Full description

This magnificent Grade 2 listed building, arranged in over 5000 square feet is steeped in history dating back to1830 and was once the residence of the vicar of Driffield and his sixteen staff. Continuing the religious theme, the present owners transported pine flooring from Beckenham Church in Kent during the restoration process. The property was extended in the 1880's under the direction of the renowned architect Temple Moore for his future wife's uncle, Cannon Newton. The three storey red brick and stucco extensions are in the Queen Anne style with wood mullioned bay windows and pedimented dormers. It was then completely refurbished and tastefully restored by the current owners in 2004 from its then derelict state, retaining many of its features including original leaded windows. It was listed in1994 and is recorded in the East Yorkshire version of Pevsner's Guide to the Buildings of England.
The imposing late Georgian property is set back from the road and is approached via a sweeping driveway around a well-manicured expanse of lawn and mature trees. To the side of the property is a garden terrace leading from the kitchen with steps down onto an enclosed patio and lawn. With the addition of a delightful summer house in the grounds this really would make the ideal home for the growing family and be perfect for multi generational living.
On entering the grounds of this perfect country home it is hard to believe the amenities available to you within such a short distance. Perfect for the sports fanatics with Rugby, Cricket, Golf, Football & Tennis clubs nearby along with Chesney Equestrian Centre just a short walk away, there are also excellent road links, railway station and regular bus service, with all the usual amenities you would expect within the town centre.
The accommodation is entered through solid wood double doors into the grand hall with oak staircase to a galleried landing looking down onto the vast hallway beneath. From the hall are doors off to the drawing room and sitting room which in turn leads to a well equipped living kitchen covering the whole of the East wing with the addition of utility room and downstairs cloakroom to the rear. To the first floor the landing separates off to East & West wings offering bedrooms one, two and three, with two ensuites and two house bathrooms. Two separate staircases lead to the second floor providing bedrooms four, five, six & seven.
This beautifully presented period family home is well worth an early internal inspection to fully appreciate the quality of accommodation on offer. To arrange a viewing please call Hunters, Pocklington on 01759 487007.
