This delightful property dates from circa 1780 and features one of the finest Georgian staircases outside London, according to experts. Its distinguished history includes being the 1811 birthplace of Henry Boynton of the Boyton Baronetcy, who had the family seat at nearby Burton Agnes Hall. Now a beautifully restored and fully updated family house in extensive grounds, its substantial accommodation, with handsome Victorian addition, offers the option of a separate wing. Located on the edge of the village surrounded by its lovely gardens and land with pastures beyond, Nafferton Hall gives the impression of being a country house; however, it benefits from being a short stroll from a host of local village amenities including a very useful railway station.

The house offers an abundance of both character and period features, including the staircase, fireplaces, floorboards, wooden panelling and shutters, cornicing and ceiling roses, Victorian hall tiles, and salvaged Georgian ‘blue cheese’ marble thresholds. There is an array of beautiful windows, including arched windows in the library, sliding multi-paned sash windows and bays.
High specification fixtures and fittings are in evidence in the kitchen and all the bathrooms. Many of the radiators are from the Cast Iron Radiator Company and there are contemporary powder coated column radiators, extra wide floorboards, and House of Hackney wallpaper in the dining room. Farrow & Ball paint has been applied throughout.
A fine study/home office lies to one side of the house and there is superfast broadband to the property through fibre connectivity and 5G. The property has CCTV and sensor exterior lighting.
The kitchen breakfast room is an elegantly proportioned room with a bespoke, handmade kitchen that includes a gas fired Aga, separate electric hob, separate electric ovens and Butler sink. Alongside is the formal dining room with original floorboards and ornate fireplace, and west-facing bay window with panelled surround. The magnificent 31ft south and west facing drawing room enjoys views over the garden; it has parquet flooring, a pair of 12-pane windows with a window seat and Clearview multi-fuel stove as does the family room.
Numerous, beautifully decorated bedrooms abound. The principal bedroom has a cast iron fireplace, fitted dressing room and en suite bathroom with a freestanding bath from the Cast Iron Bath Co. On the well-insulated second floor the bedroom suite has vaulted ceilings and roof trusses, and the bathroom a freestanding bath.
Remote controlled gates open to a gravelled drive that passes through a stretch of mature trees including a venerable Horse Chestnut, all underplanted with spring bulbs. It sweeps round to the front and the rear of the house where there is ample space for parking in front of the garage, car port and former cartshed now a garage being used as a gym. The house has an extensive but relatively low maintenance garden divided into different sections with mature hedges and mellow brick walls. It includes a wooded copse, formal ‘rose’ garden with sundial and an L-shaped, fenced paddock beyond which lies open farmland; there is a raised south facing terrace of York stone along with a gazebo and summer house both of which overlook an expanse of lawn lined with well-established shrubs and trees, a cottage garden planted with lupins and delphiniums and a wildlife pond with ornamental bridge. The whole is fenced and bounded by well-established hedging with a garden gate giving access to the village via a snickleway.
