Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
9 The Balk was originally erected in 1880 for the purposes of a hospital, in memory of the late Thomas Wilson M.D. of Pocklington, this substantial period property closed soon after and became a much loved family residence. Retaining an abundance of many features including sash windows, ceiling cornices and original fireplaces. The property is ripe for renovation and re-style making it an excellent purchase for the discerning buyer to mark their own stamp. Externally there is a gravelled driveway to the front providing ample off road parking leading to the double garage. To the rear there are various outbuildings which includes stables and two storey barn, large glasshouse with swimming pool (not in use). The extensive rear garden is a true oasis just waiting to be discovered. This is an unrivalled opportunity to acquire what in our opinion is surely one of Pocklington's most desirable houses.
