An outstanding Georgian country house lying within private parkland in a prime location.
The Bilton Hall Estate lies in a very private and well screened position yet centrally placed between York, Harrogate and Leeds therefore offering excellent accessibility to the major communication networks.
Bilton Hall is a privately situated small residential Estate centred around an outstanding Grade II Listed Georgian country house together with secondary accommodation, productive parkland, amenity lake and impressive walled garden; extending in all to about 93 acres including the Bilton-in-Ainsty cricket ground.
It is believed that there has been a house on the site of Bilton Hall since 1479. The current house was built in the early to mid 18th century but was significantly remodelled and enlarged around 1865. The current owners have extended and improved the main house, added the garage and Lodge House and created a modern family home. The accommodation in the main house extends to approximately 10,870 sq ft with well proportionedrooms and accommodation on ground and first floor. The principal rooms lie within the original house including a number of fine fireplaces, attractive cornicing, reception hall leading to the beautiful staircase hall, drawing room, dining room, study and family kitchen.
Garden and Grounds
Approached through electronically operated security gates, a sweeping carriage driveway creates a wonderful approach flanked by parkland, amenity trees, ponds and the lake. Sweeping lawns lead from the house to the lakeside. A particular feature is the magnificent walled garden with topiary hedging. The farmland is let on short term agreements to local farmers and for those with sporting interests, the property includes the Bilton cricket ground. Within the grounds there is a former ice house and Listed game larder.
