Exceptional sporting estate in Yorkshire

One of the most important sporting estates in Yorkshire, Murton Grange, has come on the market as a whole for £7m. Located in the North York Moors National Park, the estate comprises the farm, with over 1,000 acres of land including arable land and grassland, as well as woodland, scrub and dale; a modern range of farm buildings and a nationally acclaimed high bird pheasant shoot; the farmhouse; two cottages, and a bungalow/shoot lodge. There is also a barn conversion with lots of potential.

The farmhouse is an attractive period stone property with a porch, kitchen, dining room, sitting room, office and four bedrooms, as well as two attic rooms with potential for conversion.

The farm cottage is a three bedroom semi-detached cottage, while the attached barn offers further development potential. The bungalow is currently used as the shoot lodge but could easily be converted back to a dwelling and Silver Hill, the barn, has two bedrooms and a bathroom and includes a garage and courtyard/lawned garden.

The farm includes a substantial part of Murton Grange Shoot which is a well-known high bird pheasant and partridge shoot renowned for providing testing birds for the most accomplished guns – the terrain is ideal. The rights are currently let together with rights over adjoining third party land and the leased area incorporates 16 drives and provides double days if required.
