A Detached Stone Built House With A Modern Interior, Great Views & Equestrian Facilities
5.3 ACRES (stms) - Situated in a rural location on the outskirts of this popular village, this spacious and well presented property is ready to move straight into. Previously a barn, the property was completely rebuilt from the ground upwards in the mid 1980’s and now provides versatile open plan living on the ground floor and traditional bedrooms on the first floor. The property is surrounded by open countryside with view towards the Pennines.
The property is approached over its own gated and private driveway and a door opens to the entrance hall having doors off to a cloakroom, utility room and into a wonderful open plan space having exposed beams, some exposed stone walls and comprising a luxury modern fitted kitchen with AGA, separate electric cooker, space for an American styles fridge freezer, granite worktops and peninsular units which separate the kitchen from the dining area which has floor to ceiling windows with French doors to the front, set in a stone surround, ample space for a large table and chairs and to the rear is a wide, open tread spiral staircase leading to the first floor with vaulted ceiling above and glazed door to the rear wrap around ‘Amdega’ conservatory which enjoys views over the gardens and countryside beyond. Off the dining area is the lounge which is triple aspect and has a central fireplace housing a cream contemporary log burning stove. To the front of the lounge is an area ideal for placing a desk and a door off leads to the study which could also be used as an additional or occasional bedroom. On the first floor is a galleried landing with doors to three double bedrooms, all having excellent far reaching countryside views, the principal bedroom having en-suite shower room with feature arched window in a stone surround. There is a pleasant family bathroom with double ended, free standing bath and twin wash hand basins.
The House is set back off the lane behind stone walling which continues around the properties boundary and a timber farm gate opens to a block paved private driveway providing parking for several vehicles. Access along the side of the house leads to the mature landscaped rear garden with stone paved terrace patio areas, paved pathways and lawns, beyond which are open fields with stunning views towards the Pennines. Adjacent to the driveway is a stone built double garage with adjoining tack room, a wood store/small stable and further parking area. To the left of the garaging, a concrete base has been laid ready for a further stable or carport.
Behind the garaging are 6 timber stables (three horse & three pony) in a ‘U’ shape around a concrete yard with separate hay and feed rooms, all with power. Behind the stable is a 40m x 20m manege having a sand and rubber surface and is fenced all round. There is a field shelter and planning permission for a 60m x 20m steel portal agricultural building. The owners currently rent a further 4.5 acres from a neighbour which may be able to continue with the new purchaser. The vendors inform us that there is plenty of hacking within the local area.
Paddocks & Land
Behind the stables are 2 fields with stone wall boundary to one side and post and stock fencing to the others, in all the grazing land excluding the manege is around 4.5 acres, subject to a measured survey.
