A unique family home occupying a plot estimated to be in excess of an acre. The Gables, in Gate Helmsley, has only ever been owned by one family having been built in the 1970’s. The property has scope for further renovation and/or extension and is offered vacant with no onward chain.
The front door opens to an entrance hallway off which are the stairs to both the first floor and a half landing level accessing the lounge. This beautiful room has therefore an elevated position which enjoys privacy as well as an attractive outlook.
Also off the ground floor hallway is an open plan kitchen / dining room. The kitchen boasts a series of painted wall and base units with contrasting black granite work surfaces. There is a sink, built-in exposed brick surround for cooker and spaces for appliances. Sliding glass panelled doors lead off the dining room onto a large patio seating area. Beyond the kitchen is a handy utility room with provisions for further appliances, in addition to a boot room and shower room with WC.
A second staircase leads to another half landing and family room with French doors onto a balcony over looking the patio and garden beyond.
In addition to the ample living accommodation, the ground floor also houses two double bedrooms. Each of these rooms have flexible uses, having been utilised as additional living rooms and as an office/study in the past.
The second floor houses three well proportioned bedrooms including the master with built in wardrobes. These rooms are all served by a family bathroom suite with bath and separate shower.
Externally the property is approached via two driveways, one of which leads to the double garage with workshop. The other driveway brings you down one side of the house to the rear where there is ample parking for several vehicles. Directly off the house is a larger than average patio seating area, ideal for al-fresco dining. Beyond which is a mature garden stretching several hundred yards on a plot estimated to be over an acre. Included in the garden is a covered shelter and large garden shed/stable. The bottom half of the garden is up a small slope and could be used as a separate orchard or paddock. The garden is especially impressive during spring/summer bloom.
In summary, a unique family home occupying over an acre of land.
