The availability of 'The Brown House' on the open market represents one of the most exciting opportunities to have arisen within the Guisborough property market place for some time. Being, without doubt, one of the most interesting and gracious houses in the town, 'The Brown House' was constructed to a high specification in 1909 and was designed by the eminent Middlesbrough architect W. G. Roberts. Being in appearance very much influenced by the 'Arts & Crafts Movement' of the Edwardian era, externally 'The Brown House' remains almost unchanged from when it was first built and is truly a delight to the eye. Internally the house has been lovingly and sympathetically restored over the past decade with great skill and attention to detail. Indeed the restoration was carried out to such a high standard that it was featured in 'Home Building and Renovation' magazine, 'Yorkshire Life' magazine, as well as numerous other home style magazines. Requiring internal inspection to be appreciated, the house possesses endless lovely original features and offers an interesting and versatile combination of period charm with modern contemporary living, formal living and comfortable day to day living and the ability to create a number of connotations of either reception or bedroom accommodation, dependant upon the needs of the purchaser. Equally well suited for either the professional couple seeking a home of style and distinction or for the large extended family looking for a super spacious family house, 'The Brown House' truly is a very special property of a type and calibre few and far between in the Guisborough area and equally very rarely available on the open market. The house stands in lovely private gardens which combine to provide complete privacy and seclusion and yet the house is within comfortable walking distance of the historic town centre with its range of shopping facilities and amenities. Stokesley Road remains one of the most envied addresses in the town, it being characterised by a number of large individual detached period residences, all of which stand in lovely wooded grounds, which combine to provide a most delightful environment within which to live. Guisborough is well served for a good range of supermarkets, doctors' and dentists' surgeries and a public library. The Coast, the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and the industrial centres of Teesside are all within comfortable driving distance. All in all A VERY SPECIAL HOUSE IN A VERY SPECIAL LOCATION - early inspection advised.

The front garden is laid to lawn, an interesting variety of fine established ornamental trees and shrubs and flower beds stocked with traditional perennials and herbaceous plants.
