The impressive Picket Cottage forms part of a small and exclusive development of luxury homes, quietly situated in a peaceful cul-de-sac, in the heart of the ever-popular Copmanthorpe. The property has been impeccably maintained by the current owners and presents as an attractive and spacious detached home.
Beyond the handsome, white rendered exterior are well proportioned principal rooms leading from the central hallway, staircase and WC. To the rear is the generous lounge with stone and granite fireplace, woodpile effect electric fire, French doors onto the rear garden, attractive high skirting, and decorative cornicing. In addition to the front is a formal dining room and separate study. Oak flooring runs throughout the hallway, lounge and dining room.
Situated at the rear is the centrepiece of the house, the extended dining kitchen with built in matching seating areas and breakfast island. Fitted with a range of bespoke handcrafted units and complemented by granite worksurfaces and limestone floor. Integrated appliances include an eye-level Bosch microwave, dishwasher and fridge as well as stand-alone Rangemaster six ring gas hob and double electric oven.
Leading from the kitchen the integrated double garage has been converted to form a home office and utility room with direct access to the garden. This flexible space is ideal for those looking for a further private work from home space, gym or family area, however it could be easily reinstated as a garage.
Stairs from the hallway lead to a first-floor landing and four well-proportioned double bedrooms including the large Master suite with characterful vaulted ceiling and en-suite shower room. Neighbouring bedroom four serves as a further double bedroom or dressing room with fitted storage.
The further two double bedrooms both with built in storage share a connected en-suite shower room, and the main house bathroom offers both a separate shower and jacuzzi bath.
Externally, to the front is a driveway with space for two vehicles which leads to the integral double garage.
To the rear is a lovely mature garden, mainly laid to lawn with well stocked borders, shrubbery, and a remarkable degree of privacy. There are natural stone patios and walkways from both the lounge and kitchen and further patio with timber pergola and summerhouse.
In summary, a fabulous opportunity to secure a substantial, versatile, and beautifully appointed property, which presents in truly walk-in condition.
