One of the most exquisite things about The Coach House (and believe me there are many) is simply standing in the family room, looking out at those fabulous south facing gardens and taking in the view. Naturally, you'll be aware of the beautiful high ceilings rising above you like a church and the huge picture windows at the front and rear give a most remarkable feeling of light and space. However, its the feeling you'll get when you've bought this home, that will move you.

Yes, if you want a true statement home, this is for you.

Built around 1750 by the renowned architect John Carr, The Coach House may have provided a welcome stop along the original Great North Road. Aberford was originally the crossing point of the Cock River (now reduced in volume to the Cock Beck) and considered the mid-way point between London and Edinburgh.

Cock Beck now lays to your left as you enter the expansive driveway through the electric gates to the front of the house. Achieving a rare balance of being expansive and yet secluded is some feat and yet The Coach House manages this with ease.

Entering the house, you are immediately aware of the time and expense that has been spent in recent years; the entire property commands an exceptionally high level of finish and all improvements have been carried out with considerable attention to detail. The Coach House succeeds in retaining its original period charm and provides excellent accommodation for modern day family living.

The separate Butlers Residence lends itself to self-contained accommodation for families with older children, guests or used as an office or gym.

Step outside and it takes no imagination to picture yourself, friends and family in the beautiful gardens. Whether it's a large gathering on the large slate patio, something more intimate under the gorgeous pergola or by yourself in the enclosed garden next to the pond. Strangely though, whilst the house occupied a significant plot of land, you always feel that sense of privacy and seclusion.

For fitness lovers, there is a host of cycle trails, runs and walks. The nearest gym can be found at the new Thorpe Park development which is just a short drive away.

Aberford itself is a popular village approximately halfway between Leeds and York; about 6 miles south of the market town of Wetherby providing a host of daily facilities.

There are excellent schools in the area of all denominations together with a lovely mix of pubs, shops and a newsagent.

Aberford is readily accessible to the A1(M) link road and A64 providing excellent access to Yorkshires commercial centres.

The owners love: The space and versatility of the house. The privacy afforded to you when you're at home.

We love: Those amazing high ceilings with the exposed beams. The location and convenience of being central to so much.
