We’ve had a look to see exactly what’s on offer in and around Harrogate for those with a large budget and we stumbled across this absolutely stunning mansion.
Marketed by Knight Frank, this beautiful period property is just 7 miles away from Harrogate itself and is priced at a staggering £6.75m.

However, step through the front entrance of this glorious property and you’ll immediately be blown away by its pristine condition and impressive decor.
The Grand Hall with its stone flooring an elaborate features provides the perfect first impression but an extraordinary level of care and attention has been put into all parts of this period property.
It has been beautifully restored throughout and the previous owners have spared no expense in making each room as breathtakingly beautiful as the next. Opulent features and luxurious decor perfectly complement the original features, making this resemble a fine Regency home straight out of a period drama.
In addition to the main residence, those lucky enough to purchase Loftus Hill will also acquire a 3 bedroom detached cottage, an off-lying detached gardeners cottage and the Grade II listed Tithe Barn, which is now a function suite that can seat 100 banqueting guests. This really is a dream property!
