Tenure: Freehold

Thorntree Farm comprises a magnificent detached Grade II Listed Georgian farmhouse residence extending to over 5,000 Square Feet. The property was acquired by the vendors in 2004 and has been completely refurbished to exacting standards. The accommodation is incredibly flexible. Period features such as beams and open fireplaces have been retained throughout.


The property is approached through electric gates along a sweeping driveway into a graveled courtyard area where there is ample parking for several vehicles.

The house is accessed through a traditional entrance hall and a beautiful garden room with stunning glass roof, bathing all of the rooms leading off it in natural light.

To the South side of the house there is a most useful utility room with bespoke storage facilities, shower room and inner hall which leads into a first class cinema/games room. The cinema/games room is a state of the art room which was specifically designed to incorporate a 9ft integrated cinema screen together with B&W speakers and surround sound system. Electronic blinds and a rako lighting system are controlled by iPad technology. Bespoke oak flooring and joinery are featured throughout this room, with a fabulous mezzanine granary deck which is accessed by a loft ladder. The mezzanine deck lends itself to a variety of uses. Roof lights allow natural light into this stunning family room. Bi-folding doors lead onto the patio areas making it ideal for entertaining and taking in the stunning views over the Cleveland Hills. This area could easily be used as a granny/teenager annexe.

There is a most impressive dining kitchen with the all-important Aga. The kitchen centres around a large island. Bespoke hand painted units with Oak worktops and Bosch integral appliances are featured throughout.

From the dining kitchen you move into the sitting room and dining room. This leads into a delightful formal drawing room with French doors to the rear garden. Bespoke oak flooring runs throughout.

There is a guest wing that features a beautiful double bedroom and a separate bathroom. This wing has its own hall with separate entrance making it ideal for guests. There is also a very spacious office which is connected to the outside barn, making it ideal to work from home with its own entrance. This room could also be used as a further bedroom.

On the first floor there is an absolutely superb master bedroom suite with living and dressing area and ensuite wet room. The dressing area features bespoke fitted and designed wardrobes and drawers. The wet room features limestone walls and floors with an integrated TV and a bespoke lighting and sound system that can be controlled. It has twin showers and twin basins.

There is also a large double bedroom and a family bathroom leading from a galleried landing. On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms. The bathrooms are superbly appointed with Hansgrohe fittings throughout and limestone floors and walls. The house is fully alarmed.

An internal inspection of this property is highly recommended to appreciate the standard of the accommodation. Rarely does a property of this character and location come onto the open market.


The gardens and grounds form a particularly attractive feature and are divided into various entertaining areas. At the front of the property there is a large formal lawn with mature borders and views over the hills to Roseberry Topping, with a Yorkshire stone patio area. To the side and rear of the property there are several further attractive patio and barbeque areas that are ideal for entertaining, surrounded by formal lawns. There is a delightful orchard with a variety of heritage fruit trees and an extensive vegetable plot.

At the rear of the property there is a recently established woodland plantation. Over 3,000 trees have been planted by our vendors around the property. All the trees have been meticulously annotated. The whole property is complemented by some attractive grassland and in all extends to 23.28 acres approx.

In addition there is FULL planning permission for a two storey leisure suite, garaging and ancillary facilities. Copies of the plans and planning permission are available by request from our offices.
