This wonderful cottage perfectly blends traditional charm with modern elegance.
It's a delight to look at this home from the outside, set amidst a pretty conservation area it has that quintessentially English charm. Open the front door and the magic happens. The sitting room is a delight, with a stove as the focal point it is everything you hope to find in a period home. The true surprise greets you when entering the kitchen, which expands out to incorporate a room that is as much a family room as it is dining.
Throw open the French doors and it feels as if the garden and home become one.
Upstairs the extension, plans were passed in April 2014, adds practical space and brings overall balance to the cottage.
There are three bedrooms, each one individual and a striking bathroom with bath and separate shower. A skylight provides natural light without restricting wall space.
We love walking through this home, it feels like it has always been just so and there is a pleasant combination of modernity with the characterful nooks and crannies of an older dwelling.
There's a parking space for the property which adds to the convenience of being here.
Set amidst glorious Vale of York countryside, Wheldrake is a pretty village less than eight miles from Historic York, around twenty minutes’ drive away.
