Milford Grange is a lovely family house occupying a semi rural position approximately ¼ of a mile to the north of Monk Fryston village. The property offers spacious and flexible accommodation and with the option to provide self contained ancillary accommodation for a dependant relative if required. The property also has the benefit of a valid detailed planning consent for the addition of an orangery together with two additional rooms accessed from the kitchen. The neighbouring villages of Monk Fryston and South Milford are conveniently situated approximately 1½ miles to the east of the A1(M) link road providing ready access to principal Yorkshire centres and ideal for those wishing to travel further afield. The area is well served with excellent shopping and recreational facilities together with most denominations of schools and within approximately half an hour’s drive of the Robin Hood International Airport near Doncaster.
The ground floor accommodation is approached through a six panelled front door with fan light over into a reception hall with turned staircase, panelling to dado height and oak strip floor. This then leads through into a well proportioned drawing room with minster stone fireplace and multi fuel stove, oak flooring, exposed ceiling beams and fitted book/display shelving with cupboards below. There is a spacious dining room with stone tiled floor with underfloor heating and feature two way central fireplace with wood burning stove and twin archways open through into the breakfast kitchen with a range of bespoke units with granite work surfaces, central island, Falcon professional range cooker with concealed cooker hood above, American style fridge freezer with flanking larder cupboards, stone tiled floor with underfloor heating and French doors opening out into the front garden. Leading off the kitchen is a large utility room with matching units to those of the kitchen, stone tiled floor and 1½ bowl Belfast sink. A lobby off the dining room leads to a study with fitted computer desk and book shelving and a rear entrance vestibule/boot room with cloakroom and WC. Accessed from the drawing room is a garden room with French doors opening onto the south facing sun terrace off which is a second cloakroom and WC and a family/TV room. A secondary staircase leads up to a first floor bed sitting room with an en suite bath/shower room all with vaulted ceilings and ample eaves storage space. Agents note – part or all of this wing of Milford Grange could form a superb self contained annexe for a dependant relative if required.
From the central reception hall a turned staircase leads up to a minstrel gallery leading firstly to the principal bedroom with a recessed fireplace and cast iron stove, exposed ceiling beams and delightful views over the grounds and open countryside beyond. There is also a fitted dressing room with a good range of wardrobes and an en suite bath/shower room again overlooking the grounds. Double bedroom two is a charming children’s bedroom with exposed beams and roof trusses, en suite shower room and folding ladder leading up to a spacious mezzanine play area with balustrade. There is then a third double bedroom and a house bath/shower room in this section of the house. A long rear landing with panelling to dado height and two built in store cupboards provides access up to a fourth bedroom, again of great character with exposed beams and roof trusses.
From the two stone pillars just off Ingthorne Lane a long sweeping tree lined driveway owned by Milford Grange leads through double electric entrance gates down a private driveway into a large courtyard/turning circle providing parking for numerous cars. This in turn leads via a further driveway/parking area to a stone built detached double garage. There is a second gated access to the rear of the house opening into a large enclosed courtyard.
The formal gardens and grass/paddock land all lie to the south of the property incorporating a grass tennis court, children’s play area, a football pitch and an attractive small man-made lake with summerhouse.
