    About this property

    • Butchers Barn is a stylish and immaculately presented conversion of a former farm outbuilding, nestled in a quiet residential area within the picturesque village of Wheldrake.

      This traditional brick property is a light-filled home beautifully appointed with a neutral palette throughout. Salient points include a contemporary shaker style kitchen, beautifully-appointed bathroom suites, exposed stone walls, ceiling beams and an inviting south facing walled garden.

      The current owner (a professionally qualified interior designer) has recently completed a new roof to the front section of the property, rewired throughout, new damp course (with 20 year guarantees) and additional floor to ceiling insulation in the lounge for energy efficiency, a new pressurised hot water system, installation of a large 7.8 KW wood burner and new bathrooms, cloakrooms, kitchen and a new boot room/utility area. There are bespoke luxury panelled wardrobes to two bedrooms which are hand made. The barn now has a new improved EPC rating of C which is very good for such a large property. The property is also double-glazed throughout.

      The accommodation is arranged over two floors, with the ground floor living space comprising a sizeable new boot room/utility area with beautiful cobbled flooring, bespoke hand built storage and a glazed door to the garden. Leading from the boot room is the dining room and then through to the expansive and light filled living room. The living room offers a superb space for entertaining with French doors leading out to the garden and a newly fitted cast iron log burner. On the opposite side of the boot room is the impressive newly fitted kitchen with a comprehensive range of wall and base units, a Rangemaster induction electric cooker, Carrera stone worktops, Perrin & Rowe mixer taps with cold water filter tap, along with Italian porcelain tiles and a dining area with a glazed door leading out to the garden.

      Beyond the kitchen is a cosy snug room with exposed beams, a and direct access to the garden.

      To the first floor are three excellent bedrooms and a recently newly fitted bathroom with separate shower. Bedroom three upstairs has wall to wall new bespoke panelled fitted wardrobes. The principal bedroom is positioned on the ground floor with a lovely outlook to the garden, together with a well-appointed large walking shower with Hansgrohe fittings. The bedroom suite also has a large wall to wall run of hand-made bespoke panelled wardrobes offering generous hanging and drawer space.

      The walled garden has been designed and landscaped by the current owner, who has planted an abundance of seasonal plants, flowers, shrubs and David Austin Roses. There is a patio running along the side of the garden laid with Indian sandstone, the garden offers wonderful privacy and a southerly aspect. To the side of the house there is a good amount of gated off street parking and a sizeable garage with patio area beyond.

      It is unusual to find such a substantial building in the centre of the village yet off the main road, offering both privacy and accessibility.

    This is one surprisingly substantial property tucked away within this lovely village. I really like the flow between the inside and outside space that is on offer, having a ground floor bedroom suite means that the living space is very versatile.
