LOCATION The property is located at the end of a private lane on the outskirts of Kirk Hammerton and Cattal. As such it benefits from great transport links including the railway stations in both villages giving access to Harrogate and York and the East Coast Mainline to London Kings Cross and also the motorway network. Therefore the property is perfect for those needing to commute.
The villages locally are a short drive away and provide a range of amenities including local shops, public houses, restaurant, garage and primary schools at Green Hammerton and Kirk Hammerton. 

DESCRIPTION The Coach House is a cleverly designed conversion of a Barn which is one of only 6 properties located on this gated development. Converted from farm buildings a couple of years ago, the property offers delightful modern accommodation perfect for those wishing to walk straight into their ready made dream home. The owners have left no stone unturned in the construction and have combined clever interior design with a traditional feel.

The additional space in the annexe further enhances the property and offers the potential purchaser the option of additional living/bedroom accommodation or alternatively the option of being able to work from home.
