Beckwith Hall Drive, Riccall, York

A handsome detached property with the advantage of a large plot which includes outbuildings and a 18th century Folly. The outbuildings have formally been granted outline planning permission for conversion into an annex. The four bedroom property forms part of an exclusive development of similarly sized homes, built in what once was part of a large Beckwith family estate home from which the development takes its name.

The property itself is accessed at the front via a storm porch with oak framework and pitched slate roof and opens into a large entrance hallway off which are the principal reception rooms as well as a WC/cloakroom. The dining / kitchen / family room spans the depth of the house offering an ideal space for modern family living. The kitchen itself boasts a series of matching wall and base units with range cooker and integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Off the kitchen is a handy utility room with provisions for washing machine and dryer as well as a sink. Also accessed directly from the kitchen is a conservatory / garden room which has been used by the current owners as a playroom. To the other side of the entrance hallway is the spacious lounge which centres around a log burning stove.

Stairs off the hallway lead to a first-floor landing off which are four really well-proportioned bedrooms. The second bedroom has built in wardrobes, as does the master which also boasts an en-suite bathroom. A family shower room completes the internal accommodation.

Externally, the house is approached via a private access, shared only by the residents of the exclusive development of four houses which makes up Beckwith Hall Drive, formally part of the land of Beckwith Hall, a large estate named after the Beckwith Family who once resided there. The house itself has a driveway wide enough to fit 3 or 4 vehicles and leads to a double width garage. The garage is attached to further outbuildings which include 2 stores, a games room and a workshop with plumbing including a WC and sink. These outbuildings have formally been granted outline planning permission for conversion into an annex and have the potential for various uses.

The rear garden is fortunate to enjoy a south westerly aspect, ideal for the sun all day into the evening. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with patio / walkway paving and raised decked seating area, ideal to enjoy al-fresco dining. As well as the garden is a unique section of land in which is an 18th century Folly once belonging to the Beckwith Hall estate.



Riccall is a popular village ideal for commuting to and from York and Selby with good amenities including, restaurants, public houses, post office, primary school, shops and active village centre. There is a local bus service to York and Selby, running every 15 minutes during the day.

Take the right turn initially onto Back Lane and then the second left onto Beckwith Hall Drive. The house is at the rear of the development.
