If you are looking for a period property that oozes character, charm and has a huge amount of potential, then look no further as Lilac Cottage provides just that. This lovely family home is located in Sandholes, just off the Howden road, outside the village of Holme Upon Spalding Moor. Not only does the property have an abundance of internal space but its also benefits from two acres of land, the majority of which is a formal manicured lawn, whilst the remainder can be found just off the driveway in the form of a small paddock. Properties of this calibre rarely come to the market, so a viewing is absolutely essential to fully appreciate everything on offer.
Entering the property you find yourself in a porch, this is a good size and perfect for use as a boot room. The entrance hall is a nice open space with a staircase running through its centre to the first floor. There is a door on the right hand side that opens to a formal dining room with an open fire at its centre. If you do not require a formal dining room then this room could be used as a snug or home office. The living room is spacious with a number of windows, one of which is floor to ceiling in height and provides an abundance of natural light. There is a gas fire to one end where an open fire used to be, so if you wanted to reinstate a fire, then this is more than possible. Moving through the property you find yourself in the utility room where there is a single worktop to one side with wall and base units for storage. There is more than enough space for a variety of white goods. In the laundry room the door to the right opens onto the patio seating area, whilst a door to the left off the passage way opens to the formal gardens. Beyond the utility is the master bedroom with four fitted wardrobes, a sliding door that opens to the garden at the far end of the room and an ensuite bathroom comprising of a corner bath, freestanding shower, w/c, hand basin and bidet.
At the other side of the property you will find the kitchen, pantry and a separate shower room. The kitchen has two separate worktops one of which incorporates a stainless steel sink with drainer, whilst the other houses a four halogen hob. There are numerous storage units, space for multiple white goods and a breakfast table. At the end of the kitchen there is a walk in pantry which is fully shelved and comes with a freestanding chest freezer. There is a separate shower room off the kitchen comprising of a shower, hand basin and w/c. This shower room could be knocked through to add more space to the kitchen.
To the first floor there are four bedrooms, three of which have built in storage and are doubles. The fourth single bedroom is perfect for a young child or as a home office, if required. A family bathroom comprising of a bath, pedestal hand basin and w/c completes the internal accommodation.
Externally to front of the property there is a gravelled drive that leads round to the double garage with electric up and over door. There is parking for at least five cars on the drive and additional parking for two cars in the garage itself. At the rear of the garage there is a good sized workshop. There is a five bar timber electric gate that secures the rear garden from the drive, perfect if you have young children or pets. The garden itself is absolutely breathtaking with a variety of trees including various fruit trees, mature shrubs and vibrant roses. The garden provides space for children and pets to run around and play, a rare commodity for many houses today. If you require more outside space or even an area where you can grow vegetables or keep animals including chickens, then you will love the paddock that can be found as you come in on the main drive on the right hand side.
