A freehold building with full planning granted for the further development/renovation of the Servants Quarters in the East Wing of the Old Hall. The main part of the Old Hall has already been sympathetically renovated to a high standard and is currently used as a superb period family home. The further development is for an additional four bedroom property with modern open plan kitchen dining room with utility and a generous open family living area with spiral staircase to the first floor. Off the landing there are to be four double bedrooms with master bedroom having en suite and walk-in wardrobe. Planning application reference number 96/99/00907/G. The decision was issued and approved June 1992 as part of the original application with reference 90/99/00907/B.

North Elmsall Hall is a part Grade II listed and most impressive and picturesque stone built country house dating in part back to the 12th century although substantially renovated over recent years. The house has many distinguishing architectural details and includes a medieval fireplace in the Great Hall, original beams rescued from the West Wing of the hall before its demolition and "rain sill" in the external stone work. Originally featuring in the Domesday book, this stunning part grade II listed property formed part of the De Lacy Estate and the hall still retains some fascinating period detail with wine cellar having arched Norman brick roof, gate post with Horse and carriage stones, original Oak truss beams and pegs dating back circa 700 years.

The fantastic home is spaciously split over two levels and over the years the hall has been stylishly and sympathetically renovated to make an ideal family home, with further development potential to extend into the additional servant's quarters of the hall. The accommodation briefly comprises; open plan kitchen/dining room, separate utility, fantastic hallway with feature fireplace and original oak staircase with stunning vaulted glass ceiling and views over the lawns at the rear, dining area with access down to the cellar, Great Hall (large living room) with tall features windows and medieval fireplace, downstairs bedroom/study and w.c. to complete the ground floor. The first floor landing also has a feature fireplace, vaulted glass ceiling and views over the gardens. The master bedroom boasts a walk-in wardrobe, en suite shower room and Juliet balcony overlooking the old hall, again full of character including exposed timbers and beams. The two further bedrooms are of generous sizes and are served by the main house bathroom. The additional wing of the hall has previous been granted planning permission to convert into an additional residential dwelling (plans and architectural impression available) or for further accommodation to the main house. Externally, there is a private garden to the front of the property, primarily laid to lawn with patio seating area, orchard with mature fruit trees, fenced paddock and ample parking for several vehicles. Further established gardens to the side and rear.

Rural countryside is not far away but having said that, it is also convenient for access to Barnsley, Doncaster, Pontefract, Wakefield and other surrounding business centres, together with a range of amenities including local shops, schools, public transport and the motorway network those wishing to commute further afield.

An internal inspection comes highly recommended to appreciate the size and potential that this development offers.
