Residents of a sleepy village are braced for change as its major landowner sells up. The ASKHAM RICHARD Estate, is an historic Estate located in and around the village of Askham Richard, on the outskirts of York, in North Yorkshire.

The local Estate Agents have already been instructed to sell all of the farms and residential properties that make up the North Yorkshire estate, complete with shooting rights to its 800 acres. For anyone with £6.5 million, this is a rare opportunity to buy three farms, 14 residential properties and 54 acres of woodland, all at once. The estate has historically made up the greater part of the village, which is four miles from York.

The estate was originally bought by George Naden, a Cheshire-based investor, around 40 years ago, and owned together with his wife, Amelia. The couple's two daughters had around 15 years ago inherited the collection of properties and land when their father died in 1997 and ran it together with their mother until her death in 2008.

Now the elder daughter June Paterson, 71, who lives in Trafford, Greater Manchester, has put it on the market following the death of her younger sister, Kathleen Dingle.
