Eagle House, Main Street, Skerne, Driffield, East Riding of Yorkshire YO25 9HS

This delightful period house sits in the heart of a rural East Riding village in a relatively undiscovered corner of Yorkshire a short drive from Beverley, a market town with its own Minster and racecourse regarded by the Yorkshire Post as the ‘hottest spot’ in the county. The property itself has had an interesting history: dating from 1822, it was one of only eleven licensed English village inns not to have a conventional bar or serving hatch. Converted, remodelled and beautifully renovated some seven years ago, Eagle House is now a family house, enclosed and private with a lovely garden. Within its early nineteenth century exterior is a high end, stylish, modern home with interiors that sympathetically reflect the juxtaposition between old and new.

Detached, Grade II listed, period house
Versatile accommodation of nearly 2400 sq ft
Stylishly decorated using Farrow & Ball paints
High specification fixtures and fittings throughout
Large, sheltered courtyard patio ideal for sitting out/al fresco
Landscaped gardens designed for enjoyment and entertaining
Village location with a range of excellent local facilities nearby

This is a property dating from the early nineteenth century with deep bay windows added some one hundred years later and linked to provide a porch to the central front door. Further remodelling to the existing footprint and a complete renovation took place between 2013 and 2014. The plumbing, electrics and many of the high end fixtures and fittings date from this period, with two new bathrooms fitted in 2020. The property has been beautifully maintained and is offered in excellent decorative order.

Eagle House is full of fine features including engineered oak floorboards, cottage doors with traditional latches, high quality timber sash windows, two south facing bays, vaulted ceilings, timber window shutters, bespoke fireplaces holding traditional wood burning stoves, contemporary light switches and sockets.

The lovely L-shaped kitchen dining room enjoys ample natural light with its high ceilings and Velux windows, exposed roof trusses, oak floorboards and floor to ceiling glazing with French doors that open to the garden terrace. The kitchen itself is bespoke and of a traditional but contemporary design with granite worktops, integrated appliances, an enamel double sink and larder unit. The adjacent understairs utility/laundry room was formerly the ‘servery’ of the pub where the beer was stored.

The ground floor accommodation is extensive and provides versatile living space with four reception rooms and an integrated garage. Three of the four reception rooms have wood-burning stoves and all but one has oak floorboards fitted. The drawing room has a triple aspect and opens directly on to the garden terrace with a fully glazed door positioned in front of a traditional ledged & braced door.

The bedroom accommodation is segmented and reached via two separate staircases, providing the option to create an entirely self-contained suite/annexe with its own staircase. All of the bedrooms have good ceiling heights and TV points with fitted wardrobes in bedroom 2.  The principal bedroom is beautifully proportioned with a south facing window and a superb en suite bathroom with a shower and freestanding bath, wall of fitted wardrobes, and a pair of sash windows overlooking the garden.

Outside
Secure, high steel-framed gates open to a large gravelled drive providing a turning and parking area for four cars and leading to a single, integral garage.  Alongside the garage, a gate leads to a utility corner housing the oil tank and bins. A large, paved terrace sits within this private and sheltered courtyard area creating an ideal spot for al fresco dining.  The raised area of garden with yew tree standing sentinel is laid to lawn and framed by a clipped box hedge and accessed via shallow stone steps.  On the western boundary a number of climbing hydrangea (Hydreangea Petiolaris) are trained against the timber fence and a well established laurel hedge lines the northern boundary.  The timber summerhouse with power and light faces west across its own patio.  The whole rear garden is enclosed by fencing and fully secure.
