Property Overview

South Duffield Road, Osgodby, Selby YO8 £600,000

4 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

A fine example of a magnificent family home extending to over 2,000 sq. ft. sat within tremendous private grounds of 0.42 acre.

Elm Cottage was purchased by the present owners in 2019 as a tired detached dwelling and has since had a comprehensive programme of renovation works which has seen the property reconfigured, enhanced and modernised throughout. The major works started in the winter of 2019 when the kitchen area was extended and a new bespoke kitchen was designed and installed. The present owners also recognised the importance of a utility room and subsequently created this just off the kitchen with a ground floor cloakroom wc off the hallway.

The entire ground floor has been screeded and a damp proof membrane installed and brand new Karndean floor laid throughout. Furthermore, a brand new boiler was installed with a remaining 8 and a half years warranty left. The present owners also installed a brand Vortex sewage treatment plant, a well known and advanced activated sludge process plant.

The original property was understood to have been built in 1920 and then significantly extended in the early 1990's. The extension work was over two floors, creating an additional front room and porch to the ground floor and two bedrooms to the first. The property now extends to 2,050 sq. ft. with the perfect balance of family and more formal rooms with four generous double bedrooms to the first floor.

The property welcomes you through a front brick built porch and into the entrance lobby giving access to the entire ground floor with a turned staircase to the first floor arrangement. To the front is an extensive family room / second reception room, which is currently used as a play room for the children although could be used for a range of different purposes depending on the individual(s) requirements.

Sat behind the family room is the more formal lounge, which is offers a cosy, yet spacious room focused around a wood burning stove positioned centrally on the back wall. A solid oak wooden beam sits above the log burner and blends in with the character of the room with the flooring and elegant décor choices. Patio doors lead out to the rear garden and beyond.

The kitchen is located to the rear of the property and is undoubtedly one of the main selling features. The present owners have carefully considered the design and focused on maximising space whilst looking for that open plan living arrangement. Taking centre stage is a tremendous and extensive kitchen island with surrounding cabinets with curved edges and five chairs acting as a breakfast bar. There are a full range of wall and base units in a dove grey colour with white quartz work surfaces over. The kitchen comes equipped with a range of built in appliances including two ovens, induction hob with extractor hood above, dishwasher and two fridges.

One of the more important alterations has created a dining space within the kitchen area with full height matching kitchen units and walk in pantry. The kitchen has that crucial connection with the rear garden with French doors and full height glass panels to either side, which along with the skylight, provide ample natural light.

The utility room is located just off the kitchen area and provides further base units with storage, secondary sink unit and drainer and provisions are in place for laundry facilities. The ground floor is completed by a cloakroom wc.
To the first floor, the property is further enhanced by four generous double bedrooms, all benefitting from a double glazed window and central heating radiator. The principal bedroom is located towards the rear, being complemented by an en-suite shower and views across both the rear garden and open fields to the side. Each bedroom is in a position to admire the views not only across the private grounds but the surrounding open countryside fields.

The internal accommodation is completed by a modern house bathroom comprising a three piece suite and separate corner shower. The walls to four sides are fully tiled in a white with contrasting flooring.

Externally, the property will be found set back from South Duffield Road, occupying a magnificent position within 0.42 acre of its own private land. A number of tall and established trees surround the property and particularly to the front, which provides privacy from the road. A private driveway off South Duffield Road sweeps to the front left and down to the property with a double garage to the side. There is also a detached prefabricated garage to the front boundary as you come off the main road.

The front garden is generous and predominately laid to lawn with tree lined boundaries and a gravelled area for extra parking towards the front of the land.

The garage area is deceptively spacious and over time has been extended creating a large area which can also be used as a workshop. There are power and lighting connections inside and an electric door to the front. Furthermore, this space within the garages offers scope and potential to either be converted as ancillary accommodation to the main house or incorporated into Elm Cottage for a much bigger family home, all subject to planning approval.

The south facing rear garden, perfect for enjoying the summer sun, is in an incredibly private setting, nestled between two fields. There is a timber framed outdoor seating area with a summerhouse for the outdoor furniture and children's toys. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn laid and enclosed to all three sides by hedge boundaries. There are established trees including fruit trees and views over the countryside to either side.

The plot within its entirety extends to 0.42 acre and the space externally is without doubt one of the main selling features of this property. Elm Cottage is one of the signature properties within the village, and it is not very often that properties of this size and nature with associated land come to the market. As the acting agents, we strongly advise an early inspection at the earliest opportunity.
