A Converted Wheelhouse Makes the Perfect Picturesque Family Home
This modern family home in the conservation village of Whixley is on the market
Set in the picturesque surroundings of the North Yorkshire countryside, Whixley is the perfect place for anyone looking to enjoy the tranquility of country life and join a local community with a calendar full of traditions.
The Wheelhouse is a beautiful family home that manages to blend spectacular light and space with all the warmth and comfort of a rustic retreat. This has been achieved through great attention to design and detail during its renovation, which was completed in 2012.
Among the property’s most appealing features are the exposed beams and roof trusses. These are echoed by solid oak flooring in every room, as well as handcrafted features like the oak staircase which sweeps into a dual-level reception hall.
The Wheelhouse has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It also has a double garage, a cinema room, a utility room and spaces that currently serve as a gym and an office. The property also boasts an expertly planted wrap-around garden and has practical features like a boot room, potting shed and summer-house that make enjoying outdoor exploits a breeze. For those who would rather enjoy the scenery from the warmth of the indoors, the glass walls of the garden room make it the perfect spot to relax on a cooler day.
The huge open-plan kitchen means that there is no shortage of space for cooking, relaxing, working and, of course, eating together. For more formal occasions you might choose to retreat to the separate dining room. The cobbled courtyard has parking for up to eight vehicles so there is plenty of room for visitors. If you have longer-term guests, there is also the option of converting the current den into a self-contained suite with separate access to the courtyard.
This home has everything you need for work, leisure, entertaining and family life (with rustic charm to boot).
