This exceptional property was originally four brick and flint cottages built 200 years ago but subsequently converted into one Grade II listed detached house. Extended in 2013 by the current owners, the house has been modernised to a very high standard whilst retaining much of its period character. Approached from the front by a brick path, edged with lavender and standard roses, the wisteria clad porch leads to the front door. The bright entrance hall has a pretty, antique tiled floor. To the right, the magnificent kitchen / breakfast room was created in 2015 and provides a wonderful heart of the home. Installed by Top Notch Kitchens, the painted units have black feathered marble work surfaces, a gas range cooker with an extractor fan over and Mandarin stone tiled floor. To the side is an island unit with power for additional storage and a breakfast bar plus an area for seating or casual dining, with a wood burner set within an attractive surround. From the kitchen, the tiled floor continues into the generous size utility room which has plumbing for appliances and multiple storage cupboards. A further door to the rear lobby, which has cupboards housing the gas boiler and hot water cylinder, provides exterior access to the side of the house. The dining room, accessed from the entrance hall, has double aspect windows and a double sided Hunter wood burner and in turn leads into a glazed garden room which was constructed in 2012 to link to the magnificent oak frame barn which is now the main reception room. This is a stunning room with a beamed, vaulted ceiling and multiple windows and glazed doors enabling views and access onto the York flagstone terrace and garden beyond. The principle ground floor rooms benefit from under floor heating. A cloakroom with wc and hand basin completes the downstairs accommodation. On the first floor, the master bedroom has triple aspect windows, an en suite shower room and large dressing area with bespoke cupboards by Stuart Linford. There are two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom which all share the family bathroom and a separate shower room. There is a study area on the landing with useful storage cupboards. The house benefits from gas central heating and a water softener.

Electric timber entrance gates give access to the wide gravelled drive, with parking for several vehicles, and to the double garage with electric doors. The beautifully landscaped garden creates a perfect setting for the house and gives a wonderful sense of seclusion and privacy. The large area of lawn is edged by flower beds with a range of attractive planting and hedging. The entire .45 acre plot is enclosed by a boundary wall. There is an interesting range of outbuildings adjacent to the main house which are also listed. Originally housing a kiln for brick making, there is a well which would have provided the water, now protected by a grille. At one end is an open loggia area, ideal for outdoor dining. The remaining building is used for storage but could have potential for conversion, subject to pp. There is a large log store behind the house.
