This beautiful five-bedroom house with bold color pops stands in the village of Gate Helmsley, near York. The 4,500 sq feet house has been restored by its current owners with much attention to its original features while also making it ready for contemporary living.
The house and ground were once a working farm, and the outbuildings have now been linked to the house with a sculptural glass ceiling over the yard. With this, they also created a new living space called the Orangery, which can be enjoyed all year round.
Besides the restored Georgian house built in 1759, the ground features a second building, now home to a beautiful guest house with a living and bedroom.
The house features several sitting rooms. This one is bright and colorful, with a pink Ligne Roset sofa and light blue trimmings, shelves, and doors.
The room is centered around a beautiful marble fireplace.
The kitchen is a lovely space with cabinets painted in a soft yellow shade that is combined with caesar stone worktops and splashback.
The kitchen island is a beautiful vintage freestanding French shop counter-sourced and adapted by The French House.
A 1920s extension now houses an open-plan dining and bar area. From here, Crittal-style doors open onto a terrace with a barbeque area.
The hallway is lined with black and white checkerboard tiles from Ca’Pietra.
In the third sitting room, the original wooden floorboards have been sanded and stained. the room features a stylish Jotul woodburner, in a fireplace with its original brick lintel.
The former yard has been turned into a beautiful orangery. The owners added a glazed roof and lined the floor with beautiful reclaimed terracotta tiles sourced from Bert & May.
The master bedroom is decorated with “Broadwick Street” wallpaper by Little Greene.
The family bathroom features a light pink vanity with double sinks.
The owners have designed varied entertaining spaces, including an outdoor kitchen area, and another seating area tucked around the corner, all covered for use year-round.
The grounds feature a self contained one bedroom cottage that can be used as a guesthouse or holiday let.
The living space has a kitchenette and is warmed by a wood-burning stove. Tucked behind Crittal-style doors is a double bedroom.
This wonderful historic house is now for sale at Inigo.
