Saxton, Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, LS24
This stunning period conversion reveals deceptively spacious accommodation set within a generous 0.3 acre plot, situated in a convenient rural setting enabling ease of access to the major commercial centres of West and North Yorkshire.
With Limestone and reclaimed rustic stone elevations under a clay tiled roof "River Cottage" is an imaginatively converted historic period building revealing stylish interior design throughout. Every effort has been made to retain original stone work and exposed beams within the renovation project, which also incorporates high quality kitchen and bathroom fittings, comprehensive double glazing with LPG fired heating with underfloor heating to the ground floor.
A timber framed entrance porch leads to a welcoming reception hall with guest cloak room. Off the hallway are two wonderful ground floor double bedrooms, one with a high quality en-suite shower room featuring traditionally styled combination sink and toilet unit with granite worktop and a large walk-in shower enclosure.
The magnificent 25'9 x 31'6 open plan living kitchen reveals exquisite full-height vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a galleried mezzanine over the sitting/dining area. There is also a feature wood burning stove with stone hearth. Off the sitting room is a fully glazed garden room providing direct access out to a raised seating area.
The kitchen provides well-planned bespoke high-quality shaker style fitted cabinets with luxury granite worktops and traditional Belfast sink. There is also the added benefit of separate utility/laundry room.
The ground floor accommodation is completed by an office/additional reception room which is oak and glass framed to one side, with exposed timber beams and bespoke fitted furniture.
Accessed via a spiral staircase, there is a first floor guest room with eaves storage and benefits from its own en-suite bathroom facility, comprising walk-in shower, bespoke sink unit with tongue and grove panelling and granite worktop and large jacuzzi style bath. Through the guest room there is access to the aforementioned mezzanine.
"River Cottage" is privately set back behind large iron gates and there is a generous provision of parking. There is also an outbuilding/workshop (28 x 8'6) with storage area to the rear and adjoining potting shed (which could be converted to an annex/home office subject to necessary consents)
The gardens are neatly laid out and feature lawned and gravel areas with mature planting. There is a stone flagged raised seating area accessed from the garden room, enjoying far reaching countryside views making this perfect for al fresco entertaining. There is a summer house with its own decked seating area overlooking Cock Beck, where any new owner would have riparian rights.
