A substantial Georgian period house offering over 3,200sq.ft of beautifully appointed accommodation, within extensive gardens & grounds of more than 1 acre, in a delightful, edge of village setting with open views.

Primrose Cottage is a substantial Georgian period property set within fabulous gardens and grounds of over 1 acre. The house has been greatly improved and has served as a much-loved family home for almost 30 years.

The property enjoys an expansive layout, with more than 3,200sq.ft of tastefully decorated accommodation, arranged over two floors. In brief it comprises entrance hall, living room, study, sitting room, an elegant 35ft drawing room, kitchen/dining room with Aga, utility room, guest cloakroom and side hall. To the first floor is a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further double bedrooms and two further bathrooms. Some time ago, a fifth bedroom was amalgamated into another, but could very easily be reinstated if required. The house benefits from sealed unit double glazing and there is oil fired central heating throughout.

One of the property’s most outstanding attributes are its gardens and grounds, which have been beautifully landscaped and amount to approximately 1.1 acres in total. The house is screened from the village street by a belt of mature oak trees which stand at the northern edge of its plot. There are extensive lawned gardens to both the front and rear, along with well-stocked shrub borders and a paved terrace, which spans the rear of the house and with its south-facing aspect is a complete sun trap and perfect for outdoor dining. Primrose Cottage is approached via a tree-lined driveway, leading to a generous parking area, a detached double garage, and within the gardens is a recently renovated workshop building and timber potting shed.

Lowthorpe is a small, rural village located south of the A614, approximately 5 miles east of the market town of Driffield. Primrose Cottage enjoys a superb position on the edge of the village adjacent to its 12th Century church and affords considerable privacy and seclusion. Nearby Driffield a comprehensive range of everyday amenities and is sometimes referred to as ‘the capital of the Yorkshire Wolds’.
