A substantial detached family home set in extensive grounds in the village of Old Scriven

Slingsby Lodge is an outstanding detached property, with extensive accommodation, including six bedrooms, set in approximately 2.7 acres in this pretty village of Old Scriven. The property comprises more than 4,000 square feet of accommodation in all, with four reception rooms, while outside, the house is surrounded by attractive gardens and substantial grounds.

A grand reception hall greets you upon entering the property, with double doors to the left leading to the large music room. This expansive living space features a double-height woodpanelled ceiling, overlooked by a balcony from the first floor, plus a double aspect flooding the room with natural light. The welcoming reception room features a fireplace and two sets of sliding glass doors with a south-facing aspect, opening onto the attractive gardens.

There is a well-equipped open plan dining kitchen, with integrated appliances and white storage units to base and wall level, plus a breakfast area and a separate formal dining room.

Four double bedrooms are found on the ground floor, with two benefitting from en-suite bathrooms/shower rooms. Upstairs there are a further two bedrooms, one of which is en-suite. The property includes two family bathrooms, one on the ground floor, and one on the second floor.


The property is accessed through wrought iron gates, which open onto a paved driveway. The driveway opens up into a parking area at the front of the property, providing access to the integrated double garage. There is also a separate entrance to the property via a five-bar wooden gate, which opens onto further parking space and provides access to the large paddock adjoining the property. The house is surrounded by pleasant gardens, with a south-facing lawn and a paved and gravelled courtyard area, plus a wooded area to the north of the house.


The property is located in the village of Old Scriven, on the edge of the town of Knaresborough and four miles from the centre of historic and popular Harrogate. The village is centred around its charming village green, while local amenities are easily accessible in Knaresborough – which has a good choice of shopping and supermarkets. Harrogate has a wider variety of shopping, plus an array of excellent leisure facilities, including the superb Harrogate Golf Club, and cultural facilities, including cinemas, theatres and galleries. Outstanding-rated schooling in the area is available at Meadowside Community Primary in Knaresborough, St. Robert’s in Harrogate, and for secondary, King James.


Head out of Harrogate on the Knaresborough Road (A59). After two and a half miles, reaching traffic lights in Knaresborough, continue straight ahead onto Boroughbridge Road, and after a quarter of a mile, turn left onto Scriven Road. At the roundabout, take the first exit onto Greengate Lane and then turn left to pass the village green. Continue for just less than a quarter of a mile, and you will find the entrance to the property on your right-hand side.
