The setting of High Woodhouse is truly unique - the aspect from each window portrays the magnificence and stunning beauty of Wharfedale, whether it be over the rolling gardens to the side and rear, or across to the moorland and fells beyond the River Wharfe in a southerly direction. Although the house carries an Appletreewick address, it is in fact situated just outside Burnsall and its location between these two picturesque villages ensures that it enjoys the feel of Rural England yet is neither isolated nor remote - Grassington village is just 4 miles away and offers a good range of quality shops and hostelries, and any family living at High Woodhouse will benefit from being within the catchment area for Skipton's Grammar Schools and Upper Wharfedale Secondary School, as well as having a well-endorsed OFSTED Primary School at nearby Burnsall just over a mile away.

High Woodhouse is a very special property. Its origins reputedly date back to 1512 as evidenced by a historic rhyming inscription on the western gable, depicting the story of the original thatched cabin and barn which stood on the site. The majority of the present house was constructed in 1901 and offers a sense of contemporary elegance, with beautifully proportioned rooms all of which are immaculately decorated and equipped. On the ground floor there are four reception rooms and a beautifully fitted craftsman-built kitchen with utility room. On the first floor, there are four bedrooms plus a study area, and three bathrooms. Accessed from the central ground floor Hallway is a cinema room, home office and shower room, which was formerly a separate Relatives Suite which could easily be reformed if desired.

Outside, High Woodhouse is approached by electric remote controlled gates which lead to a wide tarmac parking/turning area bordered by stone setts and flags, and leading to the detached double garage which also provides a first floor area, suitable as a gym or second office. The gardens extend to 0.87 acres and have been professionally landscaped, with sweeping lawns, an area of woodland, well-stocked borders and beds, thoughtfully placed secluded seating areas and a thatched roof gazebo.

A new roof was laid in 2016 and the main house is heated by an LPG radiator system from a smart-control boiler (also installed in 2016), with the east wing having modern electric panel heaters, and the majority of the windows are hardwood double glazed. For anyone appreciative of true quality, High Woodhouse is a property not to be missed and is highly recommended for internal inspection.
