Southfield, Hessle

Hessle, East Yorkshire, HU13 0EU

Southfield Villa is a spectacular double fronted detached Victorian residence standing in the beautiful Southfield conservation area, characterised by many fine homes of distinction along a stunning tree lined boulevard. This tremendous property has been thoughtfully and lovingly refurbished over the years by the present owners, who have enhanced the wealth of period features with a magnificent contemporary open plan kitchen/dining/living arrangement, complete with bi-folding doors leading out to the attractive gardens beyond. The character and features can only be fully appreciated by an internal inspection and the owners have created an aspirational home which enjoys a cosy family feel, yet is ideal for entertaining both inside and out. The ground floor space also includes a separate sitting room, dining room with illuminated underfloor wine cellar to corner, fabulous living room, and the practicalities of a separate utility and boot room. The ground floor is completed by an indoor heated swimming pool complex and sauna. At first floor are four bedrooms including a luxurious master suite with feature designer bath set in the bay window, en-suite wet room and dressing room. There is also an en-suite to bedroom two and a house bathroom.

Outside, the property is approached through twin automated entrance gates and mature hedging provides seclusion. A driveway leads to the bottom of the garden where the garage complex is sited with double garage and games room above. There is also a summerhouse looking back at the property. The rear garden has been attractively set out incorporating an extensive paved patio, shaped lawns and ornamental pond. Again mature borders provide much seclusion.

This is a particularly special property which combines the impressive character and appeal of a traditional home with the luxuries of modern living.
