Anna Cottages, Swinton Grange Estate, Braysgate, Malton YO17 6QT

Anna Cottages is a substantial, detached house that has been beautifully renovated to bring together the fine heritage of this period building along with state-of-the-art technology, craftsmanship and a luxurious finish. Originally two farmworkers’ cottages, the property dates from 1904 and has beautiful 16-pane sash windows. It sits in a peaceful corner of the Swinton Grange Estate surrounded by glorious countryside, facing its own landscaped garden with distant Moorland views beyond.

The fifty acre site that forms part of the original Swinton Grange Estate comprises eight farm buildings all of which are being transformed into high end, privately owned residential properties. The original farm was the brainchild of a Rothschild family member who conceived the 700 acre estate and assembled one of the best cattle herds in the country, resulting in the Estate hosting part of The Great Yorkshire Show when peripatetic in the 1950s. All of the buildings date from the late 19th century or earlier and their craftsmanship is evident throughout.

Anna Cottages is available for immediate occupation.

The Nuheat underfloor heating system is thermostatically/zone controlled and run by a Stievel Eltron ground source heat pump.
