Inside stunning historic house that's been in the same family for 425 YEARS as it goes on sale in rare opportunity

A RARE opportunity has arisen to look inside a stunning manor house which has been in the same family for nearly 500 years.

Rawdon Hall has been put on the market for the first time in 425 years and boasts stunning rural views and a luxury family home.



The seven bedroom and three bathroom 17th century Grade II listed property is being sold outside of the Rawdon family for the very first time since it was built by George Rawdon in the late 1500s.

A Coach House is also included in the property, which is on sale for £1.25million in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

Described as a “rare gem” the extensive Elizabethan property boasts stone fireplaces, a priest hole and oak panelling.

It also has stained glass windows installed in the 1940s, and is even claimed that Charlotte Bronte visited in 1841 to write of her time at “Thornfield Hall.”

Estate agents Dacre, Son and Hartley described the property as an “excellent location” for a “commuter in West Yorkshire” which has “hand road and rail access.”

They added: “Despite the semi-rural location the property is within comfortable walking distance of Rawdon’s central amenities which include everyday shops, with more comprehensive shopping on offer within the surrounding towns and of course in central Leeds which, is just some 7 miles distant.

"The location provides an ideal base for the West Yorkshire commuter with rail services from nearby Apperley Bridge offering frequent connections throughout the day into both Leeds and Bradford as well as regular onward links from Leeds to London King's Cross.

"Leeds Bradford International Airport is just 3 miles distant."
