CARLTON Green Hall has stood proud through more than a century and a half of change since it was built in 1846 as a farmhouse for the Duke of Northumberland.

During that time it too has changed considerably, never more dramatically than when the current owners undertook a meticulous and comprehensive scheme of improvement to create what is now a stunning country house.

Today this magnificent Grade II listed sandstone Jacobean-style house offers spacious and superbly appointed living.

Extending to approximately 3,770ft, Carlton Green Hall has a porch, entrance hall with travertine flooring and partpanelled walls, living room, dining room and drawing room. There is also a cloakroom, study, utility/boot room and contemporary breakfast kitchen. Open to both the kitchen and the living room is a full-width conservatory with a feature fireplace, wood burner, underfloor heating and delightful views over the gardens.

The house also has a fine barrel-vaulted cellar.

Upstairs are the family bathroom and five bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite bathroom, while the master bedroom has a luxurious en-suite bathroom and spacious, well-fitted dressing room.

Period features include stone-mullioned and shuttered windows, diamond glazing, stone fireplaces, wood panelling, stone flagged and timber floors and fine oak doors.

Carlton Green Hall is in attractive Zetland Hunt countryside a mile outside the village of Aldbrough St John. The house stands in a slightly elevated position overlooking attractive south-facing gardens, which include an ornamental pond.

The property has extensive flagged patios, a timber summer house ideal for entertaining, detached stone outbuilding providing several outside stores and a triple garage.

The property’s 5.6 acres of gardens and grounds also include an area of informal grassland and a small grass paddock.
