Manor House In Stanhope
Grade II* listed, Stanhope Old Hall, is a medieval manor house steeped in history. The original part of the house dates back to c. 1139, with some remodelling and additions taking place in the Elizabethan /Jacobean periods.

The first resident of dwelling on the site was William De Monte in the mid 12th Century. It was also the ancient family house of the Fetherstonhaugh’s and was a hunting lodge for the Bishops of Durham.

The property is set in large, principally walled, gardens with ample parking and benefits from good road and rail links nearby. It has recently been sympathetically upgraded to create a charming family home which is comfortable and practical. The accommodation is set over four floors and is full of character with mullioned windows, flagstone floors, heavily beamed ceilings and impressive inglenook fireplaces.

There's a large entrance hall, study, games room, boiler room, utility room, dining kitchen, a dining room, sitting room, drawing room, living room, laundry room, second kitchen, as well as ten bedrooms (seven en suite). It was operated in the past as a hotel and has potential for commercial use subject to consents.

This is a thoroughly unique property in a fantastic location, which has had much love devoted on it by its owners and could be the ideal home for an extended family.
