Bedrooms: 4
A most handsome and charming conversion, providing over 2,000 square foot of internal accommodation standing in beautiful grounds extending to 0.63 acres.

In 1994, thanks to brilliant craftmanship and fine architecture, the former St Helens Dairy Barn was converted to form a magnificent family residence. Many features and general internal layout of the building remained relatively untouched, preserving some impressive period features.

The present owners bought the property in 2019 and have completed a comprehensive range of further internal and external improvements works which has seen the house enhanced, modernised and loved again. The improvements were carried out using traditional methods and materials to seamlessly blend the old with the new. In addition, some windows and the gas central heating system have been replaced.

The expansive accommodation on the ground floor is particularly adaptable and flows well, combining both family and more formal rooms centred around the attractive oak staircase, creating a real sense of space. There is a room for all occasions, each beautifully decorated but ensuring the period features take centre stage.

The property is entered through a front door leading into a useful open room which can be used for a different range of purposes. The present owners have previously occupied this room as a reading and relaxing room and it has the potential, with minor building works, to become a formal home office.

There is an extensive lounge dining room, being the hub of the home. A Rayburn cast iron multi fuel burner is sat beneath a beautiful fireplace, with an wealth of natural light passing through several double glazed windows. There is ample space to accommodate appropriate living and dining room furniture.

Adjoining the front elevation is a single storey sun room which is of brick and uPVC construction. Surrounding windows provide incredible views along the garden. There is an electric storage heater, excellent for the cooler months and French doors leading to the outside and beyond.

There is a recently modernised utility room which is also used as a boot room, with a number of modern gloss wall and base units and with plumbing in place for laundry facilities. A Velux window provides natural light, and there is a pull up tower electrical socket. A pedestal hand wash basin and low flush wc complete the utility room.

The kitchen is located towards the rear and enjoys a sympathetic design to the character of the property. There are a number of wall and base units to three sides with bespoke fitted Bulgarian solid oak work surfaces over. Integral appliances such as dishwasher, Rangemaster cooker, fridge and freezer are all included within the sale. The former utility room is located off the kitchen and is currently used as an extension to the existing kitchen. Next door is a traditional large walk in pantry with a small window and fixed wooden shelving.

The guest bedroom completes the ground floor arrangement and comprises a good sized room benefitting from a modern en suite. A side window and Velux provide natural light and pleasant views overlooking the private and enclosed courtyard.

To the first floor, the property is further enhanced by three generously sized double bedrooms, all enjoying a double glazed window and central heating radiator. From the first floor, the views across the garden and paddock can be truly appreciated, the landscape filled with a mature and colourful garden whilst the historic St Helens church is just next door.

The main bedroom is of a generous size, having recently had a built in wardrobe and brand new en suite. The en suite has beautiful contrasting tiling and a white three piece suite. In addition, there is a mounted electric mirror and chrome heated towel rail.

The house bathroom has a similar design to the en suite, being simultaneously modernised. There is an L shaped bath with shower attachment over, pedestal hand wash basin and low flush wc. Chrome heated towel rail and mounted electric mirror complete the bathroom.

Externally, the property will be found off South Street which in turn leads onto a shared driveway. The property is situated approximately 50 yards on the left-hand side. To the front, a large open area provides off street parking for several motor vehicles. The present owners have recently installed an EV charging point which is positioned to the property s front elevation.

The property stands proud within 0.63 acres with extensive laid to lawned gardens and enclosed paddock with detached single garage. A beautiful, enclosed courtyard hides between the property and walled gardens and is accessed seamlessly from the property. A fish pond sits centrally with a number of raised beds, filled with reclaimed tiles from St Helens church.

Along the garden, a raised decking area benneath a pergola will be found enjoying an elevated position looking down the garden. There is a chicken pen being enclosed to all sides by fencing and with a water connection available inside.

The paddock to the bottom measures 0.21 acres and is enclosed to all sides. There is a stable which has been converted into an outdoor room and is most enjoyed in the summer months for relaxing or entertaining. The same solar panelled system is in place as for the garage. Next door within the same stable is a manufactured outside toilet having a portable chemical toilet in place.

Barmby on the Marsh is a highly desirable area, situated approximately 4 miles west of Howden town centre which has a vibrant selection of independent and supermarket shops, restaurants and café-deli s. There is a primary school in the village, and popular Howden primary and secondary schools are close by with further well renowned schools locally, including Read Private School and Selby High School. The market town of Howden is a popular destination with commuters given its proximity to the motorway network and railway station with regular direct trains to York and London.

The Old Dairy is one of the signature properties within the village, and it is not very often that properties of this size and nature with associated land come to the market. As the acting agents, we strongly advise an early inspection at the earliest opportunity.
