Stunning location with panoramic views over the Humber Estuary and beyond, highly individual generous home within approx. 1.5 acres including substantial barn.

DESCRIPTION
Uniquely located with panoramic views over Alkborough Flats, Humber Estuary and into Yorkshire beyond, Pale Close is a highly individual property of bespoke 1960's design. The property delivers a fine combination of generous grounds, in all approximately 1.5 Acres (subject to measured site survey), versatile family living space including indoor swimming pool, substantial 5000 ft² barn and useful amenity areas.

The property offers much scope for further enhancement and a variety of possibilities to cater for home working, multi-generational living and perhaps other development possibilities, subject to all statutory consents.

The accommodation is arranged to capture the spectacular forward views and there are four main reception rooms of lounge, dining room, snug and games room. Two separate conservatories are provided commanding views over the formal grounds and the aforementioned panoramic vista. A wraparound style breakfast kitchen links to a generous utility room and ancillary areas of pantry, boiler and pump room, storeroom and connection to indoor swimming pool.

At first floor level, the bedrooms radiate around the central galleried landing with a master suite boasting a fitted dressing area and en suite bathroom. Three of the bedrooms enjoy the views and the house bathroom is appealing.

The sizeable grounds allow excellent circulation, family relaxation and the enjoyment of home working, hobbies etc. The tarmacadam apron in front of the substantial barn was formerly a tennis court and has more latterly been used for siting of a (now removed) mobile home.

LOCATION
Alkborough is a small village located in the northern end of The Cliff range of hills overlooking Trent Falls and Alkborough Flats with the confluence of the River Trent and River Ouse forming the Humber Estuary.
