Rural edge-of-village location with little passing traffic

At the heart of the house is the impressive 24 ft kitchen breakfast room with French doors that open on to the veranda of wrought iron with part-glazed roof. Here is the large south-facing paved terrace that spans the rear elevation and offers the perfect opportunity for sitting out/al fresco dining. Framed by a border of perennials and sculptural plants it is a superb, sheltered space that provides glimpses of the garden beyond.

The contemporary kitchen has a central island with breakfast bar and is fitted with Neff appliances including an LPG gas cooker and steam oven as well as a double Butler sink. Alongside is a large utility room with fitted units and a boiling water tap. Double glazed doors open to the dining room, a well-proportioned and versatile space.

The 21 ft sitting room has an open fireplace with real fire and bay window overlooking the garden. At the front of the house, the family room with its useful corner gas stove makes a perfect snug.

Facing south, the principal bedroom suite has bespoke fitted wardrobes and a picture window enjoying views across the garden to Garrowby Hill, the highest point on the Yorkshire Wolds. Similar views are enjoyed from the guest bedroom suite which also has fitted wardrobes and the benefit of a superb bathroom with both steam shower and separate sauna. 

The substantial annexe within the garage block has a kitchen and shower room on the ground floor, and staircase rising to the large first floor room with Velux windows and storage in the eaves.

Outside
A shared driveway gives access to The Gables and one other property.  The Gables is set back from the village lane behind a high mature hedge and a number of specimen trees.  Electric wrought iron gates open to a large landscaped front garden with a blocked paving driveway providing an ample area for parking and turning.  The detached garage block has two separate electric up and over doors and a side entrance giving access to the annexe. Behind and alongside the garage are raised beds, a vegetable patch, greenhouse, shed and utility area housing the LPG tank and oil tank.

The property enjoys great privacy, has security lights and two side gates separating the front and rear gardens.  At the rear the south facing garden is largely laid to lawn encircled by a well-stocked herbaceous border that includes apple and pear trees amongst its colourful array of shrubs and perennials.  There is a gazebo on the western boundary, and a stepping-stone path extends the length of the garden to the summer house with power, light and TV aerial.  The whole is securely fenced making it ideal for pets and young children.
