This Edwardian house has been lived in and loved by the same family for 35 years and is one of the most impressive properties in the sought-after village of Nun Monkton.

Owners are Owain and Angie Pugh are downsizing but they aren't going far. “This has been a fantastic family home but it is time to move somewhere smaller. We have found somewhere round the corner, which was important to us as we didn't want to leave this fantastic village. We have wonderful neighbours amd there is a great pub here,” says Mr Pugh, who adds: “Nun Monkton is brilliantly located with easy access to the A1.”
