The sale of Scencliff Grange offers an exceptional opportunity to buy a manageable sized residential, farming and amenity estate in a private yet accessible location in the National Park. There is an attractive south facing six bedroom Grade II Listed family house with potential studio flat. The house requires updating but offers enormous potential to create a wonderful family home. The large general purpose building could be adapted for storage , livestock or equestrian use and services almost 95 acres of productive farmland and woodland which is also a haven for wildlife as well as providing magnificent views to the White Horse. A further 25 acres of productive grassland lying ½ mile to the south is available as a separate lot.

Scencliff Grange is split by a single track country lane connecting Oldstead and Coxwold villages. Coxwold is one of the most sought after villages in the area whilst Oldstead is home to The Black Swan Michelin Starred restaurant. To the north lies the famous White Horse at Kilburn whilst Kilburn village is home to the renowned Mouseman oak furniture. To the east lie the ruins of Byland Abbey beyond which is Ampleforth Abbey and College.

The House
Double fronted Grade II listed property occupying an outstanding position with southerly aspect and far reaching views over unspoilt rolling and well wooded countryside. The house is believed to be of Georgian origins with a later wing and is stone built under a pantile roof. The accommodation extends to approximately 4,768 sq ft including a six bedroom family house with accommodation arranged over three floors together with an adjoining first floor studio with separate access offering potential for the creation of a studio flat, office or another two bedrooms. The current accommodation is shown on the floor plan and having been the vendors’ family home for the last 45 years now offers an opportunity for a purchaser to upgrade or rearrange the accommodation. It may be possible subject to obtaining planning consent to extend the accommodation into the single storey building currently comprising stores together with the summer house / garden room. The house includes character features including the entrance hall and staircase, oak beams and cornicing, the carved fire surround in the drawing room and “Mousey Thompson” carved yew post in the study.

The land
Lot 1 extends to approximately 95 acres lying around the centrally placed house and buildings. The property is divided by a single track country lane which runs between the house and buildings. The land rises gently from about 90 metres above sea level on the southern boundary to approximately 139 metres at the north west. Natural contour and undulation add to the landscape and amenity value of the property enhanced by the considerable tree planting, the majority of which was carried out about 15 years ago. Whilst the farmland is currently in grass cropping 21 acres has previously been under arable rotation. In addition there is almost 40 acres of permanent grass the majority of which comprises the beautiful upland dale with slopes lined by gorse banks. There are 26 acres of well established woodland forming a shelterbelt to almost three sides of the property through which mown rides have been created for walks and wildlife viewing. The sporting rights are in hand and a shoot has been run in conjunction with neighbouring landowners.

This block comprises two adjoining fields including a recently reseeded northern field with a larger grass bankside to the south. Towards the centre of the holding is a small woodland area incorporating a Nissan hut style storage shed.
