A 'BEAUTIFUL' Grade II listed village home dating back to the Georgian era has been put up for sale.

Built in 1743, the six-bedroom property in Back Lane, Higher Whitley, sits within the village conservation area surrounded by landscaped gardens and grounds.

Marketed at £1.195m by Stuart Rushton & Co., the house, which offers a lot of accommodation over three storeys, is in a much-sought after location.

With multiple reception rooms, including a snug, a central dining room and a large sitting room, the house can be utilised in different ways.

Visitors are greeted through the original central front door with an entrance hall and staircase leading to all floors. There is also a half-cellar and a downstairs toilet.

Through the hall, the snug and dining room can be accessed. Heading beyond the dining area, into the heart of the house, is the large, open-plan kitchen, which comes with its own dining area and living space overlooking the garden.

The property listing on Rightmove reads: "Most of the ground floor enjoys a limestone tiled floor and the family area in the kitchen has a wood burning stove.

"A glazed door leads through to a small sun room with french doors to the terrace and garden beyond."

Towards the rear of the property can be found a utility room and other ancillary rooms, including a boiler room.

Upstairs, the main bedroom boasts a walk-through dressing area and an en suite shower room.

Also on the first floor are three further double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom and the other two sharing a large family bathroom with bath and separate shower.

Three further bedrooms can be found on the upper floor, with one currently being used as lounge and one as a study, with both sharing a top floor shower room.
