A SUBSTANTIAL DETACHED HOUSE offering an excellent opportunity to extend (subject to planning), set in EXTENSIVE GARDENS overlooking The Green in the picturesque rural village of ASKHAM RICHARD.
The house has been in the same family ownership since new in the late sixties and would benefit from some updating and modernisation. However, it has also the benefit of positive pre-application enquiry with the local planning officers for further extension to the rear. (Details available from the selling agents).
The house directly overlooks The Green with extensive views out towards The Weir (village pond) and the refurbished village tap. The house benefits from a gateway leading onto The Green but is approached via a private driveway adjacent to Potters Barn. The driveway leads to a pergola covered flagged terrace and the L-shaped south facing lawned garden with orchard area.
The house is entered via double doors directly into the central day room that features a timber clad ceiling with two Velux roof lights and a door giving access to the kitchen and living room. The good sized dining kitchen offers timber fronted units with integral eye level ovens and separate electric hob with extractor fan over, together with a counter and display cabinet dividing the room. To the end of the kitchen is ample space for a dining table or family area with turned modern staircase to the first floor and a wide window overlooking The Green. To the left of the kitchen is the L-shaped triple aspect living room, again with ample room for a dining table, if required, and a fire alcove with electric fire
Returning back through the central day room there is a ground floor shower room and a utility room leading through to a large garden room with attached conservatory to the south overlooking the gardens.
The staircase in the kitchen leads to two generous double bedrooms and a small bedroom or study, all of which are served by a further bathroom.
The house lies within extensive gardens providing ample scope for an extension to the house, subject to planning, and lies in a delightful rural village close to the A64 within easy reach of York city centre.
