A substantially extended period cottage offering spacious & characterful accommodation of over 3,000sq.ft together with mature gardens of almost half an acre, ample parking & double garage.
The Old Cobbler’s sits proudly along the approach to Hunmanby, overlooking All Saints Church, and is understood to date from 1842, commissioned by Admiral Mitford, who owned the village and used it as his estate office. Over the last 180 years the house has evolved, resulting in an especially spacious family home with a wealth of character and a versatile layout.
In the early-1990s a substantial two storey extension was added to the rear of the property, creating a galleried entrance hall, 26ft sitting room and a superb master bedroom suite, which sits well alongside the original cottage. The overall accommodation amounts to a little over 3,000sq.ft and comprises entrance hall, guest cloakroom, sitting room, dining kitchen, snug, dining room, study, sun room and utility room. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite), alongside an office or smaller fifth bedroom.
The property benefits from a dual central heating system with both a gas fired boiler and a more recently installed air-source heat pump, which along with photovoltaic solar panels provide a healthy annual income via renewable heat incentive payments, in addition to savings on energy used.
There are large gardens to the rear of the property, which in total amount to approximately half an acre, with extensive lawn, shrub borders, specimen trees and flagged terrace. The upper portion of the garden affords fine views, both across the village, the countryside beyond and out to sea. Directly behind the cottage is a block paved parking area, giving access to a double garage and car port.
