A high-end home built on the site of a historic old hall on the edge of the desirable village of Heath, is being marketed for sale for the first time in over 20 years, with a guide price of £995,000.
Old Hall Gardens is an impressive property that sits within an outstanding plot of 2.5 acres and enjoys spectacular views. The family home adjoins the ruins of The Old Hall – one of the finest Elizabethan houses in Yorkshire, which was built in 1568 by John Kaye.
Director, Nicola Thompson, from Adair Paxton, the Leeds estate agent marketing the property, said: “Old Hall Gardens enjoys such an enviable location on the fringes of Heath, which is know as the ‘village of Manor Houses’, and Old Hall Gardens is certainly not out of place here!
“A home of this scale, with four grand reception rooms, one of which has a stunning octagon shape that provides panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, provides buyers with a unique opportunity. The old and the new blend seamlessly and Old Hall Gardens has a high-end specification throughout. From the grand entrance hall to the light-filled living room, to the panelled study, snug and octagon shaped dining room – every room is immaculate. The spacious kitchen diner has a large island and Aga, and there is a useful utility room.”
On the first floor there is a master bedroom, open plan dressing room, en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms, one of which is en-suite and a house shower room. “In addition to the house, one of the outstanding features of Old Hall Gardens are the grounds,” explained Nicola. “Approached by a long private driveway, which leads to a large, paved forecourt, the front and rear gardens are impressive in both proportion and design.
“Right next to the house is a large, paved patio leading to expansive lawns beyond and planted borders around the ruins of the original old hall. With ancient steps, that are thought to have formed the original approach to The Old Hall, leading down to an extensive lawned garden beyond, the grounds are spectacular. The garden enjoys gravelled pathways, trees, shrubs and planted beds and also includes a greenhouse and gardeners’ WC. The gardens adjoin established woodland and there is a detached open barn with a garage, as well as a large, detached outbuilding ideal for playroom, office or gym use.”
With parking for a number of vehicles and a double garage, Old Hall Gardens also has a second driveway, which leads to the rear of the property.
Nicola added: “Heath is a hidden gem on the outskirts of Wakefield, and the very private Old Hall Gardens, is surrounded by attractive countryside and woodland yet easily accessible for anyone commuting to Wakefield, Leeds and beyond. The village also benefits from a cosy village pub – The Kings Arms, and we are expecting plenty of interest in this outstanding home.”
