Lady Cross comes onto the market after 26 years as our Vendors have decided to downsize. Rarely does a property of this quality come onto the market.
The property is pleasantly situated between the villages of Carlton-in-Cleveland and Hutton Rudby. Both villages are popular and attractive with easy access onto the A172 and A19. It is therefore well placed in relation to the local towns of Stokesley and Northallerton, and within reasonable commuting distance to Teesside. The property is well placed and nicely set back from the minor road leading from the A172 to Hutton Rudby.
Lady Cross is a beautiful detached period house comprising 3,116 sq ft of accommodation including garage and outbuildings. The property which dates from circa 1890 was acquired by the present owners in 1992. It has been superbly maintained and sympathetically extended to high standards. An internal inspection is recommended to appreciate the quality of this outstanding family home.
The property is approached via a partly shared private drive and there is ample parking for several vehicles.
All reception rooms lead off the Entrance Hall. These include a breakfast kitchen, cloakroom, family room, dining room and formal living room. There is a wealth of features throughout the property including open fireplaces, coving and ceiling roses.
On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms, one with an En-suite with underfloor heating and a first-class family bathroom. On the second floor there is another bedroom with wash hand basin. There is generous storage throughout the property to include part boarded roof space with access ladder.
The gardens and grounds form a particularly attractive feature to this property. Established hedges provide a high degree of privacy to the mainly south facing gardens. There is an extensive paved terrace area with formal rose beds. Lawns to three sides and well stocked borders with mature specimen trees and shrubs, including fruit trees and rhododendrons.
A feature is a glass verandah with remote control dimmable lighting next to a pergola with a stunning wisteria. There is almost year round interest to the garden which also features natural dry stone walling.
The property benefits from a grass paddock extending to 1.80 acres approx.
There is a large detached double garage with good storage and electric doors, together with a large Alton lean-to greenhouse and timber garden / tractor shed.
Close to the house is a detached brick built building comprising saddle room with hot and cold water and oil fired boiler together with a three section store for coal, logs and general garden equipment.
