Thimbleby House is an elegant period home which has been extensively and sympathetically renovated throughout by the current owners and now offers over 5,500 square feet of immaculately presented family accommodation arranged over two floors.
This excellent village property enjoys both formal and informal areas to the ground floor with an impressive central Reception Hall, with guest w/c off, providing access to the principal reception rooms including a dual aspect Drawing Room overlooking the formal gardens with ornate ceiling and cornice detail and feature open grate fireplace, Sitting Room with bay window to the front and inset living flame gas fire creating a focal point within the room, Study with oak flooring and gas wood burning effect stove and a cosy Snug.
A particular feature of the spacious and well planned ground floor accommodation is the large open plan Dining Kitchen area with bespoke hand painted cabinetry, quartz work surfaces, large central island in a contrasting colour with a solid walnut top and a gas fired Aga. The kitchen flows seamlessly into an adjoining sitting and dining area with three walls of floor to ceiling windows and French doors out to a paved terrace with the delightful gardens beyond.
A spacious Rear Family Hall provides day to day access to the house from a separate driveway and parking area in front of the attached garaging. Off this space is a separate Utility Room, walk in Larder, useful Butler’s Pantry, Boot Room and further w/c.
To the first floor the generous Principal Suite offers a large double bedroom overlooking the gardens with a stylish en suite, separate w/c and fitted wardrobes. There are five further double bedrooms, two with their own en suite facilities and a luxurious House Bathroom.

Thimbleby House is situated in the traditional heart of Hampsthwaite village, close to the historic church, in an enviable setting in Lower Nidderdale some 5 miles from Harrogate. There are extensive village facilities including a primary school, village shop and post office, doctor’s surgery and public house with a wide range of amenities available in central Harrogate. The commercial centres of West Yorkshire, in particular Leeds and Bradford, are within comfortable commuting distance.
