Located on the fringe of the picturesque rural village of Alkborough, perfect for a family looking to embrace country living, this stone built former farmhouse is close to the historic site of 'Julian's Bower.'

Formed on the footprint of the original barn attached to the house is a stunning vaulted ceilinged principal sitting-room. Described by the current owners as their favourite room, enjoying the light spacious feel created by double opening doors with glazed side panels which alongside Velux roof windows allow for natural light to enter the room - as well as ensuring that the outside space can be appreciated throughout the year; the room also has double doors linking from the study.
The kitchen is fitted in a range of soft white shaker style cabinets with beech block working surfaces and has a practical utility room which accesses the rear aspect.
