Scosthrop Manor, Air­ton. Price: £975,000

ren­o­vated the house and took care to re­tain, en­hance and un­cover the his­toric fea­tures.

One of the finest grade II listed prop­er­ties in Mal­ham­dale, Scosthrop Manor was built in 1603. It was re­mod­elled in 1904 by a West York­shire in­dus­tri­al­ist, who bought the house for his daugh­ter, Miss Gar­nett-Orme. She was well-con­nected and is said to have en­ter­tained royal vis­i­tors there.

David and Kath have re­con­fig­ured the space to suit mod­ern liv­ing, cre­at­ing a large din­ing kitchen. They have also in­su­lated the prop­erty and in­stalled a mod­ern boiler.

The house now has an en­trance porch, re­cep­tion hall, liv­ing/din­ing room with mul­ti­fuel stove, a but­ler’s pantry, sit­ting room, din­ing kitchen with Aga, util­ity room and a cloak­room.

Up­stairs, there is a mas­ter bed­room with en-suite shower room, five fur­ther bed­rooms, a cloak­room and a house bath­room.

Out­side, there is a drive lined with parterre box hedg­ing and a stone pa­tio area. There is park­ing for four to five ve­hi­cles, a dou­ble garage/work­shop with elec­tric door and an in­spec­tion pit.

The rear gar­dens have been de­signed to max­imise the won­der­ful views, with a ha-ha cre­ated to give an un­in­ter­rupted vista down the valley to Mal­ham Cove.

There are level lawns with flower beds, an­cient yew bushes, and a cov­ered pa­tio area for out­door din­ing.

David and Kath are sell­ing to take on an­other prop­erty project. “Ren­o­vat­ing Scosthrop has been our hobby for the last 25 years and although we love the house and it has been a lovely place to raise our fam­ily, we re­ally want an­other project.”
