PART EXCHANGE CONSIDERED. A magnificent Grade II listed Coach House conversion set behind the historic Brantingham Thorpe. With over 5.5 acres of land and over 5,000 sq ft of impressive accommodation.

Introduction - With grounds of approximately 5.5 acres this magnificent Grade II listed Coach House conversion affords accommodation in excess of 5,000 sq ft. Rarely available in such a beautiful and convenient location is this combination of a fine house complemented by such an area of land which is a combination of formal gardens and paddock land. Built c.1840 in a Georgian style as the Coach House and Stables to historic Brantingham Thorpe Estate, the building ultimately fell into disrepair. It has been more recently subject to a painstaking and sympathetic renovation programme into what is today a stunning family home. It holds the status of a Grade II listed building being of architectural and historic interest. The Coach House stands behind Brantingham Thorpe which is built on the site of the original Jacobean Manor House then significantly remodelled in 1868 by Christopher Sykes. This provided substantial accommodation for the house parties for his Royal Highness Prince of Wales, later Edward VII.
The Coach House stands in an elevated position towards the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds and affords some fine views across woodland, paddock and countryside and from the paddock land for many miles beyond, across the Humber Estuary and towards the West Riding.

Location - Brantingham is very much an unspoilt village within the highly regarded West Hull village network. The Coach House enjoys an idyllic location at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds and if entering the village from Elloughton you should turn right at the Triton Inn and Memorial then straight right again through pillars denoting Thorpe Drive. The roadway runs up past a handful of cottages and homes of distinction, onward past grazing land and beyond Brantingham Thorpe. Enter through white gates and the courtyard is accessed through impressive brick pillars. The picturesque village of Brantingham is clustered around a central pond and green and is one of the areas most desirable locations situated approximately 12 miles to the west of Hull. There is a well regarded contemporary country pub and restaurant, and more extensive facilities can be found in neighbouring villages of South Cave, Elloughton and Brough, all within less than 5 miles. Whilst in a delightful rural setting, Brantingham is extremely convenient for the region's business centres being only five miles from the M62, Hull city centre approximately 12 miles to the east, York approximately 28 miles to the north west and Leeds approximately 45 minutes driving time away. The historic market town of Beverley lies approximately 10 miles to the north east. Humberside Airport is approximately 20 miles to the south over the Humber Bridge and a mainline British Rail station is located in the nearby village of Brough with a service available to London Kings Cross in approximately 2.5 hours travelling time. The area is ideal for relaxing with plenty of beautiful walks available in the surrounding countryside, routes for the cyclist and well served with recreational facilities including many fine golf courses. Education facilities are provided by the highly regarded South Hunsley secondary school in the nearby village of Melton and public schools that are accessible include Hymers College in Hull, Hull Collegiate in Anlaby and Pocklington.
