Turnhead Gate Cottage provides one of those increasingly rare opportunities to purchase such a good sized detached property which occupies just over three quarters of an acre of garden land.

The property is positioned on the outskirts of Barlby village in a semi-rural location along the old York Road. This large four bedroom detached property, believed to date back to the early 1900 s, presents enormous potential for purchasers to improve and extend.

Currently the property has a detached double garage which has recently had power and lighting installed, in addition to a separate attached room ideal for further storage. Furthermore there is a coal outbuilding adjoining the side elevation which again provides useful storage space.

The present owners purchased the property in 2017 and have entirely reconfigured the ground floor accommodation to create an open plan living style. The dining and sitting room merge into one, creating a wonderfully cosy area complemented by a quite beautiful log burner set within an exposed brick surround. Modern decoration, deep wooden skirting boards and impressive flooring really do finish the look.

The spacious kitchen enjoys pleasant countryside views across the garden but still requires modernisation and finishing. There is the possibility of extending the kitchen to adjoin the propertys building line subject to planning consent and building control approval.

A contemporary wooden framed staircase provides access to the first floor landing which in turn leads to four well proportioned bedrooms, all double in size and benefitting from a double glazed window. Of particular note, the master bedroom has been re-designed to now form a double bedroom with a separate large dressing room area and modern en-suite shower room.

To the outside, the property is accessed off York Road onto a gravelled turning circle and there is off street parking for numerous motor vehicles. The propertys front garden is predominantly laid to lawn and the rear is enclosed by fenced boundaries. Both garden areas do require a programme of landscaping works to enhance.

The propertys internal space and extensive adjoining land represents the perfect family home, with further structural alterations and conversions should the purchaser wish to explore the possibility. As the acting agents, we strong recommend an early inspection. All viewings are strictly by prior arrangement with the selling agent.
