This stunning Grade II Listed building is situated perpendicular to the road, surrounded by countryside views making it the epitome of rural living but with the added benefit of local amenities on your doorstep.

There is plenty of parking, including an electric charging point, a one -bedroom annexe and well-appointed gardens and croft stretching to an acre.

Make your way past the Silver Birch that stands proudly on the lawn to one side of the wide staircase leading to the front door of Old Hall, to the other side sits a patio ideal for summer BBQS.

Step under the porchway, where umbrellas can be left and open the door into the impressive entrance hallway. A room in itself where small cupboard doors hide original storage nooks, walls adorned with hooks give plenty of hanging space and there are still areas for boots to be kicked off onto the Yorkshire flagstones after a busy day in the garden.

Take the latched door to the right into the downstairs WC to refresh before making your way to the left of the entrance way into the hub of the home.

Flagstones continue seamlessly into the wow-factor dining-kitchen. Neutrally decorated and with contemporary cabinets and worksurfaces ensuring not to take away from the period features in the mullion windows that give beautiful views to the garden, the ceiling complete with the original beams and the exposed stonework surrounding the doorways that lead to the rest of the house. The Aga makes an incredible focal point set in the natural stone fireplace.

There is bountiful storage in the kitchen but if you are looking for more places to put things then look no further than the adjacent room. Once a small utility room and now an immaculate second kitchen!

The reds and browns of the ceramic floor tiles lead to the backdoor making it effortless to hang the clothes out after washing them in the second kitchen space. The room boasts a huge double fridge-freezer as well as modern upper and lower cabinets housing the additional storage you might need as well as built-in oven and microwave. Christmases with the whole family will certainly be a breeze with so much preparation and cooking space.

Spy the cupboard to the left that could continue as pantry storage or make the ideal place for the hoover and ironing board.

Cross the hallway and up three stone steps to a lovely snug room. Children can marvel at having their own space with a tv and toy room. Notice the low windows complete with deep stone sills, giving garden views, offering places to display ornaments or to sit and admire the countryside scenery.

The log burner with original stone surround, oak beams and ornate built-in cupboard makes this room cosy and comfortable.

Return to the kitchen and go through the archway that leads to a truly incredible lounge. Period features continue with exposed beams, ornate oak panelling and the true showstopper of the home - the fireplace. A substantial stone surround that runs almost the full extent of one wall and houses a contemporary log burner with glazed front that allows for the most pleasant and knockout scene.

Hunker down in front of the fire during the colder months and make the most of this peaceful retreat.

Through the door to the left, beside the fire, find another porchway and external door with more areas to stash coats and shoes away, then adjacent to this is another living room. Admire the log burner, exposed stone and beams in this versatile space, currently used as an office, that could be used as a separate dining room. If you continue through the room, you will find a corridor taking you to the kitchen giving the home a really nice and easy flow.

The corridor has another door leading into the main lounge as well as the staircase leading up to the first floor and the bedrooms.

Ascend the staircase to find six really good-sized bedroom all with uninterrupted views overlooking the garden and beautiful Yorkshire countryside.

The period features continue upstairs with glimpses of exposed beams, stone fireplaces as well as Georgian windows and traditional shutters all taking pride of place in contemporary decorated bedrooms. The home has been carefully modernised making sure that nothing takes away from the homes origins instead allowing everything to blend seamlessly together.

Bedroom one can be found immediately to your left and is a haven to escape to with over-stairs cupboard and lovely en-suite shower room. Freshen up after a busy day at work before a peaceful night's sleep.

Take two steps up into bedroom two, with feature fireplace standing proud and a door to the side of the room taking you across a second landing and into a classic and elegant shower room.

Retrace your steps to the hallway which takes you to a further three bedrooms to the left-hand side, neutral carpets harmonizing the spaces as you go from room to room. The three bedrooms are spacious, can house a double bed, freestanding furniture and captures stunning aspects of the village and beyond.

Space and storage are abundant at Old Hall and the upstairs is no different with cupboards down one side of the hallway and a long room to the right offering the potential of being used as a teenage hangout or study.

The final room is the family bathroom. Central to the bedrooms and filled with period features in the built-in storage and window nooks with shutters set around a separate shower and bath. Fill the bath to the brim and let your troubles drift away.

Garden and Grounds

The one acre of gardens and grounds at Old Hall offers a flexible space ready for you to enjoy but also boasting areas with the potential for you to alter and make your own.

To the driveway side of the home, high Yorkshire drystone walling borders the front patio to the road, giving privacy for entertaining in the summer months. Trees provide dappled shade to the lawns and mature shrubs that flank the main door create a countryside cottage feel to the grand home's façade.

Starting the journey to the left-hand side of driveway, discover a workshop with ideal storage for gardening equipment and sporting goods easily on hand for outdoor adventures, all to the back of the annexe.

Make your way to the top of the garden via the steps in the low drystone walls, adorned with moss and cascading shrubbery creating a tiered space that is a haven for birds and wildlife. Each level provides something different but is carefully bordered with lush greens, reds and burgundies of bushes and trees ensuring a seamless transition.

The lower forms a flat lawn that extends from the front of the home and is where children could have play equipment. To the rear find a sloping field where a greenhouse sits and chickens scratch through the grass looking for grubs. Here, the current owner has had planning permission approved to carve out a terrace for seating and alfresco dining. This is where you can be inspired and devise your own perfect outdoor entertaining place.

A well-tended lawn, edged with Yorkshire sandstone, sweeps around the rear of the home to the original front door where the Wisteria adorns the walls and hedging provides a secluded setting to sit and read on the patio.

From this view of the house, you can see the full extent of the inclined field, that could make an addition to the current garden or a location for animals to call home.

Old Hall is filled with character and charm, delivering peaceful family living surrounded by the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales.

Annexe

Step through the glazed door of the archway and into the open-plan living-dining-kitchen of the annexe. Once a garage, it has recently been converted into a fully independent one bedroom detached dwelling, enabling the purchaser of Old Hall to potentially claim stamp duty multi-dwelling relief.

It is a versatile space that is ideal for visiting guests, as a rental income or as extended accommodation for the main house. It could also work as an office, gym or business potential as clients would be able to come and go without causing any disturbance to the main home.

On the ground floor, large flagstones tiles line the floor of the open plan living space, currently used as a bedroom but designed to make a lovely lounge with underfloor heating and plenty of space for a dining area, if needed. Light floods the space through dual aspect long glazed windows giving you lovely views over the driveway to the pretty front garden.

Crisp white upper and lower cabinetry house built-in hob, cooker, fridge and microwave and provide ample storage for all the essentials. Room for three chairs at the breakfast bar makes for a good use of space and adds to a really nice cohesivity throughout the living area.

The large flooring tiles continue into the luxury shower room found through the door on the left.

Make your way upstairs to the bedroom that is set into the eaves. Natural light cascades into the room from the skylights creating a haven to watch the clouds roll by in this peaceful place. Discover the door into the second room upstairs that is ready to convert and is currently used for storage.
