***IMPRESSIVE DETACHED RESIDENCE OCCUPYING A 2.5 ACRE PLOT AND ENJOYING SPECTACULAR VIEWS*** Situated in an enviable position on the plot previously occupied by The Old Hall, this delightful family home adjoins the ruins which remain. The hall was built in 1568 by John Kaye and was one of the finest Elizabethan houses in Yorkshire. The property is approached by a long private driveway and is on the fringe of the remarkable village of Heath - known as "The Village of Manor Houses". The house itself boasts FOUR RECEPTION ROOMS, including the most impressive octagon shaped dining room with panoramic views, a kitchen/diner, utility room and WC to the ground floor. To the first floor there is an impressive master suite with dressing room and en-suite, a second bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a generous house shower room. Externally, the grounds can only be described as spectacular. The long driveway leads to a parking forecourt for a number of vehicles and a double garage. A second driveway leads around to the rear of the property where the superb gardens also house a garage/barn and an additional outbuilding, currently used as a gym/playroom, but would make an exceptional home office. Enjoying views over open countryside and woodlands the grounds are truly private and boast the remaining ruins of The Old Hall. The residence itself has been extremely well maintained by the current vendors and early internal inspection is highly recommended.

Agents Note The current vendors have obtained planning permission to extend the property at first floor level over the double garage. Various other aspects of the same planning consent have already been discharged and therefore we understand the consent remains in perpetuity. Plans can be made available to potential purchasers upon request, but purchasers are (as always) recommended to rely on their own enquiries for this and any amendments (if required).
