Lund House is a beautifully proportioned Grade II Georgian Country House set in magnificent gardens and grounds of about 7.4 acres. Although the house stands conveniently within the body of this pretty and much admired village, its wonderful position affords total privacy and the rarity of one of the best uninterrupted countryside views in East Yorkshire, stretching over the eastern part of the Yorkshire Wolds to the coast. IntroductionThe house was constructed as a rectory and originally completed circa 1813. In the 1860\'s the then incumbent added the grand bay windows on the principal reception rooms and erected the adjacent coach house / stabling and a high brick wall along the length of the extensive road frontage. Such is the character and appeal of the property that it was filmed as part of the location for the 1954 film Lease of Life.
The house was completely restored to the current vendors requirements in 1995 and now offers well appointed and manageable accommodation that includes a bespoke hand crafted kitchen, four reception rooms and five bedrooms.
An extensive and exacting programme of landscaping has resulted in Lund House having one of the most attractive gardens in the locality including delightful formal areas with landscape architectural features, sweeping lawns with a pond, woodland boundary paths and a wildlife garden with lake.

Wood store lies adjacent to the north.Gardens And GroundsThe approach to Lund house is through a gated opening with cattle grid within the high perimeter wall that runs along the entire extensive frontage on to North Road. This provides excellent privacy and seclusion which is completed by a row of fine horse chestnuts along this boundary. The gravelled driveway encircles the house, creating a large area of parking adjacent to the outbuildings and allowing visitors to the front of the property to gain views of both the classical facade of the house and its fine views.
Formal Gardens lie to the north and have been painstakingly arranged with numerous features of interest. A view from the kitchen window seat runs directly north along a pathway leading to a moon gate. Landscaped areas adjacent are contained within beech and yew hedges and include a pinetum with a secret summer house. A quarterised orchard includes a further pathway through an arch way of trellis work which includes grapes, pears and roses.
Front GardenAt the front of the house a stone terrace includes steps down through a sloping expanse of lawn which leads to a large pond that is set within a backdrop of shrubbery and trees which screen a childrens activity/play area with a tree house. Park like grounds are flanked by wooded walkways to each side (including an independent access with vehicle gate in the north west boundary on to North Road). The land has a natural slope to the east where there is a wildlife garden to include a small lake with boat jetty that is surrounded by an abundance of wild flowers.ServicesMains water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property.
