Doncaster’s Burghwallis Hall goes on the market

Marketing / 22 Jul, 16

We have been instructed as sales agent for Burghwallis Hall, a Grade II Star listed former home for the elderly.

Our Leeds office has been instructed to sell the property on behalf of the Diocese of Hallam, with our specialists now seeking potential buyers for the impressive site in the Doncaster area.

Commenting on the appointment, Tom Garrud from the Diocese of Hallam, said: “Burghwallis Hall is a fantastic property with a great history and it’s also in a fantastic location. The building has been a great servant to the Diocese and a wonderful home to the family that lived there for many hundreds of years before that. It is now time to enlist others with the opportunity and responsibility for the next stage of the property’s use. We’re delighted that Sanderson Weatherall has been appointed to act on our behalf to find an appropriate party that will have the privilege to continue the work of preserving and enhancing this amazing building, at the heart of the village.

We are inviting offers for the freehold interest in the imposing Grade II Star listed building, situated south of Grange Lane, in the village of Burghwallis, a place whose history can be traced to the Domesday Book. Burghwallis Hall is situated in a tranquil rural setting with easy access to the A1.

Andrew Ellis, partner in our Leeds office said: “Burghwallis Hall offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a well-known historic building with centuries of heritage. The property was until recently a 28-bedroom residential care home, but with the correct planning permissions it could easily again become a fantastic family home.”

The informal planning brief identifies the potential removal of later additions to the main building, which could allow the sympathetic refurbishment of the original parts of the hall, and conversion back to residential use. It is also anticipated that, subject to the necessary approvals, consent may be obtained to develop two areas in particular within the grounds, extending to approximately 0.72 and 0.29 hectares respectively, which could accommodate six detached residential properties.
