Demesne Hall is a beautiful and grand hall set within wonderful private grounds, as well as boasting expansive annexe accommodation

We take a peek inside.

Nestled in the charming Dales market town of Wolsingham, Demesne Hall is a magnificent period property with a wealth of historical interest. Resting in extensive landscaped gardens and grounds the property is peaceful and private yet still conveniently accessible. This grand hall has been extended and developed over the years and today includes a beautiful and substantial annexe offering hugely flexible accommodation. Expect original character, versatile accommodation and beautiful countryside surroundings.

Dating back to 1848, the elegant construction of hammer-dressed sandstone ashlar beneath a Welsh slate roof remains as beautiful today as ever. A host of character features have been retained, within the property featuring soaring high ceilings, decorative coving and cornicing, and striking fireplaces that all reflect the history of Demesne Hall.

The main house has a wide and welcoming central hall flowing to the principal accommodation. The drawing, sitting and dining rooms offer a versatile mix of entertaining and relaxing areas, each with wonderful bay windows that illuminate the vast open spaces. In addition, the garden room is a delightful room to spend time with guests and family, or simply to take in the gardens.

In the kitchen, you’ll find a huge range of fitted cabinetry with an abundance of storage and work space, while the adjoining breakfast room has plenty of space for casual dining. The ground floor also has a study and an office, providing the opportunity to keep home life and work entirely separate.

Rising up a grand staircase to the first floor, you’ll find seven bedrooms with varying outlooks. The principal bedroom has a fantastic dual aspect and is served by a well-appointed en-suite bathroom. Four further bedrooms also have en-suite facilities, whilst the remaining two bedrooms are served by the elegant family bathroom. A freestanding bath sits centrally, with a separate shower, wash hand basin, WC and heated towel rail all surrounded by tasteful tiling.

All arranged across a single floor, the annexe accommodation offers excellent accessible living. The annexe can be fully closed off from the main house as it includes private entrances, but currently internal doors allow flexible use in tandem with the original hall.

The impressive and spacious accommodation within the annexe includes an expansive sitting room, dining room and the kitchen/breakfast room. A utility room offers further practical storage and work space, and is cleverly positioned to serve both the annexe and main house as needed. There are four bedrooms, including the principal with en-suite shower room, and a bathroom serves the remaining three bedrooms.

Extending in all to around 1.62 acres, the gardens and grounds surrounding the property are the perfect match for the grand hall. The pillared and gated entrance offers a suitably striking arrival, with the driveway curving gently to the property. There are four garages within the block and parking for any number of vehicles when hosting visitors.

Manicured lawns stretch to the south and west sides of the grounds, with gravelled pathways throughout. A pretty terraced area of the garden sits under sheltering trees, whilst a greenhouse and shed will appeal to the keen horticulturalist. Behind the annexe is a courtyard and raised sun terrace, offering plenty of space for al fresco dining, entertaining and playing.
