Full descriptionHISTORICAL NOTE
Known as the "Yellow Earl" Hugh Lowther - the fifth Earl of Lonsdale lived at Barleythorpe with his wife Grace - one of 4 houses he enjoyed hunting with the Cottesmore.
The Hall was sold in 1926 to fund the extravagant lifestyle he enjoyed - he resided in Barleythrope village until his death in 1944 - breeding racehorses
rather than hunters.
The Hall fell into disrepair after a period as an elderly persons home and is now being redeveloped by the noted developer Hazelton Homes into an elegant family home.
With planning consent to extend to over 8000 feet Barleythorpe Hall will become a high specification house with a huge level of flexible family accommodation.
Incorporating the major bays of the original Hall, the house will benefit from a south facing terrace overlooking formal gardens and grounds through which the separate driveway will pass.
The contemporary space will accentuate the light and the high ceilings will provide a true feel of historical grandeur.
As can be seen from the floorplans the main door will open into the glorious Great Hall and living area. Doors feed to the Kitchen Breakfast room and the Sitting Room and inner halls lead to Utility areas and a Study.
On the first floor there will be a fantastic Principal Bedroom Suite, 3 further Guest Suites, 2 Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom.
Served from a private driveway from Manor Lane the gardens and grounds feature many specimen trees and a pond, the property adjoins open countryside and will enjoy views over the rolling hills
to the west of the village.
There will be a large terrace which faces south and west.
There will be garage block to accommodate 5 cars and workshops to the south east of Barleythorpe Hall and this building will also provide storage and ancillary accommodation.
In all approximately 2.7 acres (1.09 ha).
