Offers In Excess Of £800,000
4 bedroom detached house
Detached period cottage elegantly extended with a delightful garden, outbuildings and parking, located within the heart of a glorious Howardian Hills village between York and Malton.
This is a jewel of a Victorian cottage enjoying pole position in one of the most beloved of villages in the Howardian Hills. Detached and sitting in a generous plot with a southerly orientation this traditional, double fronted, stone built cottage has recently undergone a skilful programme of extension and renovation. The magnificent rear extension has transformed the accommodation through the addition of a 37ft kitchen dining room that connects to the outside as well as a ground floor bedroom suite, formerly part of an outbuilding, that opens to a pretty terrace. With its lovely gardens Chantry Cottage will undoubtedly have a broad appeal.

Chantry Cottage has been updated throughout to create a very comfortable home. There are new windows fitted throughout, many being Accoya sliding sash windows, and the property has been largely re-roofed and rewired with a bespoke lighting system installed. Electrical inspections have been carried out on existing fittings to ensure the highest standards. The Worcester Bosch oil-fired boiler was installed in 2019. Chantry Cottage’s Victorian heritage is evident in the exposed beams, stripped cottage doors, herringbone floor, fireplaces and repointed stone wall in the dining area. Additional character features are column radiators and window shutters.
The light-filled 37ft kitchen dining room has two Velux windows within the double height part-glazed roof and bifold doors that open onto the garden. The bespoke kitchen was designed by Naked Kitchens: there is an island unit providing a breakfast bar; a Rangemaster Professional with induction; and an integrated combi oven, microwave and dishwasher. The bamboo floor has underfloor heating that continues into the utility/laundry room and cloakroom/shower room. The kitchen dining room is semi open plan to the drawing room with its Nordpeis log burning stove and bifold doors opening south onto the garden. The two front reception rooms in the Victorian part of the house both have notable fireplaces with open fires and cast-iron grates. Upstairs, additional natural light has been introduced through skylights in the landing and in one of the two front facing bedrooms. The principal bedroom enjoys south facing views across the rear garden and the large house bathroom is fitted with a walk-in shower and freestanding clawfoot bath. On the ground floor the guest bedroom suite is a double height space with a separate shower room and bedroom with plumbing in place providing the option of a kitchenette. French doors open south to the delightful terrace enclosed by a drystone wall and integrated stone seat.
A timber gate on the eastern boundary gives access to the private drive that leads to the rear and provides parking for up to two cars. The delightful garden lies to the east and south of the house. It ascends gently with winding paths and shaped beds planted for all year colour. Being a former orchard the property has numerous fruit trees scattered within and around its lawn along with herbaceous borders; there are two pear trees, five apple trees and a plum tree. Along with the summerhouse is a part brick, part timber outbuilding at the far boundary.
