Property Description

A Grade II Listed Town House in the West End of Middleham with spacious & versatile accommodation requiring general refurbishment throughout. Currently arranged as three separate dwellings, Hill House (2/3 bedrooms), West Hill House (3 bedrooms) & The Gallery (1 bedroom). The property could easily be converted back to a large family home with 6 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms.

Leyburn 2 miles, Masham 9 miles, Bedale 10.5 miles, Richmond 16.5 miles, Harrogate 30 miles and Leeds 55 miles (all distances are approximate).

Middleham is famous for its Castle and many renowned racehorse training yards. In addition to being known as the Newmarket of the north, Middleham is an attractive small and unspoilt market town with good communications and facilities. The market town of Leyburn is 2 miles north and has developed as the traditional centre for mid-Wensleydale and is often referred to as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. The town supports an array of shops, restaurants, schools, pubs, churches, sports facilities and an auction house. In terms of wide transport links, the A1 mortorway is accessible at Catterick (14 miles), Bedale (11 miles) and Scotch Corner (18 miles). Trains on the East Coast main line stop at both Northallerton (35 mins) and Darlington (45 mins). The closest international airports are at Newcastle (1.25 hours) and Leeds Bradford (1.25 hours).


From Leyburn Market Place head east on the A684 towards Bedale. At the petrol station turn right on to Middleham Rd (A6108) and follow this road into Middleham (2 miles). At the Market Place turn right on to Coverham Lane and towards the West End of Middleham and Hill House is on the right hand side.


Dating from the mid 18th Century, Hill House is a particularly attractive town house benefitting from extensive and versatile accommodation but requiring general refurbishment throughout. The property faces south looking towards Castle Hill and is situated in the quieter end of the town. Currently arranged as two three bedroom dwellings known as Hill House and West Hill House, the property would lend itself easily to conversion back to a large family home of six bedrooms and three bathrooms. The converted stable block known as the Gallery also provides a useful one bedroom dwelling to the rear.

In 2020, Racing Welfare obtained full planning and listed building consent for alterations and extensions in association with the creation of a centre for people of the horse racing industry including accommodation, gym, treatment/therapy suite and social spaces. It is understood that a number of the planning conditions were discharged but the works did not commence.

Most recently, the property has been a successful investment property and each dwelling has been let on an Assured Shorthold tenancy agreement with its own curtilage.
