A fine Georgian rectory with views of the North York Moors. Coach House with planning permission for ancillary dwelling. Excellent road and rail links and easy commuting to Teesside, Darlington, York and Harrogate<br><br><br><BR />Welbury House is a substantial family house situated beside the church in the popular commuting village of Welbury. Within the gardens there is a tennis court and ample space for a small paddock. The house has adjacent to it an attractive Coach House, which currently includes two stables, and has planning permission for conversion to a two bedroom annex. <BR /><BR />It is documented that a house has existed on the site since 1809, but the majority of this old rectory dates from the Georgian period. It is built of red brick under a part slate and part pantile roof. Welbury House is Listed Grade II and is well situated to maximise the views over the charming gardens towards the North York Moors.<BR /><BR />Internally, the accommodation at Welbury House is ideally suited for a large family with an excellent range of generous sized reception rooms on the ground floor. These include a sitting room and drawing room which span the front elevation and have views over the front gardens that can be enjoyed through the large sash windows which dominate the main façade. There is a separate impressive dining room with a door leading directly into the kitchen/breakfast room which faces east and west catching both the morning and evening sun.<BR /><BR />Beside the kitchen is a utility room, wine store and boot room with a staircase leading up to an office above. From the inner corridor, a door leads down to the cellar which is separated into two rooms. From the ground floor an elegant cantilever staircase rises to the landing from which the remaining rooms are accessed. The master bedroom is a particularly large room which faces east and overlooks the gardens and grounds, and has an en-suite bathroom. On the western side of the house is the guest bedroom, also with en-suite bathroom. There are three additional bedrooms, a family bathroom and dressing room on the first floor.<BR /><BR />The Coach House - Beside the parking area is a pretty red brick coach house under a pantiled roof which is a useful garage and storage building in its existing form. Incorporating two stables and a large open plan room on the ground floor with two storage rooms above, the Coach House benefits from planning permission for conversion to a two bedroom annex with a generous reception room.<BR /><br><br>Welbury House is accessed from the village lane through a pair of gates to a large parking area between the Coach House and the main house. The main lawns lie to the east and front of the house and are bounded by a variety of fine mature trees which include a superb copper beech, mature beech trees, oaks and an orchard. In the north eastern corner is a tennis court which requires updating. There is also a summerhouse and greenhouse.
