Summary The Old Farmhouse is a 17th century detached family home situated on a deceptively spacious plot in Aiskew, a popular village on the outskirts of Bedale.
The property offers an abundance of charm and character, alongside period features throughout, including original beams to the ceilings and a reconditioned 1957 AGA. The property has the benefit of a gas fired central heating system and UPVC double glazing throughout.
Full planning has been granted to create a garage within the parking area to the front of the property and a covered entrance porch.

To the left hand side lies the living room, offering a dual aspect to the front and side with beams to the ceiling. The room is heated by a multi fuel burning stove, set into an attractive brick inglenook fire place with stone hearth.
To the right of the entrance hall lies the spacious dining kitchen, offering a front aspect view. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke handmade wooden kitchen, offering a good range of base units, topped with solid Oak work surfaces. The floor is tiled, as are the walls to splash back areas, heat and cooking is offered by a gas fired reconditioned AGA. There is an island unit with an inset Belfast sink and there is ample space for a dining table and chairs. There is an original walk-in pantry cupboard which is shelved for additional storage.

Externally The property is approached by a private road which turns almost immediately into a large tarmac driveway. This area provides ample off road parking for numerous vehicles. Planning has been granted which is now in perpetuity for a garage to be built on the left gable end of the property adjacent to the main road.
The garden extends to the side of the property where it would be possible to create space to park a caravan or a motor home. There is a gated access which leads to gravelled area which currently has a greenhouse. Beyond this section the garden opens into the rear patio area which is part flagged and part gravelled for ease of maintenance. The garden is enclosed by a brick wall and panelled fencing, there are stocked borders and two garden sheds.
