The sale of Wilstrop Hall offers an exceptional opportunity to buy a manageable sized residential, farming and amenity estate in a private yet accessible location between York and the A1.
There is an attractive 7 bedroom period farmhouse, a detached 5 bedroom cottage, a range of traditional and modern farm buildings and about 132 acres of farmland within a ring fence.
The property offers flexibility to suit a number of purchasers requirements including those with an interest in agriculture, equestrian or conservation.
Wilstrop Hall is an attractive period farmhouse with established walled gardens. The principal house has three good sized reception rooms with a breakfast kitchen and orangery. The seven bedrooms are situated across the first and second floors.
Wilstrop Cottage was originally two cottages and has been reconfigured to provide a five bedroom house with garaging. Situated to the west of Wilstrop Hall in private grounds it is ideal for occupation by family or to generate income. The property is currently let on an AST and could be available with vacant possession following service of notice.
To the east of the house lies a range of traditional and modern farm buildings well suited for general storage, livestock or equestrian use. Planning permission was received in October 2001 to convert the large brick barn into a dwelling. The building has had a new floor and been reroofed and it is believed the permission is still live. (Purchasers to satisfy themselves).
The farmland extends to about 132 acres of grassland including mowing, grazing and amenity and land is well suited to livestock or equestrian use. The land has been extensively farmed under stewardship for the last 15 years with income generated from the Basic Payment Scheme enhanced by the ELS/HLS Conservation Scheme.
The northern and western boundaries follow the River Nidd and offer about 1.49 miles of single bank fishing. The fishing has previously been exercised by an anglers club who described it as a feature packed stretch containing barbel, chub, dace and roach with occasional brown trout and grayling.
Permission was granted on in October 2001 to permit conversion of a traditional building to 1 dwelling with a new package treatment plant which was installed. The application reference is 6.114.2.A.FUL.
An 8 kW roof mounted solar PV array was installed and commissioned in 2014. This provides electricity to the farm with surplus sold to the grid.
