Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Offered to the market is this substantial, former 3 bed south-facing and absolutely unique Grade II Listed, freehold heritage townhouse mews constructed from Tadcaster ashlar and grit stone, atop with its own 8 day 4-faced Clock Tower and weather vane. Designed by architect Decimus Burton 1840-41, this was originally the Butler’s residence and formed part of one of the last classical mansions of this style to be built in the North of England.

Recently fully refurbished to an impeccable standard with gas central heating, the ground floor reveals a marvellous entrance hall with archway access to kitchen, separate open plan lounge and dining room with walk in utility cupboard and beautifully wide staircase. The stately ball-room style flexible living space comprises real oak floors, cornicing, working shutters, real marble and cast iron fireplace with double aspect (including French doors) to secluded gardens, fields and folly beyond. The bright separate fully fitted kitchen features LED, chandelier and worktop lighting, Neff and BOSCH appliances, integral hob/extractor, fridge freezer, 2 ovens/grill, hose/mixer tap, larder cupboards and real stone floor and wall tiles.

To the first floor, luxury velvet carpets dress 2 (formerly 3) bedrooms, the latest master of which spans the full width of the house with a double southerly aspect. The exquisite Savoy bathroom suite, controllable underfloor bathroom heating, towel radiator and dimmable lighting features a full roof height ceiling with 2 double glazed VELUX roof lights from which to view the clock and mezzanine access to another roof space.

A second double-sized bedroom comprises 2 fully fitted wardrobes, double sash aspect also and a second staircase leading to a contained second floor yoga space, further stone mezzanine and ladder access to a third floor outside seated deck within the clock tower itself from which to privately enjoy a delightful 360 degree aspect of the entire estate, whilst protected from the elements above. Access to the winding room above within the clock faces is gained by the folding ladder there present. Note: lighting and power is fed to all floors.

Its vast private formal garden to the rear spans 1405 square feet (130 square meters) and has been cultivated for year round pleasure. It can certainly be enjoyed all day as all of the property's prime living space and huge restored sash windows are of a southerly aspect to fields.

Outside, the home also benefits from both a detached private single garage with standing as well as courtyard parking, and gravelled overflow parking for guests. Further an adjacent rear shared garden shed and tap hidden by the trees.

In summary, with its high ceilings, late Victorian grandeur and Italianate villa style, this extraordinary residence is quite special and would perfectly suit a retired couple, professionals or heritage investor looking to enjoy privacy and the finer things in life.
