BUILT in 2016, Hightrees is without doubt a contemporary home, yet there is a distinct air of old-world elegance about its luxurious interiors which is sure to appeal.

In fact from the moment they enter the property's electric gates and approach Hightrees along its lengthy driveway and over an ornate bridge, visitors will find plenty to appeal and impress.

Hightrees' spacious and light-filled reception hall with feature fireplace provides access to the rest of the well-planned ground floor accommodation which comprises a formal sitting room with direct access to the gardens, a snug/study, a shower room, utility room, a boot room leading to the attached garage and, at its heart, a stunning open-plan living kitchen with bespoke cabinetry by Grove House Interiors, a large island/breakfast bar, ample space for a dining table, a separate seating area and sliding doors to the gardens.

To the first floor are the two family bathrooms and five bedrooms, including the master suite comprising a spacious bedroom, fully fitted dressing room and luxurious en-suite bathroom. A highlight of this room is its large balcony with far-reaching views beyond a glass balustrade.

Upstairs again is a sizeable games room which could be used as a further reception room, if required, plus a further bedroom and bathroom.

Above the triple garage is a fantastic home gym with separate shower room.

Hightrees' mature landscaped gardens and grounds extend to approximately 2.46 acres in total and bordering open countryside, offering wonderful views. They include a pretty wildflower meadow with all‐weather tennis court, summer house and pond, a footbridge over the beck to the generous front lawn and the rear garden where there is a sunken paved sun terrace directly off the kitchen and sitting room with gas fire pit and plenty of space for entertaining. To the very rear of the south-facing plot is a vegetable garden screened by mature planting.

Hightrees has been constructed to exacting standards and with efficiency in mind. To this end it has underfloor heating throughout – with the exception of the gym above the garaging – as well as air source heating with a heat recovery system and rainwater harvesting, all of which help to create an energy efficiency rating of B.

Hightrees, which is set on the edge of the popular village of Littlethorpe, near Ripon, is on the market at a guide price of £1,995m.
