  • Bedrooms: 4
A highly individual detached family house STANDING IN JUST UNDER FIVE ACRES of gardens and paddock in a prime location ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE CAPITAL OF THE WOLDS


The Beeches is a well proportioned and detached house standing in a private setting with mature woodland to three sides and enjoying an outlook to the front and rear over its own paddocks.

Having stood in a semi derelict state for many years, the property was the subject of a comprehensive programme of restoration in the 1990's and has been much admired ever since. This attractive traditionally built former farmhouse has been well maintained by the current owners including the recent installation of new low maintenance PVCu double glazed sash windows, however purchasers may wish to update some of the internal fittings and decorations to their own taste. The size of the plot also provides an opportunity for further extension if required (subject to planning consent).


Little Driffield lies on the western outskirts of the Market Town of Driffield and is arguably one of the most sought after locations due to its accessibility to the Town's many amenities and the by-pass that affords effortless commuting to the larger Towns and Cities in the area.
