Back in its heyday the original village of North Cray became almost a private estate for the wealthy. By the beginning of the 18th century large houses with magnificent ornate gardens lined the banks of the River Cray and the surrounding area. Houses such as North Cray Place, Loring Hall and Vale Mascal were owned by people like Lord Castlereagh (Chief Secretary for Ireland 1798 to 1801 and Foreign Secretary 1812 to 1822) and Lord Vansittart (Permanent Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs 1930 to 1938).
The current owner has lived happily in the property for over 30 years, it is just time now to find something a little smaller.
