Looking for that elusive destination home and don't want to have to compromise? You won't have to with this gem in the village of Bempton. There's so much scope and space to this amazing property that it can be anything you want it to be. Don't take our word for it - come and see for yourself.

Every once in a while we come across a property that is that little bit special and Bempton House is one of them. Beyond its Georgian facade lies a wonderful family home that has been beautifully and empathetically refurbished. Dating back to the 1700s, this Grade II listed building was originally a farmhouse and now also encompasses what was once the butchers shop. It has retained many of its original charm and features throughout - namely fire places, ornate coving, window seats, staircase - the list goes on.
In addition to the main house, set back beyond the orangery, an annex has been added. This contains a games room, gymnasium, sauna and small kitchenette serving a barbecue area.

There's a lovely private,walled, garden to the rear - east facing so it enjoys a great deal of sunshine. A glorious mix of lawn, flagstone patio areas - doubling up as superb barbecue areas - a vegetable garden, water feature and mature shrubs - in short something for everyone to enjoy and a perfect backdrop for entertaining on both small and large scale.
The gravel driveway to the side provides ample parking for a number of cars.

Of course, as always with houses of this calibre, it is very difficult to convey on paper just how how special this property is but hopefully the reader will get a good understanding from the photographs accompanying this description.

Firstly though, a little more about Bempton. This picturesque village is on the East coast, just north of Bridlington and less than 3 miles from other places of interest such as Flamborough and Sewerby Hall. The village itself enjoys a thriving community spirit. The village hall is just a year old. It also has its own post office, school, pub, pond and railway station and is served by a regular bus route. It is popular with ornithogists (who flock to the famous Bempton cliffs), cyclists and dog walkers alike. Numerous Blue plaques can be seen dotted around the village highlighting historical points of interest and this lovely village is developing into a very disirable place to call home.

Let's return to the house and take a walk around.
The downstairs comprises hallway, lounge, dining room, kitchen, sun room and cloakroom.
A flagstone passageway runs across the back of the house from the kitchen to the orangery and rooms running off here include the utility (formerly the butchers shop) plus an office.
The orangery leads to the first of two garages. The one directly off here, having been a barn and a boat store in the past, is a great place for further development if you require more living space.
There's also access to the potting shed and annex from here whilst a a side doorway leads out onto the gravel driveway where the second garage can be found. This garage has the benefit of an electric up and over door.

Take the main staircase off the hallway to the first floor landing. Here you'll discover 4 double bedrooms plus the house shower room.
The Master bedroom is every girls dream come true. Not only does it have its very own walk in dressing room but it also has its own en-suite bathroom. This bathroom has been recently refurbished to a high standard and boasts the luxury of a separate shower cubicle along with a paneled bath. The hidden beauty of this room is that it has an interconnecting door from the landing so it can be used as a house bathroom as and when required.
Of the three remaining bedrooms, one has an en-suite shower room and one an en-suite W/C, whilst the remaining one has its very own sitting area with secondary staircase off which leads down directly into the kitchen.

Let's turn our attention to the annex.
This fantastic area presently serves as a games room, beyond which is a gymnasium. Also within this area is a sauna and shower plus the bonus of a kitchenette that serves the adjoining barbecue area. To all intents and purposes your very own fitness suite. To someone with vision this opens up a whole world of opportunity as the present owners have already obtained full planning permission to redevelop this area.

As, we are sure you will agree, this property is so much more than a wonderful family home. The permutations and scope for development are endless. For someone with vision this is an amazing and unique opportunity - could it be for you?
