Occasionally a property of such charming character and generous proportions comes to the market and the sale of West Rays provides one of these increasingly rare opportunities.

We understand the property dates back to 1868 and has undergone a comprehensive programme of renovation and refurbishment by the present owner, which has seen the house significantly extended, reconfigured and refurbished, whilst restoring many original features of the house. In summary, the works include a two storey extension, refurbished kitchen, outdoor garden summerhouse extension to the garage and general maintenance and decor.

The expansive accommodation to the ground floor is particularly adaptable and flows well, combining both family and more formal rooms centred around the attractive original staircase, creating a real sense of space. The house is complemented by many period features including deep skirting boards, open fireplaces, architrave, coving and high ceilings.

The spacious sun room/dining room is the hub of the home, having surrounding casement windows and French doors leading to the rear garden and beyond. Located off the kitchen is a useful utility room comprising a range of units and sink with recess for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Furthermore there is a ground floor w.c. and access door to outdoors.

The multi-functional games room forms part of the two storey extension built in approximately 2005 which can also lend itself to become a home office or fifth bedroom depending on the requirements of the individual.

The kitchen has been refurbished in recent years having a range of full height units and wall and base units with attractive worktops over. There are a number of integral appliances including a ceramic hob with extractor hood, wine cooler, dishwasher, fridge freezer, coffee machine and microwave. In addition, there is a separate pantry/storage cupboard.

A central staircase initially leads to a small landing with steps either side to two large double bedrooms located to the front of the property, both benefitting from original wooden polished flooring, open fire places and high ceilings with coving surround. Of particular note, bedroom two enjoys an en-suite shower.

Continuing to the top of the staircase, the spacious landing, which currently accommodates the present owners open home office, with rear window providing pleasant countryside views.

There are a further two well proportioned double bedrooms, having a double-glazed casement window and central heating radiator. The master is without doubt the choice bedroom being a beautifully proportioned room complemented by a spacious en-suite.

The internal living accommodation is completed by a house bathroom having a bath and separate shower cubicle, in addition to a pedestal hand wash basin and low flush w.c.

Externally the property is accessed off Doncaster Road onto a substantial driveway providing off street parking for numerous motor vehicles. There is an attractive front garden being enclosed to all sides and access that runs alongside the property to the rear garden. A double detached garage will also to be found to the rear having excellent storage with power and lighting available.

One of the main selling features of the property is the rear garden, being predominantly laid to lawn with characterful brick walled boundaries. The present owners have created a raised decking area underneath the tree, which is a perfect spot for sunshine all day. Attached to the garage is a lean-to converted outbuilding which can be used a garden room, bar or relaxation room, depending on the requirements of the individual. Just in front is a well-presented circular flagged seating area, perfect for outdoor furniture.

Furthermore, there is a range of additional outbuildings currently being used for storage.

The property represents the ideal family home, enjoying spacious internal accommodation and generous outdoor space. The property will be sold with vacant possession and no onward chain.
