About this property

  • Seton East House is an attractive C Listed farmhouse set in a superb plot with panoramic views. The house is stone built with a slate roof and has spacious accommodation arranged over three floors. On the ground floor there are fine reception rooms and family living spaces. At the heart of the house is a spacious hallway off which are two of the reception rooms and two corridors which lead to the kitchen and drawing room. The kitchen is excellently laid out, with a central island and plenty of space for a dining table. The room is dual aspect and fitted with a range of traditionally styled base and wall mounted units with a Corian worktop. Integrated appliances include a gas fired AGA and a NEFF two burner gas hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, oven, grill and warming drawer. Off the kitchen is a home office and utility room with back door and shower room.

    Linking with the kitchen and main hall is the family sitting room which has a door to the garden and a fireplace with wood burning stove. Across the hallway is the dining room and the drawing room is situated beyond and is double aspect. The drawing room has decorative cornicing, which is a feature throughout the reception rooms, and there is also a wood burning stove, which is set beneath an attractive timber mantelpiece. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a cloakroom off the entrance hall.

    At first floor level there are three generously sized bedrooms, a family bathroom and a dressing room. The principal bedroom is en suite and south facing with an adjacent dressing room. The other two bedrooms face north and south with the family bathroom located just off the landing by the stairs to the second floor. The bedrooms on the second floor have wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and have a toilet with wash hand basin situated between them.

    At the front of the house is a large gravel driveway which is entered through two stone pillars. There is plenty of space for parking and access to the outbuilding from here. The garden wraps around the house from west to north and benefits from the sun for most of the day. The garden is mainly laid to lawn but is bound by mature and well-kept borders with well-established plants, shrubs and trees which provide shelter and privacy. A low stone wall encloses the property and on the west side of the house is a garden room overlooking the lawn.

    The outbuilding on the south side of the house forms most of the southern boundary. The building is stone built and has space for three stables, as well as a tack room and feed room, which are currently used for storage and at the far end of the building is a home gym.

    Lot 2: Offers over £150,000.
    Lot 2 sits off the east side of Fishergate Road but is adjacent to the house.
