Introducing an exceptional opportunity to own a unique four-bedroom bungalow, situated in a serene countryside location. Nestled down a tranquil lane, this property boasts picturesque views of fields and woodland, offering a peaceful retreat from the busy world.

Steeped in history, the bungalow is part of the renowned Gateforth Hall estate, originally built in the early 19th century as a shooting lodge. Its rich past adds to the charm and character of the home, making it a truly special place to reside.

Gateforth Hall itself was built between 1812 and 1814 for Humphrey Brook Osbaldeston as a shooting lodge for his surrounding estate. Humphrey Osbaldeston was the Sheriff of York in 1781 and died at the age of 90 in 1835. The estate was sold to the City of Leeds in 1897 and was subsequently used for a variety of purposes, one of which being the TB Hospital and the bungalows surrounding the hall were used as nurses’ quarters.

Upon entering, you are greeted by a spacious entrance hall that leads into a generously sized lounge, adorned with beautiful wooden beams and featuring a balcony above the double garage. From here, you can immerse yourself in the breathtaking scenery and enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings. The lounge also benefits from wooden beams and a multi-fuel log burner, creating an inviting and cozy atmosphere.

Continuing through the hallway, you will find a versatile fourth bedroom or separate dining room, offering stunning views of the surrounding fields and woodlands. The modern kitchen/diner boasts a bespoke wooden kitchen, built-in appliances, and a Belfast sink. A large utility area, separate toilet, and boiler room provide further convenience, with access to the rear of the property.
Further down, the inner hallway reveals three double bedrooms, all offering captivating views, and a spacious family bathroom complete with a bath and separate shower.

Outside, the property exudes charm and tranquillity, surrounded by an assortment of stunning plants, shrubs, and bushes on multi-level grounds. The back of the garden, with its lawned area and paved patio, presents an ideal space to relax and unwind. The presence of a greenhouse allows for the cultivation of plants, while well-established trees and plants further enhance the beauty of the grounds.

The property is situated on approximately 0.7 acres of land and benefits from a double garage, stables, and a workshop and has two separate entrances, one of which can be accessed from Meadows Park and main one from the Gateforth Hall, Hillam Road. It also benefits from double glazed wooden windows, oil central heating and a private sewerage scheme for the estate operated by Yorkshire Water. The double garage is equipped with power and light. The stables to the front of the property provide additional storage space. The workshop at the back of the property offers potential for development into an annex, boasting double-skin construction, power and light (subject to planning consent).

Gateforth Hall is part of a small hamlet on the outskirts of Gateforth village, offering a peaceful and idyllic setting. Conveniently located, the bungalow provides easy access to major towns and business centers in Yorkshire. The A1(M) motorway and A19 are both within close proximity, connecting you swiftly to York, Doncaster, and other key destinations. Furthermore, the nearby railway station in Selby offers convenient transport links to York, Leeds, London, and beyond.

This exceptional property is surrounded by a choice of primary and secondary schools, both state and independent, within a 15-mile radius, ensuring a range of educational opportunities for families.

A truly rare find, this large four-bedroom bungalow combines the peacefulness of a rural setting with the convenience of modern life. Don't miss the chance to own this remarkable home and immerse yourself in a world of serenity and charm.
