AN EXTREMELY SPACIOUS AND WELL APPOINTED FAMILY HOUSE OF CHARACTER IN A QUIET POSITION CLOSE TO THE CENTRE OF THIS MUCH SOUGHT AFTER VILLAGE
2 Ravenscroft Close occupies a peaceful situation on the south side of Back Lane in the centre of the accessible and much sought after village of Bilbrough, itself located just half a mile north of the main A64 trunk road thereby providing quick and easy access to Leeds and the other commercial centres of West Yorkshire. The village itself is characterised by period properties arranged to either side of the main street where there is the parish Church and a well regarded public house (The Three Hares) whilst a short distance away lies York with all the facilities that this distinguished Cathedral city has to offer which includes a number of highly regarded independent schools. The village falls within the catchment area of Tadcaster Grammar School and St Marys Church of England primary school in nearby Askham Richard.
2 Ravenscroft Close is an extremely substantial property of attractive brick elevations under a tiled roof and has been built to an exacting standard with the state of internal decorative repair and standard of internal fixtures and fittings being quite exemplary. Particular features include UPVC double glazed windows virtually throughout, panelled doors, dado rails, ceiling coving, underfloor central heating to the majority of the ground floor, Oak boarded floors to the Porch, Entrance Hall and Inner Hall and high quality fittings throughout. The stylish accommodation is also enhanced by the judicious use of recessed ceiling lights to the Kitchen, Family Room, Landing and Dressing Room.
The spacious Sitting Room is arranged to the front of the property where there is a wide canted bay window with leaded lights and a feature Inglenook fireplace with stone hearth and multi-fuel stove. To the rear of the Hall is a quite superb bespoke Dining Kitchen complete with Limestone-effect tiled floor, extensive polished granite worksurfaces with hand made units and a 4-oven gas fired Aga with electric module. An adjacent Island Unit with matching polished granite surface adds further flexibility to this fine room. Beyond a peninsular unit with double ceramic sink, integrated dishwasher and built-in wine cooler is a good sized south facing Breakfast Room being open to the ridge with four roof lights, a half glazed rear elevation and French doors to the rear terrace. Adjacent is a Family Room linked via a wide arch to a wonderful south facing Conservatory with timber-effect tiled floor and French doors to the sun terrace. Adjoining the Kitchen is a Utility Room with tiled floor, polished granite worksurface and plumbing for washing machine with door to a convenient Shower Room.
The first floor is no less impressive with a large Master Bedroom with leaded window to the front elevation and an ensuite Bathroom with shower. There is also a good sized Dressing Room with extensive wall shelving and hanging rails. The second bedroom has an ensuite Shower Room with a contemporary suite to include shower with antique style shower head and tiled walls. There is a third good sized first floor bedroom with an ensuite Shower Room with boarding below dado level, tiled floor and double sized shower. Completing the picture are two further second floor bedrooms with roof lights and a Shower Room.
To the front of the property is a shared brick sett driveway giving direct access to the Porch and to the integral Double Garage with electric up-and-over door. The principal garden is to the rear (south) of the house and is approached via both the Breakfast Room and the Conservatory which both open to a good sized flagged south facing sun terrace making for an ideal summer seating and al fresco dining area bordered by high trelliswork. Beyond lies a good enclosed garden laid down to a lawn.
