Marton Grange is a beautiful, Grade II Listed property which originally formed part of the Sewerby Hall Estate until its sale in 1947. In more recent years the house has been meticulously renovated, upgraded and extended to create a very substantial residence which currently operates as a successful country guest house accredited with a 5*Silver AA rating. Set within extensive mature grounds, the property is located 3 miles north of Bridlington and around 1 mile from the coast.
The principal part of the house dates from the Georgian period and displays many of the typical features of that era including beautifully proportioned rooms, impressive fireplaces, cornicing, heavy panelled internal doors and large sash windows to let in plenty of natural light. A later two-storey extension to the rear of the property further enhances the property and continues this theme, with a tasteful scheme of interior design. The current owners have undertaken a full refurbishment of all 11 letting rooms and respective en-suite shower rooms and the building has the benefit of a lift.
Towards the rear of the building and on the ground floor is a private suite of rooms which are currently occupied by the owners and comprises of hall, lounge, study (potential kitchen), double bedroom and shower room. Alternatively, subject to securing the necessary consents, there is the possibility of splitting the original house from its later extension to create a main house with separate cottage/annexe for multi-generational living or for letting purposes.
Marton Grange is approached via a sweeping driveway with ample room for guest parking and leads to a recently constructed double garage block with fully-equipped laundry room alongside. We also understand that planning consent is in place for the construction of three, one bedroom self-catering cottages and a two bedroom manager’s accommodation within the grounds, which would be ideal to run alongside the existing business. A biomass boiler has been installed within the garage block which provides cost effective central heating and hot water as well as healthy RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) payments, resulting in an EPC ‘A’ rating. Extensive, landscaped grounds complement the property and are made up of formal lawned gardens interspersed with a variety of shrubs, borders, fruit trees, vegetable patch and pond.
In brief the accommodation comprises: conservatory entrance, hall, sitting room, garden room, two breakfast rooms, office, kitchen, food store/pantry, 11 en-suite letting bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, owner’s accommodation with hall, study, lounge, bedroom and shower room.
Sewerby Cum Marton is a small, rural hamlet located on the B1255 between the villages of Sewerby and Flamborough and adjacent to Grade I Listed Sewerby Hall. Nearby Bridlington offers a comprehensive range of amenities which are geared up for residents and tourists alike, most notably two award-winning beaches. As well as being within easy reach of the Heritage coastline, including Flamborough Head and the RSPB Reserve at Bempton Cliffs, the property is within a short drive of several stately homes including Sledmere House, Burton Agnes Hall and Sewerby Hall.
The current owners have established a well-respected and profitable business with a healthy turnover of around £149,000 (excl. vat) but are now looking towards retirement, resulting in this genuine sale and an exciting opportunity for the successful purchaser.
