A substantial 18th Century Grade II* listed residence of significant scale and potential, offering a unique opportunity to complete the refurbishment and restoration, occupying a superb position overlooking beautiful elevated views of the local landscape.
Dougill Hall is a beautiful example of 18th century architecture, currently part-redeveloped and occupying a unique position close to the popular Yorkshire village of Summerbridge. The village and nearby town of Pateley Bridge offer an excellent array of everyday facilities, with the larger centres of Ripon and Harrogate offering substantial amenities a short distance away. An excellent location from which to explore the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the property lies on the fringes of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and offers superb opportunity to enjoy this incredible landscape from a unique perspective.
The property is currently found in a part-refurbished condition, with much of the initial first fix phase completed including significant plumbing, drainage and electrical works. Now in need of further investment to complete the refurbishment, the traditional hall is arranged over three substantial floors that still retain much of the original charm and character and extends to over 4900 sq ft of accommodation.
To the ground floor, a range of spacious reception areas including a sitting room, wood-panelled drawing room and dining room are complemented by a large breakfast kitchen and substantial utility room accessed from the secondary entrance hallway with adjoining cloakroom to the rear. To the first floor and second floors above, an array of seven large bedrooms are planned with initial works completed and with a further two house bathrooms and a wet room also prepared.
Externally, the property benefits from a single bedroom cottage annexe that comprises a bedroom, sitting room, kitchen and a bathroom, an excellent space for further guest accommodation. This is currently registered as a separate dwelling under business use named “The Old Cooling House” and is included as part of the sale. Further development potential also exists below, with a lower level of the building currently utilised as a tack room and store.
The property is approached down a shared private driveway with right of access leading to a substantial parking area to the side. Private formal gardens lie to the front, with the property bordered by a stream to the east and a small paddock to the south. To the west, a substantial traditional stable block leads on into paddock land of approximately 4 acres that is monitored using modern security and lighting systems. The Hall occupies a prominent elevated position and enjoys beautiful views across the neighbouring valley and landscape, in this unique and desirable location.
