An extraordinary family home with a tennis court and land extending to 1.3 acres.

8, Keepers Cottage is an extensive, charming cottage built, we understand, in approximately 1850 being positioned within a rural sleepy village between Selby and Howden. The present owners acquired the property in 2003 and have since carried out a comprehensive programme of renovation works which has seen the house significantly extended, reconfigured and the entire house modernised throughout.

The major works started in 2004 following planning permission for the erection of a two storey extension to either side of this exciting dwelling. Six years later, planning permission was again granted for the creation of a tennis court located to the left hand side of the land and property.

The property s extensive internal accommodation amounts to over 3,000 sq. ft., comprising four reception rooms, kitchen and utility to the ground floor and six bedrooms to the first floor. The internal arrangement is unparalleled, showcasing what is a magnificent and deceptively expansive family home.

The present owners have carefully focused on an extensive and sympathetic restoration of the property, having many original features blending the history of the house with modern day living. The accommodation to the ground floor is particularly adaptable and flows well, combining both family and more formal rooms centred around a magnificent and bespoke stone staircase creating a real sense of space.

The main reception room wraps around the right hand in an L shape and is complemented by an abundance of natural light passing through an array of full height glass panels and French doors which lead out onto the patio area and beyond. An extraordinary wood burning stove takes centre stage and is just one of many features which make this house so distinctive.

The lounge merges into the formal dining area with sufficient space to facilitate appropriate furniture and leads into the spacious home office, forming part of the two storey extension work. Within the home office is a cast iron wood burner, with pleasant views overlooking the private front gardens.

The kitchen is located to the rear of the property and comprises a range of wall and base units to three sides and a large island. There are black granite work surfaces over contrasting with the solid oak island and a freestanding Aga and recess space for an American style fridge freezer. A door from the kitchen leads into the utility area and study beyond. The utility comes equipped with all laundry facilities and a secondary sink unit. Side access to the paddock and tennis courts.

The ground floor is completed by a study which is currently occupied as the present owners store room but can be used for a range of different purposes. Positioned between the study and utility room is a ground floor cloakroom wc.

To the first floor, the property is further enhanced by six bedrooms in total and two house bathrooms. The principal suite is without doubt the choice bedroom, being complemented by exposed brick and wooden beams and a beautiful en suite bathroom and separate shower.
