A wonderful opportunity to acquire this lovely architect designed village house set in a secluded position in the popular and conveniently located village of Bilbrough. The Old Vinery is a substantial and immaculately presented family home which during the current ownership has undergone a programme of remodelling and interior design detailing all carried out to the highest specification by renowned local companies and craftsmen. The property is entered via the welcoming reception hall giving an immediate indication of the quality of the internal accommodation. There are excellent entertaining spaces, including the comfortable sitting room with feature brick fireplace and log burner, formal dining room and breakfast kitchen with hand crafted fitted furniture and granite work surfaces, exposed beams and feature brick alcove to house the range cooker. One of the many highlights is recently constructed Green Oak Orangery by Prime Oak with under floor heating, built in speakers and fossiliferous limestone flooring, having direct access to the sitting room, breakfast kitchen, large flagged patio and gardens. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a fully fitted utility room with direct access to the garden, study with bespoke fitted furniture and cloakroom. The staircase rises to the generous landing with feature arch window, leading to the lovely double aspect master suite with adjoining fully fitted dressing room, en suite and balcony overlooking the gardens and surrounding open countryside. The first floor also houses a guest bedroom suite, two additional double bedrooms, with fitted wardrobes/storage and fully tiled house bathroom with Villeroy and Boch whirlpool bath and fitted furniture. A further staircase leads to the second floor where the current vendors have created a wonderful games room/gym fitted with pine flooring throughout, wiring for surround sound, remote control lighting, access to eaves storage and large en suite bathroom – potential for additional loft extension, (subject to the necessary consents).
The Old Vinery is approached by a private electric gated drive with intercom, which leads to the gravelled parking area and detached double garage. The professionally landscaped, fully stocked walled gardens and grounds, enjoy and wide variety of herbaceous borders, established evergreen planting and flower beds bounded by mature shrubs and trees. The gardens have been creatively designed and immaculately tended to provide continued interest throughout the seasons.
Bilbrough is a charming and much sought-after village ideally located for easy access to Leeds, the motorway network and of course nearby York with its excellent rail connections direct to London, Edinburgh and Trans Pennine to Manchester Airport. The village is connected to the high-speed fibre optic internet network.
The village has a strong sense of community with an active social life focused around the village hall, the church and village pub the Three Hares. At the village hall there are regular classes in Dance, Dog Training and Karate; whilst socially there are coffee mornings, folk dances and the not to be missed, over-subscribed quarterly Wine Club meetings. The Church has recently appointed a new vicar and holds regular services (and for the history buff, contains the tomb of Thomas Fairfax of English Civil War fame). For further information visit the www.BilbroughVillageHall.co.uk website. The village lies within the catchment area for the highly regarded St Mary’s Primary School in Askham Richard and Tadcaster Grammar School with a number of excellent private and state schools nearby in the historic city of York.
