About this property
A rare opportunity to purchase a delightful detached family home in the sought after village of Askham Bryan.
DESCRIPTION Originally built in 1978 to be the executive home for a well renowned local builder, the ownership changed during construction and has been in the same hands since.
Set back on the Main Street in the centre of Askham Bryan, this property offers purchasers the opportunity to acquire a home in a desirable location, suitable for a family, and yet with the chance to enhance and extend due to the property’s configuration.
The flexible accommodation, which has been well maintained over the years, briefly comprises: to the ground floor; delightful and expansive light reception hall with beautiful parquet flooring and return staircase leading to galleried landing, understairs storage cupboard, cloakroom/w.c, large full depth sitting room with fire place, bow window to front elevation and patio door to the rear, study, kitchen, delightful conservatory and huge dining room.
To the first floor is the large master bedroom suite with modern shower room, three further double bedrooms, house bathroom and separate w/c. There is a large attic room accessed from the landing which could potentially be converted to two further bedrooms and bathroom subject to the necessary consents.
OUTSIDE The property is well set back from Main Street and approached via a return driveway, with attractive well-stocked central shrubbery. There is a paved path that leads down the side of the house to the delightful rear garden. This is south facing and has an enormous amount of privacy. With mature beds, ponds and trickling water feature, this really is a tranquil haven.
There is an attached double garage which can be accessed from the rear garden. The garage itself has a modern electric roller shutter door and beyond the garage is a useful workshop.
LOCATION The property is situated in the village of Askham Bryan, a desirable village south west of York, within easy access of the A64 making it ideal for commuters to York, Leeds and beyond.
