Ryedale House is situated in the heart of the popular, historic market town of Helmsley, just south of the market square.
Helmsley is a fabulous town with a weekly market and an excellent selection of independent, local shops including clothes stores, a doctor’s surgery, delicatessens, restaurants, and hotels. In addition there is an arts centre showing films and plays, as well as hosting exhibitions and concerts.
The town lies on the fringes of the North York Moors National Park and Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding National Beauty, and boasts considerable architectural character. York is just 24 miles to the south and the A1(M) is 22 miles to the west. Direct trains to London run regularly from Thirsk (14 miles) and York, some in under 2 hours.
Helmsley has a primary school, and is in the catchment for Ryedale schools, an “Outstanding” secondary school (Ofsted 2012). Ampleforth College is 4 miles away.
About this property
On entering the town over Helmsley Bridge, the property is unmissable with its grand, three storey, Georgian façade, with steps leading to the front entrance encased by Tuscan Columns. Ryedale House is arguably the most impressive and attractive residential property in the town centre.
The current owner has refurbished much of the house, creating stylish and well planned interiors. The entrance hall leads to the beautifully proportioned drawing room and sitting room which opens onto the dining room. The recently refurbished kitchen dining room overlooks the garden, with French doors onto a generous, paved terrace.
The first and second floors offer 6 generous double bedrooms, a single, and four bathrooms. The master bedroom, with a dressing room and en suite, is east facing over the pretty garden and has planning to add a new en suite bathroom above the kitchen.
There is a significant back garden with beautifully designed, and stocked borders, and paved terraces ideal for outside entertaining. Opposite the property there are two garages.
