Ayton Firs is a quintessential country home dating back to the 19th Century built by Alfred Edward Kitching. The house boasts the perfect combination of elegance and comfortable family space. The stunning hallway with oak staircase is set under a stain glass ceiling with oak doors to a sumptuous drawing room with roaring fire, morning room with views across the formal gardens, library, an elegant dining room ideal for hosting guests and family. The handcrafted kitchen complete with AGA is the hub of the house with additional prep kitchen/utility and cloakroom. A winding staircase takes you to the first floor where light is reflected all around from the stain glass ceiling. The master bedroom offers breathtaking panoramic views across the gardens, farmland and the Cleveland Hills and with beautiful en suite bathroom. There are five further bedrooms, house bathroom and shower room to the first floor level. On the second floor there is an 'apartment' or further bedroom space accessed via a 'servants' stairwell to the ground floor with sitting room, bedroom and bathroom as well as plentiful storage space.
Making this house truly exceptional are the gardens forming formal gardens around the pond and leading to 'secret gardens' and expansive lawns all surrounded by rolling countryside. The sweeping gravelled forecourt provides ample parking and further leads to a detached double garage and outbuildings.
The elevated position of the property is to such a degree that it is completely free from prying eyes whilst having the security of neighbours.
