Heaton House is an imposing country house on the outskirts of the popular market town of Boroughbridge in North Yorkshire. The property has elegantly proportioned rooms and an impressive two-storey reception hall with a stunning central staircase leading to the mezzanine level. The reception rooms are handsome: the drawing room has two full-height glazed bay windows looking out towards the water garden and French doors out to the terrace, as does the sitting room. The dining room has a feature fireplace, as does the games room, while the kitchen sits in the heart of the house and offers access to the cellars.

Upstairs, the galleried landing leads to the principal bedroom suite which encompasses the whole of the front of the house and has a balcony with outstanding views over the gardens. There are two further bedroom suites in the main house. The cottage provides additional accommodation, with two bedrooms and a sitting room.

Outside, the gardens offer great privacy to the property, and lie principally to the south and east. They include formal lawned gardens outside the large terrace, and the water gardens beyond, while a delightful secret garden includes exotic plants and rock formations; beyond here lies the parkland.

There is a range of traditional outbuildings which are also useful for offices, or as tack rooms or garaging. The grounds come to around seven acres.
