Copper Hill is a fine example of a late 1800's detached villa which stands in landscaped grounds of approximately 0.8 acre, tucked away off Mill Lane, in the centre of this highly desirable village. The property is rich in character and retains a plethora of period features throughout the extensive range of accommodation. A viewing is absolutely necessary to appreciate the appeal of this beautiful home, both inside and out. The elegantly proportioned accommodation is arranged over three floors, as depicted on the attached floorplan, providing fabulous living space and up to 6 bedrooms. Features include stunning cornicing, high ceilings, deep skirtings and architraves, sash windows with shutters, all hallmarks of a bygone era. An outstanding entrance reception provides a grand first impression, complete with a beautiful mosaic tiled floor. There are a series of 3 formal reception rooms, complimented by a sun room, conservatory, breakfast room and kitchen which has a range of fitted oak units and an AGA as its centrepiece. Ancillary rooms include a playroom, utility and cloak/WC. At first floor lie 4 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a modern shower room. The upper floor provides 2 further bedrooms. The gardens extend to around 0.8 of an acre and are an absolute delight, largely set behind a brick wall providing much privacy. Sweeping lawns have ornamental shrub and evergreens providing great interest. Directly to the rear of the house lies an inner courtyard with an externally accessed separate WC. The gravelled driveway provides plenty of parking and turning space plus there is an original coach house which now comprises the garage and stable with loft above. Rarely available on the open market is such a highly desirable property, a viewing is strongly recommended!
Given the size of the grounds there is potential scope for an additional dwelling/s to the eastern end of the garden. The agent understands that preliminary enquiries with the Planning Department of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council have been made and a favourable response received. No formal planning application has been submitted at this stage, nor does the seller wish to attach an overage clause to the sale.
