Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This pretty three bedroom village home has been skilfully extended and sympathetically renovated to provide deceptively spacious accommodation along with a substantial outbuilding (over 1000 sqft) and extensive lawned gardens - in all just over 0.4 acres.
POTENTIAL FOR FURTHER EXTENSION OR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT SUBJECT TO CONSENTS.

This attractive period village home has formed a part of Tockwith's pretty and historic street scene since the mid 18th Century and has been the subject of a sympathetic programme of improvements and extensions by our clients to create a deceptively spacious property with extensive outbuildings and garden areas, in all amounting to just under half an acre.

During its life Bluebell House has been occupied as a hostelry with stables and a village store but following careful works carried out since 1998 it now provides tastefully appointed family accommodation with a wealth of exposed period features and bespoke joinery throughout also benefitting from gas fired heating and double glazing.

An entrance vestibule leads to a flexible range of reception rooms including a lounge and separate snug, family room / dining room and a rear hall with guest cloakroom. At the rear of the property lies a superb garden room overlooking a private rear courtyard with an adjoining well-appointed kitchen, utility room and walk-in pantry.

There are three excellent double bedrooms and a house bathroom on the first floor with undoubted potential for the creation of additional bedroom and bathroom space subject to the relevant planning and building regulations.

A gated side driveway leads to the aforementioned private courtyard which provides sheltered seating areas and access to a substantial detached outbuilding (over 1000 sqft gross internal floor area). This is currently utilised as a double garage and separate substantial workshop but there is excellent scope for the creation of additional dependent relative accommodation or home office space.

Finally beyond the garage lies a superbly landscaped lawned garden area (in all 0.35 acres including the garage/workshop), these are predominantly lawned with mature fruit trees and ornamental borders and once again there is latent residential development potential subject to the relevant consents.

Tockwith remains a popular choice for the family purchaser as a direct result of its excellent range of amenities including a highly regarded primary school, medical centre, Costcutter store and choice of public houses. Purchasers with older children will appreciate the choice of secondary education in all sectors. The village falls within the catchment of both Tadcaster Grammar School and King James School, Knaresborough, whilst private education is available in York, Harrogate and Thorpe Underwood. There are rail links to Leeds and York from Cattal (3 miles) and the A1/M1 link road brings the major commercial centres of West and North Yorkshire within easy travelling distance.

Proceeding from Wetherby towards York on the B1224 take the second turning into Tockwith on Kirk Lane, left into Westfield Road where Bluebell House will be identified on the right hand side by our For Sale board.
