The property has been extensively improved and extended by the current vendors and has valid planning permission for a single storey extension to the rear.

Originally a part of the Askham Richard Estate, Metcalf Cottage is located centrally within this most sought after conservation village which is by bordered open farmland and countryside walks. Askham Richard is positioned around the village Green and Weir Pond with the picturesque St Marys Church and the Rose and Crown Public House close by. Schooling is provided in the village via St Mary's CE Outstanding Primary School with Tadcaster Grammar School offering secondary schooling only 5 miles away within the market town of Tadcaster which provides a good selection of shopping facilities and amenities.

The property is accessed via a double glazed door to the front elevation leading into a porch area with fitted storage for coats and shoes and then through to the central hallway. The hallway benefits from feature tiled flooring and offers access to the downstairs living accommodation.

The sitting room is of a generous size with a large bay window to the front elevation allowing light to flow into the room. The focal point of the room is the recently installed log burner with brick inlay and timber mantle. Either side of the log burner are bespoke storage units and shelving.

The dining room is again spacious in size with an open fireplace and timber ceiling beams. The room has previously been used as a fourth bedroom by the vendors demonstrating the flexibility this property has to offer.

The living kitchen has been sympathetically designed offering a combination of contemporary and original features. There are a range of base and wall storage units with timber effect laminate preparation surfaces incorporating a ceramic sink with drying area. There are a number of integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and induction hob. The kitchen also benefits from a breakfast bar and a more relaxed seating area as well as an access door to the rear garden. The kitchen has enviable views of the rear garden and a number of features such as the original pantry shelving.

Through the kitchen is a separate utility area with plumbing and the necessary recesses for a washing machine and dryer as well as additional storage units and a thoughtfully designed hanging rail.

There is also a good sized office/study and downstairs WC with wash hand basin to complete the downstairs living accommodation.

Timber stairs from the central hallway lead up to the first floor landing which has a useful storage cupboard. The first floor living accommodation includes three, well-proportioned double bedrooms with sash sliding windows and the house bathroom.

The main bedroom is spacious in size with high ceilings, timber flooring and a useful storage cupboard. The ensuite has been thoughtfully designed and has a sizeable walk in shower cubicle, part-tiled walls, wash hand basin, WC and heated towel rail.

The house bathroom is contemporary in design with boasting a freestanding, roll-top bathtub, corner shower cubicle, wash hand basin, low flush WC and heated towel rail.

To the outside the property has a walled rear garden which has been well-kept and is predominately laid to lawn. There is also a useful timber framed storage shed, seating area and a five bar gate leading to the property's off-street parking.

It is therefore as agents that we strongly recommend an internal inspection to truly appreciate what this property has to offer.

The property also has valid planning permission currently in place to extend the rear ground floor. Please contact the office for further details.

Agents Note: The property has a pedestrian right of access to the neighbouring cottages across the driveway.
