Description

A spectacular grade II* Palladian House surrounded by the beautiful National Trust Studley Royal Deer Park.

Description

Studley Royal House stands in a magnificent elevated and private position surrounded by the protected National Trust Studley Royal Deer Park, with spectacular views across the park and beyond to Ripon Cathedral. The park, which extends to about 800 acres, was modelled by Capability Brown and is now under the protection of the National Trust. It is home to a substantial herd of deer which include Fallow, Red and Manchurian Sika and boasts the beautiful and renowned 18th Century water gardens, fed by the river Skell which meanders past the ruins of Fountains Abbey.

Listed Grade Il*, the house incorporates the convenience of modern living with the elegance of a classic period house. Constructed of stone under a slate roof and having distinct pavilion towers in each of the four corners the house surrounds a central square courtyard overlooked by all of the main rooms and dominated by the working clock tower. Internally the house has been beautifully designed and finished and now provides numerous elegant reception rooms and bedroom suites ideal for both family and formal entertaining. Features throughout include high ceilings, many with intricate plaster work, panelling, detailed cornicing, carved door surrounds, working shutters, and elegant sash windows which provide stunning views across the deer park and courtyard.

Approached through the deer park from the East Gate, a long drive flanked by an avenue of limes leads to a private spur which forks right and leads across the park and over the Ha-Ha to the East Front of Studley Royal House. Tall automatic wrought iron gates are positioned in the central arch of the classical seven bay arcade and lead into the central courtyard A raised central stone fountain has a cobbled turning circle surrounded with intricate and beautifully manicured parterre gardens with clipped privet hedges and topiary to each corner bordered by numerous lower and fern beds and incorporating climbing roses and passion flowers. The courtyard is floodlit by eight wrought iron lanterns.

Situated to the west of the house and approached through a coach arch from the courtyard are beautifully manicured and very private formal lawned gardens. A gravelled walk runs around the perimeter of the gardens between a hornbeam and separate yew hedge which protect the gardens. Elegant stone steps lead down from the pathway to the formal lawn with a large Italian garden, central Lily-pond and stone fountain. To the four corners are meticulously maintained flower borders incorporating privet hedges, clipped yew and extensive topiary. Part of the gardens are held on an assignable 99-year lease dated 21 March 1990.
