Plovers Barn is one of a collection of quality new homes built in contrasting styles and to very high standards by Whitfield Homes in 2008. The development is set back from the main street in this desirable village on the outskirts of York, with Plovers Barn privately situated towards the rear with open fields behind. The present owners have certainly put their stamp on the property, adding quality oak flooring to the impressive entrance hall and dining area, a cast iron multi-fuel stove in the living room, a range of solid oak cupboards and shelving in the family room and quality wardrobes in the master bedroom. These additions combine with the existing array of attractive features and quality fittings to form a home of considerable character.

The property enjoys views over a private south west facing rear garden, which is laid predominantly to lawn with a stone patio area adjoining the property and providing an inviting al fresco dining area. Around to the front is another lawned garden with a mature silver birch in the centre and a parking area to one side, finished in brick sets, with space for at least 2 cars. The village itself has a distinctly rural feel and benefits from a good pub on the main street with a friendly community atmosphere. The city of York and the outer ring road remain remarkably close by, with nearby Acomb offering a good selection of shops and services.
