Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Sauveterre is situated in the lovely village of Thornton-le-Clay on the outskirts of York. Set back from the road with a large gravel driveway this house looks grand from the outside and certainly lives up to expectations once inside. So much so it is due to feature on BBC Two's Escape To The Country.

A beautiful open hallway greets you on entering, finished with solid oak flooring and spot lit from the ceiling. From here you have access to the downstairs living area on offer.

A lovely double room with superb en-suite immediately awaits. With views to the front of the house and countryside views for as far as the eye can see. The en-suite is finished in classy grey tiling with a lovely walk in wet room style shower and is completed with feature basin and WC.

At the bottom of the hall is a handy utility area, ideal for the washing machine and tumble dryer, also housing the oil fired boiler and is perfect for hiding away all you don't want on show. A nice office space is also situated off the hall, a nice space to read or work from home

Completing the living space downstairs is the grand Master Suite. This bedroom is enormous and with two lovely large windows to the front is light and bright too. With space for a dresser and the built in wardrobes this is everyone's dream bedroom. The en-suite bathroom finishes this room nicely. With travertine tiles throughout, a large bath and walk in, wet room style shower, feature wash basin and WC this en-suite is absolute luxury. With uninterrupted views, this is just the most perfect place to wake up.

Access to the side of the property is granted via a UPVC door leading outside but we're going to move into the stunning kitchen...

When we say stunning we absolutely mean stunning! With a feature island in the middle of the room to include, induction hob, overhead extractor, a nifty water jet with sink and a breakfast bar; this kitchen is just waiting for the family chef to cook up a storm. With plenty of work surface space and cabinets too not only is this feature kitchen top spec, but extremely functional. To the corner of the kitchen is a very unique corner set double oven and directly adjacent the sink is situated perfectly under the window looking out to the back garden.

Completing the kitchen is a nice separate dining space with ample room to seat eight people or more. The immediate outlook is glorious. South facing, double sliding doors open to the garden bringing the outside in, perfect for summer entertaining.

From the kitchen, walk through into the garden room. With double doors leading onto the South facing, terraced patio, there aren't many more perfect places to fill with friends and family, or equally to take a moment and get stuck into a good book. So flexible but however you choose to use this room it is sure to put a smile on your face.

The main lounge links the garden room through double doors. This house flows so well as you are never far from the action at all. The grandness continues with this L shaped room with space for all the family to sit. Lovely and light and bright too with windows to all sides and of course the garden room brings a lot of light in too.

The downstairs landing is right at the heart of the house linking both kitchen and living room together. Very open, with a grand turning staircase the location of the upstairs access has been thought through very carefully.

As you walk up the stairs the first room that greets you is the fourth bedroom. Split into two this room has been cleverly designed, with room for an additional office or reading room or perhaps a child's play room and sleeping quarters at the far end. Additional storage can be gained from the under eaves stores. This room is currently used as a twin guest room but could easily be a double also. Velux windows open up to views of open countryside which is a real delight.

At the top of the landing is a neat cloaks cupboard for all the seasons coats and shoes. The real treat is the view from the landing window. Framing the countryside perfectly, the view will change with the seasons and sun or snow it's always going to be special!

The third bathroom of the house is off the landing too. In keeping with the high spec finish of the house you have the benefit of travertine tiles throughout, a feature pedestal sink, L shaped bath with shower above and WC.

The upstairs living space here is completed with a final double bedroom. Views to the side of the house and space for plenty of furniture too.

To the outside of the house is a handy single garage with work bench space and side access to the property. To the front of the house is a sweeping gravel driveway and room to park five or even six cars!

The garden is a real joy with views over open countryside all to be enjoyed from the patio terrace which runs the full length of the back of the house. Perfect for a sun-downer whilst watching the sun set across the horizon.

This house is truly fabulous and needs to be viewed to appreciate just how much is on offer. I look forward to showing you round!
