Bedrooms: 6
One of Howdens most important residential country houses, occupying grounds of 5.75 acres situated on the eastern edge of Howden.

Built in circa 1856, Oaklands enjoys a beautiful rural setting with a comprehensive range of outbuildings and stables whilst enjoying over 3,800 square foot of internal accommodation.

This classic family residence offers extensive and flexible accommodation on a grand scale with up to 6 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, a large family kitchen and numerous utility areas. The majority of rooms are of near perfect proportions, many with just the right balance of period features and modern fittings. The principal rooms benefit from views over the exceptional gardens and the house is complemented by many period features including deep skirting boards, original fireplaces, architrave, coving and high ceilings.

The open plan kitchen dining area is the hub of the house enjoying a country style kitchen with ample natural light via windows to front and back. Situated adjacent is large utility which over the years has been multifunctional and previously used as a tack room. In addition to this there are two generous reception rooms overlooking the gardens, one with a bar area and a formal dining room.

The hall has retained some of the original flooring and there is a beautiful Victorian staircase which is divided into two leading to the front and rear of the main house. There is a home office in this part of the property as well as a cellar accessed via a separate door.

On the first floor, there are 4 generously sized bedrooms all enjoying high ceilings and views of the wonderful mature gardens. In addition, the first floor has two bathrooms, separate w.c and an extensive games room with a dual aspect view of the paddock land. The games room has the capability to become a magnificent principal bedroom depending on the individuals requirements.

A secondary staircase leads to the top floor, a converted loft space which makes way for two further double bedrooms. Original exposed wooden beams form part of the structure of the room and provide character and charm along with the flooring.

The grounds of Oaklands, which can be enjoyed from every room in the house, surround the property creating a vast degree of privacy with a comprehensive range of tall, established trees and herbaceous borders and have been designed with several wonderful areas to relax and entertain. A substantial driveway runs from Hull Road to the property and eventually leads to an area for several parked cars and more.

The handsome house stands proud and elevated centrally within the grounds and enjoys a more immediate garden to the front being predominantly laid to lawn and with a range of meticulously maintained shrubs and trees.

A tall timber framed building acts as a double garage and provides excellent storage. Central heating to the property is provided by a solid fuel system. The boiler room forms part of a single storey extension and houses the solid fuel system, burning mainly wood for the heating.

To the rear of the house are a comprehensive range of further outbuildings, workshop and 6 stables. The stables come with power and lighting and have superb potential for conversion to either residential ancillary to the farmhouse, separate dwellings or commercial use, subject to permitted planning consent and building control approval. The stables have a wealth of history being a former residence of the master hunt and are emphasised by traditional standings and troughs. With ready made stables available, there is enormous appeal to those with equestrian interests.

Within the courtyard of the stables, immediately next door is a swimming pool with surrounding decking and roofing over. The swimming pool has a heating generator located within one of the outbuildings adjacent. This area including the swimming pool has created many happy memories over the years, hosting family parties and celebrations. The pool does require some upgrading but has the possibility to become the perfect venue for those wanting to entertain in style again.

Located to the back of the stables is a tailor made orangery with an abundance of natural light and enjoying a peaceful setting.

The Title in its entirety extends to 5.75 acres in total having just under four acres of paddock land. Situated to the bottom of the land is a fish pond and a lean to timber framed tractor shed.

Oaklands enjoys a quiet, rural setting and is situated approximately 1 mile East of Howden town centre which has a vibrant selection of independent and supermarket shops, restaurants and café-deli s. The popular Howden primary and secondary schools are close by with further well renowned schools locally, including Read Private School and Selby High School. The market town of Howden is a popular destination with commuters, given its proximity to the motorway network and railway station with regular direct trains to various destinations including York and London.

The area is renowned for walking and riding, offering some of the countys most dramatic scenery and some of the region s finest country pursuits. It is not very often that properties of this size and nature with associated land come to the market.
