A beautifully renovated detached family home, situated in the picturesque and highly sought after village of Sawley, ideally placed for access to both Ripon and Harrogate. Previously separated into two cottages, the property has been converted back to one, whilst certain aspects of the separated cottages have been kept, as the house currently services two families. There is flexibility in place to adjust the accommodation to suit the needs of the new buyers, with minimal work. There are currently five ground floor reception rooms and three double bedrooms to the first floor, plus converted loft space. The renovations have been sympathetic and care has been taken to retain the properties charm and character, whilst making the cottage comfortable for modern living. As part of the renovations, the full building was re-roofed, oil central heating was added and the property was also part re-wired. Substantial properties of this size are rare to market, with accommodation extending to in excess of 2300 square feet, plus loft space.
On the ground floor there is an entrance hall with storage and stairs rising to the first floor, main living room with open fire, dining room, stunning kitchen/diner/family room with open fire and further entrance vestibule, cosy snug with exposed ceiling beams and wood burning stove, large sunroom with exposed stone wall and double doors leading to the rear garden, utility room housing the oil boiler and with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer, wet room with WC, plus a further fitted kitchen and garden room, with lovely views over the grounds. To the first floor there is a large landing with loft access, master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and display fireplace, further large bedroom again with fitted wardrobes, third bedroom and two bathrooms, both fitted with white suites and including a bath with glazed screen and shower over. There is further dressing/study area, whilst ladder stairs lead to the converted loft space, with pitched ceiling and exposed roof timbers and beams.
Externally the house sits on a substantial plot, extending to approximately 0.2 acres in total. The property is approached by a shared driveway, leading to a gravelled parking area for several vehicles. There is a stone storage shed and further outbuildings, connected to the house and affronting the roadside, one with power and light. There are pretty cottage gardens to the front of the house and gated access from the road, with a path to the front door. The rear gardens are delightful, well established and stocked with an abundance of trees, shrubs and plants. There is a summer house with power, light and water, plus several seating entertainment areas, making the most of the lovely open views. The views are emphasised even more from the roof terrace, offering a good degree of privacy and glazed panels giving shelter from the elements. There is a good size workshop (11' 6'' x 12' 0'' (3.50m x 3.67m)) with power and light to the bottom of the garden, plus further storage shed.
Sawley itself boasts a thriving village community and amenities including a public house, village hall and church, whilst the village is also situated on a bus route. There are stunning countryside walks and cycle routes on the doorstep, ideal for those loving the outdoors. An internal viewing is advised to appreciate the flexibility, space and quality on offer.
