5 bedroom house
A stunning 5 bedroom period property in glorious grounds of almost 5 acres together with a further 4.5 acres by separate negotiation.
Built in 1999 on the site of the original eighteenth century Camerton Hall using reclaimed materials the architecture of the new Camerton Hall is enduringly sympathetic to what came before.

It overlooks its own gardens, grounds and lake, has an extensive range of outbuildings and land, with the option of buying an additional four acres by separate negotiation.

This is a stylish, high specification and practical house decorated in Farrow & Ball and with ample storage options ideal for a large family. Much of the ground floor has been fitted with Indian sandstone flags and the bespoke handmade kitchen and utility areas were designed and constructed by Grove House Interiors at Thirsk. The kitchen has integrated appliances, an island unit with a breakfast bar, a gas fired 4-oven Aga, double Belfast sink and Welsh dresser. The utility room has also been fitted by Grove House Interiors, has a single Belfast sink and door to the kitchen walled garden. The elegantly proportioned sitting room features an Inglenook fireplace and is double aspect with a pair of French doors opening south on to the garden terrace. At the southern end of the house, the garden room faces the gardens on three sides and is used for all year enjoyment. Part of the extensive range of outbuildings, the custom-made party room with its own log burner opens onto the courtyard and is designed with entertaining in mind, both inside and outside where there is ample space for barbecues and al fresco dining.
On the first floor the landing and principal bedroom are double height and vaulted, each bedroom with a glorious outlook. Two of the bathrooms have underfloor heating.
The range of outbuildings with traditional clock tower were built in 2005 closely following an early nineteenth century model. Their traditional exterior belies their modern construction, finish and function. These buildings provide further garaging, both open and secure, ample storage, a gardener’s loo and stabling for two horses as well as a superb entertainment space with a bar/kitchen and French doors opening on to the courtyard.
Camerton Hall is served by two private drives, a main drive accessed through electric wrought iron gates and a secondary rear drive that leads to the outbuildings. The glorious walled garden has a 300-year old listed wall and links the main house to the outbuildings; it has a productive vegetable garden with raised beds and a wall with espalier trees of apple and plum. The gardens and grounds largely lie to the front of the house; here are mixed herbaceous borders, sweeping lawns, ornamental trees, flagged terraces and a wildlife lake. The lake is extensive and supports a rich flora with a bridge crossing to an island. Beyond lies an apple and cherry orchard, a mixed wildflower meadow with borage designed to attract bees and butterflies and an area of parkland with two coppices comprising some 300 trees. The whole is bounded by a fully dog-proofed post and rail fence with a well-established mixed wildlife hedge with willow and alder screen on the southern boundary.
