Substantial range of outbuildings
Landscaped gardens and grounds


A MOST CHARMING CONVERSION OF A COURTYARD OF TRADITIONAL BUILDINGS IN AN ELEVATED POSITION SET AMIDST THE RENOWNED SLEDMERE ESTATE

Collingwood Fold occupies an enviable elevated position just a short distance north east of the historic village of Sledmere, home to the Sykes family, the East Riding’s greatest 19th Century landowners, who still own and control the eponymous mansion house and surrounding estate and who are largely responsible for maintaining the unique character and beauty of the surrounding countryside which in itself adds considerably to the setting and appeal of Collingwood Fold. Sledmere itself is located in the heart of the attractive rolling countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds and lies approximately equidistant between the main commercial centres of York and Hull whilst the wider motorway network may be joined at junction 37 of the M62 at Howden which lies about 31 miles away to the south. The village itself has the benefit of a public house, church and shop whilst in nearby Wetwang there are two public houses, two churches, a general store, nursery/pre-school primary school, doctors’ surgery and an active village hall. A comprehensive range of local facilities is available in Great Driffield, the “Capital of the Wolds” which lies close by.

Collingwood Fold’s origins are an agricultural homestead centred upon a modest dwelling (now disappeared) and as was typical at the time, comprised a substantial range of brick and pantile buildings constructed in the vernacular style and principally devoted to the keeping of livestock. The present owner has skilfully and imaginatively converted the courtyard to form a most pleasing and comfortable dwelling of quite some quality and style arranged around a sheltered central courtyard which is a most charming feature of this fine property.

The accommodation has been stylishly created from the original buildings and internally is redolent of a period country house rather than a more recently created dwelling. Of particular note is the well proportioned south east facing Drawing Room which has an attractive Pine floor, exposed timbers, fine fireplace with tiled hearth housing a wood burning stove and two wall light points and makes for a most comfortable and elegant principal reception room of great character, ideal for entertaining on all scales. Approached also off the Reception Hall is a convenient Family Room leading to a fine Garden Room so arranged as to catch the sun whilst at the same time offering a wonderful open aspect over the formal part of the gardens. Close by is the Kitchen with an oil fired Rayburn stove, single drainer stainless steel sink unit and vegetable sink and four ring induction hob which opens to a good sized informal Breakfast/Dining area overlooking the gardens. The principal Bedroom is arranged on the first floor with a Dressing Room and ensuite Bathroom whilst the remainder of the ground floor is given over to three further Bedrooms and a house Bathroom all of which look towards the courtyard. Two further rooms are currently given over to stores but equally, could be converted to further accommodation if required.

The remainder of the courtyard is given over to a Workshop complete with workbench (and also incorporating a Freezer Room), an Oil Store and a Garage whilst the central portion of the western wing is given over to a spacious Barn open to the ridge and providing access from the outside to the garden within. There is therefore ample scope for further development of the complex if desired (subject to planning and other necessary consents).

The grounds have been skilfully landscaped by the present owners who have undertaken a comprehensive programme of imaginative tree planting to include a number of specimen trees including Yew, Hazel, Beech, Cherry, Pine, Oak, Sorbus and Hornbeam. Immediately to the front of the house and adjoining the Garden Room is the more formal part of the grounds which comprises a lawn bordered by a Beech perimeter hedge adjacent to which are variegated Holly, Pine, Apple and Viburnum. Beyond is a further area of trees to include specimen Spanish Chestnut, Ash, Hazel, Hornbeam, Birch and Field Maple.

Viewing is strictly by appointment through the sole agents, Messrs Humberts York office, telephone (01904) 611828.
