Main Street, Ellerker

Ellerker, East Yorkshire, HU15 2DH

Bursting with character and great appeal is this truly unique detached property which stands close to the centre of the beautiful conservation village of Ellerker. Elder Cottage is a very special home indeed which has in recent times been remodelled, extended and skilfully created by true craftsmen. If you are looking for a home of individuality and great character then this surely could be the one.

The property stands in delightful grounds and can be entered through either pair of automated gates, with intercom/video entry system, providing access to parking and the garage. The rear gardens enjoy a westerly aspect and have been cleverly landscaped to include patio areas, a veranda, shaped lawns and an array of borders. There is also an allotment area to one corner of the grounds. A useful outbuilding is ideal for storage or as a work shop and has a small balcony patio which provides views across countryside.

The accommodation has an abundance of character, clearly evident upon entering the reception hallway with its beams and grand fireplace housing a log burner. There is a sumptuous sitting room, lovely sun room, again with a stove, and the heart of the house is the dining kitchen complete with Aga (conventional oven also fitted). There is also a separate study and downstairs cloaks/W.C. At first floor are four bedrooms, two being en-suite. The fourth bedroom is currently being utilised as a dressing room to the master although the owners are prepared to reinstate into a separate bedroom before completion should a purchaser so wish.

In all a wonderful home in a highly desirable village - early viewing is strongly recommended.


The property stands in the beautiful conservation village of Ellerker which lies approximately 14 miles to the west of Hull and is regarded as one of the area's most unspoilt villages being clustered around the green and running beck and with a restaurant/pub. The village is conveniently placed for travelling with immediate access available to the A63 leading into Hull city centre to the east and the M62 motorway network to the west with Leeds and York approximately 45 minutes driving distance away. The historic market town of Beverley lies nearby and the village of Brough, approximately 5 minutes driving time away, has an excellent range of shops and amenities plus its own mainline railway station providing a direct service to London Kings Cross. Ellerker lies at the foot of the Yorkshire wolds and is ideally placed for those with an interest in country pursuits, the area also affords a range of recreational facilities including the nearby Brough golf course.
