Croft Farm sits on the edge of the attractive village of Biggin in an enviable rural position between York and Leeds.
Where: Croft Farm sits on the edge of the attractive village of Biggin in an enviable rural position between York and Leeds. Its just under three miles from Sherburn in Elmet, where there are schools, a railway station and a good range of shops and services.
The wider area is served by an excellent range of schools including fee-paying St Margarets at Escrick, St Peters and Bootham in York, and Leeds Grammar School. The area also has two of the countrys foremost universities at Leeds and York, as well as Leeds Metropolitan and York St John.
There is an excellent range of sporting and leisure facilities in the area with golf courses at Scarthingwell, Cocksford and several near York; racecourses at York, Wetherby and Doncaster; and six square miles of footpaths, bridleways and cycle paths at nearby Bishopwood.
What: This extended and well-presented former farm house comes with a range of purpose-built outbuildings and a detached cottage in its eight acres of land. Its believed the original property dates back to 1750 and was later extended at both ends to create the large house it is today.
The vendors have completely refurbished and modernised it over the last 20 years to provide an attractive, spacious home with flexible accommodation and much character and charm. It also has the added benefit of a detached two-bedroom cottage, ideal for elderly relatives, teenagers or, potentially, paying guests.
Inside: On the ground floor, you will find a good-sized living room, a dining room with an original fireplace, a recently completed playroom, a snug, a kitchen and a large utility room. The spacious accommodation is completed on the first and second floors by five double bedrooms, two with extensive fitted storage and one with its own shower room and walk-in wardrobe, a family bathroom, a further shower room and a separate WC.
Outside: There is a purpose-built garage block with three bays and a staircase leading to part-converted, first floor accommodation. Beyond this is a detached stable block with three boxes, constructed to the same standard as the garage. For those potential purchasers with equestrian interests there is also a pole barn in a large paddock.
Price: Croft Farm is being marketed at a guide price of 895,000.
