INTRODUCTION

Hesketh Hall is an exceptional country house that has it all ! To put it simply “ Seeing is Believing “

The principle house is beautiful to look at and has been remodelled, extended and hugely improved during the current owner’s time there. The accommodation is all in superb order and portrays, style, quality and panache. The Cottage and Flat provide not only useful secondary accommodation for staff or loved ones but also excellent income revenues as holiday cottages or rental homes if required. The grounds are immaculate and private and the location is nothing other than astonishing.

The setting of Hesketh Hall is of incomparable loveliness and sits in the heart of its own land outside the village of Boltby, with no immediate neighbours. Its gardens, grounds, cottage, outbuildings and outlook all significantly contribute to the quality of the whole. Hesketh Hall is an outstanding family home sensitively restored and enjoying fine interiors throughout and represents a once in a generation opportunity.

• Detached and perfectly proportioned house.
• Constructed in 1850 but has the advantage of not being Listed
• Recent renovations include: extensive damp proof work undertaken; new roof and insulation; newly decorated exterior; new roof on the stables and cottage.
• Period features include: an original Mouseman fireplace in the drawing room, working fireplaces, window seats and fine plasterwork
• Exceptional kitchen/dining/living room of generous proportions lined with magnificent double-glazed windows and French doors that open into the garden. There is underfloor heating, a bespoke fitted kitchen from The Main Furniture Company, Marble Arts granite worktops, an oil-fired Aga and wood-burning stove. A large boot room and utility room with stable door and walk-in pantry.
• The drawing and dining rooms, each with south facing bay windows are connected through double doors which, when opened up create a dramatic entertaining space that also connects to the gardens and large terrace beyond.
• Fine central staircase hall with log burning stove that connects all the principal rooms
• Well designed bedroom space, ideal for a family, with potential to create a northern wing incorporating a self-contained suite of two bedrooms with a bathroom
• Significant potential income from The Cottage and Flat
• 2 separate entrances to the property, each with their own drive
• Sheltered setting nestled in a bright wooded valley with views towards the Moors
• 15 minutes’ drive to Thirsk and its railway station with a regular connection to London


Outside:

The principal house, its courtyard and adjoining outbuildings are set in the heart of the land, well screened, secluded and private. There are two entrances with drives and electric gates. One from the east that sweeps past the buildings into the courtyard, and one from the south that works perfectly for entertaining. The gardens and grounds are varied and beautifully maintained: the generous lawns with herbaceous borders surround three sides of the property; there is a sheltered all-season tennis court on the northern boundary with views towards the Moors; a venerable orchard, part-walled; a paddock on the southern boundary and a wildlife lake and three ponds that lie along the eastern boundary of the property following the course of the beck and safely behind fencing. This exquisite woodland area has enchanting mowed pathways that snake around the ponds. A natural spring feeds the lake and ponds and is also enjoyed as a natural water feature at the rear entrance to the house. The whole is securely bounded by a combination of wire and wood fencing, mature hedging and stone walls.

Outbuildings and Courtyard:

• Known as ‘The Cottage’, Three double bedroom cottage (income approximately £9,000 per annum) has its own garden terrace and parking area, and enjoys privacy because it faces away from the main house towards the tennis court and distant Moors beyond.
• The self-contained two double bedroom flat (income approximately £5,340 per annum) sits above the garage/office, with a barn staircase to the rear. It is currently let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy basis.Vacant possession will be granted on legal completion.

• Two linked stables with feeders and a water supply.
• Dog kennel with a pretty outdoor run
• Double garage
• Large weather-proof barn

There are main line railway stations at York, Northallerton and Thirsk providing services to London King’s Cross, Newcastle and Edinburgh as well as the Trans Pennine route. A full range of local facilities are available in the thriving and popular market towns of Northallerton, Thirsk and Helmsley.
