IF YOU like the idea of wide open spaces, unending views and having the ability to roam free for almost as far as the eye can see, The Old Hall at Jervaulx might just fit the bill. Then, of course, there's the small matter of a beautiful period family home attached to all this outdoor space!

Built in around 1890, The Old Hall is a grand old dame which retains a wealth of original period features, combining well-proportioned rooms and high ceilings with mod cons and a contemporary sense of style.

This immaculately presented property offers more than 6,320sq.ft of family accommodation plus a further 3,340sq.ft of useful outbuildings. It has been lovingly maintained and restored by the current owners during the 12 years they've lived in it.

The property is entered via a stone porch into a welcoming reception hall with log burner which opens up into an elegant dual aspect drawing room with feature fireplace and log burning stove, French doors to the patio and underfloor heating. This extends through the entire ground floor.

Also on the ground floor are two cloakrooms, a further sitting room with log burning stove, a boot/gun room with fitted storage units, and a study/garden room with direct access to a delightful patio area with distant views.

The heart of the home is an open-plan kitchen/breakfast room with a large island with Silestone worktop, seating, an electric Aga and walk-in larder. This room has been carefully designed to suit modern living, with a comfortable sitting area that's home to a log burning stove. French doors open to the front of the property and steps lead to a stunning dining room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed wooden beams. There is also a utility room and further breakfast kitchen.

Upstairs are six bedrooms, including the extremely spacious master, which benefits from both an en-suite bathroom and an en-suite shower room. All of the other bedrooms enjoy luxurious en-suite facilities – two having bathrooms and the remaining three shower rooms.

Above the four-car garage is a fully self contained annexe. Currently used as a successful holiday let, it could easily be incorporated into the main house or used as separate accommodation for guests or a dependant relative. It comprises a large open-plan kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The Old Hall is approached via a private driveway, bordered with mature shrubs and stone walls, which leads to the garage and numerous outbuildings, including two workshops and a wine cellar.

A further driveway leads to a courtyard where there are five stables, a tack room, greenhouse and further useful outbuildings suitable for a variety of uses.

To the rear of the property are more formal gardens which enjoy private and far-reaching views over the River Ure and paddocks beyond. The Old Hall's gardens and grounds extend, in total, to just over 5.5 acres.

The Old Hall is situated at Jervaulx, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, close to the historic Jervaulx Abbey and just a short drive from Masham. It is on the market at a guide price of £2,1m.
