To The Outside

The property sits on the edge of the village of Deighton offering quick and easy access to both the city centre of York and the market town of Selby. There is dual access to the property from both the Main Street of Deighton as well as the main A19 road.

The driveway in turn leads up to a detached garage block which is of brick and tiled construction and measures approximately 70 ft in length providing both garage and games room accommodation, and benefits from light and power.

Running full width across the front elevation is a York Stone patio and pathway with adjoining box hedging. The property s front garden is extensively laid to lawn with herbaceous central and side borders with an arched Pergola which leads through into the paddock land beyond.

A secondary flagged patio adjoins the side elevation providing ample space for freestanding garden furniture, and steps out on to the side and rear gardens beyond which are again extensively laid to lawn. A third block paved patio adjoins the rear elevation.

The property stands within approximately 8 acres of paddock including a pond, and mature woodland with the extent of the land can be clearly identified by the red verge on the plan set out within the sales particulars.

Finally there is a full sized tennis court with fenced surround.

There is no doubt that this property offers a quite unique opportunity and an early inspection of both the internal and external accommodation is strongly recommended to appreciate the true quality of the accommodation on offer.
