Step inside this three-bedroom luxury holiday home which balances modern conveniences and Georgian architecture.
Set on a cobbled street in Richmond, there are three steps up from Frenchgate into the hallway of Porte House, which has high ceilings and traditional lighting, and is set over three floors.
On the ground floor, the dining room looks out to the front of the house and has a large dining table and log-burning stove. The well-equipped kitchen looks out to the enclosed courtyard at the rear of the house. There is a ground floor WC, with a boot store and coat racks. Downstairs is a cellar, where you will find the utility room. On the first floor is the large sitting room. There is seating for six people around the lovely open fire.
The enclosed garden is at the rear of the property of this luxury dog-friendly holiday home. It is a sun-trap courtyard, with west-facing garden outdoor seating and ivy growing up the walls. In the courtyard, find the Den with a small fire and seating to give a fun space to retreat to and a separate log store.
On the first floor is the master bedroom, which looks out to the garden. This has a king-sized bed as well as a dressing table and plenty of storage. The house bathroom is spacious, on the second floor. Relax in the fantastic free-standing bath, or use the separate large walk-in shower.
On the second floor, Bedroom 2 has a king-sized bed and large wardrobes, a decorative fireplace, and views towards Swaledale. Bedroom 3 is cosy with a double bed and a large chest of drawers. In this wonderful old house, the wooden beams support the angled ceilings making part of this bedroom below head height.
For families or child-friendly breaks, please ask for a complimentary cot or high chair which are available on request. There is parking available on the street outside, though no dedicated parking space. Up to two dogs are welcome – our doggy T’s & C’s.
