Freehold for sale

Rossmoor Lodge, Melbourne, York YO42 4SZ

Rossmoor Lodge is a fine country house, listed Grade II. The principal part of the house was built in 1816 for General James Wharton, a hero of Wellington’s Waterloo campaign. He added the splendid front, with its robust staircase, onto an existing smaller house. The whole has been beautifully modernised and brought up to an exemplary contemporary standard, with a magnificent kitchen recently installed. It has large, light rooms, a glorious outlook over parkland, and useful stables and outbuildings.

• Listed Regency house, beautifully restored
• Panelled doors and period fireplaces with marble surrounds
• Generous family accommodation with 6 bedrooms and three bathrooms
• Useful outbuildings and stable yard
• Contemporary kitchen with Aga and electric module
• Formal gardens and railed paddock
• Secluded location with 100m drive
• Enviable location with ideal access to York and M62


The gravelled drive is about 100m long and divides by the house, leading to a parking area on one side and to the stable yard at the rear. It passes the railed paddock with field shelter and manege, and terminates to the north of the house. There is a south and east facing lawned garden with park railings and a splendid old oak; and a private south facing garden behind a hornbeam hedge which is accessed directly from the garden hall and kitchen, via a wide flagged terrace. Beyond, in the SW corner, is a small orchard.

The outbuildings front a parterre garden with central fountain and tumbled stone sets hedged in box, and include playroom, music room, workshop and barn. Behind, and with separate access, stands the stable yard, with 6 loose boxes, haybarn, tackroom with woodburner, and outside WC. There is garaging for 3 or 4 cars, and a tractor shed with dovecote or tower room above.
