Syke House Farm is a fabulous family home presented to an immaculate standard offering spacious and well thought out accommodation full of character, charm and beautiful oak beams throughout. The property is located in a peaceful rural setting yet only 1.5 miles from Harrogate town centre. The accommodation is accessed up stone steps to a pretty entrance porch and front door that opens
into a light and airy reception hallway with aspects to the front and rear. To one side of the hall is the wonderful open plan breakfast kitchen and sitting room which has been designed for modern living and is the real heart of the home. The breakfast kitchen is beautifully appointed with hand painted units, granite surfaces, a free standing centre island, a two oven oil fired Aga, a double ceramic butler’s sink and integrated appliances as well as space for a large American-style fridge freezer. The family room has an exposed stone chimney breast with a wood burning stove and there are bi-fold doors out onto a stone terrace and lovely views over the landscaped gardens and countryside beyond. Both rooms have attractive exposed beams. Steps lead down to an impressive utility room, this also has hand painted units, granite surfaces and integrated appliances, there is a stable door out to the courtyard as well as a ground floor cloak room and WC. Beyond this is a useful study with fitted oak furniture including book shelves, cupboards and partners desk. To the west of the dining hall is the generous drawing room with an inglenook fireplace with a large open fire, leading off this is a cosy snug that benefits from a wood burning stove with a stone hearth. There is also an exterior door to the rear garden. Beyond this is an additional ground floor WC and a staircase that leads up to the magnificent master suite. This boasts a light and airy bedroom with French doors to a Juliet balcony, aspects to the south and a velux window in the roof. There is a luxury modern en-suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe, opposite is a fabulous dressing room with built-in cupboards, wardrobes, shelving and a modern wash basin. The rest of the bedroom accommodation is accessed from the central staircase in the dining hall to the first floor and offers four double bedrooms. There is a guest bedroom with an en-suite shower room, this also has access to a connecting door to the adjacent bedroom offering the potential to create a master bedroom suite with dressing room on this level. A luxury house bathroom services the other bedrooms. All the bathrooms benefit from underfloor heating and the ground floor and master bedroom suite are wired for a Sonos sound system. The property is also wired for a state of the art security system.
Syke House Farm is accessed through electric gates to a gravelled drive and parking area in a courtyard setting. There is garaging for two cars in a stone built arched car port which also has access to a useful store room which provides ample storage and has space for washing machines and dryers as well as a dog shower; adjacent is a further secure storage room. To the front of the property to either side of the entrance porch are pretty raised flowerbeds with box hedging and lavender making a stunning first impression. A lawn wraps around to three sides of the property. There is a gravel path that runs around whole the property and is accessed through gates meaning the whole garden can be made secure, ideal for children and pets. The garden has been expertly designed for outside entertaining; there is a raised stone flagged patio outside the sitting room, steps lead down from this to a lower level seating area flush with the lawn as well as a separate patio, ideal for al fresco dining, and at the far end of the garden is a sheltered patio designed for making the most of the sunshine. An arched pergola with wisteria, climbing roses and clematis runs down the centre of the garden providing a spectacular feature. There are mature well stocked borders framing the garden providing a wonderful place to enjoy the peace and tranquillity.
