Firby Hall is an historic, listed Georgian property with 57 acres of land eight miles from Northallerton in Yorkshire. The property was built in 1778 by Thomas Coore, who, having raised a local fighting force, fought in the American War of Independence and on his return built this Grade II listed property.
The house is constructed of rendered stone under a stone slate roof and has a particularly unusual three storey canted bay on the south front, and has fine period feature inside including deep plaster cornicing and fine marble fireplaces, as well as beautifully proportioned reception rooms.
The Hall’s accommodation comprises entrance hall, sitting room, drawing room, dining room, cloakroom, kitchen, breakfast room, larder, laundry room, playroom, games room, domestic offices, cellars and a master bedroom with a dressing room and en-suite bathroom, as well as six further bedrooms, two house bathroom and three attic rooms.
The north wing of the house is a slightly later addition and boasts the conveniently placed kitchen, breakfast room and playroom. There is also a nursery flat which offers potential for self contained accommodation with two bedrooms.

The property also includes a separate cottage which has three double bedrooms, large kitchen, sitting room and dining room. There are also a set of outbuildings which form a courtyard and include a former barn. To the north west of the cottage are a range of more modern agricultural buildings which include some stables, store rooms and a yard.
Stocked with a number of fine deciduous and evergreen trees, as well as lawns with well stocked borders, the gardens provide excellent terraces for outdoor entertaining, and the wetland area which lies in the parkland to the south of the house attracts a wide variety of birdlife.
A field of approx 18 acres is currently let to a local farmer and the parkland which remains is ideal for livestock and equestrian activities. There is also an area of mixed woodland which includes some fine oak trees.
The estate sits in a tranquil and private location just one mile from the thriving market town of Bedale, and the A1 is just three miles away. Northallerton and Darlington both also provide direct train lines to London Kings Cross in two and a half hours.
The guide price is £2,250,000. For further information please contact Strutt and Parker on 01423 561274 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
