SELLER INSIGHT The privacy and position of the property struck us immediately,” say the current owners of Apartment 10 on Nickols Lane, Spofforth Hall, “and we loved the idea of living in a secluded Hall with so much history.”We also appreciated the cosiness of the apartment whilst also loving the generosity of the living space” The property forms part of a prestigious development of apartments and mews houses at Georgian Mansion, Spofforth Hall, stunningly converted by Country & Metropolitan Homes. With three bedrooms and spacious, open plan living accommodation, this sizeable first floor apartment makes the most of its location, with the village of Spofforth within walking distance. The property sits within generous, well kept communal grounds, complete with picnic tables, barbecue area, and 5 acres of gardens to roam. “Expansive lawns stretch out between copses of green trees to provide a feeling of space and openness,” the owners say. The location also has much to offer, the property being set in Spofforth, a historic village centred around the ruins of Spofforth Castle, with connections to the English Civil War. “We have excellent local amenities, too” say the owners, “with Spofforth village and corner shop only half a mile away. Spofforth village itself has a very active social community which revolves around the village hall and cricket club. There are also two local pubs both within 15 minutes’ walk. Meanwhile, the market town of Wetherby is 3 miles to the south and the spa town of Harrogate is 7 miles away.

Intercity rail services run from York and Leeds to London’s Kings Cross.” “After living in the apartment for 6 years we spent 12 months looking for somewhere else to move to. After much searching, we decided in the end that we love living in this community so much that we literally moved 50 yards away, with a beautiful outlook over the Hall’s gardens.” “The lounge is our favourite room. With its open plan layout, it feels as though it wraps itself around you, especially with the design of the ceiling and fireplace.” “Special events at Spofforth Hall that are held on a regular basis include community bonfire events, summer barbecues in the gardens, and drinks parties in the reception area of the Hall.” “There are 5 acres of gardens for the use of all residents at Spofforth Hall, which also includes picnic tables for use during summer.
