Avenue Cottage, an original stone built cottage, has been renovated and extended in a very modern style, sits detached from its neighbours and is the last house in The Avenue with walks from the doorstep bordering on open countryside. Sitting on the northwest fringe of the town, one of the main routes into Masham, the houses line one side of The Avenue overlooking the River Ure near Burn Bridge. The Avenue is tree-lined with mature limes that were planted in 1875 to mark the opening of the railway, which later closed in 1963. Separating The Avenue from the river is open parkland known locally as The Shooting Holme which has adjacent playing fields and tennis courts. With the market place only walking minutes away it is very convenient for all the town has to offer.
To the side of the cottage is a gated driveway with adequate parking space and low walled garden with views to the parkland and river. Entry from the driveway is to a hallway which leads to a large open plan kitchen and dining room with tiled floor and French windows opening to the lawn and garden. Through the kitchen is a short hallway which opens to the small orangery with lofted glass roof and large French windows at both sides opening to the garden and rear patio respectively. Between the kitchen and orangery is a washroom with toilet and washbasin.
The front hallway also gives access to a spacious lounge with an oak stairway with glass balustrade rising to the landing. This serves two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room with washbasin and toilet, two single bedrooms and a fully tiled bathroom with bath, shower cabinet, washbasin and toilet.
To the rear of the cottage is a patio garden which can be reached around the side of the house or through the orangery. A pleasant little suntrap to enjoy those long summer days.
The cottage has been stylishly designed and meticulously converted to the modern world with some traditional features still remaining. A contemporary and progressive cottage that offers a very high standard of accommodation.
Please note this cottage is let on a Friday to Friday basis.
