Property description

A deceptively spacious Georgian property offering flexible accommodation, benefiting from a large garden and a tennis court, close to York.

This handsome Georgian house with its unusually long garden has been a wonderful family home for many years. Under the current tenure it has been extended along the eastern boundary creating a property ideal for entertaining and family life. Further scope for development is offered by the 25ft snooker room with independent access and adjoining integral garage.

West Lilling is a well situated village just outside the Howardian Hills within a twenty minute drive of York and a mile from the wide-ranging facilities found in Sheriff Hutton.

This property dates from the early nineteenth century and comes with elegant proportions, high ceilings, sash windows and fireplaces. There is ample living space on the ground floor with the potential to increase it further. The family room has a wood burning stove, and there are open fireplaces in the dining room and drawing room. The drawing room and garden room have French doors that open south onto the sunny terrace with views of the garden beyond. There are also French doors from the connected office/playroom which open to the west onto the garden terrace.

The country kitchen has integrated appliances, granite worktops and enjoys fine views. It connects to the heart of the house being open plan to the breakfast room where double doors provide access to the 20ft garden room and garden terrace. Alongside is the utility room and cloakroom/wc where there is a useful rear entrance to the property.

Attached to the house is a magnificent 25ft ancillary room which forms part of the former Methodist Mission, with its own independent entrance, high vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and a fireplace. It is currently used as a snooker room and would be suitable for a number of residential uses including a possible annexe subject to consents.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes. The principal bedroom has an en suite and there is also a modern family bathroom.

Outside - The house enjoys a peaceful corner plot, set back from the village lane behind a front garden bounded by a low wall and various garden shrubs. A gravelled drive on the western boundary gives access to the rear of the property and two double garages. Here is ample space for parking and turning, with double timber gates set in a high brick wall that give additional access to New Lane. A paved terrace arcs around the back of the house providing a sunny south facing seating area. Beyond the generous sweep of lawn is framed by conifers, post and rail/laurel. The lawned garden extends to the south with a tennis court and orchard beyond, and the whole is bounded by a combination of mellow wall, fence and mature hedge.

Environs - West Lilling is well placed for access to York and the market towns of Easingwold and Malton, with the A64 connecting to York/Leeds/A1M being just three miles to the south east. Just a mile away is Sheriff Hutton which has many active clubs with multiple amenities such as a post office/store, Quarmbys Deli and coffee house, village hall, playing fields, a popular tennis and cricket club, a wine retailer/merchant and two pubs, The Highwayman and The Castle Inn. Five miles away to the south, Strensall Common provides 500 acres of countryside to explore and to the north the Howardian Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, is only a few minutes drive.
