Ischia is an impressive house set in a fantastic position backing onto the towpath of the New Junction Canal and surrounded by open countryside. The property is situated on the most southerly edge of the rural hamlet of Braithwaite. The nearby village of Barnby Dun offers a range of shops and a primary school, and Doncaster, which is about seven miles away, provides all the services and facilities you might need.
The house is approached along a lovely country lane. The frontage is immaculately presented with an extensive block paved driveway, a neat gravelled garden, and paved steps leading up to the front door. To the left of the house a gate opens into the back garden, and to the other side the driveway leads to a large attached garage, beyond whch the garden extends quite some way to the right. The house itself is well appointed and beautifully kept, allowing you to personalise and style it step by step, in your own time.
The front door opens into a spacious reception hall. To the left is a good sized sitting room with a classical fireplace and a window to the front. This room could be used as a bedroom if required. The large kitchen has space for a breakfast table, windows looking out over the back garden, a door opening to the garden, and an adjoining utility room. To the right are three rooms which would could be used as bedrooms or secondary reception rooms. One is to the front with an electric fire, another to the rear is currently used as a study. They could also be adapted to form a ground floor annexe by incorporating the adjacent bathroom.
Stairs rise from the hallway to the first floor landing which has a window to the front. To the right is a fantastic spacious triple aspect room, currently used as a sitting room, but it could also be used as the master bedroom. There are pairs of dormer windows to the front and the rear, and large glazed patio doors to the side which open out onto a huge sun terrace surrounded by a wrought iron balustrade. This is a wonderful area for relaxing or entertaining, which enjoys unbeatable panoramic views over the canal and surrounding countryside. There is a further double bedroom to the left of the property with dual aspect dormer windows. Between these two rooms is a luxurious shower room with a frosted window to the rear.
The fabulous landscaped gardens extend to around half an acre stretching along the towpath. To the left side of the house and to the rear the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a timber summer house; to the right there is wonderful large pond which has been designed to attract visiting wildlife. All of this is immaculately kept, and is a real gardener’s paradise, being beautifully planted out with vibrant flower beds, mature trees and feature shrubs. The New Junction Canal is not visible from the garden as it is set up on an embankment, but a gate from the garden gives direct access onto the towpath, providing glorious walks in both directions.
