Magnificent Yorkshire property for sale with commanding views

The Old Rectory is a fine 19th century former rectory 20 miles from York, situated at the highest point of the village of Nunnington in Yorkshire which lies on the banks of the River Rye.

Dating from 1858, this stone property will be in considerable demand: in North Yorkshire, dower houses, manor houses and smaller country houses of that ilk are particularly scarce, largely because most of the large estates have not sold and released many properties of this stature, which usually tend to be the best family properties in a village or smaller town.

The property itself offers extremely spacious family accommodation of extremely high quality with high ceilings, large, light rooms and splendid views out over Ryedale, the Vale of Pickering and the North York Moors. Inside the period and the contemporary blend quite harmoniously.
