    About this property

    • Foss Bank Farm is an exclusive development of three luxury homes by the award-winning house builder, Swanhome Developments completed in 2021.

      The Grange has been designed to reflect a traditional barn conversion within a countryside setting on the outskirts of York.

      This family home has been created in a timeless style with a superb layout for modern living with under floor heating throughout the ground floor and oak internal doors. The current owners have also added bespoke electric blackout blinds to the living room and guest bedroom. There is a generous open plan kitchen dining area with a bespoke kitchen complete with granite worktops. The kitchen is fitted with a number of modern integrated appliances: oven, microwave, coffee machine, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a wine cooler. There is an up to date induction hob with a vented extractor. There is a sizeable kitchen island with breakfast bar.

      Beyond the kitchen is the living room with ceiling height windows divided by oak beams, a feature point is the brick fireplace with log burner, a door to the side leads out to the garden. There is a useful utility room with fitted units and a dog shower area.

      For the purchaser who works from home there is an invaluable home office with French doors to the paved patio at the rear of the house and the added benefit of "ultrafast full fibre" broadband connection supporting speeds up to 1GBps. Opposite is a cloakroom which completes the ground floor space.

      The first floor is accessed via an oak and glass staircase leading to the principal bedroom suite, a large space with a pitched roof, luxury en suite, built-in open wardrobes, bespoke shutters and blackout blinds. There are a further three bedrooms, one that is a guest suite and the other two bedrooms serviced by a Jack and Jill shower room, also with bespoke shutters and black out blinds. There is also a contemporary family bathroom with freestanding bath.

      The house is approached via a gravelled driveway leading to a double garage with the addition of an electric charging point. External down lighters around the house have been added to create an inviting ambience in the evening.

      The house is part fenced and part walled garden with lawned area and newly laid patio added to the front and rear of the property. The garden to the front is a private space and has the advantage of facing south. To the left of the entrance to the property is a turning area which is owned by the property and can be used for additional parking or integrated into the current garden space.

    I feel that this is a perfect design of a barn in a superb location only four miles from York with a highly desired private garden.
