About this property

  • The Carriage House was built by Sir Andrew Fairburn in 1880 as part of the principal accommodation for his estate manager and family. In 2015, the properties were converted and reconfigured to create five individually designed homes, set against the tranquil backdrop of surrounding private parkland.

    Situated at the end of a tree-lined private driveway which meanders through the parkland, the properties immediately impress with their original distinguishing features and unique character.

    This sensitively converted property offers over 4000 square feet of spacious modern living, seamlessly integrated with period character. The generously proportioned rooms and flexible layout cater to a variety of family sizes and age groups. The current owners have carried out thoughtful improvements to the house which include a beautifully designed kitchen, light-enhancing Crittall doors, hand-built wardrobes utilising original materials, and stylish neutral décor throughout.

    The principal rooms boast stunning views over the extensive lawned garden and surrounding countryside. The gardens, wrapping around the house, lead to a well-screened paved terrace and extend to a fenced paddock area, bordered by mature hedging and trees. With a large garage, ample driveway parking, and privates lanes to Askham Bryan and Askham Richard, The Carriage House offers a perfect blend of luxury and convenience.

    The principal rooms enjoy far-reaching views over the extensive lawned garden and across neighbouring countryside. Wrapping around the house, the gardens lead out from a well-screened paved terrace and extend down to a fenced paddock area, mature hedging and trees creating a natural border. In addition to a double garage, there is ample driveway parking, and private lanes to both Askham Bryan and Askham Richard.
