Well screened from the public highway, Stamford Bridge Hall is approached through electric gates along a private gravelled drive, with plentiful parking. There are lovely gardens and grounds of about six acres which surround the property and give a real sense of rural living. In addition to the impressive hall itself, the property has a number of significant outbuildings which provide further potential and are suitable for a multitude of purposes. The property adjoins open countryside to the western edge of the village and is unusually well placed for access to York, the A64 and west Yorkshire and is within walking distance of the extensive amenities of Stamford Bridge. Leeds Bradford airport is highly commutable and travel to London Kings Cross is just under 1 hour 50 minutes from York railway station.
The House The property has benefitted from a meticulous program of works which have retained the integrity of the original hall, whilst sympathetically providing modern comforts. The versatile accommodation which extends to almost 6,500 square feet is arranged over three floors and features a graceful staircase hall and stunning panelled drawing room. There is a modern well equipped kitchen with a 4 oven Aga, two generous formal reception rooms and a comfortable family room, all with doors to the garden. Practical as well as attractive, there is a large laundry room which links to an adjoining wing which is currently used as an amenity area with a games room, 2nd kitchen and shower room. This area could easily be used as ancillary accommodation if required, and would be ideal for an elderly/independent relative or nanny etc. To the upper floors are seven bedrooms, six with stylish ensuite facilities, together with a playroom, a study and further box room. Whilst the living accommodation is undoubtedly large, the property remains very much a home and features a profusion of large Georgian pane style sash windows throughout.
Outbuildings Adjoining the hall is a good sized barn with traditional stables incorporating the original stalls; it provides a useful amount of space on two floors, together with a single storey store to the side. Crossing the courtyard there is a single storey building, providing extensive storage. In addition to the two existing outbuildings, the current owner has built two significant two storey buildings which currently provide extensive garaging, together with leisure/ office facilities. The outbuildings have been constructed to the highest standard and offer enormous potential as ancillary accommodation/ holiday cottages etc, subject to the necessary consents being granted.
Outside The grounds extend to about six acres and provide a setting of quality to match the house. To the south east lie the formal gardens with a wide swathe of lawn interspersed with herbaceous borders, shrubs and trees, sheltered by high hedges, walls and fences. There is a large fish pond which is believed to be a relic from the medieval moat overhung with Rhododendrons and overlooked by a series of York stone paths and terraces. The paddocks to the rear of the house provide a rural outlook, are fully fenced and surrounded by mature trees.
Agent's Note The land is subject to an overage clause. Details of which can be provided upon request.
The next steps...
How will you fund the purchase?
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.
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.
