Sicklinghall, Wetherby, LS22
An impressive four bedroom south facing detached period farmhouse quietly situated adjacent to delightful open countryside, within walking distance of Sicklinghall Village, with well-balanced accommodation, extensive lawned gardens and excellent parking/garaging - in all just over half an acre.
This charming double fronted traditional Yorkshire farmhouse occupies an enviable position amidst delightful countryside immediately to the east, and within 5 minutes' walk of the sought after village of Sicklinghall and within easy travelling distance of Wetherby town centre.
Skerry Grange was formerly a working farm but in recent years the period buildings have been sympathetically transformed into a select development of just three high quality homes each enjoying their own privacy and independence.
Tastefully appointed throughout the accommodation is ideally suited to family occupation and planning permission has been previously approved for a carefully designed two storey extension. (Now expired reference 6.149.59FUL) - further details on request.
The farmhouse is accessed via a central reception hall which serves a playroom/study and a separate family room which could also provide home office space. A substantial dining kitchen is a perfect place for relaxation and entertaining featuring extensive granite work surfaces with marble tiled splashbacks, integrated appliances and a double Rangemaster oven with induction hob.
The principal sitting room is both spacious and elegant having a feature fireplace and there is also a rear entrance hall with guest cloakroom and separate utility room/laundry.
At first floor level there are four large double family bedrooms which enjoy delightful aspects across countryside and garden areas. Two of these rooms share a cleverly designed en-suite shower room thus creating a perfect and private zone for growing teenagers and guests. Finally, a spacious contemporary house bathroom serves the two larger bedrooms which are peacefully located at the rear of the farmhouse.
The delightful southerly-facing gardens are predominately laid to lawns along with a cottage garden and numerous raised beds and the gardens are bounded by screening hedgerows and boundary fencing with a lengthy driveway providing off road visitor car parking to the front of a substantial double detached garage with provision for remote controlled doors.
Finally, there is a useful stone outbuilding and gardeners WC and in all the gardens amount to approximately 0.512 acres. This is a peaceful setting for the busy commuter seeking a haven from the pressures of business life without sacrificing ease of access to Sicklinghall's thriving community which boasts a highly regarded primary school, welcoming village hall and cricket club and the renowned Scotts Arms which is the hub of village life. An extensive range of shopping and leisure amenities are available in the nearby market town of Wetherby.
