Heron’s Hill is an individual detached family house that is believed to have been built in 1964 and has been altered and extended to provide well-presented and versatile accommodation that could provide an annexe if needed, or just enjoyed as one family house. It also includes a fantastic living kitchen extension which was added by the current owners in 2011, creating a light and airy area to enjoy with picture windows and French doors framing the outlook over the river from the elevated position the property enjoys. The property is designed to take full advantage of its superb position with views down the gardens to the river below and open countryside beyond from the majority of the rooms.

It offers a wonderful lifestyle opportunity for those seeking a quite peaceful setting surrounded by glorious walks, open countryside and the direct access to the river with your own private jetty. Yet for those requiring quick road and rail access to the nearby commercial centres, it is positioned superbly with the A1(M) just a few miles away and rail access from either Kirk Hammerton or Cattal direct to mainline stations at York and Leeds. Leeds Bradford Airport is only 23 miles away.

The property is approached through an entrance vestibule which opens to the hall that leads to the sitting room with open fire and patio doors, a study and the large living kitchen with extensive base and wall units and a central island together with integrated appliances. There are two double bedrooms, a house bathroom and a second kitchen again with fitted units and a dining area off which opens to the garden room. There is also a utility and WC off. To the first floor, there are two staircases with the first leading to the principal bedroom suite which opens to a private balcony with wonderful views and an en-suite bathroom. The second staircase leads to two further double bedrooms and a bathroom.


The outside is a particular feature of the property and ideal for anyone who enjoys the peace and quiet with large gardens and grounds extending to around one acre and substantial river frontage with a private jetty. The property is approached through and in and out driveway with extensive gravelled parking together with a generous double garage and a timber barn that does require attention. There are lawned gardens to both the front and rear with a large terrace accessed directly from the house making a wonderful space to entertain.


The property is located approximately one mile outside of the village of Thorpe Underwoood and is accessed via a private road. It is surrounded via open countryside and enjoys wonderful walks to the Alice Hawthorn pub in Nun Monkton, The Aldwark Arms and Linton Lock which can also be accessed via the river. For those needing quick access to the surrounding towns and cities of Harrogate, York and Leeds, it is ideally positioned for both road and rail links. The surrounding villages provide a range of everyday facilities with more extensive amenities in Boroughbridge, Harrogate and York.


Directions Proceed into the village of Thorpe Underwood and just after Queen Ethelburga’s School, turn right in to a lane with a ‘No Through Road’ sign and continue along here for approximately 0.75 miles and the property will be found on the left hand side.
