Read More - Formerly a gentleman's farmhouse believed to date from the eighteenth century, Middle Park House has been sympathetically extended with wings added either side to create an elegant front elevation, its symmetry enhanced by a central pathway lined with lavender. The principal rooms lie either side of the central hallway and face west across the extensive gardens. The whole has been beautifully restored retaining many period features including open fireplaces, muti-paned sash windows, exposed beams and panelled doors with brass furniture.

The kitchen is connected to the large, double aspect family room with French doors opening due south onto the garden terrace. It is a Shaker style kitchen with granite worktops, a double butler sink and a four-oven Aga. The ground floor accommodation is versatile and itself extends to some 4000 sq ft including at least four reception rooms and scope to create a self-contained annexe. On the first floor, the principal bedroom suite is triple aspect and sits on the southern wing of the property. It has a fitted dressing room and luxurious bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, one with its own en suite bathroom, plus a family shower room. To the north side of the upper floor and accessed via a separate staircase is a spacious guest suite with dressing room and bathroom.

Outside - The property is accessed via a long tree-lined drive that terminates in a gravelled sweep in front of the house and triple garage where there is an ample parking area. The gardens are well-established and beautifully landscaped. There is a south and west facing courtyard garden fronted by mellow brick buildings, a front lawn overhung by willows and bounded by hedges of yew and beech with lofty poplars beyond, and a broad sweep of lawn alongside a flagged terrace with low walls and herbaceous borders. There is also a kitchen garden with greenhouses and fruit cage. Beyond, a hazel walk leads to the tennis court. All adjoins farmland.

Environs - Two miles away is the bustling market town of Thirsk with its railway station offering a direct service to London Kings Cross, racecourse and cobbled market square lined with independent shops, inns and cafés. Northallerton also has a wide range of facilities and amenities including a Betty's Tea Shop, an M&S Food Hall and a railway station also with direct connections to London Kings Cross and Edinburgh.

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
