THE epitome of elegance, Swan House is a grade II listed property that has it all – an abundance of superb accommodation, period features and a location that's hard to beat. It also has an interesting history.

Swan House was originally built in 1815 as a lodging house for Jonathan Shult, the then proprietor of the adjacent Swan Inn, so it could be used as both a residence for him and also for lodging very important guests.

In more recent years the current owners have completely restored and renovated the property, creating an exceptional family house whilst skilfully retaining some lovely features reminiscent of the Georgian era.

The spacious accommodation is arranged over three floors, with rooms not only being beautifully-proportioned with high ceilings, but also flooded with natural light thanks to the shuttered sash windows throughout.

Centred around the ground floor central reception hall which is home to a stunning staircase and marble floor, are the sitting room,drawing room which opens via double doors into the study, a cloakroom, utility room and open-plan dining room and beautiful fully fitted breakfast kitchen with a central island breakfast bar for informal dining.

Off the first floor landing is the impressive master bedroom with dressing room and a large en-suite bathroom, guest bedroom with an en-suite shower room together and a third double bedroom also with an en-suite bathroom.

Upstairs again are a further three double bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities, plus a family room and a galley kitchen. This floor would be perfect for use as guest accommodation, a teenager’s suite or a large home office facility.

Swan House has a large block paved driveway which provides ample parking as well as a detached double garage.

Its beautiful gardens to three sides of the property feature sweeping lawns and a magnificent copper beech tree together with well established hedging to the boundaries.

Swan House, which lies in the fashionable Low Harrogate area close to the town's Valley Gardens and the cosmopolitan chic of the Montpellier Quarter, is on the market at a guide price of £2.5m.
