GAYTON: Generous-sized family home
Reader House is a detached Georgian property in Winch Road, Gayton, which has many original features including sash windows with shutters and panelled internal doors.
This generously-sized family home has now reached a new chapter in its history and is on the market for £285,000.
The ground floor accommodation includes four reception rooms. There is an entrance hall with a pamment tiled floor and the original staircase with an arch on to the landing.
The sitting room, which overlooks the front garden, has a cast iron wood burner in the fireplace recess and a double cupboard with shelving. The dining room still has the original cast iron fireplace and the breakfast room, with a view over the back garden, has a built-in pine bookcase and a quarry-tiled floor. It leads, through an archway, to the snug and then through to the kitchen.
This has fitted units and cupboards, walnut-effect worktop, a dresser-style unit and integrated dishwasher, oven and ceramic hob. It has a window seat, overlooks the back garden and the floor is in brick. Next door is a utility and shower room with ceramic flooring.
There are three double bedrooms on the first floor, two of them with period fireplaces, and there is also a study and a bathroom.
Reader House stands on a good-sized well established plot and is accessed by period style wrought iron gate. The front garden is mainly down to lawn enclosed by a wall and railings and there is a partly walled back garden which is a particularly attractive feature. It includes lawns and borders, a herb garden, trees and garden sheds and there is a brick and pantiled double garage with an up and over door.
Another property with history is the Old Post Office at Ingoldisthorpe which is up for sale for £225,000.
This end-terraced cottage was built around 1900 in solid brick and carrstone and has three bedrooms, three reception rooms and attractive gardens with enough garaging for four cars.
The living space includes a reception hall with study space, a sitting room with a ceiling-to-floor brick fireplace, plate shelf and period pine cupboard, and a dining room with twin aspect windows and views over the village pond.
There is a family room which also overlooks the pond and also has a full height fireplace, and a kitchen with a hob, oven, ceramic tiled floor and wood grain effect worktops. It leads to a bathroom and to a utility room. The bedrooms and a shower room are on the first floor.
The front garden is down to easily maintained shingle and is enclosed by wrought iron railings. A brick weave pathway leads to the back garden which has an enclosed courtyard area and a sunken pathway through to the lawns and established flowers, shrubs and trees. A paved patio leads to a further lawned area enclosed by a carrstone and brick wall.
Also in the grounds is a former barn with light, power and attic storage and a timber four-car garage.
