Main Street, Moor Monkton
A most attractive brick built former chapel offering flexible accommodation arranged over two floors. The chapel retains numerous original features including the attractive stained windows, which have been completely refurbished and offer a lot of light into the house. There are numerous stones denoting who laid them and the date stone over the front door stating 1886. The site gets a mention in The Doomsday Book of 1086, but the existing building was built on the site 800 years thereafter. The doors throughout the house have been made from the original pews giving an authentic link to its past.
The accommodation which benefits from electric heating, briefly comprises: Entrance porch, dining kitchen, sitting room, family room, bathroom, utility and wc. On the first floor are four bedrooms, one with an en-suite wc and basin. The chapel is centrally situated on its plot, with pretty courtyard gardens surrounding the house enabling the sun worshipper to follow the sun around the house! There is a very useful store to the rear and further covered storage for fuel in addition to the large garage.
The situation within the village is idyllic with far reaching countryside views to the rear overlooking the fields which lead to the river.
Moor Monkton is a pretty village, conveniently situated off the A59 York to Harrogate Road and is approximately seven miles from York and sixteen miles from Harrogate. The location is particularly peaceful as it is a "no through village" and as such the only traffic is created by the residents. The location is ideal for the commuter as easy access can be gained to the larger cities within the area by both road and rail with the railway station at Nether Poppleton on the Leeds to York line. Also within close proximity is the A1(M), linking with the region's motorway network.
Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Heating is via electric heaters and drainage is to a septic tank, which is emptied annually by Harrogate Borough Council and is included within the Council Tax paid.
