Originally known as Wyndham Hall after its original owner Thomas Wyndham, Crayke Manor is Grade II* listed, being of historic and architectural importance and is jewelled with magnificent period features throughout including, oak panelling through the hall and main reception rooms, mullioned windows and leaded lights.

    The property has undergone a series of sympathetic improvements and renovations over the years, often using reclaimed materials, and is now presented in excellent condition. More recent improvements to the property include Cat 5 wiring, underfloor heating and a built in Linn sound system.

    Set in stunning parkland and beautifully landscaped gardens, the property is approached by a grand, sweeping driveway leading to the front of the property. There is also a separate rear entrance, both have the benefit of electric gates.

    The principal house is arranged over three floors providing well proportioned and flexible family living space. The ground floor comprises a sizeable 37 foot drawing room, the real centre piece of the accommodation, along with a less formal sitting room, music room, library and kitchen. The rooms are in keeping with the architecture of its time with many featuring striking exposed beams, wooden paneling and feature fireplaces.

    To the first and second floors there a nine bedrooms served by four bathrooms. Of particular note is the impressive master bedroom suite with a fabulous en suite bathroom and walk in wardrobe.
