5 bedroom detached house for sale

Skipton Bridge, Thirsk, North Yorkshire


Property Description

Full description

A rare opportunity to purchase this absolutely fabulous Grade II listed Georgian & Victorian villa, renovated by the current vendors in recent years to reveal stunning interiors of over 4700 square feet in size and sat in around 3 1/2 acres of formal gardens and paddocks, situated in a highly desirable location in the village of Skipton Bridge.

Approached via decorative iron gates, a front gravel driveway suitable for multiple vehicles leads to an imposing front door. An impressive entrance hall with original tiled flooring branches off on to three lovely reception rooms all with feature fireplaces and a superb breakfast kitchen complete with granite work surfaces, integrated appliances, ample fitted wooden units, breakfast island, pantry and adjoining utility room. A rear hall leads through via a lobby with w/c into the Victorian accommodation - a converted barn consisting of a simply stunning family room with solid oak flooring and doors which lead out onto an extremely private, enclosed lawned garden, flagged patio and decked seating area, garaging and outbuildings. The family room also has a stylish shower room and a feature spiral staircase which ascends to a rather impressive vaulted games room with oak flooring and a fully insulated cinema room with advanced multimedia equipment available via separate negotiation. There is also a fully fitted office with bespoke wooden units. The house benefits from three well proportioned double bedrooms - bedroom two with the benefit of an en-suite bathroom and the master with a lovely jack-and-jill bathroom with luxury double shower and free standing roll top bath. There is also a fully fitted dressing room. A well styled house bathroom serves the other bedroom. To the second floor, there are two additional good sized double bedrooms. The Georgian part of the property also has the advantage of extensive, fully tanked cellars ideal for further storage.
'Skipton House' has an expanse of external space surrounding it, beautifully manicured and re-modelled in recent years to include a parterre garden, previously mentioned enclosed courtyard garden, hard standing ideal for a horse box or further parking, orchard and stunning, flat paddock land backing onto further open fields. The property also benefits from having fishing rights.

Directions - From the A1(M) junction 50 proceed towards Thirsk on the A61. Pass through Baldersby, proceed over the river at Skipon on Swale and the entrance to Skipton House can be found almost immediately on the left hand side.

Viewing - Strictly by appointment through Myrings - Telephone 01423 566 400.
