- Download Brochure
This spacious family home offers a generous amount of living accommodation and well-proportioned reception rooms with high ceilings and large sash windows - making for a light and airy home. The house retains many of its original period features, which have been sympathetically incorporated to suit modern day family life. Although the property has been carefully renovated by the current owners, there are still areas in which to add value.
Entering through the front door into a large porch is a welcoming reception hall with a large woodburning stove, set in a stone hearth. This central reception room leads through into an incredibly light south-facing sitting room, with a 3-sash bay window overlooking the garden. This large bay window offers delightful views of the trees beyond and welcomes plenty of natural light into this sunny room. Adjacent to the sitting room, the sun/family room features glazed double doors leading out onto the decking area, extending the living space outdoors. Sharing a triple-aspect and open-plan space, the kitchen and dining area enjoys ample natural light and is the 'heart of the home'. The kitchen features contemporary oak units and a large butler sink, as well as a gas and electric range cooker. The dining area of this room features a beautiful fireplace with a polished limestone hearth, set in a large arch. The utility room with a Belfast sink and ample storage is located off the kitchen. There is also a back door onto the terrace, offering access to the garden, driveway and Coach House.
To the first floor, the light and airy master bedroom with a large bay window, benefits from a good-sized en-suite shower room. A further double bedroom features built-in storage and an en-suite shower room; while the two further double bedrooms on this floor are well served by a spacious family bathroom with a bath and seperate shower. Completing the accomodation on the first floor is a conveniently located laundry room. One further good-sized bedroom and a study with far- reaching views are located on the second floor along with a generouslysized shower room.
Located on the lower ground floor, a snooker room provides a further useful family space, while a workshop and wine cellar provide additional flexible usage opportunities.
This property has 0.5 acres of land.
The property is approached via a paved driveway, which provides generous off-street parking for numerous cars. The two garages are integrated into a large Coach House outbuilding which also incorporates a garden store on the ground floor, with a further storage area and hayloft above. This Coach House offers the opportunity to be converted into a seperate dwelling/annex, subject to the necessary planning permissions.
A large greenhouse extends from the Coach House outbuilding, which also incorporates a potting shed with an ancient vine, which still produces a good harvest of grapes. A spacious raised decked terrace, featuring a hot tub, extends from the ground floor of the property and offers the ideal spot for al fresco dining or entertaining. The generous grounds of approximately half an acre extend down a gentle slope offering a private lawned garden which is flanked with established planting and an array of mature trees - a peaceful secluded woodland haven.
Situated between the picturesque and relatively untouched village of Littlethorpe and the historic Cathedral city of Ripon, the property enjoys a peaceful position close to amenities. Ripon offers a wide choice of shopping and leisure facilities, including an independent Curzon cinema as well as a wide array of dining options and coffee shops. The central cobbled market square hosts a weekly market, selling produce from local suppliers.
There are some well-regarded educational facilities in the area, notably Ripon Grammar School, featured in The Good Schools Guide. The property benefits from excellent commuter links, with easy access to Ripon's eastern bypass which connects with the A1(M) and the wider national road network north and south.
Head south on the Ripon by-pass/A61. At the first roundabout, take the 2nd exit, then, at the next roundabout, take the 1st exit onto Dallamires Lane which turns right and becomes Littlethorpe Road. Grange Close is found on the right-hand side.Read all
