Property description

Tenure: Freehold

St. John's Croft is one of the oldest and finest town based manor houses in East Yorkshire. A unique 3-winged house, it was the original Manor House in Driffield, dating back to the 1700's, when the surrounding area was merely fields. Throughout Georgian, Regency and Victorian periods, it developed into an enchanting grade listed residency of considerable prestige, character and important local heritage, with an abundance of listed features, befitting of a stately home. Now arriving on the market in 2020, the traditional servant wing and master wings of the house have been transformed by the present owners into a seductively modern, designer dwelling.

The detached property of over 3300sqft, is situated in grounds approximating half an acre of walled garden and landscaped 200-year old yew trees, which offer seclusion and tranquillity, and country feel, while conveniently located in the heart of Driffield town. Such privacy offers a rarefied feel, and it is unique to have the essence of country retreat and town prominence. It is a true combination of country manor house grandeur, town centre distinction, and contemporary stylish living. Simply an unparalleled property in the complete living experience it offers.

AREA St Johns Road is a sought after location, with many families combing country living with weekday working in cities such as York, Sheffield and London. Situated within walking distance of the Town Centre and amenities, including many independent businesses, cafes, restaurants and bars.

The famous Wolds and countryside walks is on your doorstep, with secluded beaches and a Michelin star restaurant only 15 minutes away, and the added benefit of a train station making larger cities commutable.
