A handsome and characterful four bedroom home in the popular Wolds Village of Benniworth.
This generous period property has been significantly updated by the vendor without losing its charm and character. The property is believed to originally date back to the early 1900s and retains a wealth or period features, including original fireplaces, solid wood floors, sash windows and a handsome wooden staircase within the original house. Further extensions in the 1990s and 2000s have added additional space to the home while complementing the existing character. The result is an impressive detached property extending to over 2500 sq ft, with beautifully appointed interiors. One highlight is the country-style kitchen, which features attractive green painted cabinetry and wood work surfaces, with the space dominated by a central island and range oven. There is also a good space for a dining table, making it the heart of the family home where there is plenty of room for entertaining. The rest of the house is equally well appointed in a cohesive blend of the modern and traditional, while externally there are expansive gardens and ample parking.
The property is entered by a hallway leading to the staircase and a receiving area with storage. The ground floor accommodation comprises two good-size reception rooms, a conservatory, utility room, the kitchen/dining room. Accessed from outside there is a studio room attached to the garage, which has great potential as a gym or workshop/home office. A smart gardener's toilet is also accessed from outside. The main staircase leads up to a landing and three bedrooms and a family bathroom, while a second separate staircase leads to a self-contained additional bedroom and en-suite shower room. The house has recently been successfully let through AirBnB with two staircases making reasonably self-contained guest quarters a possibility.
The property is approached over a gated brick-paved driveway. There is a pretty front garden enclosed by high manicured hedging providing a good degree of privacy. The driveway wraps around the attached double garage and side of the studio. To the rear there is a lovely landscaped garden over two levels with a large brick-paved patio for outdoor dining, a generous level lawn, an expansive pond a walled boundary and a covered timber pergola. A variety of mature trees and shrubs provide seasonal interest.
