A delightful cottage which is believed in part, to date back to the late 1700's, offering a charming interior full of character and interest. The name Willow Cottage comes from bygone times to when the house was home to the village basket maker. Now it is occupied by an artist who has made good use of extensive outbuildings to create an art studio with its own wood burning stove and two large windows. At over 2,000 sq ft, the accommodation is truly spacious - the three reception rooms all have beamed ceilings and two include open fires. Those who work from home will appreciate the separate study and, in addition to the four bedrooms upstairs, a ground floor bedroom suite which is accessed via one of the two living rooms, will appeal especially to those who may have dependant relatives. The gardens are beautifully laid out with grassed and enclosed terraced areas and include off street parking and a double length garage, workshop and an additional single garage/store.
Riccall village lies approximately 9 miles south of the York outer ring road and within 5 miles of the market town of Selby. Kelfield Road is situated on the western edge of the village centre which offers a number of local shops and Public House. Other facilities include a village hall and Primary School. Willow Cottage can be found by droving into the centre of the village and turning into Silver Street. Continue past the Church and onto Kelfield Road. Willow Cottage is number 24 and is located down on the right hand side.
