Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A superb Grade II listed Georgian property forming part of the original Allerthorpe Hall and retaining a number of fine period features. During the Second World War it served as an RAF Officers Mess and Women's Auxiliary Air Force quarters for Pocklington Air Base. The current owners have undertaken substantial restoration and improvements in their time including new central heating system, new south roof slope and insulation, new rear soffit and restored original cast iron rain water goods, new porch roof and new fibreglass garage roof and timber doors.

A substantial panelled front door opens to the entrance porch with tiled floor and double doors opening to the reception hall/sitting room. This is a wonderful space with log burning stove, parquet wood flooring dating from the late 1930's, high wood-panelled ceiling and window seats below the two sash windows. The drawing room provides a real 'wow factor' being of generous proportions with large sash windowed bay overlooking the garden, impressive carved stone fireplace in Tudor style with stone hearth and high ceilings with geometrical Elizabethan-style decoration.

The dining kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units, two stainless steel sinks, built in double oven, four ring gas hob, plumbing for dishwasher and washing machine and dining area with French doors to the garden. In addition there is a cupboard housing the Worcester Bosch gas condenser boiler which was installed in 2011. To finish off the ground floor is the original Georgian staircase hall with study area, French doors to the rear garden, parquet flooring, and a door to a cloakroom with WC, basin and cupboard.

The staircase turns at half landing level with tall round headed sash window and early 19th century decorative plaster frieze. The master bedroom is another superb room with open fireplace having marble surround sat on a marble hearth, large fitted wardrobes, two windows overlooking the garden and a door to the bathroom. The bathroom has a corner bath with shower over, WC, basin, airing cupboard and door to the second bedroom. This room was originally a dressing room with fitted cupboards, pine floor boards and door to the staircase. The third bedroom has parquet wood flooring and an early 19th century decorative plaster frieze.

Externally the property is approached via a gravel driveway with off road parking and access to the garage with power, light and door to the rear. The gardens are south facing, part walled and laid to lawn with well stocked borders and stone flagged patio.
