    About this property

    • Stainton Hall Farmhouse is an attractive, detached period property of ample proportions set in a wonderful elevated position close to the centre of the village, south of the farmyard and buildings.

      Built in sandstone with a slate roof, the property requires full refurbishment and improvement, but many period and traditional features remain and could be renovated and incorporated to suit a purchaser's taste. In all, the internal accommodation currently extends to almost 2,900 sq ft. The ground floor accommodation comprises entrance hall leading to kitchen, sitting room with fireplace, two utility rooms, pantry and boot room. The first floor of the property includes bathroom and five bedrooms, of which the south facing bedrooms benefit from views across the countryside and river beyond. The second floor is currently divided into two rooms of generous proportions. The planning consent for the redevelopment of the property creates a superb home with open plan living spaces on the ground floor, study, five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

      The property is flanked to the west by mature trees which provide natural screening, encircled by dry stone walls and a lawn garden to the south, with open fields and countryside beyond.

      Traditional buildings and new build planning consent.

      The extensive range of stone built, traditional farm buildings to the north of the farmhouse total over 7,350 sq ft. These buildings incorporate some wonderful original features and details, currently providing general farm storage.

      The farm buildings benefit from approved planning consent for the demolition of modern outbuildings, construction of one principal residence new dwelling and the conversion of stone outbuildings to three principal residence dwellings with associated access, parking, amenity spaces and landscaping works together with construction of a double garage to serve the existing farmhouse.

      The application permits the consented farm building conversion and new build property to principal residential dwellings and for no other purpose including any other use in Class C3 of the Schedule to the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 2020 (or in any provision equivalent to that Class in any statutory instrument revoking and re-enacting that Order with or without modification). The properties shall be the only or principal home of the main occupant and it shall be occupied by the main occupant for at least 80% of the calendar year in the event that the main occupant occupies more than one property. The property shall not be occupied by the main occupant as a second home. The occupants shall supply to the local planning authority (within 14 days of the local planning authority's request to do so) such information as the local planning authority may reasonably require in order to determine compliance with this condition. For the avoidance of doubt the property shall not be used as a single unit of holiday letting accommodation.

      Full details are available on the North York Moors National Park planning portal using reference NYM/2022/0567, alternatively copy documents can be forwarded on request.

      Notwithstanding the current planning consent, the buildings could form part of some ancillary accommodation to the main farmhouse to create an extensive and unique dwelling or alternatively could provide office space, storage, equestrian facilities or other amenity use, subject to the necessary consents.
