Wishart Estate Agents are delighted to present to the market this greatly extended 1930's semi detached, family home in the sought after village of Copmanthorpe.

Externally this home boasts a large garden with various seating areas, two lawns, a pond, vegetable garden, workshop, green house, shed and two log stores. The recently replaced, block set drive provides ample parking by the elevated, easy maintenance, yet attractively planted frontage. The open aspect beyond the A64 across Pike Hills Golf Course and Askham Bogs offers a shifting view with the changing of the seasons. The property is offered for sale with no onward chain.

Entrance - Below the elevated, arched brick porch synonymous with this style of period property, a reclaimed 1930s external timber door now boasts a modern colour scheme which contrasts perfectly with the replica, leaded glass windows. Reproduced in the original style, the recently replaced side windows were locally commissioned with stain glass expert Christine Press. Mounted within double glazed sealed units upon completion they now add a stylish and practical welcome to this individual home.

Entrance Hall - Internally, a light and bright entrance hall features original three quarter Oak panelling, re-modernised with a light colour, stylish, eggshell finish. There is also a radiator below a decorative cover, dual telephone points and stairs to the first floor.

From the entrance hall the ground floor toilet features a two piece cloak room suite to include low level WC and corner basin. A solid Oak floor in rich tones and extractor fan complete this area.

Living Room - The open plan living room features three separate areas, currently laid out as two seating areas. The characterful features including deep skirting boards, coving and high ceilings are perfectly complemented by a dcor of neutral colours and a feature wall. The brand new carpets add to the turn key condition of this home. To the front of the property, the formal lounge offers elevated views from a large bay window. Opening to the family sitting room, a show stopping, open fire with multi-fuel stove and carved, timber surround offers the main focal point to the room and an additional window to the side elevation allows natural light to flood in. Custom made, Purple Heart Wood shelves provide storage and an attractive display area.

Breakfast Kitchen - Double timber, glazed internal doors open from the living area into the breakfast Kitchen. Recently replaced, the Stonefield kitchen features a range of modern base and wall units with contrasting, hard wearing, work preparation areas over the 1.5 bowl Crystal White ceramic sink and drainer add to the farmhouse style of the kitchen. Creating the main focal point, the Aga as well as being the main cooking appliance, provides the kitchen with a comforting warmth. Being spacious enough to take a breakfast table, the kitchen really is the heart of the home. Space is also provided for a freestanding fridge freezer and washing machine. Further character has been added with the use of display shelving and two internally lit, frosted glass display cabinets. A rustic, re-claimed, dairy tile floor, brand new composite external door, window to the side and two ceiling lights complete the breakfast kitchen.

Garden Room - Opening from the kitchen, and therefore providing the much sought after open plan kitchen, dining, seating arrangement which has become a pre-requisite for todays modern family, the garden room is a spectacular addition to the home.

Master Bedroom - Located to the front of the property, the master bedroom features detailed coving and deep timber skirting boards. The bay window provides additional light and space as well as views toward the golf course.

Bedroom Four - To the second floor the fourth bedroom is light and bright, boasting dual aspect views via two large dormer windows. The pine flooring complements the joinery and exposed beams adding a feeling of warmth and character to the room. Various storage spaces are provided within the eaves.

Outside Area - The elevated frontage coupled with the hedge and planting adds a degree of privacy. A recently laid, block set driveway provides ample parking for up to three vehicles.

An Indian stone patio connects the garden room to the external areas. Almost an extension of the room when the double doors are open, the south facing patio seating area is a private sun trap perfect for alfresco dining in the warmer months. Before reaching the first lawn, with its well-stocked flower beds a footpath leads past a timber workshop benefitting from power and light, and a 12ft x 8ft greenhouse. Beyond the first lawn, a timber pergola is adorned in miniature trailing roses at this time of year. Below the pergola the pond and wood chip area enjoy a more shaded spot within this south facing garden. The side footpath flows down past the second lawn to the vegetable garden. Numerous, well established raised beds provide excellent growing conditions for a range of plants and vegetables. Should you really seek a piece of the good life chickens are kept toward the end of some of the neighbouring gardens. At the end of the garden, another shed provides further storage alongside a large lawnmower store.
