Beal House is a Grade II listed manor house near the village of Thornton-le-Street, between Northallerton and Thirsk. The house dates back to the 18th century and was originally built as the dower house for the Gautby Estate. It was recently sold by Croft Residential (York) for around £2million.

The primary sale of the contents of the Beal House was held in 2020 by Edinburgh-based auctioneers Lyon&Turnbull and grossed £900,000.

Auctioneer Jeremy Wood, said: “it’s a classic country house sale with an eclectic mix of antiques and furniture. Although some of the contents of Beal House had already been removed there are still a huge number of items to sell. We are expecting a lot of interest in the sale from private buyers as well as from the trade.”

The sale is catalogued in a room-by-room sequence.

Ryedale Auctioneers’ last country house sale took place in November 2021 and included the collection of the late David Hall, a Thirsk-based antiques dealer. The auction achieved a 99% sale rate and was Ryedale Auctioneers’ second largest grossing sale to date.

The Kirkbymoorside salerooms are open for public viewing Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th January, 10am-4pm.
