DIRECTIONS On reaching the village of Grewelthorpe, after the duck pond and just before the Crown Inn pub (on the right) take the first turning left up a hill (signposted to ‘Kirkby Malzeard’). At the next ‘T’ junction turn right (signposted ‘The Hutts’).
Take the left hand bend signposted Bramley and follow this road (Foulgate Nook Lane). The property is positioned on the right as the road begins to climb a gradient.
SITUATION Low Foulgate Farm and Anvil Cottage are situated outside the popular village of Grewelthorpe. A pretty village with duckpond, public house and excellent primary school. It also benefits from being in the catchment area for the high achieving Ripon Grammar School. The property itself is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and equestrians would love the abundance of bridleways within the unspoilt countryside. The rural location is not isolated and the market towns of Ripon and Masham with their wide array of amenities are a short drive not to mention the Stations in Northallerton and Thirsk giving direct access to London Kings Cross on the east coast mainline. For those who love to be spoilt and keep fit, there is the fabulous gym and spa at Swinton Park. Additionally, located within a short drive is Grantley Hall, an 18th-century mansion which is another spectacular attraction, with four restaurants (one with a Michelin star) and 30 acres of sweeping wooded parkland and grounds, there’s something there for everyone.
DESCRIPTION Low Foulgate Farm has been the subject of a program of refurbishment over recent years. The vendors are currently in the process of updating the kitchen and installing bi fold doors to the garden. This work is on-going allowing prospective purchasers the opportunity to have an input in the finished design should they so wish.
The remainder of the house and cottage are absolutely stunning. The owners have cleverly combined the original character of the home including exposed stone walls with modern additions such as the beautiful travertine en-suite bathrooms. The amazing conversion of the annexe into a high end Holiday Cottage is simply beautiful and this commands fabulous occupancy rates and provides a great income. The property is sure to appeal to a huge spectrum of purchasers. From families to equestrian enthusiasts alike. The position of the home is enviable and would be difficult to improve. A home that purchasers would be proud to own.
To the Ground Floor:
Approached through an impressive timber panelled door with large windows to all sides, the drawing room has a fabulous fireplace, staircase off with exposed stone wall to the side and rear pedestrian access door leading to the patio and garden. Off the drawing room is the inner hall with cloakroom off and office ideal for those working from home. The family room is a welcoming and cosy space with tremendous stone fire surround and exposed stone walls. This space flows into the kitchen which is currently being reconfigured with bi fold doors facing west making the most of the evening sun. Off the kitchen is a recently constructed pantry. A great space which has been designed purposely to conceal fridge/freezer, all food stuffs and pans on cleverly designed shelving. The utility room has a further cloakroom off and also leads to the large store which was converted from the garage.
To the first floor:
A beautiful galleried landing has exposed stone walls and windows to the front and rear. Adjacent to the window at the front is a delightful space for reading/studying. The guest bedroom is positioned to the front of the house and has exposed beams and stonework. The en suite shower room (as with all of the bathrooms) has had no expense spared in its refurbishment and would not look out of place in a Spa Resort. There is a further double bedroom to the rear with en-suite and views over the gardens and stables beyond, perfect for any pony loving teenager. The master suite has a huge bedroom, en-suite bathroom and large walk in dressing room and again has views to the rear.
The adjacent cottage has been thoughtfully converted by the current owners. It offers extremely high quality two bedroom two bathroom accommodation which is very popular with walkers/ holiday makers and couples alike. The ground floor has an open plan sitting room with wood burning stove and kitchen area off. There is a super double/ twin bedroom with en-suite to the ground floor and to the first floor is a gorgeous master suite with feature slipper bath in the bedroom, perfect for a romantic stay, and additional en-suite shower room.

OUTSIDE The property is approached through a gateway and there is a large gravelled driveway providing off street parking for a large number of vehicles. This area is generally kept for holiday makers and there is a large timber gate to the rear giving a degree of privacy from the rest of the property. There is a raised paved patio with delightful views over the valley beyond. To the right of the driveway is an orchard and chicken run and a grazing field. To the rear and accessed via the aforementioned gate, is a gravelled area for parking. Beyond this is a block of kennels, together with the pretty lawned garden, further paddocks, 4 stables, feed store, storage containers and lunge arena. This is a truly wonderful space for the equestrian enthusiast or those looking to create a business opportunity (subject to planning) such as a glamping destination.
