Tenure: Freehold

Of interest to Investors/Developers to acquire a substantial complex of cottages with an approved planning consent to convert the cottages to create a site with existing farmhouse plus 13 additional private dwellings, with up to 12,765 sqft (1,186 sqm) of habitable accommodation.

Claxton Grange is a group of self-contained cottages set in a village like environment. It was formerly a working farm before being converted to a holiday complex. Planning is now approved from pure holiday use to a permanent residental occupancy (subject to conditions).

The main part of the Grange is formed around an attractive courtyard with the farmhouse on the edge of the cottage community where it looks out onto stunning far reaching views. Traditionally built of clamp brick and dating back to the 1800’s it boasts two reception rooms, a generous breakfast kitchen and five bedrooms,
of which two have en-suite bathrooms, as well as a house bathroom.

Planning - The Vendors have recently submitted a revised planning application on the property (Application No: 15/00014/MFUL) for ‘Change of use with alterations of 13 Holiday Cottages to form 1 x 4 bedroom dwelling, 4 x 3 bedroom dwellings, 7 x 2 bedroom dwellings and 1 x 1 bedroom dwelling with parking and amenity areas and commercial facilities’.

The application has been approved by Ryedale Council Planning Committee subject to a S106 Agreement being completed. This is pending. The S106 Agreement will require the payment of a commuted sum of £28,500 towards Public Open Space. The planning consent will also be subject to the imposition of a condition restricting the occupation of the 13 units to Local Needs Occupancy in accordance with Ryedale Council Policy SP21.

The Cottages - The cottages make up a row of pretty brick terrace houses located in their own grounds, each cottage has a sitting room with open fire and dining area, breakfast kitchen, two or three bedrooms, a house bathroom and separate WC. At the end of the terrace is the larger cottage, this has a sitting room with a large aspect and French door out to the garden at the rear, a dining room, breakfast kitchen, four good size bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Claxton Grange is situated on the A64 between York and Malton less than a mile from the popular village of Claxton. It is extremely convenient for access to the historic City of York which is approximately 7 miles away as well as direct access from the A64 to the commercial centres of West Yorkshire. The railway station at York gives fast access to London Kings Cross (2 hours) and Edinburgh (2.5 hours) as well as regular services to Leeds and Manchester. There is a good choice of schooling, both private and state within the surrounding areas. Claxton Grange is surrounded by beautiful countryside not far from the Howardian Hills and North York Moors.

Claxton Grange is approached down a tarmac drive to a parking area, the gardens and grounds are extensive and encompass woodland, orchards and a wildlife pond. There is an enclosed level lawned area ideal for children to play as well as an adjacent paddock. Leisure facilities include a hard surface tennis court and an indoor swimming pool with changing rooms and attached garden room.
