A stunning home, sensitively renovated and extended with a beautiful mature private garden.
Dating back to 1795, The Lock House was built by the Foss Navigation Company as part of a movement to make the River Foss navigable and improve river trade. During this time six locks were built to allow the canal to gain the necessary height as the land rose, with lock houses providing accommodation for the keepers.
The property has since undergone a comprehensive programme of renovation and extension, resulting in a seamless blend of Georgian Architecture and contemporary design. The expansive accommodation on offer is particularly adaptable and flows well to combine both family and more formal areas, creating a real sense of spaciousness and entertaining areas.
Set in a particularly peaceful location by the River Foss, the property is superbly situated on the edge of Haxby surrounded by country fields. This truly unique property is approached by its own private lane giving the feeling of seclusion whilst still being close enough to benefit from the plethora of village amenities.
Flooded with natural light, the contemporary main entrance hall extends into an impressive well-appointed kitchen-dining area with apex ceiling and French doors opening on to a paved patio. Continuing through the ground floor there is a separate living room, utility area, study and useful fourth bedroom and bathroom, perfect for guests.
Arranged across the first floor is the principal bedroom with en suite benefitting from a separate bath and shower. There are two further good sized double bedrooms and a house bathroom.
Outside the property is surrounded by mature, beautifully maintained lawned gardens with multiple seating areas making it a perfect entertaining space. To the front and side of the property is a large driveway which offers parking for multiple cars and a separate double garage to the side which has stairs up to a storage area above.
