St James House Bilbrough Manor stands on the rising ground south-west of York, dating from 1901 when it was rebuilt on the site of a decaying Elizabethan mansion. Its earlier history is inextricably linked with the Fairfax family, of whom the most famous was the third Lord Thomas Fairfax who commanded the Parliamentarian new model army when it defeated Charles I, but later opposed Cromwell and was instrumental in the restoration of Charles II.

In its more recent incarnation, Bilbrough Manor has been an exceptional family home as well as a country house hotel but due to its unwieldy size for one family the decision was made to split the manor into three independent houses each with its own access road, gardens, garages and services.

St James House offers very well-appointed and deceptively spacious accommodation boasting fabulous natural light levels, a large living kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga and adjoining dining room leading to an impressive drawing room with grand ceilings and open fire. The study/family room offers a second reception room with a wood burning stove and of particular note is the big conservatory which provides a link across the back of the house joining the hall, dining room and study giving the house a focus for entertaining. The showpiece of the first floor is, without doubt, the master suite benefitting from a large bedroom and an ensuite. There are a further three bedrooms, one ensuite and a family bathroom. Rear stairs lead to the second-floor bedroom and dressing room/6th bedroom.

Approached via a private sweeping drive, the property enjoys generous west facing gardens to the front and side with two double garages to one side and ample parking for several cars. To the rear is a kitchen garden leading to a secluded sun terrace.

Bilbrough lies 6 miles south-west of York surrounded by rolling agricultural land. Home to The Three Hares public house, a parish church and village hall. The village offers easy access to the A64 and A1, providing excellent transport links to the rest of Yorkshire and beyond. The City of York benefits from a railway station; with trains to London's King's Cross in 1 hour 50 minutes and the city also offers excellent schooling including St Peters School, Bootham and The Mount to name just a few.

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.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
