Rudby Hall is an exceptional Grade II* Listed country house which was built by Anthony Salvin for the 10th Viscount Falkland. Completed in 1838, the property was then further restored in the 1980’s. Constructed in Ashlar sandstone under graduated Lakeland slate, this classically styled country house is beautifully proportioned with many architectural attributes including Rocco plasterwork, fine fireplaces and polished oak doors to the principal reception rooms. Rudby Hall is now carefully divided into a manageable family home, which has been carefully restored by the current owners, during their sixteen year tenure.
A long gravel driveway leads to the main house through the parkland grounds to a parking area to the front. Entering through a tree-bay entrance vestibule, which is finished with Tuscan columns, the hall opens to a large tiled reception hall, finished with decorative wall tiles and an original open fire place. This stunning entrance hall is the core of the home, from which all main reception rooms gracefully lead.
The splendid dining room is to the right with a carved oak book case, thought to date back to King William lV, and is complemented by the intricate cornicing and deep set sash windows overlooking the lawn. The drawing room to the left also has beautiful painted cornicing and painted wall features, along with an open fireplace with original tiles. Most of the windows benefit from original shutters and stunning oak floors.
Leading through a secret panelled door is the sitting room with a large limestone open fireplace, delicate ceiling decoration and a bespokely made bookshelf. This room overlooks the side lawn and terrace beyond.
The inner hall leads to a study, cloakroom, butlers pantry and into the magnificent open plan kitchen/breakfast room. Carefully designed by a keen cook, this large kitchen offers ample space for preparation and serving, along with a large white oil-fired AGA and a secondary electric cooker with induction hob.
The kitchen has been bespokely designed and crafted around a central island with a butlers Belfast sink and a welsh dresser unit. There is ample space for a large breakfast table and offers access onto the side terrace for al fresco dining. There is a good range of domestic rooms including a utility room, laundry room, cloakroom and a rear door into the courtyard which provides useful space within the confines.
An outstanding cantilevered staircase rises to two floor landings leading access to twelve spacious double en-suite bedrooms, six on each floor. One additional en-suite bedroom can be found in the tower, accessed via a separate staircase and leading to a roof terrace. Each of the thirteen bedroom has a unique story and period charm which depicts the wonderful history of this magnificent house, simultaneously offering modern luxurious amenities. They are generously proportioned with carefully restored period features and modern luxurious bathrooms. One of the main master suite has a balcony offering incredible commanding southern views across the surrounding Yorkshire countryside, the river, the valley and rolling hills of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.
On the third floor within the tower there is a further double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom/shower room and access to the roof terrace.
From Hutton Rudby take the signs to Stokesley. Continue into the dip and up the other side for approximately one mile and the main gates to Rudby Hall will be found on the right hand side.
