Full Description
DESCRIPTION Welcome to Clocksmith House, George Street, Pocklington.
One of Pocklington's most elegant late Georgian properties, this beautifully restored heritage home, dating from the 1870s, offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of history and settle in a charming market town on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds.
It was once owned by Edward Wilkinson, an RAF WW2 veteran and renowned precision engineer and clock maker. His jewellery shop was located elsewhere in Pocklington, but the clock repairs were carried out in a workshop at 24 George Street. The current owners, having lovingly restored the property throughout, named the house in Edward's memory.
With a sensitivity to the building's heritage, the owners faced quite a challenge to bring the house into the 21st century and create a home for future generations to cherish. The addition of an extension and the careful preservation of the classic main features has been carried out sympathetically and with great attention to detail. With the original bathroom and kitchen located at the rear and accessed through a bedroom the project required clever thinking and a flair for remodelling.
Now the property boasts four comfortable bedrooms, of which three are doubles, with the added luxury of En suites. A roll top bath and Georgian fittings add to the sense that you are in an elegant period town house, complete as it is, with secret doors and beautiful fireplaces.
The brilliantly executed process of transformation and renewal also includes a spectacular double height galleried landing above the dining kitchen on the ground floor, where you'll find a hand crafted, granite-topped breakfast island and cosy under floor heating throughout.
At the heart of the house, spilling natural light, is an orangery, ideal for dining, with access out to the secluded walled garden, complete with stone flags, raised borders, mature shrubs and a generous outdoor seating area.
The double aspect living room to the rear of the property enjoys garden views. With Georgian style coving, a dropped ceiling and recessed lighting, this is an ideal family space with the added warmth of a discreet and modern recessed fireplace.
To the rear of the property there also stands a substantial double garage with studio room above that provides the perfect space for home office working, all set within the private walled garden.
Panelled walls, a lantern roof and window seating are just some of the stylish features within this property that distinguish it as a most unique and sophisticated home.
