Helperby Manor is an imposing yet entirely manageable country house set within its own generous gardens and grounds. A much loved family home for forty years it is now in need of modernisation and improvement. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to effect the transformation of a significant country residence.
• Family period house in a parkland setting
• A substantial property - more than 5500 sq ft of internal accommodation arranged over three floors
• Privately situated up a long private track with a carriage drive
• Well-proportioned and elegant accommodation
• Principal reception rooms face south and open on to the gardens and grounds
• Superb edge of village location
The outside space is a major selling point of the property; set in the heart of its nine acres, it has parkland to the front and paddocks to the rear. The coach house is accessed across a small inner courtyard, beyond which lies an orchard. The gardens and grounds spread out from here on three sides. The parkland descends gently from the house and features magnificent trees including beech, birch and pine, with several specimen species, and a large wildlife pond. The property itself is situated at the edge of Helperby, an estate village, and is approached up a long avenue of lime trees lined with snowdrops.
