An impressive and elegant period home with classical proportions that has been sympathetically refurbished throughout is now on the market with Dacre, Son & Hartley Harrogate.

Sydenham House offers superb landscaped gardens extending to approximately 0.75 acres and enjoys a private position in the popular village of Aberford. 
Dacre, Son & Hartley’s area director Paul Baxter, said: “With early 19th century origins and strong links to the historic Gascoigne Estate, Sydenham House is a distinctive period home of true style and quality. Sydenham House has historic links to the medical and veterinary professions and we believe the vendors are only the fourth owners of this stunning property.

“Under their careful supervision the property has been sympathetically renovated and improved, whilst ensuring that the intrinsic period features such as flooring, windows, doors and architraves are retained. Particularly close attention has gone into the focal point of the property, a magnificent central hall with a stunning staircase that has original oak balustrade and gallery. This hall provides outstanding entertaining space, whilst giving access to three separate reception rooms, all of which have 12ft high ceilings and a thoughtfully planned family breakfast kitchen with Aga and other useful ancillary rooms including guest cloakroom, large utility room and rear hall.

“The master bedroom boasts its own spacious en-suite wet room/shower room, bedroom three also benefits from an en-suite, whilst three further bedrooms are served by a substantial house bathroom. An exceptional suite of lower ground floor rooms provide everything from a snooker room to wine store and a playroom offering access to the garden. A full width orangery opens up to the ornamental landscaped gardens and is surmounted by an extensive sun terrace off the reception hall. 
“Our client's attention to detail has been extended into the private walled, landscaped gardens and enclosed side and rear courtyard areas which provide gated pedestrian access to Field Lane and the heart of the village. There is vehicle access via remote controlled entrance gates to a parking area and attached double garage.”

Additional amenity space in the form of a nature reserve with lake amounting to just over 2.85 acres is also available for purchase by separate negotiation. 
Paul concluded: “It’s a fabulous property in a great location. Aberford continues to attract discerning family buyers as a result of its local road links with West and North Yorkshire and the major commercial centres of Leeds and York. The village itself has a proud and thriving community spirit based around its heritage, the highly regarded local primary school, popular pubs and village store. A wider range of shops can be found in nearby Wetherby and the surrounding countryside provides lots of recreational facilities.” 

Sydenham House is on the market with a guide price of £1,500,000. Contact the Harrogate office on 01423 877200 for more details or click here.
