Location Overview - From a modest trading settlement in AD 70 and a prosperous Roman town called Isurium Brigantum from AD 120 to around AD 400, Aldborough is steeped in history. Today it is quite simply one of North Yorkshire's best kept secrets, unless of course, you've already had a drink or a bite to eat in the 16th Century The Ship Inn, visited the Roman museum, enjoyed a May Day celebration on the village green, experienced an intimate concert at one of the internationally renowned musical festivals held there every year, now regarded as one of the most prestigious classical music events in the country.

Embraced by countryside, a little over half a mile's walk from Boroughbridge and only 1 mile off junction 47 of the A1(M), Aldborough is also within striking distance of Ripon (8 miles), Harrogate (10 miles), Thirsk (13 miles), York (15 miles) and Leeds (23 miles).

Inside - A reception hall with central staircase and oak flooring leads off into a generous snug and a 21'9" (6.63m) long sitting room featuring a magnificent hand carved stone fireplace with wood burning stove, further oak flooring and double doors opening out into the rear garden. The stunning 22'8" (6.92m) long dining kitchen provides extensive quartz worktops and an expansive range of base and wall storage cupboards complemented by integrated appliances, picture window with rear garden views and a door out to the garden. The ground floor also features a useful utility/boot room and a cloakroom/wc.

Outside - A tandem length driveway to the right hand side of the cottage provides parking and gated access into the rear garden.

The idyllic rear garden extends to almost one fifth of an acre and was designed and landscaped by the current owners in 2001 to create 4 distinctive areas of privacy and purpose. A charming courtyard accessed off the kitchen and sitting room leads onto a sculptured lawn with bountiful borders and an evergreen archway leads you away from the formal splendour through into the hidden havens of a secluded evergreen Mediterranean courtyard and a secret wildflower and wooded retreat beyond.

The garden includes a host of specimen trees and shrubs to include oak, beech, lilac, magnolia and yew plus red robin, witch hazel, viburnum, hibiscus and cornus kous complemented by a number of climbers to include honeysuckles, roses and 2 spectacular clematis specimens.
