A detached family home in a glorious rural setting with three bedrooms, delightful views and mature gardens with private vineyard.
Monument House enjoys an enviable rural position in the pretty hamlet of Somerby with fantastic views over open countryside towards the scenic Ancholme Valley. Originally constructed in 1964 the property was thoughtfully extended in 2009 and is decorated in a complementary style that's both traditional with contemporary touches, including underfloor heating throughout and a handsome country-style kitchen. The highlight of the property is certainly its stunning and well-established gardens with its very own impressive vineyard which are private with no overlooking neighbours and ideally angled to capture the sun throughout the day. The detached home has high ceilings and generous proportions throughout making it the perfect house for entertaining, with equally spacious grounds for dining outside in the warmer months.
The accommodation extends to over 2200 sq ft across two floors with spacious and versatile living space throughout. On the ground floor a welcoming porch opens to an entrance hall with WC leading through to a private study, formal dining room and adjoining sitting room with French doors out to a sun room with delightful views across the rear gardens and countryside beyond. The Clive Christian inspired kitchen is complete with a central island, complementary granite work surfaces, an AGA cooker, premium NEFF appliances and attractive illuminated cabinetry. On the first floor there is a principal bedroom with fitted wardrobes, two further good-size bedrooms with built-in storage and a well-appointed family bathroom with a freestanding bathtub.
The home occupies a generous plot behind a sizeable dual driveway providing parking for a number of vehicles with access to an integral single garage. There are lawned areas to the front whilst the majority of the space is situated to the rear, where there is a large garden of about five acres with a favourable south-westerly aspect. The gardens are wonderfully secluded and comprise an expansive rolling lawn with a spacious patio perfectly designed to take in the picturesque views across the surrounding countryside. There is a fully powered summerhouse, whilst beyond the garden is a tranquil private vineyard extending to approximately 2000 variety of vines in about three acres.

Monument House is beautifully presented throughout and all to a very high standard, it enjoys a very special elevated position with the most magnificent views. I can imagine enjoying a glass of wine from its own vineyard sitting on the terrace watching the sun go down.Roo FisherProperty agent
