This stunning Georgian home, for sale above Filey, has rarely been placed on the market
Once a farmhouse dating back to 1799, and on the site of an earlier manor, Grade ll Listed Church Cliff House stands above Filey Bay within seven acres of grounds, that include established gardens and paddocks.
The imposing Georgian property that has been home to just three families in the past 120 years, has been refurbished with care.
Its luxurious kitchen has bespoke Stirling and Jones hand-made units, with a Lacanche Range Cooker, Nero granite worktops, a travertine stone floor, and a bright and open breakfast with living area that looks out over the gardens.
A laundry room and a walk-in pantry add to the facilities.
In the drawing room with full length windows, a marble fireplace draws the eye, and the large shutters are original ones.
Another feature of note, among the many within this house, is a lovely arched window on the half landing of an impressive returning staircase.
With an entrance hall and four reception rooms in total, the house also has a study, and cellars.
There are five bedrooms in addition to the master bedroom suite, and a guest bedroom suite, along with two further bathrooms.
The house, built in English brick with stone dressings and a hipped slate roof, has two garages and several outbuildings.
Rear gardens include a sheltered York stone patio, perfect for entertaining.
A gravel path passes through parkland to a far paddock, and there is a delightful walled garden.
An orchard lies within part-medieval walls, with a pond, herbaceous borders, vegetable beds, a potting shed and greenhouse.
Fenced paddocks beyond include a holding paddock and field shelter.
Church Cliff House is for sale priced £895,000 with Blenkin and Co, tel. 01904 671672
