New York Public Library: a unique holiday home for up to 8 guests.
New York Public Library, offers up to 8 guests the chance to relax in a peaceful yet inspirational environment, enjoying the height of luxury from the comfort of this unique three bedroom self catering Yorkshire holiday home, with a newly renovated stylish annex ideal for a couple looking for some privacy with a large double bed and en-suite or perfect for a large group looking for Yorkshire holiday accommodation with a difference.
Designed and built by widely recognised writer, art collector and curator, Greville Worthington, this Yorkshire holiday accommodation close to the historic market town of Richmond was created to be a calming Yorkshire retreat for all of its guests. Greville took inspiration for the Yorkshire holiday home from a Japanese wood burning craft that preserves and enhances the beauty of wood over time, which resulted in the dark wood exterior providing guests with a truly unique setting, unlike any other luxury Yorkshire self catering holiday cottage.
It’s important to note that this property is not in New York, nor is it a library or even open to the public! The owner, a gentleman of great creative thought, lives nearby in St Paulinus, a deconsecrated former church, part of this property is based on the old public library in York, and that's how the new York public library found it's name.
For, just like its name, this striking four bedroom house is totally unexpected.
From all aspects of the property guests can view the ever-changing acres of private park and woodlands which play a major part in the overall experience of New York Public Library and be amongst an outdoor space which is ideal for entertaining or quiet relaxation. Enjoy your own private, log burning wooden hot-tub, a unique art installation created by architect and designer Amanda Levete, enjoy an outdoor cooking experience at the Patagonia Grill Station, relax at the fire pit while the kids explore the wooden lookout tower complete with a secure den and viewing balcony with views across the surrounding fields.
Sour Beck runs through the field opposite and there are plenty of great picnic sites to be found. It’s a short walk to the bluebell woodland gardens which has a superb collection of rare trees and shrubs including bamboos, magnolias and witch hazels.
The main entrance to this three bedroom holiday property is via large glass sliding doors, which provide access to the heart of the property; a spacious and impressive living and dining area where guests can indulge with friends and family, or relax whilst taking in the views of the countryside.
Carefully selected interiors and art pieces create an inspiring and eclectic living area, including some well considered Damien Hirst pieces which adorn the walls in the lounge area and in pride of place, a table football machine.
Upstairs is just as impressive, with two double bedrooms each with sliding doors opening on to the South facing sun terrace. The master bedroom has a feature roll bath in the bedroom and a further en-suite. The third bedroom is smaller, suitable for children has two single divan beds. There is also a house bathroom with shower, toilet and washbasin.
The additional annex provides a super king size bed and en-suite facilities with private outdoor seating area.
New York Public Library sleeps 8 guests and we can provide additional cots free of charge and Z-beds for children under the age of 10 for an additional cost of £25 each. Please call 01748 850 333 to purchase any extra beds.
