Millbrook House, Cocksford, Stutton, near Tadcaster LS24 9NG

Millbrook House was built at the behest of the current owners some 18 years ago and, with some minimal improvements, would make a superb family home in a most attractive rural setting. Approached via stone built pillars and a gravel drive, the house faces its own fabulous garden with rolling fields beyond.

The gardens sweep around all sides of the house with the main garden facing south. A large lawn is surrounded by extensive herbaceous borders, packed with hundreds of spring bulbs, hardy perennials and specimen plants. Gravelled paths dissect the borders giving easy access and varied viewpoints. The vegetable garden is situated at the top corner with a number of productive, raised wooden beds and immediately to the front of the house is a large, sun-filled gravelled patio bounded by a low stone wall with planting within and shaped beds. This makes a perfect spot for al fresco dining.

The ground and first floor rooms have been designed to enjoy the garden: the double aspect sitting room with large window to the front and two French doors to the landscaped side garden; the dining room and breakfast kitchen both with windows to the front; and the family room with French doors opening onto the al fresco area. The main bedrooms also overlook the front garden and, beyond, to open countryside.

The entrance and staircase hall is impressive: glazed double doors with a double height arched window throw light into the hall revealing a dramatic staircase and galleried landing.

The open plan kitchen/breakfast room makes an ideal family space. It has recently been refurbished with smart, contemporary fittings including sink with mixer tap, fitted dishwasher, and Bosch ceramic grill with extractor hood and built-in twin ovens.

Storage is in generous supply: there is a useful back hall area, a spacious utility/laundry room and the lobby gives direct access to the double garage.

Bedroom 4/5 was originally designed as two bedrooms. The separate windows, radiators and entrances would allow the division to be reinstated with ease, creating a five bedroom house.

Millbrook House is situated in the quiet and little known hamlet of Cocksford found along a winding lane from the village of Stutton. Because there is no through road Cocksford itself is very peaceful but, being close to the A64 and the A1, has the advantage of excellent transport links to York, Leeds and beyond. The thriving market town of Tadcaster and the acclaimed Tadcaster Grammar School lie within easy reach.

Tadcaster 3 miles, A1 4 miles, York 10 miles, Leeds 12 miles. (Distances approximate)

Services: Mains water and electricity, private drainage.
