Possibly the most illustrious address in the region, No 1 Yorkshire is the first property you encounter as you cross the border on the old Great North Road from Nottinghamshire into Bawtry just south of Doncaster.

Built in 1740, the Grade-II listed, three-storey townhouse oozes character and charm.

No.1 Yorkshire is a fine, Grade II listed three-storey townhouse constructed of red brick in Flemish bond with a pantile roof. The property dates from the late C18 with a later two-storey extension to the rear and has been sympathetically restored retaining original features combined with modern bathrooms and a superbly equipped kitchen. The adjacent coach house provides garaging and storage with the possibility of creating additional accommodation. There is off-road parking for several cars and delightful walled gardens to the rear.

The vestibule and reception hall are an impressive entrance to the property, with a glass floor panel looking down into the main cellars, which have been tanked and fitted as a wine cellar. There are three reception rooms on the ground floor, two having inset multi-fuel stoves. The modern kitchen has an extensive range of units with Corian work surfaces, a large island and breakfast bar, integrated appliances, and a separate utility room.

There is a bedroom reached from the half landing; with the majority of the first floor devoted to the master suite which comprises a large double bedroom with en-suite shower room, the nursery/bedroom six off, and a dressing room with bespoke cabinets. There is also a family bathroom on the first floor, with three further bedrooms on the second floor.

The coach house now provides garaging with a kitchenette and WC to the rear and the former tack room is now a garden store. On the first floor is a large split level room previously used as a studio/gymnasium. The attractively landscaped private walled gardens adjoin Cockhill Lane to the South, with open countryside views towards Scrooby Church and beyond. They offer a large enclosed terrace area which is ideal for entertaining, a separate lawn area sheltered by mature trees and a dog compound with kennelling.
