The in­side story

groom­ing par­lour, art gallery and a leisure floor that could ri­val a com­mer­cial spa.

Peter Clark­son, man­ager of Man­ning Stain­ton’s Har­ro­gate of­fice, says: “It’s spec­tac­u­lar. We’ve had a lot of in­ter­est from peo­ple who have been wait­ing for some­thing like this to come on the mar­ket.”

So far, the would-be buy­ers are mostly from York­shire with one ex­pres­sion of in­ter­est from Lon­don and, ac­cord­ing to Peter, they in­clude “peo­ple who have come into money and foot­ballers”.

He adds: “The fish­ing rights from its river frontage and the un­in­ter­rupted views across the val­ley and over the river are truly breath­tak­ing and make this one of the best plots in the district.”

The sale has been forced as the owner, a for­mer prop­erty de­vel­oper, no longer has the funds to com­plete the project. How­ever, he spared no ex­pense on cre­at­ing what he as­sumed would be his for­ever home. It is filled with mar­ble from nearby stone spe­cial­ists Lapi­cida and one of the most re­mark­able fea­tures is the stair­case. Lapi­cida also supplied the fire­places, floor­ing and bath­rooms. The sit­ting room fea­tures an aquar­ium and leads to a day room. The lux­ury kitchen has been fit­ted with units, Sub Zero ap­pli­ances and a bar. The five bed­rooms are set over the up­per floors and all have en-suites.

There is a whole floor de­voted to leisure. It in­cludes a heated pool with a lift­ing mar­ble floor, which al­lows home­own­ers to re­place the pool with a solid floor at the touch of a but­ton. It also has an in­fin­ity pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and chang­ing room along with a mar­ble bar, wine store, gym, cin­ema room, art gallery and dog groom­ing par­lour. Out­side there is a sum­mer house with kitchen, mar­ble fire­place and bath­room, a foun­tain and or­na­men­tal gar­dens. The dou­ble garage is in­te­gral and has a mar­ble floor.

Peter Clark­son es­ti­mates that the buyer will need to spend about £500,000 to fin­ish. “The leisure floor needs some more work and the grounds need land­scap­ing,” he says.

LIV­ING IT LARGE: Netheredge of­fers 12,000 sq ft of space and a no-ex­pense-spared in­te­rior filled with mar­ble from stone spe­cial­ists Lapi­cida, but it still needs work to fin­ish it off. The £3m prop­erty on Lands Lane boasts a leisure floor that ri­vals a com­mer­cial spa in its fa­cil­i­ties.
