A 16th century house that would not be out of place in Downton Abbey tops the list of most expensive homes sold in August.
The Grade II listed Cropton Hall sold for a whopping £1,392,549 — nearly £75,000 more than the original asking price.
The building is thought to have originally been built in 1598, and was used as a hunting lodge within the Elizabethan Heydon estate.
It later had 18th century early-Georgian additions and more recently has been renovated into a luxurious modern family home.
Period features abound at Cropton Hall, such as the large fireplace in the grand entrance hall.
You may also want to watch:
The property has five double bedrooms, three of which have an en-suite. It has four bathrooms in total and four living areas.
The property has only ever had three owners. The Hall's second owners bought it seven years ago, and have been responsible for much of the modernisation of the home.
Cropton Hall includes one acre of land and has gardens on both sides of the property.
