Kirk Syke is a substantial stone built village property, originally constructed in C1904 with an interesting history. It was constructed to introduce a doctor’s surgery into the village and subsequently converted into a small hotel in the 1960s – a use which continued until the mid 1990s. The property has been carefully maintained during the owners 20 year occupation and provides spacious family accommodation with some lovely period features. To complement the accommodation to the main house, there is a detached bungalow to the rear which has been cleverly converted into two self contained apartments, ideal for multigenerational family living or separate letting purposes. Each apartment has a sitting room, breakfast kitchen, double/twin bedroom and a bathroom/shower room.
The accommodation to the main house is arranged over two floors and includes an entrance hall, reception hall, sitting room, dining room, study, breakfast room, utility/cloakroom and a kitchen. On the first floor is a landing, principal bedroom with a dressing room and an en suite bathroom, four further bedrooms (two have en suite facilities) and a house shower room.
Outside, the property is approached off the High Street via a gated entrance which leads into a bonded resin driveway, providing parking for a number of vehicles. There is an attractive garden to the rear which opens into an orchard area, planted with a variety of fruit trees. Within the garden there is a summer house and storage area.
