A most attractive stone built lodge, located in one of Ripon's most desirable and sought after areas. The property offers an abundance of character throughout, with many beautifully restored period features. The detached house sits in mature grounds, with a lovely enclosed rear garden. The property offers a high level of privacy, a tranquil location, whilst also being conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the city centre.
The property sits on the edge of open countryside, making it ideal for dog walkers, whilst also being ideally placed for Ripon’s well regarded secondary schools, both the Ripon Grammar School and Outwood Academy.
The property has been much improved by the current owners in recent years and whilst the house is already a good size, there is certainly extension possibilities, all subject to necessary planning consents.
On the ground floor there is a spacious entrance hall with storage, cosy living room with a double aspect and wood burning stove, stunning open plan kitchen/diner/family room which has been tiled throughout and once again houses a wood burning stove, utility room with side access door and a cloakroom/WC. To the first floor there is a lovely light and airy landing with storage, master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a nice outlook, two further bedrooms and the stylish house bathroom, part tiled and fitted with twin sinks, toilet, large freestanding rolled top bath and separate shower cubicle.
Externally there is a lawned garden to the front, with stocked borders and a hedge lined path to the front door. A strip of garden leads down the side of the house, where there is driveway parking and gates giving access to the rear garden. The rear garden is a very good size and fully enclosed by hedge and fence boundaries. Part of the garden has been sectioned off to create a children’s play area (easily removed), whilst there is also a greenhouse and two timber sheds. There is scope to utilise some of the garden for further parking with relative ease. To the other side of the house there is another enclosed garden area, this time being low maintenance and currently used for storage. This area is once again sheltered from the road and would seem ideal to house an extension, once again subject to any necessary consents.
A rare chance to own a part of Ripon’s history, this is certainly a house with plenty of original features and character. Sure to suit a variety of purchasers, an internal viewing is certainly advised to appreciate the accommodation on offer.
