    About this property

    • An outstanding example of Georgian architecture, this superb 18th century country house is unequivocally one of the finest houses in Ryedale. Set in a commanding position with far reaching views across the Vale of Pickering, the property benefits from around 15 acres of gardens, paddocks and state-of-the-art equestrian facilities.

      The property has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment during the vendor's ownership and no expense has been spared with the renovation and restoration of this fine home. Normanby Hill House has been brought back to its full architectural glory, with the restoration of the grand entrance, decorative plaster work, architraves, exposed beams and an impressive staircase. Sympathetic additions have been introduced including wooden panelling and window seats at the bases of the newly installed hardwood double glazed sash windows.

      With excellent eco-credentials the property benefits from two air source heat pumps, intelligent lighting control system, two-phase electric power and two Wi-Fi systems (one is 5G), private drainage and a modern treatment plant.

      The property offers luxurious, well-planned family accommodation arranged over three floors. The ground floor layout is designed with family living in mind, the heart of the home being the 24 foot Kitchen-breakfast-living room, with stunning vistas across the surrounding grounds. The hand crafted kitchen is fitted with top of the range fixtures and fittings including a 5-oven Aga, Butler sink with Quooker tap, island unit with induction hob and breakfast bar, integrated appliances including two dishwashers and a wine fridge. Adjacent to the kitchen are a number of store rooms including a traditional pantry with stone slab shelving and useful boot room. Continuing through the ground floor there are four impressive reception rooms and a more relaxed snug, all of near perfect proportions.

      The first floor accommodation is equally as impressive, with a potential of six bedrooms, two currently used as dressing rooms to the principal bedroom suite and five bathrooms all of which are furnished with the highest quality fittings. The second floor is home to a superb loft apartment with its own kitchenette, sitting room and two bedrooms served by a bathroom, ideal for teenage children or visiting guests.

      Approached through stone gate pillars, electric gates open to a sweeping private driveway. There is plenty of parking to the front and side of a four bay car port and double garage.

      The house is flanked by a sizeable terrace, paved in York Stone, which provides excellent areas for entertaining and enjoying the panoramic views. Built into the bank is a bespoke exercise and spa pool, heated by its own air-source heat pump. Towards the end of the terrace a space has been created for an outdoor kitchen and in the other direction a raised terrace extends the length of the house with several sitting out spaces from which to enjoy the views. To the front of the property there is an immaculately maintained lawn, flanked by herbaceous borders and clipped yew hedges. An expansive orchard sits to the west, dotted with apple, pear, plum, green gage and walnut trees.

      The property also benefits from state of the art equestrian facilities, including a stable block with eight loose boxes, two foaling boxes, a wash bay and tack room. In addition there is a further L-shaped shed with two bay open barn and two timber stables. There are 10 individually fenced paddocks with five rail timber posts amounting to around 11 acres in all.
