A rare opportunity to own a small Country Estate
in a beautiful parkland setting
Elleron Lodge is a rare opportunity to purchase a former Victorian shooting lodge set in 228 acres of stunning parkland. The centrally located Lodge is approached through ornate gates with the private driveway leading past the lake and through a secluded dale. Beyond the main house are two further properties, Cawthorne Cottage and Thornsby House, both occupying private south facing positions offering additional accommodation or letting potential. In the same ownership since 1975 the principal house requires updating giving a buyer the opportunity to design a home around their own needs. The principal rooms face south and east over the garden towards the formal water garden and lake. The main body of the house measures nearly 7,000 sq ft with a further 13,000 sq ft of ancillary accommodation including stables, a swimming pool, 2 flats and garaging. There is significant scope to develop and modernize this already attractive home to a truly remarkable country house (subject to any relevant permissions). The land has been beautifully landscaped and improved over the years and has endless possibilities.
For those with equestrian interests or anyone who want to keep livestock there is an agricultural building with a shelter and stables. The and is currently farmed on a licence agreement with the owners claiming the subsidy under the Basic Payment Scheme. There is a bridleway and footpath marked BW and FP respectively on the plan, these are a good distance from the house and gives good access to lovely walks and riding.
The land lies within a ring fence including about 155 acres of generally level, sheltered grazing land in good sized fields. The land which is currently let on two short term grazing licences is well suited to purchasers with livestock or equestrian interests if required or could be rented out again. The land is registered with the Rural Payments Agency with the owners having claimed the BPS payments. The appropriate number of Entitlements will be transferred to the purchaser on completion.
The Sporting Rights are included in the sale. Elleron Lodge has been long associated with the Saltersgate Hunt and is within easy boxing distance of the Derwent, Middleton & Sinnington hunts. There are numerous high bird shoots close by and grouse shooting on the North York Moors.
Acreage: 228 Acres
