About this property

  • Dating from 1919 this handsome double fronted detached house stands back from a peaceful village road with open countryside on three sides and views to towards the Yorkshire Wolds to the North East.

    Significantly extended on two sides more recently the house now offers 6733 sqft of beautifully appointed accommodation on a grand scale. There is a room for all occasions, including a leisure wing with a large games room, currently used as a billiard room and bar which opens into the indoor pool; a fabulous bright space with picture windows on three sides and French doors opening onto a sun terrace. The remaining ground floor space is divided into a series of well-proportioned rooms which suit modern family living, all centering around a stylish hand built kitchen incorporating plenty of storage, an Aga, separate gas hob and twin electric ovens - a true chef's kitchen.

    The feeling of space and quality continues on the first floor where there are five double bedrooms, all with modern shower rooms and plenty of quality built in wardrobes. The principal suite is a cut above the rest, featuring an extended sitting/reading space with glazed lantern above and large full height windows frame the views of the rear garden.

    In addition to the main house there is a separate outbuilding, formerly a stable block, converted into a sizeable garage, workshop and twin offices. The building could be reconfigured to create a self contained annexe (subject to planning permission), reverted to stabling or converted to provide more garaging, although there is another garage to the front of the house.

    Whilst the house is clearly 'best in class' the garden is worthy of an award, thoughtfully landscaped to provide numerous points of interest, beautifully planted to draw the eye and encourage you to meander through to the adjoining paddock which is dotted with specimen trees and incorporates a ornamental pond.
