Quaint thatched cottage bursting with original features for sale in York
A quaint thatched cottage in the village of Long Marston, York, has just entered the property market for £775,000.
Believed to date back to the 13th century, the Grade II listed property occupies a generous plot with its own one-bedroom annexe and plenty of character. If you're looking to swap city life for country living, then this home is just for you.
When you walk in through the front door, the entrance hall opens directly into a warm and inviting lounge, complete with original beams, engineered hardwood floors and an inglenook design fireplace with a log burner. Imagine curling up with a great book or cosying up on the couch.
The beautiful traditional features continue, with the cosy snug boasting stunning green oak beams and an original ornamental fireplace.

From here, there's also access to the single garage.
Two bedrooms, one to the front and one to the rear – which comes with its own shower and separate toilet, as well as a fitted wardrobe – make up the rest of this floor.
Up on the first floor, there's a great second lounge or bonus space complete with a stunning vaulted ceiling. This could be used as a second living room or home office.
Head outside and you'll find manicured gardens, pretty patios, two summerhouses, a workshop and even a fire pit, making this the spot to entertain all year round. And if you've ever thought about growing your own food or caring for chickens and hens, this property comes with a coop and established vegetable patch, as well as a large greenhouse.
The village of Long Marston is located around seven miles from York, with a host of local amenities, such as a highly regarded primary school and a village hall. You'll find a wider variety of shops and places to dine in the nearby market town of Wetherby.
