A fantastically spacious home that is believed to have originally started as two farm house workers cottages, now welcomes you into a large entrance hallway with a solid wood staircase to the first floor. A door leads to the light and airy family room with parquet floor, exposed ceiling beams and a wood burner as the main features. This opens up to the sun room area with sliding patio doors out to the rear garden perfect for entertaining and as a space for all the family. Following on from the hall and past the stairway is the main sitting room with a formal dining room adjacent. The dining room benefits from an alcove under the stairs used currently as a study area. The sitting room again benefits from having exposed ceiling beams and a wood burner set in a brick fireplace as the main features with a door leading out to the front aspect. The sitting room is great for both relaxing and entertaining especially as it has a bar area with space for bar stools so the incoming purchaser could be their very own landlord.
Back to the main reception hall and off to the left is a boiler room and a separate WC with a hand wash basin. This hall leads to the breakfast room with ample space for a family table and chairs and a door to the rear porch which has double doors out to the rear. The 'country style' cream double aspect kitchen with wood work surfaces enjoys plenty of storage with many base units and wall units including a large electric oven with extractor over, ceramic sink and an island area with space for stools either side. The kitchen benefits from a large utility room which has additional space for all white goods and a door out to a rear patio area.
On the first floor there is a large triple aspect master bedroom with its own spacious en-suite with a spa bath, separate shower cubicle, two hand wash basins and a WC. Adjacent to this off the landing is the family bathroom and FOUR additional double bedrooms providing a superb space for a growing family.
The outside space of this property is truly amazing with 0.7 acres (STS) which includes a shingle driveway which has parking for several vehicles and a gateway on either side of this chocolate box cottage frontage. To the right is a 5 bar gate which leads to a courtyard garden area and a vegetable patch. To the left is a brick arch way with gate leading to a patio area overlooking the pond which attracts ducks and an array of other wildlife. The pond is surrounded by picket fencing making it safe for children to play. The garden expands out to mainly lawn and has a large workshop/summer house which is currently used as a gym area and storage. There is a small summer house and the garden is surrounded and safe with a variety of close board panel fencing and mature trees, including various fruit trees surrounding. There is a private gate to the rear which leads out to a public path down to the 'Staithe' providing an idyllic location and access.
