A superb detached farmhouse of significant stature having undergone a full programme of refurbishment to create an exceptional family house, standing in grounds of approximately 1/3 of an acre.
Church Farmhouse occupies a quiet and little known position in the centre of this small village, conveniently located mid way between Harrogate and Ripon. The village has a public house which is currently undergoing a significant refurbishment and a church and is recognised to be in close proximity of some excellent schools. For the commuter, the recently upgraded A1(M) provides access to the surrounding commercial centres and there are local rail services from Harrogate and Knaresborough, each linking through to main line stations in Leeds and York.
The original farmhouse has been skilfully and sympathetically upgraded by a local builder and has cleverly integrated an adjacent outbuilding to create beautifully presented accommodation which is designed for both family living and entertaining. The traditional farmhouse retains original character and provides spacious and light accommodation throughout. The entrance hall gives access to a drawing room and sitting room at the front of the property. An inner lobby leads through to a cloakroom and in turn French doors open into a newly remodelled open plan breakfast kitchen which has been upgraded to a high specification and includes integrated appliances, granite worktops, an island unit and an Aga. The kitchen opens into a beautiful glazed atrium dining area with double aspect bi-fold doors opening onto both the front and rear gardens. There is also a utility room and a cellar/wine store. An additional large family room lies beyond with the principal bedroom above comprising a double bedroom, two walk in wardrobes and an en suite bath and shower room. Stairs lead up from the main entrance hall to four bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room. There is also a separate house bathroom.
Approached through the village, crossing a stone built bridge, the property occupies a beautiful position within approximately 1/3 of an acre of gardens and grounds. To the front, a large elevated lawned garden adjoins the property including an attractive stone flagged entertaining terrace accessed from the glazed atrium dining area. A gravelled drive leads to the rear of the property and opens into a courtyard which provides ample parking and a substantial triple bay garage and an outbuilding/garden store. The property also benefits from a substantial private landscaped garden to the rear with mature boundaries.
