Scagglethorpe Manor, Main Street, Scagglethorpe, Malton, North Yorkshire, YO17 8DT
Largely a 17th century property, Scagglethorpe Manor was extended in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, culminating in the completion of a music room in 1823. These extensions and improvements – including the excavation of the cellar and domestic rooms at the rear – were made at a time of prosperity for the village when the local breeding of Cleveland Bay horses almost certainly was a source of wealth for the owners. Scagglethorpe Manor has a profound charm and a depth of character that sets it apart from comparable properties, too many of which have suffered from insensitive remodelling. It is in need of some updating but would undoubtedly make an exceptional home. Please note that the photographs are dated 2010.

The property sits behind a small front garden lined with box hedging, mahonia, hellebores and cotoneaster. Timber gates open to a grassy gravelled drive and parking area in front of the detached barn, where tall scots pines and beech trees stand sentinel. This charming barn, with upper storey, provides garaging for several vehicles, a large workshop, haystore and further storage area. The grounds are indeed generally well timbered, with a fine horse chestnut, three more magnificent beech trees and a further stand of Scots pines in the north east. There is a large orchard with mature fruit trees, a dense shrubbery behind the house with a variegated holly, brick built summer house with larches and an ornamental cherry nearby and a small duck pond. To the east there are two fenced paddocks each with a field shelter, and a vegetable garden with raised beds.

Standing midway between York and Scarborough, the village of Scagglethorpe lies just east of Malton, on the marches of the great Estates of Birdsall and Settrington, and almost at the junction of the Yorkshire Wolds and the Howardian Hills, with Ryedale stretching away to the north. The surrounding countryside is rural and undulating and access is easy to the market town of Malton where there is an excellent range of local facilities as well as a rail connection to York. In the village itself there is a much-loved, traditional pub, a village hall and playing fields.
