elcome to Westwood House – a beautiful family home where those you love the most can grow and thrive.

Drive into the pretty North Yorkshire village of Hornby and this prominent ivy-clad property overlooking the village green is sure to grab your attention, as the current owners will testify. They came to view another property in the village but had their hearts stolen by this stunning home which they admit took their breath away. Not even knowing if the house was for sale and fearing “it was out of their league�, they made enquiries and then an offer. Fifteen years later the couple's children have grown up and moved on, meaning it is now time for a new family to build their lives in this wonderful property.

ornby is a picturesque, quiet village that offers an idyllic way of family life. From the garden gate, there are nu-

merous scenic walks through beautiful open countryside available. In the surrounding villages of Great Smeaton, the Cowtons, West Rounton and Appleton Wiske you will find traditional village pubs serving excellent locally-sourced food and drink. Community events are held regularly and there is a lively social scene for those wanting to get involved. Travel a little further to the east and you will come across the vibrant town of Yarm with its cobbled high street, boutique shops and trendy nightlife. To the south is the county town of Northallerton, which features a good mix of well-known names and quality independents on its high street. A short drive away are the stunning North York Moors, while the recently upgraded A1(M) to the west and A19 to the east mean you can be in Teesside within half an hour, and Leeds or Newcastle within the hour by car, or London in just over two hours if you catch the train from Darlington or Northallerton.


estwood House is a home to be proud of. The current owners say they regularly meet people who will remark

that they had wondered who was lucky enough to live there, while visitors to the property often comment on how welcoming the house feels and how it has a positive vibe. The owners are sad to be leaving what has been a happy and safe family home for them, but they will leave knowing that another family will soon be calling it their home and building their lives within its walls.
