The launch of Mill Rise to the market offers potential purchasers the rare opportunity of acquiring an imposing family house enjoying an elevated position on the edge of this highly regarded village with extensive river frontage. The original house dates to the late 1960's and offers very flexible accommodation with adjoining garage and workshop with rooms above offering great potential to provide self-contained living accommodation. The detached four car garage with loft room above was added in 1998 and provides excellent garaging facilities and further potential. The entire property is surrounding by mature grounds and a viewing will be essential to fully appreciate all that is on offer. THE ACCOMMODATION The panelled front door opens into an entrance porch with glazed door opening into a central reception hall with all the principal rooms enjoying south facing views and direct access into the rear garden. An oak staircase gently rises to an impressive galleried landing and off the hall is a walk in cloakroom cupboard and adjoining cloakroom. The sitting room features a stone fireplace housing a wood burner with wooden mantelpiece and recessed book / display shelving to the side. In the corner is a walk in drinks cupboard and part glazed door leads into the south west facing garden room. The study enjoys fitted book shelving along one wall and adjoining is the dining room with feature fireplace and benefiting from direct access into the kitchen. The kitchen with its fitted units is dated and clearly there is potential to remove the dividing wall with the dining room to create a modern kitchen / breakfast room. Internal doors in the kitchen reveal a walk in pantry and a separate under stairs storage cupboard. The rear tiled hall doubles up as a boot room and offers access to the utility room with a corner shower, second cloakroom and snooker room housing a full sized snooker table (included) with a central lantern FIRST FLOOR The generous master bedroom has a run of fitted wardrobes with integral dressing table and en suite bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom served by the family bathroom and all benefit from recessed fitted wardrobes. OUTBUILDINGS & GARAGING Lying at the eastern end of the house and accessed off the rear hall or via sliding wooden door is a garage with adjoining former workshop with three phase electricity connected. Stairs rise up to a former office which is divided into two rooms with the main room having elevated views across to Turvey Mill, the mill race and open countryside beyond. The detached four car garage lies further to the east with covered carport to the front and accessed via four pairs of hardwood doors. Three phase electricity and air compressor included. An external spiral staircase leads up to a boarded storage loft with manual hoist. Lying in the south eastern corner of the rear garden is a detached double garage with tiled floor and used as a tractor and garden machinery store with storage loft above. GARDEN & GROUNDS Mill Rise is approached over a tarmac drive with private section starting at the stone piers. The drive is edged by lawns and sweeps up to the house and around to the block paved parking area in front of the detached garaging. A five bar field gate to the side of the garage allows vehicular access into the rear grounds and up to the garden machinery store. The south west facing rear grounds are a pure delight with an undulating lawn gently falling away down to the mill race of the River Ouse and benefitting from extensive river frontage.
