A unique 5-bedroom detached country residence, located in a private woodland setting with panoramic

Low House was designed and built in 2002 by C.K. Batchelor and has been fitted and maintained to an exceptional standard. As such the property has never been offered for sale in its current form, with a contemporary styling and arranged over two floors, the living accommodation extends to some 4,008 sq.\ft. as one would expect with a dwelling of this stature.

A generous split level central hallway gives an immediate sense of space into this charming family home. The drawing room to the front has excellent proportions with a wood burning stove and feature bay window that enjoys far reaching countryside views. The adjoining dining room could also be used as a spacious family room as an alternative to its present use with the large living dining kitchen arguably being the central room of the house and recently refitted by Grove House Interiors. The kitchen is complimented by a range of luxury fitted appliances.

The ground floor accommodation completes with a useful utility room and two separate cloakrooms. Located off the utility room, a staircase leads to a separate guest suite above the garage. The ideal space for teenagers, dependent relatives or as enhanced studio accommodation.

Off the central hall a study sits at a half landing and benefits double doors that lead to a patio area. Continuing up to the central landing the master bedroom has extensive fitted wardrobes and a luxury en-suite bathroom. There is an additional guest bedroom with an en-suite shower room and two further double bedrooms, with a luxury house bathroom. A balcony to the front of the property leads off one of the double bedrooms and the central hallway.

The attention to detail throughout the property is perfectly illustrated by the large picture windows that maximise the south western aspect.

This property has 2.78 acres of land.


Low House is surrounded by a beautiful woodland and manicured gardens. There is a generous paved terrace with a number of paths leading to further terraced areas, strategically placed lawned areas, herbaceous borders and with a backdrop of woodland including a delightful bluebell carpet and extensive rhododendrons.


Low House is one of six houses situated at Barrowby Woods being a former religious retreat with an approach through a private gated entrance and a driveway that meanders through protected woodland to Low House and the remaining dwellings that are lucky enough to enjoy this enviable and exclusive setting that few know about.

The property enjoys uninterrupted peaceful views over Lower Wharfedale valley towards Otley Chevin, with Almscliffe Crag in the distance. This exclusive and private setting is widely regarded as one of the most exclusive villages in the region and situated to the south of Harrogate.

The region’s commercial centres are within commuting distance most notably Leeds, with Leeds Bradford airport some 20 minutes’ drive and connections further afield via the A1(M) motorway at Wetherby 15 minutes’ to the east.
