Pretty country cottage with bags of space

A tad on the pricey side for 'Wreck' but, given the upmarket area and the all-round adorable-ness of this farmhouse, we can live with that.
Brinkburn Farmhouse is a large four-bedroom, three-storey end-terrace in the North Yorkshire village of Hovingham, around 18 miles from York.
Lots of space - three reception rooms, kitchen, diary (?), store and two halls downstairs; four bedrooms plus bathroom on the first floor, and two large attics on the second.

There is a crazy edge to it - the floor plan for example shows one bedroom "sealed off", although the agent's details note that room has now been unsealed. (I'm sorry, but the only vaguely good reason I can think of for sealing up a bedroom is to cut heating costs. Otherwise, I'm thinking this.)

And access to the street the property sits on involves crossing a stream, albeit across some pretty solid looking bridges.

Brinkburn Farmhouse is Grade II listed and there are lovely original features throughout, I particularly like the windows.

To the rear is a cute cottage garden, with stone outbuildings, garage and parking area.

On the market via Rounthwaite & Woodhead at £375K. It failed to sell after its Open Day viewings and has been up for sale for a while so possibly some wriggle-room on that price... More details here and here.
