WHILE the boast that 'attention has been paid to even the smallest of details' may be overused in property brochures, there are times when it perfectly sums up a home...and so it is in the case of Highfield Lodge.

Much enhanced by the current owners, the property boasts a wealth of spacious, well planned and beautifully presented accommodation, but what sets it apart from so many other stunning homes is the way it has been skilfully designed to maximise the exceptional views over its gardens and grounds then towards the White Horse and Hambleton Hills.

Arranged over two floors, the ground floor accommodation comprises a spectacular galleried reception hall, sitting room, utility room, cloakroom, study, family room and an enormous open-plan living kitchen (with walk-in pantry) and dining room with a wall of almost floor to ceiling windows which allow light to flood in and offer magnificent views. The main everyday living rooms lie to the rear, with both the dining room and family room having French doors to the garden.

Upstairs are the family bathroom, a separate shower room and five double bedrooms, one of which is the master suite which includes a dressing room and large en-suite bathroom and has double doors to a balcony.

Highfield Lodge's large detached double garage has useful ancillary accommodation above. As this has high speed fibre broadband, a dedicated phone line and a shower room it would be ideal as an office, but would also make a perfect guest suite.

The professionally landscaped gardens and grounds extend to approximately two acres and include a large patio perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining, a large children’s play area, a meadow and sweeping lawned areas which border the village cricket pitch and neighbouring farmland.

Highfield Lodge – in the small village of Rainton, near Ripon – is on the market at a guide price of £1,175m.
