The location and the manor's original features and large garden were all part of the attraction when Angela Wardale bought the property in 2005. “It's a beautiful house and very private because it's set back behind a wall so very few people know that it's here,” says Angela, who runs an antique shop in Malton.

Over the years she and her family have added an oak-framed garden room, updated the bathrooms and kitchen and invested in the gardens. She is now selling to downsize and adds: “I'm really to go. It's been a wonderful family home.”

Norton Manor has three reception rooms, a garden room, hall, a kitchen/ breakfast room with Aga and utility room, five bedrooms, a hobby room and four bathrooms. Outside is a large garden, courtyard and garaging. A two-bedroom cottage is available by separate negotiation.
