Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Looking to escape to the country in style? Look no further. This 4 bed property, built by the Sykes family of Sledmere fame, dates back to the 1890s and is steeped in history. If only walls could talk we wonder what they would say?Come see for yourself how this could be your perfect retreat.

My oh my. This property oozes history. Originally 2 separate cottages it has been reconfigured and extended over the years to evolve into the substantial house it is today. Its versatile living space and large gardens provide the perfect backdrop for a wonderful family home. You will want to put your own mark on it but you've got a very good starter for 10.

The medieval village of Kirkburn is steeped in history with a number of artefacts now located in the British Museum. There's also a Norman Church that has stood the test of time. It's just short of 4 miles from Driffield and a little over 14 miles from Beverley so you can consider yourself nestled away in the peace and quiet of the countryside but not really that far from the nearest market town.

There are 2 driveways to this property so ample off road parking. The driveways are to either side of the front lawn - the one to the right being directly in front of the double garage which, for your convenience, has an automatic door. Just glide in and there's a courtesy door you can use that will bring you out into the rear garden.

Step inside. Where to begin? The entrance hallway is wide and welcoming and leads through to the dining/sitting room, lounge and breakfast/kitchen.

It goes without saying all rooms are a good size. You have a great choice and deciding what purpose each room is going to serve very much depends upon your own individual needs.

The lounge has a very attractive inglenook fireplace which is a lovely feature and clearly the focal point. A multi fuel burner creates a fabulous cosy atmosphere and its easy to imagine the many fun filled gatherings of family and friends you could enjoy in here. Double doors open out onto the rear garden and this is a lovely feature to have especially during the warmer months.

The dining/sitting room is a multi purpose room and could also be a playroom or a teenagers den - the list is endless and these are all great options to have.

The spacious breakfast/kitchen room is towards the rear and has a wonderful view of the garden. There's a great range of wooden base and wall units and contrasting granite counter tops. A Leisure Rangemaster cooker will no doubt be a big hit with any budding Jamie Oliver or Mary Berry and once again you can imagine being able to entertain in this room.

Beyond the kitchen is another room we have called the kitchen parlour. This offers the new owner plenty of scope and potential. It's currently used as a holding area for the family dogs but a suggestion here would be to merge with the already large kitchen and create an extra large living dining kitchen, add bi-folding doors that open out onto the rear garden and make it the hub of the home.

Also to be found off the parlour is a downstairs cloakroom and a laundry room, which houses the boiler, plus the washing machine and dryer.

The rear garden is substantial in size and very private and has been tastefully landscaped within the past 6 years. There are 2 vast areas of lawn, split by a fence. There is an abundance of mature shrubs, a pond and patio area .
Currently it suits the owners for their dogs to enjoy the freedom of the lawn to the far end. They have cleverly designed a secret pathway which runs down the left hand side of the rear garden. This enables the dogs to use the far lawn without putting a paw on the near lawn.

To the upstairs are 4 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a study, 2 substantial storage rooms and a room currently being used as a home cinema/music room. Again, there is scope and versatility up here to change the rooms to suit your own needs.

The Master bedroom is a very large double and has a lovely varnished wooden floor and a view across the rear garden.

One of the bathrooms has the luxury and decadence of a free standing roll top bath in addition to a shower cubicle and Jack & Jill hand wash basins.

It's very hard to convey in words just how special this property is and what further potential it holds. Please take a good look at our photographs to get a better feel for this and also study the 2D and 3D colour floor plans.

If you think this could be the perfect hideaway for you and your family please call us to make an appointment to view. We will be delighted to show you round at a time that best suits you.
