Wesley House details
Converted into a three bedroom, two bathroom dwelling in 1985, Wesley House, an old Wesleyan Chapel was built in 1899 and boasts many original features such as its gothic doors and windows, beams, wooden floors and panelling. In 2014, the current owners lovingly modernised the property with the addition of an orangery complete with open fire.
The village of Marton-le-Moor is a quiet, rural village just 5 minutes from the A1 and A19, equidistant to the Yorkshire Moors and Dales. The small, ancient town of Boroughbridge and the fabulous cathedral city of Ripon are both just 10 minutes away. A few minutes further are Thirsk and Harrogate.
