Country home with lots of potential
ANYONE wanting to take on a country house project should take a look at Marske Hall, near Richmond.
On the market at £2.5m, it was last sold in 1951 in a semi-derelict condition purely for its valuable stonework.
The businessman who bought it saved it from demolition by converting it into flats.
It still retains a host of period features including carved balusters and fine Italianate plasterwork together with impressive fireplaces and walnut panelled rooms.
Nick Talbot, of Carter Jonas in Harrogate, says: “It will appeal to a purchaser looking to restore it to its former glory”.
