The sale includes land set in about 50 acres of productive pasture land, woodland and game cover that provides for a private family shoot with Bothy and two detached income producing houses, the Brew House and Farm House sat within the grounds of the estate.

Monks Folly is surprisingly not listed, however its charm and character is evident as soon as you arrive. There are two private courtyards providing ample parking and garaging for 5 cars with a detached double garage and an integral triple garage with remotely controlled opening doors.

Monks Folly offers an entrance porch, entrance hall, guest cloaks/wc, wine store, an elegant galleried dining hall with exposed timbers, a lounge with feature stone fireplace, a spacious living family kitchen with snug area and gas living flame stove, and a dining area with double opening patio doors to a stunning lawn with a Rondavel (African hut) to enjoy the spectacular far reaching views from. The fitted kitchen features a full Aga, double sink and useful pantry. The ground floor offers a study, utility room and ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room.

A split staircase from the galleried hall leads to the first floor Master bedroom with a spacious dressing room that links to a large bathroom with shower. There is a separate wc and a most useful linked utility room with kitchen facilities and washing machine plus hot water cylinder making it a perfect drying/airing room.

The spilt staircase leads to two further double bedrooms that share a luxury shower room. The largest bedroom has a wide spiral staircase that leads down to a lounge with kitchen area and private ground floor approach making it an ideal self-contained suite for teenagers or dependant relatives.

The attached barn (the Malt Kiln Barn) offers two floors of additional space that can create a further 1750 sq ft, plus a further attached Bothy totalling 625 sq ft, both benefitting from planning permission to convert into further living accommodation to suit your own individual requirements. The Bothy is currently used as the meet area for the family shoot with a log burning stove and kitchen facilities.

There are two detached houses that can provide valuable income of circa £47,000 per annum let on assured short-term tenancies. The 4 bedroom Brew House becomes available in January 2021 for occupancy providing a home if you wanted to alter Monks Folly and its attached Malt Kiln Barn and Bothy.

The 3 bedroom Farmhouse, with the benefit of planning permission granted for a further 2 bedrooms and further ground floor living accommodation, is let until July 2021 on an AST.

The commanding view to the rear is one of the finest in the Harrogate area. It is a stunning far reaching countryside view that is over your own land and woodland.
