Description and Location

THE RECTORY at West Tanfield has served the local parish since the late 19th century. The house stands in a level plot of 0.148 hectares (0.37 acres) lying adjacent to Main Street (A6108) overlooking St Nicholas’s Church and The Marmion Tower, both of which overlook the River Ure. The market town of Masham lies 4 miles to the north with its pretty market square and the world famous Black Sheep Brewery. The much larger market town of Ripon lies 6 miles to the south with a wide range of local retail and recreational facilities. Ripon is also home to the Cathedral Church of St Peter & St Wilfrid which has served the local community for over 850 years. Nearby is the renowned National Trust property of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Park. The Rectory is constructed of coursed stone to all elevations under a multi-pitched slate roof. In addition to the main building, there is a range of single storey outbuildings and a detached two storey double garage formerly a carriage house with hayloft over and now suitable for a wide variety of ancillary domestic uses, subject to consent. The availability of The Rectory in West Tanfield represents one of those increasingly rare opportunities to acquire a Victorian period rectory with many fine architectural features and now requiring a degree of modernisation giving prospective buyers the opportunity of creating a comprehensive programme of refurbishment and redecoration. Oil fired central heating is installed.
