A significant detached house with medieval origins, set in beautiful gardens and incorporating numerous outbuildings and a 2.6 acre paddock.

Grey Walls is a substantial home of enormous character, built around a medieval oak cruck frame dating from the 14th century. The original building can still be traced in the brickwork, a few of the original York stone roof tiles retained by the owners. The house that stands today has been very much modified with strengthened limestone heightened walls and the first floor built on.

Although the property has undergone numerous changes in its history, more recently to include converting the original stables to a study and 5th en suite bedroom, it retains a wealth of period features and has lost none of its character. As well as numerous exposed ceiling beams, splendid fireplaces and wood panelling, the forehouse boasts a magnificent exposed cruck frame. The accommodation on offer is versatile and well-presented, with a number of reception rooms, five bedrooms and the opportunity to create further living space in a self-contained annex. This was the original stone-built garage which has been painstakingly re-built by the current owner.

From the quiet village roadside, the house is unassuming and reveals nothing of what lies beyond. The gardens are an absolute delight; beautifully landscaped with a myriad of inviting seating areas, they are very much befitting of such an impressive house. Largely laid to lawn and interspersed with planted beds and borders, they are largely bound by mature trees and hedging providing an enormous amount of privacy. Adjoining the garden is the paddock, separated by secure fencing and shrubbery. 2.6 acres in total, it can be accessed from a spacious parking area with a stable block, and also benefits from two barns and an additional access point for larger vehicles. There is further gated parking to the side of the house.

Allerston is a pretty village standing on the southern edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, conveniently positioned just off the A170 Thirsk to Scarborough road, approximately 12 miles inland and 6 miles east of the market town of Pickering. The nearby village of Thornton-le-Dale provides everyday amenities, with more extensive facilities found in Pickering and rail links at Malton, easily accessible via the A64.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.
