Sat just south of Harrogate, described as an area known for ‘individual and exclusive homes’, Shenley is on the market for the first time since 1982. That date is quite important as the interior is perhaps more in keeping with the eighties than the thirties. Don’t let that put you off though, decor os decor, easily changed over time. The structure is the main thing – and that’s here, along with the distinctive flat roof and some period features.

  • It looks like the work of Harrogate’s finest (well, only) exponent of art deco, Colonel R B Armistead. The curved corners, semi-circular bays and general air of solidity can also be found in his best known work, White Lodge, in Hookstone Road, Harrogate.
