DETACHED VILLAGE RESIDENCE WITH EXTENSIVE GARDENS, PADDOCK AND ENDLESS DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL - An impressive detached village home, set back from the road and offering a secluded and private setting, whilst also enjoying lovely open views. The property is surrounded by extensive gardens, whilst a paddock to the rear extends the site to approximately 0.9 acres in total. Stabling is also in place, making the property ideal for buyers with equestrian interests, whilst the stabling could also be utilised to suit a number of other uses.
Now requiring some modernisation, the property offers scope for the new owner to update and extend to personal taste. Already extended to the ground floor, the scope and possibilities really are endless, subject to any necessary planning consents being met.
On the ground floor there is a spacious entrance hall, living room with wood burning stove and double doors leading to the sun room, dining/family room with fireplace, fitted kitchen, utility room and cloakroom/WC. To the first floor there is a landing, large double aspect main bedroom enjoying stunning open views, two further bedrooms and the house bathroom. There is a modern boiler fitted and solar panels are also in place.
Externally there are extensive and established gardens, whilst a driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles and also gives access to a large double garage. Beyond the gardens there is a stable block comprising two stables, tac/store room and work shop, plus a large greenhouse. Access is available to the paddock from the garden and stables, whilst there is also vehicle access via a separate lane to the side of the main house.
The property is located on the outskirts of Littlethorpe, very conveniently placed for Ripon’s bypass, giving access to the city centre and commuting links nearby. Littlethorpe has a church, village hall and great community spirit. Shops and amenities are located close by, whilst both the Ripon Grammar School and Outwood Academy are situated just a short drive away.
Sold with no onward chain, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a privately positioned detached family home, set within a large plot and providing the scope to extend and modernise to the buyers own taste and specification.
