Plum Tree Cottage is a delightful 4/5 bedroom property, with beautifully presented accommodation and a variety of charming period features alongside stylish contemporary fittings and a clean, neutral décor throughout. Elegant new sash windows were installed throughout the property in 2018.

On the ground floor, the main reception room is the 25ft drawing room, which provides a spacious, comfortable living space in which to relax or entertain. The room has a light and airy feel, with its triple aspect, large sash windows and French doors opening onto the gardens, exposed beams and an original open fireplace. The dining room also features exposed beams and a fireplace with French doors onto the rear gardens. The Jeremy Wood handmade kitchen, breakfast room, and utility room have units fitted with Miele integrated appliances.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three of which are doubles, including the principal bedroom with en-suite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe. Completing this floor is the family bathroom.

The annexe offers flexible separate accommodation, which could be used for guest accommodation, older relatives, as office or studio space, or as a rental property. The reception room welcomes plenty of natural light and features French doors opening onto the garden, as well as a stunning vaulted ceiling with exposed timber beams. It leads into an open-plan kitchen, a stylishly appointed shower room and bedroom 5/office.

The large stone barn offers significant potential for development, subject to the necessary consents.

The property is located in the charming and highly sought-after village of Whixley. Equidistant between the historic and popular city of York and spa town of Harrogate, Whixley occupies a superb location within easy reach of a fantastic range of amenities, while still situated in beautiful rolling countryside. The village itself has a village store, pub, church and local playing fields, while Knaresborough, a short drive away, provides all of the everyday amenities required, including several supermarkets. Extensive shopping, dining and entertainment options are available in York and Harrogate.

Nearby schooling includes the Green Hammerton Church of England Primary School and for secondary, King James's School in Knaresborough, as well as the independent Queen Ethelburga's College.

The A1(M) is just under 3 miles away, while the mainline station at York provides a fast and efficient service to London (1 hour 45 minutes to Kings Cross).

The property opens to the front onto Church Street via a 5-bar timber gate, which leads to a gravel driveway and private paved courtyard garden at the rear of the house. The annexe and the barn are also clustered around the courtyard as is another stone building currently used as a fuel store. Beyond the outbuildings there is an extensive private garden, with lawns separated by hedgerow into two distinct areas. The lawns are bordered by flowerbeds and established hedgerow, while the gardens also include several mature trees.
