Set in circa 1.8 acres of landscaped grounds and meadow land, this is a home of some considerable distinction and intrigue, architect designed in 2004 in a way which purposefully and skillfully integrates traditional and modern characteristics. The shape and varying pitches of the roof and the build materials used have respected the vernacular style. It is the rectangular and in some cases 'slit' form of the windows and an internal layout based on clean and simple lines which together, have created its unique contemporary appearance.
Situated on the edge of the village, the rear of the house faces south west and enjoys a panoramic aspect over open countryside. French windows either side of the living room fireplace provide access out onto a wide continental style timber decked pergola. This is positioned perfectly so as to maximise the views and to create a vantage point from which to enjoy some spectacular sunsets. The kitchen has double aspect windows which provide 180 degree views and has an open connection with the adjacent dining room. The master bedroom suite incorporates a separate room formed by a mezzanine landing above the dining room. This makes an ideal home office. Both the en suite shower room and large house bathroom are lit by sun tubes which create a very effective flat light.
There is scope to potentially reconfigure and to extend the accommodation. The integral garage which lies adjacent to the living room already has French windows within the rear elevation and planning permission has been granted for two new single storey elements. One of these is a matching projection from the rear wall of the kitchen. The other is an addition to the south eastern gable.
Gravelled parking/turning area and a landscaped front garden set the house well back and grounds overall extend to circa 1.80 acres. Boundaries are formed by livestock wired and railed fencing and there is a roadside field access.
Riccall village lies approximately 9 miles via the A19 south of the York outer ring road and within 5 miles of the market town of Selby. Kelfield Road is situated on the western edge of the village centre which offers a number of local shops and Public House. Other facilities include a village hall and Primary School. 23 Kelfield Road is the last house on the left handside as you exit the village and can be found by driving into the centre of the village from the A19 and turning into Silver Street. Continue past the Church and onto Kelfield Road.
