About this property

  • Set back from the road and adjacent to St Mary's Church is this individual four bedroomed contemporary village house which offers open plan living on a grand scale, ideal for entertaining and modern family lifestyles. This is a truly unique home which has been the subject of an extensive programme of refurbishment and finished to an exceptionally high standard throughout.

    The property is approached via a sweeping gravelled drive which splits and circles a timber outbuilding which formerly served as stables and a tack room, now a garage and useful store for gardening equipment. The vendors have obtained planning permission for this to be converted into a two storey garage and store (Hambleton Planning ref:19/00077/FUL). Either side of this is plenty of parking for several cars and larger vehicles.

    The adjacent house sits close to the centre of its garden, a patio surrounding it with various zones leading off. The main entrance opens into a well planned kitchen-dining-living area with large picture windows and bi-folding doors allowing natural light to flood in. The stylish kitchen has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate a breakfast bar, quality fitted appliances, including a double oven, double fridge-freezer, integrated wine rack and dishwasher. On the opposite side of the room is a spacious dining and sitting area with double sided wood burning stove creating a wonderful centerpiece, bi-fold doors opening to a dual-tier patio with delightful open aspect across the countryside beyond.

    Continuing through the ground floor there is a nicely proportioned living room with the opposite side of the wood burning stove and bi-fold doors leading to the same patio area. Along the inner hallway are four double bedrooms, including a generous principal bedroom with modern en suite bathroom and a further shower room.

    The property is surrounded by a well designed garden which has been divided into contrasting zones, encompassing a raised terrace with pergola over ideal for alfresco dining in the afternoon sun, a lawned garden with inviting wooden summer house with power and heating and well designed kitchen garden with numerous raised beds. The entire plot is bordered by mature hedging dotted with specimen trees, the western flank adjoining open countryside which extends as far as the eye can see.

    In addition there is a paddock of about an acre across the entrance driveway, currently a commercial growing area with orchard beyond but just as well suited to a pony paddock or play area, complete with independent gated access from the village road.
