This is an exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial detached barn conversion within a large plot of three acres as well as an adjacent significant outbuilding. The principal house was formerly a dairy and granary within the Tatton Sykes of Sledmere Estate and is believed to date in part from the seventeenth century, with the eastern section dating from 1885. The whole would make an outstanding country house in sought after Ryedale countryside or the site could be developed further subject to planning consent.

The principal property was converted in two stages during the 1990s with an extension housing the kitchen being added more recently. Much of the property now requires a comprehensive programme of renovation, although it should be noted that the eastern section is currently occupied. Part of the house features a number of imposing double oak doors with ironmongery, huge exposed beams and a particularly fine, bespoke staircase.
The principal house sits in the midst of its three acres set well back from the quiet village road behind a laurel hedge and garden. A generous drive sweeps in front of the house and also to the rear through wrought iron gates that open to the courtyard garden. The bulk of the land lies predominantly behind and to the east of the house, a significant proportion being hardstanding where redundant agricultural buildings formerly stood. One outbuilding remains, a large 1950s barn (227 M2/ 2243 sq ft) which was updated twelve years ago and now includes a pantile roof. On the eastern boundary are fields and paddocks, one of which was formerly a horse arena. We have been advised that the front paddock has lapsed planning for a tennis court and a detached garage with room above. The courtyard has a Haddonstone fountain; it faces south and would make an ideal sheltered and private garden. Beyond lies the rolling open countryside of the Wolds. The view is protected and includes a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
