A seldom available opportunity to purchase a piece of Driffield history and a property which has been featured in many local history books!
Formerly a corner shop, latterly 'E. Harvatt', the property was converted during the late 1980s into a residential dwelling. It has further been enhanced and extended to craftsman standards and meticulous detail by the current sellers, retaining countless original features and sympathetically adding others. It now represents a most individual, distinctive home the likes of which you are unlikely to find elsewhere.
Being a true 'corner' property the shape and layout of the rooms are of particular interest and should appeal to those wanting something well away from an ordinary home. The accommodation itself includes no less than three reception rooms, four bedrooms and a custom built kitchen.
In addition, there is a very useful garage/store which features a first floor studio. In the agents opinion, this could be utilised / completed for home working amongst a variety of uses.
The property is conveniently situated within only a short walk of the town centre and features two facades, one onto Harper Street itself and the other onto Eastgate South.
In short, this really is a rare opportunity indeed to acquire such a historic and distinctive home.
