North York moors

Irton Manor, which trades as a private and exclusive hire holiday let on the edge of the North York Moors, is on the hunt for a buyer.

Christie & Co has been instructed to sell the late 1800’s manor house, which is located in Irton near to Scarborough, North Yorkshire

The current owners renovated the property when they bought it, and it now comes with luxury amenities, including an indoor heated swimming pool, mini golf course, croquet lawn and tennis court.

The property comes with six double bedrooms and is set within 15 acres of gardens, parkland and woodland.

There is also a courtyard cottage, an attached three bed cottage and a detached two bed timber lodge within the grounds which overlooks a small lake.

One of the unique features of Irton Manor are the stained glass windows, which were installed when the house was originally built and depict the image of an old English huntsman, John Peel, on horseback.

Paul and Karan Ridley, the current owners, reveal how they came to buy Irton Manor: “A friend asked me if I would like to attend a Macmillan garden fete at Irton Manor. We loved the gardens so much that we asked the owner to sell the house to us, and that was how we end up buying this beautiful property. It was very run down at the time, and took us close to two years to renovate the entire house, both inside and out.”

Mark Worley, director at Christie & Co’s Newcastle office, comments: “Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £1.95m for the freehold. There is also a further 20 acres of land available by separate negotiation which includes several rented cottages and a riding school.”
