Babthorpe Cottages, Babthorpe YO8 £595,000

4 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

A wonderful opportunity to acquire this deceptively spacious four bedroom cottage, offering versatile living accommodation with a generous and private rear garden. All set in approximately 2 acres.

2 Babthorpe Cottages was purchased by the present owners in summer 2018 as a tired semi-detached cottage, built circa early 1900s. Since then they have undertaken a comprehensive programme of renovation and refurbishment which has seen the house significantly extended, reconfigured and the entire building refurbished, enjoying a contemporary style internal open plan arrangement. In summary the works include a two storey extension, single storey extension to the rear, new double glazed windows, internal doors and carpets, entire property rewired and the property newly plastered throughout. The septic tank has also newly been installed and compliant with the new regulations as of 2020.

The present owners have carefully focused on an extensive and sympathetic restoration of the property, with many original features blending the history of the house with modern day living.

The expansive accommodation on the ground floor is particularly adaptable and flows well, combining both family and more formal rooms centred around the attractive original oak staircase creating a real sense of space.

On entering the property, a spacious hall has been designed to allow for storage of boots and coats. A useful utility room has a range of wall and base units and an external side door. Continuing through into the single storey extension adjoining the rear elevation, there is a wonderful open plan living and kitchen area with a set of bespoke bi-fold doors with secondary doors adjacent. Views are enjoyed across one of the propertys paddocks and the countryside beyond. Three Velux windows provide an abundance of natural light into an area directly below which can be used a dining or living space depending on the individuals requirements.

The kitchen is focussed around a handmade solid wood island with a range of modern grey wall and base units to one side with quartz worktops over, incorporating an impressive electric Rangemaster cooker, dishwasher and inset sink unit and drainer.

The principal sitting room is a spacious yet cosy room being located to the front of the property. There is a beautiful original exposed brick chimney breast having a cast iron multi fuel burner beneath a solid oak beam. There are twin double glazed windows and a turned staircase leads to the first floor.

The property is further enhanced by four spacious double bedrooms including a master bedroom with generous en-suite, enjoying uninterrupted views across open countryside via a Juliet balcony adjoining the rear elevation. All four bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, providing a real sense of space and benefit from a double glazed window and central heating radiator. House bathroom.

To the outside, the property is accessed from Hull Road onto a privately owned driveway leading to the property on the left hand side. A newly built double garage will be found in front of the property, one of which is allocated to 2 Babthorpe Cottages, having an electric roller shutter door to the front operated via a electric fob and a side door. Inside, the garage provides great storage space and benefits from electric.

Immediately in front of the property is an enclosed front garden which can be used for additional off street parking or private use. Behind the garage is one of two paddocks included within the sale. Paddock one measures 1.12 acres being enclosed to all three sides by fenced boundaries. This paddock has vehicular and gated access off the private driveway.

The second paddock is located to the rear of the property measuring 0.84 of an acre, again being enclosed to all three sides by fenced boundaries. There is a metal gate for vehicular access, along with a private rear garden with a patio and being predominantly laid to lawn. Additional off-street parking is available alongside the property.

The extent of the propertys Title measures just over 2 acres, comprising a four bedroom property with over 1,600 square foot of internal accommodation, 2 acres of paddock land and a single garage.

It is not very often that properties of this size with immaculate and extensive accommodation come to the open market. This property is a perfect example of a spacious family home with generous outdoor space for private or equestrian use and is perfect for those buyers who value a peaceful and quiet setting. It is therefore, as the acting agents, we strongly advise an early inspection at the earliest opportunity.

Importantly the sale is offered with vacant possession and no onward chain.
