However, it is a perfect holiday home for a family break! With acres of private woodland to explore, an outdoor grilling station, a hot tub and space for all of the family - New York Public Library is the perfect way to spend a couple of nights away with family or friends in a truly unique setting in North Yorkshire close to Richmond, North Yorkshire but far enough away for total tranquility...
The main house sleeps up to 6 guests in 3 stylish bedrooms, downstairs has an impressive living and dining area with views of rolling countryside and outdoor space where you can all relax after a day exploring the private bluebell woodland gardens.
The interiors have been carefully selected to create an inspiring yet relaxing environment, including some Damien Hirst artwork on the walls and a table football machine to keep the whole group entertained!
Outside is just as impressive at New York Public Library surrounded by acres of private woodland with something for everybody to enjoy - allow the men to show off their fire starting skills with some al fresco dining at the Outdoor Grilling Station, whilst the girls take a dip in the hot tub with a glass of something cold and the kids tire themselves out exploring the look out tower!
New York Public Library can now offer up to 8 guests the chance to stay with the addition of this newly renovated stylish annex for 2, which is the ideal place for granny and grandpa to stay while on holiday with the family or a couple looking for more privacy with a large double bed and en-suite. There is plenty of space to accommodate the whole family for a relaxing breakaway or a group of friends for a special occasion!
Why the New York Public Library name?
As I said earlier, it is important to note that this property is not in New York, it is close to Richmond, North Yorkshire, nor is it a library or even open to the public!
The owner, Greville Worthington, lives nearby in St Paulinus, a deconsecrated former church. Part of this unusual and interesting property is based on the old public library in York. So that's how the New York Public Library got its name. And just like its name, this unique four bedroom Yorkshire holiday home is totally unexpected...
