A handsome period village house with first class equestrian facilities in about eleven acres.
The Gables is a fine Victorian farm house situated on the edge of a pretty village in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds, with fabulous open views of the rolling countryside for which it is known and loved. The house occupies an elevated position at the head of the land it owns, incorporating a self contained annexe on one side and a newly constructed double garage on the other. A gated entrance and driveway bend in front of the house and lead to a stable block and yard, continuing down past another block of stables and all weather arena to the land which extends to the north and west, amounting to about eleven acres in all.
The house itself has been the subject of considerable renovation and refurbishment works, including an updated central heating system, improved floor and wall insulation, a modern fully fitted kitchen and general redecoration and improvements throughout, including new timber and tiled flooring and several wood burning stoves. The result is a property of considerable character but with a very modern fresh feel, ready to move into and enjoy the gardens which surround the house and fabulous rural surroundings from day one. The only outstanding area yet to receive the same attention is the annexe which remains a blank canvass - ideally poised to become a granny annexe, guest annexe or holiday cottage. The ground floor is both spacious and versatile with a room for all occasions and seasons, every room benefiting from excellent natural light levels and contrasting views of the gardens and equestrian facilities. The first floor is equally well-balanced with four bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms, all recently updated.
The equestrian facilities are equally impressive, including a stable yard with six loose boxes, a twin store, tack room and w.c, with power and water. Alongside this is an all weather, floodlit arena and winter paddock. Further down the drive is another stable block with five more loose boxes, one serving as a store, the other an office. Leading directly from here to the north and west are a series of recently re-fenced paddocks extending to about eleven acres.
