Full description

Tenure: Freehold


This deceptively spacious accommodation is set in grounds of approximately one third of an acre. The property is set back from the road in an idyllic country setting yet is within 200 yards of the main road. A well maintained lane allows easy access which is shared with a riding school behind the property and the neighbouring house.

Approaching the house

From the lane, enter via a private gate into a large forecourt, which can easily house numerous vehicles. Immediately ahead on entering, is a vast storage shed with a built in office space and a toilet. The building has electric and running water. A brick outbuilding lies to the side, having multitude of uses with double glazed windows, electric and water. Attached to this are two kennels, both having indoor and outdoor runs.

Turning left into the garden there is a lawn area with a fence enclosing a pond with a bridge and water fountain. There are floodlights to illuminate the garden on an evening, which is surrounded by trees. Access across the bridge through the trees to reach the rear part of the garden or there is an alternative path to the side. This takes you into the orchard area, which houses mature apple trees, plums and a vast array of raspberry, black and red currant bushes.

There is a hen hut also. Heading further down the garden there is a further large lawn area where one can sit and take in the wonderful views of the Yorkshire Wolds. The flower borders are well stocked with many varieties of plants and flowers.There is also a greenhouse. A further lawn area of garden winds around the side of the house.

Entering the house via the main door into the lobby. The annexe lies to the left, the main house to the right. On entering the annexe, you first come into the fitted kitchen. This leads through into the spacious yet cosy lounge. French windows are fitted in this room to give a lovely view of the garden and pond area. A double bedroom and bathroom with bath, shower and inbuilt storage space completes the annexe.

Heading into the main house, you enter the utility which houses the washer, dryer and a sink with fitted cupboards underneath. This leads left to the hallway and staircase with cloakroom underneath. Straight ahead from the utility is the lovely living kitchen with built in wood bench seating, wooden fitted kitchen and multi fuel wood burner with a brick chimney surround.

It is a real family room. The sitting room houses an open fire and is spacious yet cosy. French window on to the side garden.

Heading up the stairs you turn right into the master bedroom. A very good size it has an en-suite with bath and shower and a walk in wardrobe providing very useful storage space. There are beautiful views from the windows on two sides of the room.

A further bathroom lies at the top of the stairs with fitted cupboards and an attractive, neutral finish.

Two further double bedrooms provide plenty of space and some built in storage cupboards. The smallest room has a built in single wooden cabin bed with ample storage underneath. It has a beautiful view of the adjoining countryside.

The property benefits from having had full new rewiring, oil central heating system, double glazing and cesspit all renewed within the last 9 years. The annexe is also 9 years old.

Having an ideal setting, the property benefits from being in the countryside, yet minutes from the main road, which is a great comfort in adverse weather conditions. The historical village of Stamford bridge is a few minutes drive away or can be easily reached by foot or bicycle.

The village houses all necessary conveniences, shops, cafes, library, swimming pool, restaurants, library, doctors and a primary school. A number of secondary schools lie within a convenient distance. There is also a good bus service.

The beautiful city of York is only 10 miles with all its historical splendour, shopping and culture. The Wolds are right on the doorstep for walking and exploring and the North York moors. The seaside resorts of Whitby and Scarborough are within an hour.
