2 bedroom semi-detached house for sale73 Station House, Helhoughton
Semi-detached former Station Master's house with superbly renovated 2 bedroom accommodation and delightful gardens bordering woodland.
As it's name suggests, 73 Station House, was once the Station Master's house for Raynham Park Station built in the 1880s by the railway company Midland & Great Northern. The property is semi-detached to the former Signalman's Cottage and fronts onto the neighbouring former station platform. However, since the demise of the railways, the property has become a private home and has been lovingly renovated by it's current owners.
There is interesting accommodation briefly comprising a brick and oak framed entrance porch, bespoke 'Simply Kitchens' kitchen with separate utility/cloakroom, dining room, sitting room with a large bay window overlooking the gardens, with 2 bedrooms, 1 with en-suite bath, and a spacious family shower room upstairs. The property has been authentically restored and stylishly renovated whilst retaining period features such as high ceilings and deep skirtings to most rooms, open fireplaces, tiled floors, exposed floorboards and beams but with the benefit of modern living including oil-fired central heating and UPVC framed windows.
Outside, there are delightful gardens amounting to approximately 1/4 acre (subject to survey) which wrap around the property to 3 sides and border woodland. There is also a useful detached brick built workshop, which still retains the original laundry copper and fire grate, and a further storage room.
