Historic Grimston Manor: A Baron’s Former Residence Hits the Market for the First Time in 40 Years

Grimston Manor, a remarkable historic mansion once belonging to a baron, is now available for sale for the first time in four decades.

This captivating ‘Italianate palace,’ famously known as Grimston Manor, served as the former residence of the second Baron Howden, who was not only an esteemed Member of Parliament for Dundalk but also a distinguished commander in the British Army.

Dating back to the early 1600s, Baron Howden undertook a transformation of the estate in 1839, reshaping it to match his own preferences.

Encompassing over 5,500 square feet, this six-bedroom abode boasts an array of remarkable features, including a library, a concealed doorway, a vaulted wine cellar, and a majestic grand staircase.

With its opulent marble flooring, grand chandeliers, and exquisite ornate fireplaces, Grimston Manor exudes the epitome of luxury and timeless elegance.

Approaching the property via a lengthy private drive, you’ll discover that it occupies more than half an acre of land, offering breathtaking vistas of the surrounding grounds and the picturesque countryside.

Tim Waring, Prime Residential at GSC Grays, commented, “This beautifully maintained home is now on the market for the first time in over four decades, presenting a truly unique and exceptional buying opportunity.”

Nestled within serene parkland, the property has retained many of its original features, including a magnificent staircase, while the library has been transformed into an expansive 55-foot-long open-plan living space.

The property’s location offers the best of both worlds – a tranquil country retreat that remains conveniently proximate to essential local amenities and transportation options.

Situated just two miles south of Tadcaster, Grimston Manor enjoys excellent access to the A64 and A1(M), as well as easy connectivity to several airports.
