Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Dating back to 1767, Danby Hall has been in the same family for several generations and this is only the second time the property has been released to the open market. The property was last sold to the current family 63 years ago. Danby Hall is built of red brick elevations, set under a slate tile roof. The front façade is symmetrical in style, with two large bayed wings adjoining a handsome Georgian core. The entrance hall, with its columned porch, offers an impressive welcome into the house and opens into the reception rooms on the ground floor, all of which are south facing.

The drawing room is particularly striking with its open fireplace, intricate cornicing, panelled wall features and large sash bay windows with the original working shutters. The kitchen/breakfast room, with its Racing Green electric AGA, is a light and bright space, with wonderful south facing views across the lawn. Again, the kitchen is situated in one of the bay wings, giving this room wonderful tall sash windows and a window seat for quiet contemplation with morning coffee. There is also a separate electric cooker and a breakfast bar and hatch into the adjoining dining room. The kitchen benefits from a rear kitchen, walk in pantry and large utility room.

There is one cloakroom on the ground floor, including a separate bathroom. A rear and side door with porch area for coats and boots offers access to the northerly and westerly courtyards and outbuildings. From the back hall, there is also access to the wine cellar.

Rising to the first floor, up an elegant staircase, with an arched window overlooking the rear courtyard, are six bedrooms and an impressive oval shaped ball room, currently used as a magnificent dining room. Three large sash windows take in the far reaching views across the parkland, making for a light and airy room. With an open fireplace, intricate cornicing and a ceiling rose, this room would have been a majestic ball room in the past.

The master bedroom, with bay windows overlooking the lawns, has an en-suite bathroom and an open fireplace. There are five further bedrooms on the first floor, along with a family bathroom and an additional cloakroom. Leading to the second floor are a further four/five bedrooms, a shower room and a substantial tank room. Worthy of note on this floor is the glass light tunnel, which bounces light across the landing. There are two staircases in the house, making for flexible accommodation and a good sense of flow throughout.

Set amongst rolling parkland and positioned down a private tree lined drive, Danby Hall offers privacy and seclusion, without being too isolated. The bustling market town of Northallerton lies a few miles to the south, and caters for most day-to-day needs, with a wide range of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops - including the Bettys famous tearoom. Further amentities include a cinema, hotels, and a main line railway station with direct trains to London Kings Cross.

A detached Coach House offers selfcontained annexe accommodation to the main house, with three bedrooms, one bathroom and a shower room, a sitting room and study. Adjoining the Coach House is a double bay garage with further garaging/storage. Various Estate outbuildings extend from here making for ample storage for tools, tractors and fencing. A separate domestic outbuilding on the western elevation offers storage for garden equipment, coal, wood and even a chilled game larder.

The property sits amongst ancient parkland, all of which has been carefully maintained and managed by the current owners with two Herbage Agreements already in place, which could easily be transferred to the new owners. Please speak to the agents for further information on these agreements.

The land offers excellent grazing and income potential as well as a range of sporting opportunities. There are also sporting rights on an additional 20 acres of land on the northern boundary, which could be transferred to the new owner.

Easements, wayleaves and rights of way: The property is offered as appropriate with and subject to rights of way either public or private wayleaves, easements and other rights of way whether these are specifically referred to or not. A public right of way runs along the Northern boundary of the Estate, away from the main house along an old green lane.
