A spacious & beautifully appointed family home set in open countryside, enjoying spectacular views, together with garage block, extensive gardens, grounds, stabling & paddocks, totalling approximately 10 acres.
Far Close is a thoroughly impressive property, which enjoys a superb and completely private setting with tremendous views and land amounting to approximately 10 acres.
The original house, which dates from the 1930s, has been substantially extended and re-modelled resulting in a remarkable family home with over 2,800ft2 of well-appointed accommodation. Its interior is flooded with natural light and its layout has been designed to capitalise on its setting, two-storey bay windows to the front elevation allowing for panoramic views.
The accommodation, which benefits from uPvc double-glazing and oil-fired central heating, is arranged over two floors, and comprises entrance hall, sitting room, garden room, dining room, dining kitchen with Aga and cabinetry by Neptune, walk-in pantry, guest cloakroom, utility room and study. To the first floor is a master bedroom with dressing room and shower room en-suite, three further double bedrooms and a house bathroom.
The property is approached through electric gates onto a tree-lined, tarmac driveway, leading around to the far side of the house where there is a sizeable area for parking and a large double garage block with electric car charging point. A particularly striking feature of Far Close are its exceptional gardens, which have been professionally landscaped and feature a vast array of well-established shrubs and mature trees.
The property is a registered smallholding and has around 8 acres of grass paddock land, which will hold significant appeal for those with equestrian or smallholding interests, not least because there is gated access from the rear paddock onto Sands Road, a quiet no through lane which provides direct access onto the beach at Hunmanby Gap, where riding on the beach is allowed. The land has the advantage of good quality stabling and a field shelter, and in the south-east corner of the plot there is the potential to construct further outbuildings, on the site of some former agricultural buildings, subject to securing any necessary consents.
Far Close is positioned around three quarters of a mile north of Reighton village and enjoys easy access to the nearby town of Filey, which is within a five-minute drive. The town benefits from a comprehensive range of facilities and is best known for its wide sandy bay, which stretches for five miles from Filey Brigg down to Bempton Cliffs, where there is an RSPB reserve.

Electric, double gates open onto a lengthy tarmac driveway lined by an avenue of rowan trees, this sweeps past the front of the house and around to a large parking area between the house and the garage block. The gardens have been professionally landscaped and are divided into a series of ‘rooms’ with extensive lawn and a wide variety of established flowering shrubs, perennials and a range of mature trees including wych elm, maple, copper beech, whitebeam, and oak. The grounds have been designed to provide colour and interest throughout the year and various seating areas in both sun and shade. A broad, flagged terrace stretches across the front and side of the house, making an ideal viewing point to enjoy the view and the gardens at the same time.
Twin up and over doors. Personnel door. Casement windows to either end. Loft hatch. Electric light and power. Tiled floor.
The overall site area amounts to approximately 10.1 acres, of which there is around 8 acres of good quality grazing land. The paddocks are divided principally into three areas, the largest of which lies to the rear of the house, beyond a shelter belt and has two large timber stables. These both have electricity and water laid on and could easily be subdivided into five loose boxes. The remaining paddocks are linked, and lie to either side of the garden, and benefit from a field shelter. At the eastern end of the plot is an area with a collection of former agricultural buildings and the metal frame of a barn. This is well sceened from the rest of the property, but offer potential, should someone wish to construct further buildings (subject to planning).
