This bespoke, architect-designed, modern house is distinguished by its high ceilings, large windows and generous room sizes. It sits well in its plot at the edge of a peaceful, rural hamlet two miles from the A63 Hull Road connecting Selby and Howden. A large and practical family house Algeia has a boot room, utility room, ground floor cloakroom/wc and first floor storage options.
At the heart of Algeia is the L-shaped kitchen/dining/living room which is a bright family space with views over the garden and fields beyond. It is a large country kitchen with solid oak units, granite tops, a Range cooker and breakfast bar, providing ample room for a family-sized dining table and open plan to a living area. Across the hall lies the more formal sitting room, some 22 ft in length and double aspect with views over the garden and paddock.
An imposing central staircase with a large arched window ascends to the first floor galleried landing. Here is a principal bedroom suite, a guest suite (also with dressing room) and two further bedrooms. All have high ceilings, some enjoy far-reaching views across open countryside, and two have fitted wardrobes. The bathrooms are stylish and fitted to a high standard, and the house bathroom has a contemporary freestanding bath, separate shower and heated towel rail.
The property lies at the edge of the village overlooking farmland. From the village road, a timber 5-bar gate opens to a gravel drive that passes the holding paddock and sweeps around three sides of the house concluding outside the stable block. The south facing garden is predominantly laid to lawn with trees and hedging at its perimeter; it sits in front of the house, bounded by fencing with far-reaching views over open countryside. Dating from 2000, the John Goodrick stable block includes two stables, a mare & foal stable and a tack room. The paddock is fenced with a number of mature trees and a high hedge on the road boundary.
South Duffield lies midway between the market towns of Howden and Selby, ideally placed for commuting to the city of York and for access to the M62 and conurbations beyond. It is a quiet rural hamlet surrounded by countryside with Skipwith Common National Nature Reserve nearby, one of the last remaining areas of northern lowland heath in England. The neighbouring village of Hemingbrough has a range of local amenities including a primary school, village hall, cricket club, public house, and local shop. Other amenities are easily accessible in Howden, Selby and York. For private schooling, Queen Margaret’s at Escrick is ten miles away, and there are excellent schools in York.
