Exceptional country residence on the market

Exceptional country residence on the market for the first time in over 100 years

The Grove, an exceptional country residence, steeped in history, has come onto the market for the first time in more than 100 years in the famous horse racing town of Middleham in North Yorkshire.

The superb property with Grade II Listed stone carriage drive gates dating back to the early 19th century, features seven bedrooms, set over four floors, with the added benefit of a successful holiday let property and an additional cottage, newly refurbished, ready-to-run as a holiday home.

Middleham is located on the eastern edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and boasts a castle with the largest keep in the North of England and there are currently 15 horse racing training yards located in and around the town.

John Coleman, head of country house sales at GSC Grays, said: “This really is a wonderful opportunity to own a historic and substantial country home that has not come to market for over a century. The house has retained many of its original features and has the added attraction of potential income from two holiday lets.”

This unique family home includes a self-contained two-bedroom apartment with its own living dining kitchen, ideal for multi-generational living or staff accommodation.

The main entrance hall has a beautiful sweeping cantilevered staircase and a stained glass arched window, and the house has retained classic features including detailed cornicing and picture rails, traditional cast iron radiators and stone-flagged flooring.

The modern dining kitchen has fabulous views over the garden and double doors leading to a snug with a cast iron fireplace, historically known as “The Smoking Room”. There is also a useful Butler’s kitchen and a ground-floor WC.

The dining room has a door connecting to a substantial reception room, currently utilised as a laundry room, with traditional meat hooks, stone surround feature alcove and there is also a large cellar, separated into four rooms, previously used as coal stores and wine cellars.

The first floor of the property has a substantial landing, with staircases leading to two separate floors, various bedrooms and the principal suite. There is a separate landing which can be accessed from the main and rear hall, providing access to the second, fifth and sixth bedrooms.

The Gatehouse is a successful two-bedroom holiday let business and has a private enclosed stone paved patio seating area, with walled boundaries. Beech Tree Cottage is a newly refurbished cottage, which is not currently being utilised as a holiday let, however, with minor works would be ready to commence with bookings.

Outside, there is a large garden including a well-maintained lawn and borders and several stone paved patios with a sheltered seating area with spectacular views over open parkland providing a perfect spot for entertaining.

The market town of Leyburn, known as the gateway to the Dales, is around 2 miles away and is a tourism destination with good communication links to the A1 at Leeming Bar. The nearest train station is at Northallerton (17 miles) with a regular service on the east coast main line to York, Newcastle, London or Edinburgh. Teeside Airport and Leeds Bradford Airport are within easy reach.

The Grove is currently on the market with GSC Grays Leyburn office with a guide price of offers over £1,650,000.  Telephone 01969 600120.
