THREE WORDS – Beautiful, Spacious Home
The Laurels stands proud in an enviable position situated a stone’s throw away from the heart of the delightful village of Sheriff Hutton. This impressive double fronted period property retains many original features from the tiled floor and fireplaces to the architraves, sash windows and beautiful staircase. The proportions of the two reception rooms to the front create a mix of large family spaces along with a sociable dining kitchen. The master bedroom has ensuite with three further double bedrooms. The pretty enclosed garden makes this property an ideal home for a family looking for a detached home in a great location.
You enter the home via a painted door with coloured stained-glass panelling and into a bright hall with original tiled flooring and coved ceiling. Past the staircase and to the right is a cosy lounge with gorgeous bay window facing the front of the house, the original fireplace gives this room a warm and welcoming atmosphere making it perfect to relax with family on a wintery evening.
To the left is an impressive sitting room the high ceiling and picture rail gives it a grand feel. The bay window to the front and side window allows lots of natural light to flood in. The fireplace with wood burning stove encompassed with a black surround and mantle with matching tiled hearth makes this room perfect for entertaining. A French door leads to the dining kitchen.
The kitchen is ideally placed at the back of the house, with bifolding doors that open out on to the garden bringing the outside in. The kitchen is smart with plenty of shaker style cupboards and display cabinets which complement the sleek black granite work surface. The Belling Range is ideal for any cook who loves cooking and entertaining. This dining kitchen is a super sociable space with its farmhouse table, great for Sunday lunches with friends and family.
Off the kitchen is a well sized utility room perfect for muddy boots and all those essential household appliances, as well as access to your double garage. There is also a door to the garden.
The galleried first floor landing is lovely and light from the sash window to the front. The Master bedroom has a luxurious feel with double fitted wardrobes and ensuite. There are two further double bedrooms with original open fireplaces. The fourth bedroom is currently used as a study but ideal as a fourth double. The family bathroom has a P shaped bath with shower, pedestal wash hand basin and wc.
The property enjoys an elevated position with brick paved driveway leading to double garage. The front garden is laid to lawn lawned garden with mature hedging making it private.
There is a delightful rear garden all divided cleverly into sections, a substantial patio for alfresco dining and entertaining, a lawned garden for children to play, then through an archway to a further paved seating area perfectly placed to enjoy the afternoon sun with a G & T! For those with green fingers there is a raised bed which would make a super herb/vegetable patch. The rear is enclosed with gate leading to the front.

Local Life in Sheriff Hutton
Situated on the edge of The Howardian Hills, Sheriff Hutton is a quintessential Yorkshire village offering idyllic living where neighbours are warm and welcoming and there is always something happening on the doorstep.
Steeped in history, the 14th Century castle built by John Neville later became home to the infamous Richard III. Today the spectacular ruins are the focal point of the village.
A hop skip and a jump away the Highwayman Inn where you will be greeted with a warm welcome, fine food, great beers and wine. Likewise, the Castleman Inn is well worth a visit.
Quarmbys deli is at the heart of the village, I can highly recommend the latte and the food is fantastic.
The village also offers a village store, post office and a wine shop! There is a highly regarded Primary School. The village hall hosts numerous clubs and activities, including preschool toddle group, badminton, bowls and other sporting activities.
Sheriff Hutton has excellent transport links, close to the A64 as well as the A19 between York and Thirsk. There is a regular bus service going to York city centre and Monks Cross. Strensall is 4 miles away where there are many amenities, Tesco Extra, Chemist, Butchers and many more. For those wanting superstores, Monks Cross is close by.
Sheriff Hutton is surrounded by beautiful countryside but close to the city, the best of both worlds. We think it is a pretty great place to live
