The Thatched Cottage is a beautifully extended former long house with an additional one bedroom annexe. It is situated in the picturesque rural village of Carlton Huswaithe, just a short distance from the Hambelton Hills.
The grade II* listed property, which is thought to date from the 16th century, has a reed thatched roof and merits a mention in Pevsner’s - The Buildings of England.
The roof was re-thatched with water reed in 2000 and has a life expectancy of 60 years.
Inside, there are many period features, including oak beams and panelling. The house has a kitchen, utility room, drawing room, dining room, garden room, cloakroom, study, three bedrooms, a dressing room and two bathrooms. The cottage annexe generates an income as a rental property. Outside, there is a five-car garage and gardens.
Carlton Husthwaite is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just to the east of the A19 and has a pub/restaurant, The Carlton Inn. There is quick access to both Easingwold and Thirsk and York is also in easy travelling distance.
