Oakswood is one of 3 individually designed modern executive homes built by Hogg the Builder in 2004 in a tranquil corner of this rural village approximately 7.5 miles east of York. The house is approached via a well-maintained shared private driveway which leads straight to the electric cast iron gates of Oakswood; opening onto a Tegula paved parking and turning area in front of a double garage with an electric roller shutter door and attractive brick built log store attached. The house is framed by mature hedging and a line of mature trees behind; both providing a great deal of privacy. There is a stone paved pathway leading through an immaculate lawned front garden to the attractive portico entrance.

The house has been beautifully maintained and regularly redecorated resulting in a very contemporary feel throughout, the kitchen having been upgraded to provide space for occasional dining. The remaining ground floor rooms cater for all occasions, each well-balanced and linked by a series of double doors which create a natural flow ideally suited to family life. This theme continues on the first floor where there a 4 good sized double bedrooms around a central landing. The guest bedroom having a modern en suite shower room and the master bedroom having a large en suite bathroom.

In addition to the accommodation in the main house which totals an impressive 2,500 square feet, there is a useful room above the garage which currently serves as a children’s games room and occasional studio bedroom. The space would be equally well suited to a home office or hobby room. On the opposite side of the house is a delightful rear walled garden, laid predominately to lawn with layered borders interspersed by specimen trees on 2 sides, separated by a stone paved patio in the far corner, complete with an attractive amdega timber summer house providing an inviting venue for sitting and enjoying the peaceful setting in the afternoon sun.

Gate Helmsley is a surprisingly well served village given its size, benefitting from a good pub, a petrol station/shop, a country store, a church and a farm shop complete with its own restaurant/coffee shop. The village is only a few minutes’ drive or bus ride to nearby Stamford Bridge which offers a wider range of shops and services. The village is in an excellent location with York within easy commuting distance in the opposite direction and close proximity to the A64 for access to Leeds and the motorway network.
