    About this property

    • Embsay House is a grand, detached villa built in 1867, constructed from honey-coloured stone under a tiled roof. The property has many lovely original features, including original fireplaces, picture rails and moulding details, wood floors and Lincrusta wall coverings within the entrance hall, leading up through the floors. The vendors have made a number of improvements since 2021, including full internal redecoration, a new kitchen and flooring, and a paved terrace on the west side of the house, perfect for alfresco dining. The detached outbuilding offers a wealth of storage space, stabling and garaging, with the possibility of conversion to a four bedroom house as planning permission has been granted and there are beautiful grounds of about 7.22 acres.

      The superbly spacious accommodation ranges over four floors, beginning with cellars on the basement level for storage. The layout of the house is perfectly configured for entertaining with many generously sized reception rooms. The dining and drawing rooms are at the front of the house, overlooking the gardens, while the rest of the living spaces are located separately, keeping the formal and informal areas easily divided. The sitting room, kitchen and breakfast room all link together to provide one big, warm, family space, and there's a study for home working and plenty of storage like a pantry and a utility room for laundry machines. Each of the five bedrooms can accommodate a double bed, with the principal bedroom particularly spacious and further benefitting from a dressing room and en suite bathroom with a fabulous freestanding bath.

      The house is set within about 7.22 acres of grounds, including beautifully landscaped gardens, paddocks and woodland. A sweeping gated gravel driveway leads up through a tree-lined entrance to an expansive parking area and a long, detached outbuilding, which comprises garages, workshops, stabling and a tack room, stores and a games room with planning permission for conversion to a separate residential dwelling. There is a large terrace for entertaining outside which is accessed from both the drawing room and breakfast room. The property has previously been used for equestrian use.
