One of the outstanding Georgian houses in the region, Aislaby Hall was built in 1742 in the Classical style. The stone quoins, symmetrical facade, enormous sash windows, plaster work and grand rooms that follow the Classical rules of design and proportion are all evidence of the influence of John Carr of York. Many of its finest internal architectural features have been retained.
Currently a residential dwelling in the ownership of a family, Aislaby Hall could certainly lend itself to a variety of commercial uses, such as a country house hotel or wedding venue.
Aislaby Hall, only previously sold three times since its construction in 1742, has over the last twenty years, undergone an extensive program of sympathetic restoration and renovation, returning this historic house to its glory days but much enhanced. However, as is often the case with large country houses, it offers further scope for investment and updating, enabling any incoming purchaser to enjoy putting their own stamp on it. Located in the hamlet of Aislaby, the house fronts the Pickering to Helmsley road with access via a long, private drive. Its rear elevation faces south over wonderful walled gardens and grounds with far-reaching, parkland views beyond.
In addition to the principal house and immediate grounds, there is an adjoining three bedroom cottage and stable block across a rear courtyard. The Georgian stables, part of which have been converted to extra bedrooms, offer an incoming purchaser development potential subject to gaining the necessary planning permissions.
From the A170 a drive some quarter mile long sweeps round to the rear of the property where the principal house overlooks its glorious, private gardens, sheltered from the village street by a high village wall. Avenues and gravel walkways wind decorously through the grounds framed by box hedging, low stone walls, spring and summer plantings and a variety of specimen shrubs and trees. The lawns are sheltered by towering mature trees and they stretch away to the south and east to a rural parkland landscape with uninterrupted pastoral views beyond.
Aislaby Hall lies within a pretty rural village between Pickering, Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley, conveniently located and close to rail connections at Malton and York (London 1hr 45mins). The spectacular scenery of the North York Moors and Dalby Forest stretches away to the north and the Yorkshire coast lies some twenty miles to the east.
