Skilfully combined, it is now a versatile home with contemporary style that blends with period features such as sash windows, arched doors, stone fireplaces, and quirks such as secret doors to a reading room.
Within extensive grounds and gardens, it has four reception rooms and five bedrooms. These include light-filled dining and reading areas, which flow one in to the other via double doors.
A large entrance hall with feature fireplace and staircase, leads to an inner hall and study, a shaker style beamed kitchen and utility area, the bay-fronted family room with exposed sandstone wall, and a sitting room, then the Amdega orangery.
To the first floor is a luxurious master suite with a galleried landing, two further bedrooms and a house bathroom. Two more bedrooms are above.
Along with lawns and terraces, is a walled garden. This home on South Street, Scalby is priced £850,000 with Colin Ellis estate agents. Call 01723 363565.
