Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A most interesting Grade ll Listed Georgian period property of great character standing in fabulous mature gardens of approximately ¾ acre.
This indeed is a true village property possibly one of the oldest within this much favoured village. It is highly individual and certainly quirky in its own right, displaying an abundance of nooks and crannies indicative of the age. A very much loved home for our client, who has spent the last forty some years there. Today the property has the benefit of recent general maintenance works; this includes a newly installed damp proof course to the drawing room and day room, together with work to the chimneys and the driveway. The decorator has just completed the redecoration of these rooms.
The accommodation in details offers in brief:
A reception hallway, a drawing room, dining room, study, day room and breakfast room together with a kitchen, cloakroom, boot room and larder.
To the first floor lies a split level landing with access out to a conservatory where superb views of the garden can be enjoyed. There is a master bedroom suite, three further bedrooms, and two bathrooms.
Externally lie extensive gardens. The south facing wall in the main garden makes it very sheltered and quiet. There is a full range of outdoor store areas, a vegetable and soft fruit garden, a carport and garage.
This truly is a wonderful home enjoying a beautiful position adjacent to the church. Admittedly there is room to stamp one’s own mark and carry out a programme of improvement works, however we do feel this is reflected in the asking sum and allows a margin for such.

Elvington is a great village location for every age group as there is something available for everyone. There is a village hall, sports centre, hairdressers, church, public house, infant primary school, medical practice and sports hall. The village is very big on community and there is a programme of activities to become involved I as one wishes.
The village green comes is very central to the village and used for May Day, the scarecrow competition and of course Christmas .It is also the venue for the annual church/village fete. This is just a sample of what is available within the village.
To summarize: A wonderful, warm and inviting period home, standing in wonderful grounds.
