Anna Cottages is a substantial, detached house that has been beautifully renovated to bring together the fine heritage of this period building along with state- of-the-art technology, craftsmanship and a luxurious finish. Originally two farmworkers’ cottages, the property dates from 1904 and has beautiful 16- pane sash windows. It sits in a peaceful corner of the Swinton Grange Estate surrounded by glorious countryside, facing its own landscaped garden with distant Moorland views beyond.
The fifty acre site that forms part of the original Swinton Grange Estate comprises eight farm buildings all of which are being transformed into high end, privately owned residential properties. The original farm was the brainchild of a Rothschild family member in the late 1800s. His 700 acre estate assembled and developed one of the country’s finest cattle herds, highlighted when hosting bovine classes for The Great Yorkshire Show in Malton during the peripatetic years of the early 1950s. All of the buildings date from the late 19th century or earlier and their craftsmanship is evident throughout.
The property is reached via a long shared drive flagged with parkland railings, just off the Malton to Castle Howard road. It sweeps around to the private electric gates beyond which lies the driveway of reclaimed cobbles and gravelled tarmac in front of the double garage. The garage has a pair of oak doors, power, light, water and a room above accessed by pull- down ladder stairs. The principal garden wraps around the property, is predominantly laid to lawn and bound to two sides by a ha-ha, with two paved terraces creating wonderful outside spaces for al fresco dining. Beyond lies the pasture land which stretches to the east and north bounded by timber and parkland fencing, and a far treeline with the North York Moors framing the horizon. There are mature parkland trees including a copse as well as newly planted specimen trees and plants including Espalier Pear and Japanese Blue Cedar
