Melfort House is a substantial built detached circa 17th century family home situated in the picturesque village of Gleaston. The property is filled with traditional features complimenting the spacious living areas throughout and boasts deceptively spacious and substantial garden areas to the front and rear bordering onto open fields.

This fantastic family home is approached via a shared driveway leading alongside the private front garden and leads to off-road parking and a substantial detached double garage currently used for storage and workspace providing light and power points and additional access into the rear garden. 

There is also further gated vehicle access to the side of the garage leading into the garden areas. The front door opens onto a stone flagged porch and hallway with access into a front facing sitting room  overlooking the lawned front garden and providing a large multi-fuel fireplace with back boiler controlling the radiators within the property. 

There are feature beams to the ceiling and shelving storage space to either side of the fireplace as well as further fitted cupboards.

The main reception space is a full depth dual aspect lounge with double glazed windows to the front and French doors with adjacent windows opening out onto the rear garden. The room also has a recess multi-fuel burner sat in a fireplace with raised slate hearth while there is exposed wooden flooring throughout and recess display and shelving storage and two fitted cupboards.

Access from the lounge leads into a farmhouse style kitchen which contains large solid wooden work surfaces with fitted storage units throughout and splashback tiling. The room has a central dining area for a table and six chairs while there is an under mounted double ceramic Butler sink and mixer tap situated beneath a double glazed window onto the rear garden. 

The room is filled with traditional features including beams to the ceiling and slate flagged flooring throughout while there is space for a range cooker and recess space for a dishwasher and washing machine. 

The kitchen also provides a multi-fuel burner and access into the pantry storage.

The first floor features four bedroom accommodation. It provides three differing bedrooms with front facing aspects. This includes the second bedroom which provides double proportions with en suite shower room with Triton Opal power shower, WC and pedestal wash hand basin. The third bedroom provides a further double bedroom while the fourth bedroom is a single room.

The very large master bedroom is situated to the rear of the property above the kitchen and features an attractive pitched ceiling with exposed beams and a multiple aspect with double glazed windows to the side and rear as well as a stable door opening out onto a decked seating space with climbing plants and access into the rear garden.

The first floor accommodation is serviced by a four piece family bathroom which includes a freestanding slipper bath with mixer tap and showerhose attachment, corner shower cubicle with wall mounted mixer shower, WC and pedestal wash hand basin. 

The room has a partially pitched ceiling with feature beams and a low-level double glazed window allowing outlooks from the bath onto the rear garden while there is also access from the room into a large loft storage area. The loft is boarded and has the potential for further conversion.

Melfort House has been developed and improved by the current owners to provide a solar photovoltaic panel system assisting with electricity provision and providing an income from the feed in tariff along with further solar water heating. 

To the rear of the property is a deceptively spacious and substantial garden area which includes a lower stone paved patio seating space with a natural spring well while steps lead up to a gently sloping lawn and several storage areas as well as heavily planted beds and a child's playhouse. 

To the rear of the garden is a large vegetable garden which could be utilised as an additional patio and decked balcony terrace and contains a garden room/home office which has been insulated and used as a separate work area
