Delightful character country home with outdoor pool set in magnificent private gardens backing onto open fields in sought after village of Screveton
Skreton Cottage comprises a fine 18th Century small country house in magnificent gardens with an outdoor pool area, in the same ownership and occupation for over 50 years.
The main period house which has been carefully extended
in keeping with the original design is of stone and rendered brick beneath a pantiled roof and sits back from the village road surrounded by beautifully maintained and landscaped grounds and gardens. The principal accommodation within the original house on the ground floor offers an entrance hallway with access to the attractive sitting room with a beamed ceiling and a fine chimney piece, there is a separate dining room also with beamed ceiling. The dining kitchen has recently been refitted and has a range of built-in quality appliances including an induction hob with canopy over, built-in double oven, integrated dishwasher and refrigerator. There is also a built-in wine cooler. Doorway through to a spacious glazed conservatory which benefits from under floor heating and a fine aspect across its adjoining terrace and the gardens beyond. There is a ground floor cloakroom and W.C and the main drawing room again overlooks the gardens and has French doors leading out onto its own terraced area. A side
hallway leads to a store room fitted with library shelving, boiler room and a spacious utility with sink unit fitted cupboards. A more recently carefully conceived extension offers a fine ground floor bedroom suite, a substantial double bedroom, walk-in wardrobe and a very spacious, well fitted bathroom with a bath, W.C and hand basin and a walk-in wet room area and shower.
The first floor within the original house has four further bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom and a separate modern family bathroom and W.C. There are fine views across the garden and open fields beyond from the large rear bedrooms. The driveway leads up to the house with a substantial detached garage/coach house which we understand was originally a primitive Methodist chapel now offering garaging and workshop accommodation with wide, folding timber doors. The gardens and grounds of the property are a particular feature of the property. The main gardens around the house are laid to lawn with deep, stocked borders and a variety of interesting and varied shrubs and trees. The property to the rear backs mainly onto open farmland with fine views. There are generous paved terraced areas around the property, separate walled pool area with a recently renovated outdoor heated pool with separate pump and filtration room
nearby. The garden enjoys a high degree of privacy and has been open previously for over 21 years under the National Garden Scheme.
