Sporting estate does not come cheap
5:12pm Tuesday 30th October 2012 in News
ANYONE looking for their own premium sporting and commercial estate need search no further – if they have a cool £7m to spare.
The 1,350-acrre Murton Grange estate at Hawnby on the North York Moors has gone on the market through national property consultants Carter Jonas.
It includes a significant part of the Murton Grange shoot, which is considered to be one of the most prestigious and acclaimed high bird pheasant and partridge shoots and is regularly cited as one of the top 50 shoots in the country.
Formerly in the ownership of Sir Tom Cowie of the Cowie Group - now Arriva - it comprises more than 900 acres of arable land, 150 acres of grassland, 280 acres of woodland scrub, and dale, with buildings, yard and tracks making up the remainder.
Also included are five residential properties including a principal farmhouse, two traditional semi-detached cottages, a bungalow currently used as a shoot lodge, a barn conversion and a range of traditional and modern farm buildings.
Situated close to Sutton Bank, the shoot is in an area of many high quality shoots, but, according to The Field, ranks amongst the finest.
Dan Taylor of Carter Jonas said:: “It is rare for an estate of this calibre to come to the market.
“It is likely to be of interest to large scale commercial farmers, sportsmen and those from outside the region looking for a unique investment opportunity within the agricultural sector.”
