Bedrooms: 3

Deceptively spacious and skilfully extended beautiful residence, set within 0.28 acres.

17 Green Lane was purchased by the present owners in late summer of 2008 as a tired semi-detached dwelling, built in early 1900 s. Since then they have undertaken a comprehensive programme of renovation and refurbishment which has seen the house significantly extended, reconfigured and the entire building refurbished, whilst restoring many original features of the house. In summary the works include a single storey extension the rear, new gas central heating boiler, double glazed windows, summerhouse and more.

The present owners have carefully focused on an extensive and sympathetic restoration of the property, with many original features blending the history of the house with modern day living.

The expansive accommodation on the ground floor is particularly adaptable and flows well, combining both family and more formal rooms. The kitchen forms part of a single storey extension which runs the full width of the existing house.

The property welcomes you into a rear entrance porch and later into a beautifully decorated entrance lobby with a wood burning stove set within an exposed brick surround fireplace. Plenty of storage can be found alongside the fireplace and there is a walk in cupboard and a further open understairs cupboard, ideal as a cloakroom. The present owners are to be admired for their choice of decoration and flooring as well as for creating a room perfect for reading or relaxing.

To the front of the property is a cosy yet spacious sitting room having a cast iron wood burning stove with built in storage adjacent. There is a double glazed window to the front elevation and parquet flooring to finish.

The former kitchen now serves as a useful utility room having a number of wall and base units to one side incorporating a stainless steel sink unit and drainer. Provision for laundry facilities and access to the kitchen/diner and bathroom.

The bathroom is located on the ground floor and is one of the major renovations the sellers have completed. The contemporary bathroom comprises an inset bath with separate walk in shower in addition to a chrome heated towel rail and vanity hand wash basin with an illuminated, mirrored wall mounted unit. Elegant surrounding tiling and flooring complete the bathroom.

The hub of the home is without double the kitchen diner extension which has been carefully designed with a stunning central island and full span bi-fold doors. High vaulted ceilings provide a real sense of space and an abundance of natural light via two Velux windows, side double glazed window to the side and bi-folding doors. With entertaining and elegance in mind, the kitchen has been designed with bespoke fitted units, quartz worktops and a number of integral appliances which include a dishwasher, fridge, freezer and ceramic induction hob with a slim pull out canopy. In addition, there is a double oven, inset sink with mixer taps over and space within the room for a snug area and dining furniture.

A turned staircase leads to a landing that serves three bedrooms, separate toilet and loft access. The main bedroom is located to the front of the property and again the beautiful décor continues. There is parquet flooring, radiator and double glazed window. Bedrooms two and three are both double in size and benefit from a double glazed window and central heating radiator.

To the outside, the property will be found along one of Selbys most desirable locations known as Green Lane. There is a hardstanding area for off street parking for a motor vehicle. The driveway alongside the property is shared with the neighbouring property and leads to a privately owned courtyard and pathway access to the rear garden.

The rear garden is a major selling feature of the property, enjoying private space an

d extending to over a quarter of an acre. Immediately from the rear of the house is a block paved patio area, positioned ideally for the sunshine. A pathway runs through the centre of the lawn to a summerhouse.

The summerhouse was built circa 2015 and is of a brick and timber construction having power and lighting connections available. Inside there is a wood burning stove with a flue vent and French doors facing the rear garden. The summerhouse makes it a perfect conversion for an extra room, gymnasium or home office depending on the individuals requirements.

The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn and enclosed to all three sides by fenced or tree lined boundaries. A number of tall and established trees provide a vast degree of privacy in addition to an enclosed area at the bottom of the garden, used for small animals /pen run. Copies of the property s boundaries are available via our agency upon request. Please note these are not to scale and are for identification purposes only.

The sale of this property provides one of those increasingly rare opportunities to acquire such a beautiful family home or equally a home to retire to, and it is not very often that properties of this size and nature with associated garden land come to the market. As the acting agents, we strongly advise an early inspection at the earliest opportunity.
