The Elms is an attractive period property offering versatile accommodation within established gardens.

Archives held by York Minster suggest the house dates from approximately 1694. The property has since undergone extensive restoration including the porch, bay windows, sitting room, master bedroom and barn conversion. The owners have sensitively introduced modern touches such as underfloor heating and new glazing whilst preserving many of the original character and features.

This charming house is blessed with copious amounts of natural light thanks to the large, new double glazed sash windows. You can enjoy views of the beautiful garden from the principal reception rooms and bedrooms and even while luxuriating in the free-standing copper bath in the master en-suite. The interior is exceptionally stylish throughout and finished with high-quality fittings.

At the heart of this stylish home is a stunning kitchen of handmade painted timber and a central island unit. A place to entertain, to cook and to eat, this fantastic family room opens to the dining area with a stunning inglenook fireplace with log burner and impressive views over the garden from the large bay window

A practical boot room and separate shower room are positioned just off the kitchen and a small cellar/cloakroom off the entrance hall.

The drawing room is both elegant and cosy, with a floor to ceiling bookcase and pretty open fire place. A second sitting room also overlooks the garden and benefits French doors leading on to a fantastic outdoor patio area and garden kitchen complete with a Fuego pizza oven, BBQ, Belfast sink and plenty of preparation space. The ideal place for al fresco dining and entertaining.

To the first floor the feeling of space and light continues you will find four spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and wonderful views over the garden. There is a second staircase to the rear of the property.

The accommodation is spacious at 2800 square feet, briefly comprising- Kitchen/dining room, drawing room, sitting room, boot room, downstairs shower room, small cellar/cloakroom, master bedroom with dressing/laundry area and en suite bathroom, 3 further bedrooms and a shower room. In addition you will find an outdoor boiler room with the recently installed biomass heating system, a large lockable shed and a garage.

The annex has it’s own access and comprises kitchenette, double bedroom and bathroom.

Outside does not fail to impress. In 1972 James Russell (1920-1996), recipient of the Royal Horticultural Society’s highest award the Victoria Medal of Honour, consulted with prior owner of The Elms, over the design of the gardens. A sweeping drive leads you through the pretty grounds with wildlife pond and paddocks, bound by original walls and mixed hedgerows. With an orchard, fruit and vegetable patch, old stable block and paddock with direct access onto the riverside footpath this is a truly magical setting for this unique property.

The Elms is in a lovely quiet position by the Grade I listed church in the vibrant village of Bubwith which has excellent amenities including a well-regarded primary school, butchers, and delicatessen, a general store, a doctors’ surgery, a public house, and large leisure centre.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
