TENDERS CLOSE 12 APRIL 2017. A substantial period farmhouse set within formal gardens and adjoining paddock land extending to approximately 22 acres, occupying a semi-rural position on the southern fringe of Thorner.
The sale of Saw Wood House offers a rare opportunity to acquire a period farmhouse set in approximately 22 acres on the southern fringe of the sought after village of Thorner. Furthermore the property has never been offered to the open market having been in the same family ownership since it was built. The property occupies a semi rural position approximately 2 miles south of the centre of Thorner with its village store and post office, two public houses and a restaurant. The market town of Wetherby is only some 15 minutes’ drive offering a wide variety of amenities including shops, schools and recreational facilities. There is ready access to the principal Yorkshire commercial centres of Leeds, Harrogate and York and the A1(M) is only 10 minutes away for those wishing to travel further afield.
The ground floor accommodation is accessed from an entrance vestibule and central staircase hall and includes a well proportioned lounge with cocktail bar, full length exposed stone wall and central arched fireplace surround. An archway leads through into a separate dining room beyond which is a study with open views to the rear. There is also a spacious sitting room, rear hall with guest shower/cloakroom and WC and access to a storage basement. The breakfast kitchen has a comprehensive range of fitted wall and base units, integrated appliances and off which is a rear utility porch. At first floor level is a principal bedroom with dressing recess, second double bedroom also with dressing recess, two additional double bedrooms and a house bathroom and WC. A separate staircase leads to the second floor where there is a fifth bed/sitting room open to the full pitch of the roof with exposed beams and trusses, adjoining store room and en suite bathroom and WC. This could effectively form a small annexe/teenage suite if required.
Outside, initially the property is approached from the A64 through electric entrance gates shared with the adjoining barn conversions and down a long driveway with paddocks on either side. At the end of the long driveway there is a private parking space for two cars which in turn gives access to a single garage behind which is an adjoining utility/store room. Leading off the main driveway is a private access with a further set of electric entrance gates which lead round the front and side of the farmhouse into an extensive parking area to the rear. Formal gardens surround the property with lawns, borders and mature trees, ornamental fountain, stone pergola and seating area. The adjoining paddock land surrounding the property extends to approximately 22 acres in all. Please note the two timber stable blocks are not included in the sale but may be available by separate negotiation. There is a pedestrian right of way running east to west across the front paddock shown on the attached plan.
