A substantial contemporary stone built house in a peaceful corner of a popular Howardian Hills village
Vale House is an attractive detached, modern family house with an outdoor pool and integral double garage, set within generous, wrap-around gardens.
The land rises gently behind to a bank of trees with open views to the front. This property occupies a discreet, elevated position at the end of a cul-de-sac, on the edge of the village which has good local amenities. The house has well balanced, family friendly accommodation that includes an annexed room above the garage which would make an ideal office, games room or spare bedroom.
The large kitchen/dining room offers plenty of space to entertain with double doors opening into the sitting room as well as full-height, sliding patio doors that lead to the decked patio area at the edge of the pool. The kitchen itself is handmade by Treske of Thirsk; it includes a kitchen island unit, granite worktops, a slate tiled floor and separate utility room. The generous sitting room enjoys plenty of natural light from full-height doors which lead onto the decking area and also accesses the conservatory with its south westerly orientation.
On the first floor are five bedrooms and the space above the garage which would work well as a games room or sixth bedroom. There are three modern bathrooms and of the five bedrooms, three have fitted wardrobes. Bedroom two has a Juliet balcony with west facing views across the garden.
Vale House stands in generous gardens, screened from neighbours with well-established hedges, trees, shrubs, raised beds and a sizeable lawn. An outdoor, swimming pool, which is heated via solar cover, takes centre stage, protected by a clipped box hedge on one side and framed by lavender on the other. There is stone paving and a newly-refurbished area of decking alongside the swimming pool and pool house, which is constructed of brick and timber with a pantile roof mirroring the house. If desired the space could be converted into a summer house or even a detached home office.
