With origins dating back to 1847 when the York to Beverley railway line was opened, Railway House forms part of the original Burnby station and is full of character, retaining many original features. It benefits from having wonderful open views over farmland, and also comes with the addition of a chalet situated in a picturesque walled garden. The chalet has previously been let as a holiday home. Alternatively, it is a charming setting for an office, or to be enjoyed by the family.
Stepping into the front entrance hall you immediately get a feel for the quirky accommodation. Walk through into the bright and airy living room and you are met with wonderful views over farmland from the many windows in the room.. French doors lead out to the rear patio and onto one of the three garden areas. From the living room is the snug. Steps take you to the large mezzanine dining room. Off this is a study which is the original ticket office and still has the wonderful wrought iron grill.
The kitchen has a range of solid oak worktops and units, a Stoves range with induction hob and electric ovens. Off the kitchen is a breakfast room and walk-in pantry with automatic lights. The utility room and the bathroom with separate shower complete the ground floor accommodation.
To the first floor are four bedrooms and the family bathroom, the master having an ensuite shower room.
Immediately beyond the house is a paved patio and lawned garden; the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sunset.
There is ample parking to the front of the property, with a gravelled drive providing additional parking that leads to a double detached garage with electric roller door. The roof of the garage has 12 solar panels which are owned and provide electricity during the day, with the remaining power going to the National Grid with a feed in tariff.
Beyond the garage is another enclosed lawned garden with mature borders and trees. From here a door takes you into the delightful walled garden with mature plants and alcove seating areas. The timber chalet has a kitchen open to a sitting room, double bedroom and shower room. To the rear is a patio seating area and artificial lawn. The chalet has its own electric generator.
It is impossible to fully portray all the features and attributes of this amazing property. Only by internal inspection can this be appreciated. The property is on the market with NO ONWARD CHAIN.
