IT MAY seem like an odd attribute to highlight – that The Smithy is the perfect lock up and leave property for those who work away or like to travel on a whim – but it certainly is that...or a great home for those who want to stay put!

Located just between Low and High Green in Catterick Village – perfectly placed for accessing transport links throughout the region – The Smithy is a stylish low-maintenance home and garden which effortlessly combines features such as vaulted beamed ceilings and arched windows from its previous incarnation as a barn with high spec contemporary style.

A welcoming reception hall opens into two spacious ground floor rooms: the light and airy dual aspect living room with oak

flooring and a feature stone chimney breast with a Jotul gas stove set in a stone hearth, plus the open-plan dining kitchen. A large dual aspect room this is divided into a dining area with arched windows and oak flooring, and the kitchen with slate flooring, bespoke oak and granite units and a Rangemaster range-style cooker. There are also French doors opening out to the courtyard garden. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

The main galleried landing splits off in two directions, with the the family bathroom and three bedrooms to one side and the master bedroom suite to the other. An extremely spacious room, this has vaulted and beamed ceiling, shuttered windows and an en-suite shower room. Two of the three bedrooms are doubles, while the third is currently used as a study. All of the upstairs rooms have exposed ceiling beams which have been cleverly incorporated into their design.

The Smithy occupies a corner position in a courtyard development of similar properties. It has an an attached single garage plus an adjacent parking space, a superbly laid out courtyard garden accessed from French doors in the kitchen and a main garden laid mainly with stone flags which is home to raised brick flower beds.

The property – which benefits from a smart phone operated Hive Heating System – is on the market at offers in the region of £525,000.
