East Wing, Claxton House, Claxton, York YO60 7SD

This fine, Dutch-gabled house was built in 1912 for the agent of the Sand Hutton Estate. Some thirty years ago it was divided into two large homes with the East Wing having the lovely coach house and adjoining outbuildings. Although now in need of some updating, this much-loved family home has the space, outlook, versatility and setting to offer a compelling opportunity to any prospective purchaser, coming on to the market as it does for the first time in a generation

Large, semi-detached house – 3324 sq ft arranged over three floors
Ideal southerly orientation overlooking the lovely gardens and open countryside beyond
Period features include original Rosemary clay tiles on the roof, cast iron guttering, casement windows, original Dove & Sons kitchen range, elegant room proportions, open fireplaces on two floors
The 26 ft fitted country kitchen is vaulted with exposed ceiling joists, a breakfast area and utility room adjacent
Separate dining room
Wonderful sitting room and adjoining garden room combine to make a 36ft entertaining space full of natural light with a southerly aspect and garden access
Snug with working kitchen range and door to garden terrace
Large attic room on the top floor which, with updating, would make an ideal play room, teen room, hobby room or additional bedroom accommodation; there are bookshelves, storage, three west facing roof lights and a porthole window giving glorious views to the south.
Potential for development of the house, coach house and outbuildings
Convenient for easy and rapid access across the county and beyond, superb for business commuters

Outside
The house is approached from the village road via a shared gravel drive alongside a belt of mature woodland. There is ample private parking for six cars immediately to the rear of the house. The drive continues to the former coach house/garage overlooking the private, paved courtyard which gives access to the main entrance of the house. Now serving as a double garage with inspection pit, the coach house also offers potential for further development (subject to the usual consents) having ample height for creating a studio flat over. The outbuildings comprise three useful stores, currently utilised as a garden store, freezer room/pantry and a fuel store.

The lovely, rear gardens are predominantly lawned with flower and shrub borders, and lie to the south of the house enjoying a fine outlook across open countryside. There is a large paved terrace, raised bed, small pond with water feature, pergola with climbing roses, and a gravel path that sweeps round to the far eastern boundary of the property where there is an apple orchard.  All is enclosed by post and rail fencing, mature hedging and trees.
