A substantial and beautifully presented period home, offering extremely spacious accommodation, extending to approximately 1700 square foot in total, including the cellar. Whilst already a very good size due to the property extending over the adjoining archway to the upper floor, there is the scope to extend into both the cellar and loft, as a number of the neighbouring properties have done and both are ripe for conversion, subject to necessary consents.
Much improved by the current owners, the property has been sympathetically modernised, giving comfortable modern living, whilst the properties character and charm has been retained. A quality kitchen has been fitted with quartz work surfaces and a stunning house bathroom has been created, once again designed to reflect the properties character and befitting of such a lovely home.
The family home also boasts a large garage and private garden to the rear, offering woodland views. The property has gas central heating and double glazing, whilst solar panels are also in place, giving a substantial annual return. The house occupies a handy location with ease of access to the city centre and all of Ripon’s shops, restaurants and amenities. The property is also located very close to the Ripon Leisure centre, which will also soon house Ripon’s new swimming baths. The property is ideal for walkers, with lovely riverside and canal side walks close by. The location is also ideal for commuters, with access to the bypass also available within seconds.
On the ground floor there is an entrance vestibule, spacious reception hall with stairs to the first floor, living room with large bay window and an attractive fireplace with gas fire, generous size dining/family room with the potential to add a wood burning stove and double doors leading to the rear courtyard, good size modern kitchen with some integrated appliances and rear entrance door, cloakroom/WC with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer, plus stairs leading down to the good size cellar which currently offers handy storage. The first floor offers a landing with large storage cupboard and loft access, very good size master bedroom with fitted wardrobe and open views through two large windows, second good size bedroom with a range of fitted wardrobes and further over stairs storage cupboard, two further double bedrooms (bedroom four accessed from bedroom three, but could quite easily be changed) and the luxury bathroom, fitted with a white suite and benefiting from both a large shower cubicle and rolled top bath.
Externally there is a small garden to the front with path and steps leading to the front door. Directly to the rear of the house, there is a small enclosed courtyard, beyond which there is a further enclosed garden, offering a good degree of privacy and views over the woodland beyond. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with patio seating area. There is also a very good size garage (19' 3'' x 9' 6'' (5.86m x 2.89m), with electric up and over door, power and light, 7 kilowatt electric vehicle charging point, plus a further side entrance door. A hardstanding to the side of the garage could also be adapted to create further parking, should the new owners wish.
Character properties of this size are rare to market and an early viewing is advised on this competitively priced family home.
