Orchard House is nestled in the historic village of Cawood, once home to Cardinal Thomas Wolsey in the 1930 s - the inspiration behind the much loved nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty .
In the heart of the village is Cawood Castle, once belonging to the Archbishop Of York which was dismantled in the aftermath of the English Civil War. The only remaining parts of the Castle are the Gatehouse and Banqueting Hall which are now in the ownership of the Landmark Trust. Stones from the destroyed castle were used in the construction of surrounding houses which add to the history of this intriguing village.
Built in 1984 the property has been adapted and improved over recent years and designed to incorporate a vast array of modern features including modern 'Neff' appliances and energy efficient 'Atlantic' heating system.
The property itself is one of a kind. Luxurious and contemporary spring to mind in this five bedroom detached family residence. In the grounds of the property is a delightful two bedroom cottage. The cottage provides the flexibility as an annexe, a business opportunity as a holiday cottage or much needed space for working from home. The finish in the property is exceptional with high specification fittings that provide an exquisitely lavish feel.
Standing in private landscaped gardens and set within approximately 1.5 acres of land, the property is conveniently located 12 miles South of the City Of York and has excellent access to the village amenities including a well regarded school, bus stops, post office and quaint and cosy village pubs.
Internally, the property provides an abundance of space for the growing family with plenty of room for entertaining. The interior of Orchard House has been skilfully optimised to provide opulent rooms which connect well to the landscaped grounds.
The property is wonderfully secluded behind high electric gates leading to a driveway with ample capacity of parking and triple garage. The privacy of these grounds provide a feeling of seclusion and calm with significant lawns.
