**FRICKLEY BECK HOUSE**DETACHED FREEHOLD PROPERTY**
A retreat to the county
By the time you reach the front door of Frickley Beck House, don’t be surprised if you’re already falling for the peaceful appeal of this lovely rural property.
As you turn off from High Field Road running through the centre of the South Yorkshire village of Clayton, you’ll see a pond to one side and an old war
memorial to the other. It has an authentic village feel from the get-go.
Head to the very bottom of a private road off Tan Pit Lane and here lies our latest property to come to market. It feels unique and exciting, with a pretty exterior, neutral decor and charming features throughout – as well as the scope to renovate to your own taste.
It’ll take some temptation to resist reaching for your phone on your arrival to grab a snapshot of this beautiful Yorkshire stone property, set among field views in abundance. It really is picture perfect.
This four-bedroom detached home will have you hooked immediately. Once you’re beyond the wrought-iron gates and onto the immaculate stone-resin driveway, you’ll feel like you’ve arrived at a countryside hideaway.
“I love the appearance of the house and its shape. It’s looks fantastic and has been built bespoke to what we required.”
Named Frickley Beck House due to its close proximity to the beck which flows directly behind the garden, the current owners tell the story of their home with adoration, having bought the land and built the house from scratch back in 1978.
They have created a bespoke, characterful Yorkshire property that works perfectly for families of all sizes and ages.
“When you get the sun out here, you don’t need to go to Spain. It’s absolutely glorious.“
Open and airy living spaces
If open social spaces are on your wish list, you’ll be pleased as you pass through the spacious hallway and past a well-sized cloakroom to enter the home’s dining room and lounge.
These rooms flow seamlessly together through a brick archway and even into the garden through double doors which can be thrown wide open when the weather permits.
For those colder months the brick fireplace and log burner create that much desired traditional characterful charm.
With the double doors at one side and a bay window the other as well as a large window out to the side of the property, there’s tons of natural daylight flooding through here and multiple chances to admire the views wherever you’re sat for the night.
Moving throughout the property, the stunning views of the surrounding garden and countryside are a certainty and very much part of the appeal of this rural retreat.
The country farmhouse style kitchen features dual-aspect windows for a bright and airy morning meal. With enough space for a dining table, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a morning brew. Traditional, neutral décor and a generous amount of worktop space makes cooking for family and friends a breeze. With integrated appliances and a double electric Neff oven, plus an additional utility room just off the kitchen with a second sink and plumbing for a washing machine, you won’t be short of storage or space.
A convenient downstairs WC completes the
“It flows through lovely and has great access out to the garden.“
Luxury touches in the master
As you would expect, the master bedroom is the largest in the house with a king-sized bed comfortably accommodated, alongside built-in wardrobes and a dressing table.
An en-suite shower room complete with an integral sound system and steam facility in the shower is a bonus, plus your own private sauna if you’re really feeling in the mood to relax and unwind at the end of your day.
Room for more
Bedrooms two and three are both generous doubles and face the fields to the front of the house so there’s unlikely to be anyone disappointed whether they’re used as children’s bedrooms or for overnight guests.
They both offer great storage space with huge scope and a blank canvas to update the simple decor.
The fourth bedroom is a smaller single and could work equally well as either a home office or a nursery for the newest addition to the family.
“We love this house and it’ll take some beating for our next move.”
Soak in style
A recently modernised family bathroom sits between the master bedroom and bedroom four at the rear of the house.
A slick modern four-piece suite including a large shower cubicle and free-standing angular bath tub are tasteful and spacious, perfect for the whole family to get ready for the day ahead. Charcoal marble effect tiles complete the contemporary, minimalist look.
Lots of potential up top
Don’t be fooled once you’ve finished perusing the upstairs, there’s more to come.
Lift the loft hatch and lower the stairs to reveal a bonus blank canvas one floor up.
A fully boarded loft is the jewel in the crown for a larger family or those with older children who want their own space.
Carpeted and with great headroom, there’s loads of potential here to create an extra bedroom or perhaps a playroom or large office.
There’s heaps of storage with cupboards set into the eves too.
It’s the kind of space which needs to be seen to be fully appreciated but when you consider the current owner used to home a full-size pool table in one half of the space up here, you can quickly imagine how great the opportunity is.
Surrounded by green fields
Across a property with so much to offer, the garden space is an outstanding highlight and best saved for last.
You can instantly see that the current owners have taken great pride in maintaining the half acre of land which runs round the entire circumference of the property with the striped lawn an epitome of pinpoint precision and care.
Beyond this, you’re blessed with field views to the front as far as the eyes can see.
Even within the sleepy village of Clayton, this home offers unrivalled seclusion, privacy and a peaceful quiet; the trickling water from the pond is the only noise you’ll hear when you find the time to relax in the grounds.
There’s plenty to keep those who are green fingered by nature busy with an array of mature trees, well-kept shrubs, plants and flowers as well as a large strawberry patch allowing you to pick your own when the season comes round.
With a patio area at both the front and back of the property, you’ll be spoilt for sunshine all-day long and with the front area raised upon a terrace above the double garage, there’s plenty of space for sunbeds as well as an outdoor table for dining to embrace the al-fresco lifestyle.
The scope for hosting a BBQ or garden party will reach a whole new level here at Frickley Beck House.
“It’s so peaceful and relaxing here; we’re pretty spoilt with what we have here.“
