IT MAY well sound cliched to say Lane House, an imposing property constructed of traditional red brick Flemish bond brickwork in 1694, is a wonderful marriage of original features, the vendors' personal taste and the contemporary conveniences today's buyers expect, but there's simply no better way to describe this unique home.

A grade II listed property, Lane House has a wealth of generously-proportioned accommodation arranged over three floors.

Briefly, this comprises a reception hall; dining room with open fire; study with wood-burning stove; spacious sitting room with wood-burning stove and French doors out to the terrace and garden beyond; breakfast kitchen with fitted cupboards, integral appliances, a central island and French doors out to a pretty courtyard; a cloakroom with shower and a boot room. Tanked cellars which are divided into three rooms – including one currently used as a wine cellar – offer an abundance of storage space.

On the first floor are the family bathroom and three double bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes, then upstairs again is a large bathroom and three further double bedrooms, all with beamed vaulted ceilings.

A particular feature of Lane House is its extensive and beautifully-maintained gardens. Laid mainly to lawn these include mature trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants and established evergreen hedging which, along with the red brick wall to the front, provides privacy.

Vehicular access via double gates leads to ample off-street parking with a garage and workshop beyond that. In addition there is a well‐stocked pond, a greenhouse, raised beds, five former pig sheds which are ideal for storage, a lovely courtyard ideal for alfresco dining and a south-facing formal terrace overlooking the lawn.

Lane House occupies a prominent position in the heart of the popular village of Burneston, near Bedale, and is on the market at £650,000.
