This substantial family house has been cleverly created from a former cottage which has been extended into part of a large stone barn, the remainder of which has been converted and now forms a separate dwelling. The farmhouse has gas central heating from a 'Worcester' boiler that is just 3 years old which is complemented by electric under floor heating to half of the living room and the house bathroom. In addition, there is a multi-fuel stove in the living room and a gas stove in the kitchen/dining room, together with double glazing throughout.
The house fronts onto an attractive stone set courtyard and is entered via a good sized porch into a generous entrance and reception hall with staircase leading to the first floor. There is a separate cloakroom with W.C. and wash basin and useful utility room with a range of base units, plumbing for a washing Machine, 'Worcester' boiler and the spring water supply filters.
Across the hall is a very spacious family dining room with open plan kitchen extension providing a range of oak fronted base and wall units with granite work surfaces and an inset 1½ bowl stainless steel sink. Appliances include a 'Rangemaster 110' range style cooker with gas hob and electric warming plate, gas grill and double ovens together with filter hood over. There is a separate dishwasher and a free standing 'American style' fridge freezer. The dining area has an attractive stone fireplace with gas stove and an exposed stone arch linking through to the kitchen. To the rear of the dining area is a separate side hall with external door to the garden and access to the cellar via stone steps.
The central first floor landing gives way to Bedroom 1 with exposed beams and a window overlooking the rear garden. This double bedroom has a fully tiled en suite with basin and tiled shower cubicle. Bedroom 2 is a pleasant double room with exposed beam, Velux window and a further window overlooking the courtyard. This house bathroom is very well appointed with large whirlpool bath and shower over with glass screen, large wash basin set in a vanity base unit, full length mirror and tiled walls. Tiled floor with electric under floor heating. The landing extends through to a generous office/study room with windows and views over the Aire Valley. It is from here the remaining two double bedrooms are accessed. Bedroom 3 has a laminate floor and a feature fireplace with a window overlooking the courtyard. Bedroom 4 has a feature fireplace with exposed stone chimney breast and walk in cupboard together with windows overlooking the rear garden and Aire Valley.
