Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Ravenswick is potentially one of North Yorkshire's finest houses, standing on rising ground just outside the southern boundary of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park close to the town of Kirkbymoorside.


Ravenswick is shielded from the gaze of the outside world by its own mature wooded landscape with agricultural amenity land and a long private driveway. The house dates back to approximately 1740, when it formed part of the Duncombe Park Estate. The current vendor has had the vision to remodel the accommodation for modern family occupation. Extensive structural work has been carried out to improve the layout which even includes installation of a new main staircase. The purchaser will be able to mark their stamp on the property whilst completing the works and decorating. The room sizes are beautifully proportioned and the overall square footage provides substantial family accommodation that would suit most requirements.

Adjacent to the property are an excellent range of outbuildings with planning in place for guest or staff accommodatio. Consent has been applied for a general purpose farm building, a helicopter pad and fantastic tree house.


Principal House

The principal house could comprise: staircase hall, drawing room, dining room, library, family kitchen, banquet kitchen, playroom, reception rooms, billiard room, gun room, two offices, conservatory, guest bathroom, utility room, garden hall, logia, master bedroom suite and sitting room, 5 further guest suites and cinema.

The Lodge

Ravenswick Lodge stands to the north west of the main house and comprises a modernised four bedroom cottage with two reception rooms.

The property stands in circa 93 acres of parkland and mature woodland.

Please see the full particulars for further details.



Kirkbymoorside is a charming market town situated between Pickering and Helmsley which also offer good facilities and amenities.


From the A170 take the road to the north signposted Hutton-le-Hole. Pass the Ravenswick sawmill on the right hand side. The stone gate post marks the start of the drive on the right hand side. The drive leads through the parkland to the parking area beside the house.
