Fine detached family Grade II* Listed property within Heslington Village
Little Hall is a wonderful Grade II* listed, 18th century house with a fascinating history and is one of the oldest and most imposing buildings in the village.
The property is a fine example of Georgian architecture, offering a rare combination of character and lateral space, within a desirable location that has been the current owner's home for over 30 years. The house is mentioned in Pevsner's "Buildings of England" as an ambitious double-pile house of the early C18 built for a member of the Yarburgh family.
Extending to just under 5,000sqft, there is ample opportunity to adapt the accommodation to modern living with a superb combination of family and formal areas all centred around the magnificent cantilevered flying staircase.
To the first and second floors there are six bedrooms with three bathrooms, one of which is an en suite.
The house boasts a variety of original features; with folding window shutters, high ceilings, wood panelling, fireplaces and in particular the plasterwork in the hallway. A truly delightful home with the opportunity for an incoming purchaser to further enhance its beauty.
The garden, designed by the current owner, has been restored to its original pristine Georgian splendour, complete with perpendicular yew trees, box hedges and a box parterre, as well as an orchard. Externally there is a rear entertaining terrace as well as an outbuilding and double garage.
To the side of the property there is the potential to purchase further substantial outbuildings by separate negotiation. These could be converted to a home office, make au pair accommodation or provide a granny flat.
