Features and Description

  • Currently run as a boutique guesthouse

Offering for sale this stunning substantial Victorian property in all some 0.8 acres on a elevated position close to the heart of the village of Grosmont. It has well-established gardens as well as two cottages that overlook the historic Grosmont Railway Station, the steam train headquarters of the North York Moors heritage railway. This family house offers versatile accommodation over three floors with cottages that could be retained as guest accommodation or for holiday lets. The property has previously been run as a successful boutique country guest house.

Grosmont House is believed to date from 1860. It was originally built for the owner of the local brickworks as a gentleman’s residence and is the principal house in the village. The house is rendered with stone quoins and has a steeply pitched slate roof with tall chimney stacks. An elegant bay window and tall reception room window enjoy a western outlook across the iconic heritage railway. The house has been renovated and refurbished in recent years and the contemporary interiors sit well alongside the property’s inherent period character with high ceilings, cornicing, the original staircase, hallway arches, deep sash windows, stained glass, original floor tiles, fine fireplaces and panelled doors, exposed beams and roof trusses.

The central reception hall gives access to the three reception rooms: the drawing room with its deep bay window, wood-burning stove and French doors opens to the gardens and connects to the conservatory; the sitting room with its square bay and fireplace; and, most impressively, the principal reception room which is part panelled with oak flooring and underfloor heating, an open fireplace housed in a magnificent stone fireplace and French doors to the courtyard. This room is partly double-height with a modern bespoke staircase and glass balustrade that continues to the galleried landing. The recently fitted kitchen has a back door that opens south onto the garden; it has fitted units, integrated appliances, a Butler sink and a large walk-in pantry; alongside is a breakfast room with a period fireplace and bread oven. The ground floor also includes a useful wet room, laundry room and separate wc.

The bedrooms are arranged over the first and second floors. Six have en suite bathrooms with waterfall showers and there is a generous four-piece family bathroom.

The self-contained apartment is arranged over two floors and is, in part, double height, with an elegant west facing arched window. It has its own entrance and comprises a living area, kitchen, bedroom with en suite bathroom.

Cottages - There are two period cottages within the grounds, converted from the former stable block. They are largely concealed from the main house and enjoy an outlook over the heritage railway station and passing steam trains. Mallard Cottage is a two-bedroom cottage and Three Trees Cottage is a one-bedroom cottage. Both are well appointed, have their own outside space and parking space outside. They would both make ideal holiday lets.

Outside - A lane from Front Street in the heart of the village meets the private drive. This sweeps around to the back of the house providing a generous gravelled parking and turning area that continues to further hardstanding in front of the cottages and garages. The entire plot is over three-quarters of an acre and includes well-established gardens that surround the house, with the main area of lawn extending behind and a number of fine trees on its border. There is also a paved terrace.

Environs - Whitby 7 miles, Pickering 16 miles, Scarborough 21 miles, York 42 miles. Grosmont is one of the finest village in the Esk Valley within the North York Moors National Park. It has a range of amenities within walking distance of the house including cafés, pub, art gallery, shops and the heritage railway station on the Esk Valley Line running between Middlesbrough and Whitby. From the doorstep are many superb country walks and the village lies on the Coast to Coast national path. The historic town of Whitby is a fifteen minute drive away over the Moors.
