first floor, the landing area leads to the bedrooms and also the bathroom. The master bedroom, to the front elevation of the home, is a superior size whilst bedroom two, to the rear of the property, is a further double bedroom. The bathroom offers a white three piece suite comprising panel bath with shower, w.c. and also a wash hand basin sink set on a pedestal. There is a window to the rear elevation and a tiled surround.

Externally, the courtyard offers an excellent opportunity for those wishing to add value to the home. The current outbuildings, used for storage, may lend themselves to be developed into a small home office or gym. Subject to local planning, a small extension to these would be ideal. With power already to them, they measure 1.74m x 1.31m & 2.81m x 1.298m
