Distinguished Georgian village house in a fine East Yorkshire village

The entire property has been restored and updated with underfloor heating to the new extension and bathrooms, column radiators, bespoke panelling and high specification fixtures and fittings throughout.
The 32 ft open plan kitchen/dining/living room comfortably accommodates a sitting area and family-sized dining table, and full-height bifold doors open west onto the garden terrace; it is an ideal inside/outside entertaining space. The kitchen itself has an island unit with breakfast bar, granite worktops, integrated appliances and a large utility room alongside. There are three further well-proportioned reception rooms, two with French doors opening south onto a further sheltered terrace with lawned area beyond. On the first floor, four double bedrooms are accessed from the wide central landing. The principal bedroom has fitted furniture to two sides as well as a window seat; alongside is an en suite bathroom.
The triple garage has electric up-and-over doors and an attached store; in front of it are three parking spaces. A garden gate within a high brick wall gives access to the property and leads to the main entrance. The gardens of Southfield extend to the south and west of the property, overlooked by the principal rooms. Accessed from the bifold doors of the new extension is a paved courtyard that continues as gravel in front of the original Georgian house. Central stone steps lined with clipped box hedging and lawned terraces descend to the summer house where there are further areas of lawn, paved terraces, mature trees, shrubs, herbaceous borders and raised beds. There is a magnificent pergola walkway draped in climbing rose, a wildlife pond and a productive vegetable patch with greenhouse. The whole is secure and private being surrounded by high clipped hedges and mellow brick walls.
Roos is a popular, rural village with a traditional red telephone box surrounded by wide open farmland, just two miles from the beach and half an hour from Spurn Point National Nature Reserve. Its most famous resident is the author JRR Tolkien who lived there during the First World War. This thriving village offers a wide range of services and amenities including a primary school, GP surgery, butcher & baker, beauty salon and village store; there is also the Roos Arms, a public house, and the parish church of All Saints which is a Grade I listed building. The nearby coastal town of Withernsea has the many amenities expected of a small market town. Kingston upon Hull and Hymers College lies some 15 miles away to the west.
