Historic county manor house goes on sale

The Manor House.

An historic 16th century manor house which has been restored and has views over the North Yorkshire countryside has come to market with a guide price of more than £1m.

The Manor House, which has six bedrooms and is set in 2.27 acres, was once home to Richard Braithwaite, Court Poet to James I, and is situated in East Appleton, between Bedale and Catterick Garrison, in a conservation area.

John Coleman, head of country house sales at GSC Grays, said: “This a wonderful opportunity to own an historic house that has been beautifully restored with mature gardens and enjoys a superb and secluded rural setting.”

The house sits in an elevated position with southerly views over countryside and features an orangery/dining room extension which has underfloor heating and French doors opening onto the terrace area.

The accommodation, including four bathrooms, is arranged over two floors and is ideally suited to family life with three formal reception rooms, study, kitchen, breakfast room and more casual snug or family room.

The main gardens wrap around the house to the south and west and include an established orchard.

A stone terrace looks out over the southerly views and the grounds include a tennis court.

There are an extensive range of outbuildings, including two large cart sheds, stables, workshop and stores and subject to the appropriate planning consent, the agents say they could offer scope for development to provide annex or separate accommodation.

To the east of the house and with access over the neighbouring farmers track are grazing paddocks extending to about 5.73 acres which are being sold as Lot Two. They are made up of two grass parks, are fenced for livestock and have access to water.

The Manor House is currently on the market with GSC Grays Leyburn Branch with a guide price of Lot One £1,350,000. Lot Two £150,000.
