Residential Showcase

Tranby Rise

Built to a classical Georgian style, this outstanding residence has been finished to the highest standard seen in many years. It stands in superbly manicured grounds covering approximately 0.8 acres, while its elevated position commands superb views of the countryside.

The property is well placed for all local amenities, with first-class shopping and good local schooling in nearby Hessle. There are excellent road and rail connections, with the Humber Bridge, A63 and Hessle rail station all around a mile away.

Accommodation is arranged over the ground floor and one upper floor. The standard of finish throughout is spectacular. The entrance reception hall features polished limestone flooring, staircase with galleries and turned wood balustrade.

The living room is the centrepiece of the house and features contemporary-style radiator covers and a raised inset limestone fireplace, with a contemporary log-effect fire. The substantial open-plan kitchen has many interesting features including solid granite worktops, central island unit and integrated American-style refrigerator. The day room leads onto the orangery via double French doors. With limestone flooring and enjoying an all-round aspect of the rear-garden, this part of the house offers tremendous opportunity for entertaining.

To the first floor, five spacious bedrooms – the master being over 32 square meters in area – and three bathrooms afford generous and luxurious space for both residents and guests.

From the outside a brick pillared gateway, with electronically-operated wrought-iron gate, give way to an expansive driveway. The front garden is mainly lawned and features ornamental shrubs and plants. Mature hedging provides excellent screening from the main road. The rear garden is a particular feature of the property, with a full-width terrace, a central stone footpath and manicured box hedging creating an extremely pleasant aesthetic. A double garage features electronically operated doors.

The Manor House

The Manor House is without doubt one of the finest homes to come onto the market in recent times. It is set towards the head of an exclusive road close to the centre of Swanland – considered to be one of the finest villages in the region, conveniently located close to the Humber Bridge, with excellent links to the A63 (M62). There is a rail station in North Ferriby, only five minutes away by car.

Access to The Park is gained through a pillared entrance which originally formed one of the entrances to Swanland Manor, long since demolished, home of the prominent Reckitt family. The property is arranged on the ground and one upper floor. Living accommodation is spacious and beautifully finished, with a wide variety of features including a deep, walk-in bay window in the drawing room, Italian tiling which extends across the kitchen and family room and a back-lit, built-in aquarium in the day room.

Both house and grounds offer a superb combination of heritage and state-of-the-art. A surround-sound system has been installed in all interior rooms and terrace, for use with an iPod, computer, CD or radio. Pillared electronically-operated wrought iron gates give access to the long, sweeping drive, leading to the garage and forecourt. By contrast, the mature grounds feature superb lawns and trees, and gardens to the rear are sectioned off by a selection of shrubs, bushes and old-brick walls.

A particularly charming feature is the substantial orangery, which can be accessed from the kitchen and family room. A side door from the orangery leads via a colonnade to the garaging, while double opening doors within the western elevation give access to the large terrace.
This is a unique and substantial property set within one of the finest parts of the East Riding.
