The property consists of a very charming, detached period cottage with off street parking and a delightful, south and west-facing garden. Constructed of stone under a pantile roof it occupies a central position and is located within the Hovingham Conservation Area. Croft Burn is an attractive property which is thought to date back over 200 years and has been sympathetically extended at the rear to provide a conservatory and dining room with bedroom above.
The majority of windows are the original Yorkshire sliding sashes, which enhance the intrinsic character of the cottage and central heating is provided by a recently installed wood pellet boiler. In brief the accommodation, which amounts to approximately 1,500 ft2 comprises: entrance lobby, study, sitting room, kitchen, dining room, conservatory, kitchen and pantry. To the first floor there are a total of three double bedrooms and a house bathroom. The principal bedroom at the rear of the house benefits from a large en-suite cloakroom/dressing room. Over the front door are two dates stones, one inscribed ‘G.R.M 1706’ and the other ‘W.C.W 1893’, which may relate to the point at which the Victorian kitchen extension was added.
The cottage occupies a prominent position on the corner of High Street and Mossburn Drive and benefits from good-sized gardens which enjoy very pleasant south and westerly aspects and a high degree of privacy. There is room to park alongside the cottage and a stone and pantile barn provides excellent storage and is open onto the garden.
