Secret Garden House formerly ''The Grove'' is an impressive stone built Georgian, Grade II Listed residence and 2 Coachhouse apartments. It stands in a large, secluded walled garden, in the centre of the popular market town of Leyburn.
Leyburn has a thriving community, with an array of shops, pubs, Tennants auction house, schools, churches, doctors, dentists. There are walks from the doorstep which include the famous Leyburn Shawl, Penhill etc and many other tourist attractions such as Castles, Aysgarth and Hardraw falls. There are community events throughout the year such as Leyburn 1940's weekend and the Wensleydale agricultural show.
The house and garden were used in the filming of the popular series "All Creatures Great and Small". Building of the main house started in 1720, on the site of a 17th century tannery. Part of the house was a theatre in 1800 and Lord Nelson's surgeon, Peter Goldsmith (buried in Wensley churchyard) was a previous owner. The summer house in the secluded gardens is over 200 years old.
Work is required to both properties, as they are in need of modernisation. There is a building, ''The Stable'' which needs renovating, but appears to have been a dwelling.
The main house offers spacious accommodation and period features. It has an impressive entrance hall, large kitchen diner, 3 reception rooms, conservatory, utility, boiler room, separate WC, 6 double bedrooms (of which 3 are en-suite), house bathroom and 2 large loft rooms on the second floor.
The Coach house includes first and second floor apartments. The first floor can be accessed via Love Lane and has two double bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living room, conservatory and a roof top, terraced balcony. The ground floor, which is accessed at the rear of the main house, was recently occupied by the current owner and is in relatively good condition and has a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, a living area with kitchen and another bathroom.
Externally, the property is surrounded by a stone wall boundary, and has a wrought iron gated entrance from Grove Square. The grounds are very private and interesting with several areas. Mature trees, some which have TPO's. There are lawned areas, a huge tree house and many interesting features, including summer house which is over 200 years old and an eighteenth century sundial. There is also a large workshop with folding doors to front and a door to the rear which leads to the balcony and love lane.
