Tenure: Freehold

Substantially and competitively reduced to generate a quicker than average sale, is this stunningly presented five bedroom period detached residence, which is arguably one of the finest period homes in the area spanning over 200 years of history.

Wellhead House was originally part of the Chapelthorpe Hall Estates. A sympathetic conversion and subsequent improvements have created a substantial and elegant home with an excellent degree of privacy.

Situated at the head of Hall Lane, this stunning period home is approached by electric gates along a private drive that gently sweeps through beautifully maintained and well manicured gardens. The front of this fine house faces South East and enjoys a large paved terrace, which is slightly elevated and ideally placed to fully appreciate the care that has been lavished on the grounds. The front door opens into a spacious dining hall at the centre of the house. To one side there is a superbly proportioned living room with an office and a further sitting room/bedroom five with separate entrance of which could be utilised to help create a teenage/granny annex with separate entrance. To the other side there is a stylishly fitted kitchen that leads through into a gorgeous orangery overlooking the terrace providing excellent opportunity for entertaining. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a well appointed wet room/w.c. and a separate utility room. The first floor presented four well proportioned double bedrooms (the guest bedroom has en suite facilities) and a well appointed house bathroom/w.c.

Outside, the driveway culminates in a large parking/turning area and a double garage. Already a substantial home, it should be noted that the property benefits from a detailed planning consent (reference 07/03308/FUL) to replace the current garage with a larger triple garage, a gymnasium and an additional bedroom suite.
