This elegant and distinctive house with its double bay windows and dressed stone mullions overlooks the large village green at West Burton. Access on foot from the green is through a small railed patio garden. The main door opens to a small vestibule which in turn leads to a large entrance hall that serves all the ground floor rooms.
To the front of the house are two large lounges; one with an open fire place, the other a flame effect electric fire but both with stylish hearths and surrounds, high ceilings and large panelled bay windows that view over the village Green. To the rear is a large, well equipped kitchen with dining area looking out onto the lawn and garden. An external door from the kitchen provides access to the garden, garage and fuel store.
Between the lounges and kitchen is a small cloakroom, with washbasin and toilet and a stairway with decorative balustrade rising to a landing that gives way to four bedrooms and a bathroom with bath, shower, washbasin and toilet.
Two of the bedrooms have double beds, one with en-suite shower room. The third bedroom has twin beds and the fourth to the rear of the house has a set of pine bunk beds. The three larger bedrooms at the front view out over the green, distant rooftops and beyond into Wensleydale.
There is a large garden to the side and rear of the house that can be reached on foot from the green through a door in the garden wall or by car into the double gated driveway leading to the garage.
From the beautiful Victorian floor tiles in the entrance, the lofty ceilings and deep skirting boards there is an air of style and space throughout. The imaginative use of colour as a backcloth to the fine furnishing and fitments make this accommodation of a high standard.

West Burton, acclaimed by many to be one of the most beautiful villages in England, rests snugly in a deep sheltered valley at the juncture of Walden Dale, Bishopdale and Wensleydale. Nearby, high fell sides rise steeply to form a spectacular setting to this most picturesque of dales villages, and on climbing can give unrivalled panoramas of the surrounding dales and distant views of the Vale of York and North York Moors.
The village surrounds an expansive green centred by an ancient market cross and, because of its position away from the main traffic routes, still offers traditional rural tranquillity. This is particularly true of the green where, here and there, small bench seats prompt social rendezvous and easy conversation.
It is served by a bus route and is ideally placed as a base for exploration of the dales and fells whether on foot or by car. There is no need, however, to travel for the basics in life as West Burton contains a pub, butchers shop and general store/tearoom.
