Horkstow House – family history writ large.

Horkstow House is a six bedroom Grade II Listed statement country home of elegant discernment and taste enjoying stunning western views across the Ancholme valley.

The balance and proportion typical of its 1750 origins has been beautifully enhanced by a delicate refurbishment to create a space ideal for both formal and informal entertaining in which the retained period detail is finely balanced by contemporary styling.

The classic reception hall with its return staircase immediately welcomes with its warmth and gentle dignity. A stylish sitting room superbly balances both the formal 15’ dual aspect dining room and the stunning drawing room and is further complemented by the relaxed snug in which the cast iron stove creates an easy, intimate private space. The informal social heart of the home is undoubtedly the 28’ split level bespoke breakfast kitchen with its island unit, integrated appliances, Aga and Rayburn: the quintessential modern kitchen.

A distinctive master suite with a 25’3 south facing bedroom, modern bathroom and separate shower room is arranged on the half landing whilst the main landing serves a further three generous bedrooms – all of which display excellent fireplaces together with a large family bathroom. Flexibility is again evident to the second floor on which there are currently an additional two bedrooms, a studio and a study.

Horkstow House discreetly stands within approximately three quarter of an acre landscaped and lawned grounds which include specimen Yews, mature shrubs and an orchard with walnut and damson trees whilst a driveway opening to a side reception area with double garage beyond ensures that both family and friends alike are easily accommodated.

Horkstow House is an integral part of the hamlet of Horkstow which enjoys a history beyond its size: the 11th Century St. Maurice Church has Templar Knights connections, it was home to the painter George Stubbs and was once associated with a Roman village and home to the famous Horkstow mosaic pavements. It is also readily accessible to the M180 motorway network which provides connections to the region’s major communication centres and further beyond.

This stunning family home epitomises easy grace and charm: a home which gently asserts its dignity whilst generously accommodating friends and family alike.
