Additional Information

The Ives is an attractive, modern, detached house characterised by external white render, zinc cladding and a slate roof. Its interiors are both sophisticated and functional. Underfloor heating has been fitted throughout with polished concrete floors seamlessly extending across the ground floor and Karndean herringbone floors on the first floor. Polished micro-cement plaster walls contribute towards a sleek, harmonious look. The contemporary kitchen and bathrooms are recently fitted and there are built-in speakers in the main living areas and in both bathrooms.

At the heart of the home is the open plan kitchen/dining room and sitting room that extends more than 30 ft and is illuminated with natural light on three sides; there are sliding doors that open in a southerly direction onto the garden, bifold doors that open onto the elevated terrace and full-height windows on facing elevations. The recently fitted contemporary Kuhlmann kitchen with its sleek handless, soft-close units includes quartz work surfaces, a hot water tap, an island unit with induction hob and integrated extractor, and integrated units including two ovens with a microwave oven, a warmer drawer and dishwasher with lift-and-load basket. This is superb open plan living space, and it provides ample room to accommodate a family-sized dining table. The sitting room features an eye-catching floor-to-ceiling wall panel, an electric corner stove and electric blinds on the windows. At the front of the house is a versatile room that serves as a study/snug or fourth bedroom; it has doors that open south onto the porcelain garden terrace.

The wide central hall has a bespoke steel staircase with open oak treads that rises to the first floor landing, flooded with light from above. There are three double bedrooms in total, one usefully positioned on the ground floor alongside the house bathroom. The principal bedroom suite has sliding doors with a glass balustrade, a dressing area with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom that includes a wall-hung basin and large walk-in shower with rain shower head. The second first floor bedroom has wall-to-wall fitted wardrobes and a garden outlook with the North York Moors in the distance. The large family bathroom has a floor-to-ceiling frosted window and a four-piece suite with a bath tub, walk-in shower with rain shower head and wall-hung basin.


Electric Corten steel gates open onto a private cobbled driveway providing a turning area and ample space for the parking of two cars. The garden is enclosed by a wall with established laurel hedging and timber fencing, providing great privacy. A Corten steel garden gate provides a secondary point of access. Areas of lawn flank the drive along with mature broad leaf trees and mature shrubs on the north eastern boundary. A porcelain terrace spans the front elevation and continues along the side of the house past the bifold doors that give access directly to the kitchen, culminating at the secure timber shed. This outdoor courtyard space is an ideal area for sitting out and enjoying the wonderful views towards the old town. The integral double garage has power and light and a parking space in front; it is accessed via a shared drive on Byland Road.
