We are privileged to be able to bring this WONDERFUL property to market. You will find ‘Inkwells’ in the POPULAR VILLAGE of SLEIGHTS, on a corner plot at the junction of Coach Road and Eskdaleside. The property is located within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, and the village itself has all the amenities you need and is only 4 miles or so from Whitby. If you enjoy rambling, then your country walks can start from your own front door.
Starting life back in 1834 as the original village school, ’Inkwells’ is constructed with local Blue Bank stone and incorporates a traditional herringbone cut. This six bedroom property, which is set over two floors is full of character and affords you the luxury of a huge amount of flexible living space. The lounge alone has a double height ceiling and gets flooded with light through the three large windows and patio doors. Through the patio doors you can access the beautiful split level, flagged courtyard which is planted around the edges with an array of foliage. It is the perfect place to relax with a book and your beverage of choice. The country style kitchen is modern and well equipped with a useful utility area and separate W.C. off. But wait, there's more; dining rooms, snug, downstairs bedroom, boiler room with even more storage plus access to the integral garage. The entrance hall is spacious and welcoming with a feature arch window to the front.
At the top of the stairs, is a large, open landing from which you can access a further five bedrooms. All are fitted with a hand basin and storage cupboards. There is a family bathroom and Master bedroom with en-suite facilities.
'Inkwells' remained a school until the 1970’s. The current vendor ran the property as a very popular holiday let from 2002 to the beginning of 2020. If you're looking to relocate to the countryside, if you are looking for an investment property, or perhaps you're looking for a home that could accommodate multiple generations then look no further, 'Inkwells' could be the property you have been waiting for. This is your opportunity to own a unique property with almost 200 years of history.
If you think this could be your future home, please contact Astin’s - the sole agent to arrange a viewing.
