A delightful period house, which has been signifcantly extended, with large gardens and off street parking in a pretty village close to York.

Poppies sits in the heart of Claxton, a traditional village surrounded by meadows and woodland situated alongside neighbouring Sand Hutton and benefiting from its proximity to York, being some ten minutes’ drive from the city. The house has been lovingly restored, remodelled and extended by the current owners who have created a house with a wealth of charm and style.

The accommodation is beautifully bright and well-proportioned and feels spacious without being rambling. The ground floor comprises a number of reception rooms including a traditional breakfast kitchen, characterful dining and family room to the front which are of near perfect proportions and in the extended part of the property there is a stunning sitting room with engineered oak flooring and an arched double doorway opening on to the landscaped gardens, and a multifuel stove flagged by a pair of tall sash windows. The first and second floors offer 4 well-proportioned bedrooms, served by 2 bathrooms, with the principle bedroom benefitting from an ensuite shower room.

The house is set comfortably back from the village road behind a brick wall and a pretty parterre front garden with central flagged pathway, standard box trees, clipped box hedging and a small pond, all enclosed by high trellis clad in perennial climbers. A gravelled drive leads to the single garage/store – with off street parking in front for two cars - giving access to the large rear garden that extends across the width of the house and its neighbour. Formally landscaped the rear garden has two formal ponds, areas of decking, raised beds, patios and manicured lawns lined with gravel pathways and clipped box hedging as well as a freestanding barbecue. In the far western corner, well screened with high trellis draped in an elegant jasmine, is a kitchen garden with a shed, greenhouse, four raised beds, two apple trees, blackcurrant, redcurrant and gooseberry bushes, rhubarb, raspberry canes and a cherry tree. A side alley (with right of access) leads to the rear of the property where a private drive shows the way to a well screened parking area for up to four cars. We understand that there is lapsed planning permission for a detached garage.

Claxton is a quiet rural village located some 8 miles north east of the historic city of York, from where there are quick and regular trains to London. The village has a picturesque appeal with a mix of pretty cottages and houses. There is swift access onto the A64 for easy commuting west to Leeds (about 35 miles) or north towards Malton and Scarborough. The surrounding countryside is glorious, with the Yorkshire Wolds to the east and the Howardian Hills to the north.

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.
