HIGHLIGHTS – It's Crayke! Set in 2 Acres with Three Holiday Cottages
THREE WORDS – A One Off!
The Oaks occupies an enviable position set within two acres on the edge of the picturesque village of Crayke enjoying far reaching views of open farmland and the village.
This individual stone-built property has three holiday cottages, with only one careful owner it has never been For Sale! Built on what was an orchard, belonging to the neighbouring farmhouse, the property has evolved and been lovingly renovated and extended creating a delightful family home along with additional cottages. Also being home to Woodcarvers of Crayke there are many bespoke solid oak features, including panelled doors, a stunning panelled wall, skirting boards and staircase.
The layout is a mix of well-proportioned reception rooms and private spaces with four bedrooms, ensuite, bathroom, utility, office and games room. The cottages have provided a lucrative business, but equally perfect for Granny, grown up children or could be remodelled becoming part of the main residence.
Situated within beautiful grounds the property is encompassed with mature perennials and trees making it wonderfully private and with plenty of parking for a fleet of cars and even a camper van! There is a one-acre paddock with animal shed/stable with far reaching views over open farmland.
It is a charming blend of traditional and country style, a lovely family home and a superb business opportunity.
Enter the house through the solid oak door into a welcoming hallway with stone flagged floor, this leads to ground floor reception rooms. The sitting room is bathed in natural light from the windows overlooking the front gardens. With exposed beams, stunning bespoke oak panelled wall and open fire with coal cupboard this is the perfect space for entertaining or relaxing with family watching a movie.
The open plan dining kitchen is undoubtedly the beating heart of this home and has a charming country farmhouse vibe. This space is subtly divided into a kitchen with obligatory Aga and dining area leading to the family snug with open fire. Plenty of windows and French doors make it wonderfully light and overlook the pretty garden. It is a place the whole family can be together each doing their own thing and super sociable for entertaining. In the warmer months you can fling open the French doors and enjoy morning coffee on the terrace! The formal dining room is off the kitchen, and utility and cloakroom.
To the rear is a home office opening to useful vestibule which is ideal for dumping muddy wellies and coats after a long walk around the Permissive! There is a further utility, large games room and store with wc.
