High Hollins Farmhouse, Hollins Lane, Keighley BD20 6LX
Guide Price £495,000
High Hollins Farm is accessed via a private drive leading up through the land from Hollins Lane overlooking the nearby village of Utley. The vibrant and diverse town of Keighley is just 1.5 miles to the south offering a wide range of services and amenities including shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, a leisure centre and schooling for all ages. There are regular services by rail to Skipton, Bradford and Leeds and good access to the wider road networks to North and West Yorkshire and east Lancashire.
The farmhouse and cottage together with three further barns form the farmstead at High Hollins Farm. The farmstead is no longer in agricultural use and the former barns which have been recently sold are now in the process of conversion to individual residential dwellings. Once complete, the farmstead will create an exclusive rural community of four dwellings in total.
The house is entered via a generous porch into an impressive reception hall with separate w.c., door to the integral garage and stairs to the first floor with gallery landing above. Double doors from the hall lead through to a magnificent living room with multi fuel stove set in a feature stone fireplace incorporating alcoves. The generous mullion windows to three sides create a wonderful light airy feel and afford fabulous views over the land and valley beyond. A generous porch/boot room leads through to a good sized farmhouse style kitchen with a red oil fired Aga set in a feature surround and beamed ceiling. There is a comprehensive range of base and wall units, laminate work surfaces and stainless steel sink with double drainer. Beyond the kitchen is a pleasant dining room which in turn leads through to the rear hall with cloakroom, external
door to the rear yard and stairs to the first floor. There is a generous lounge with multi fuel stove and exposed boarded floor.
On the first floor the gallery landing gives way to two double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes. A brand new master bedroom with ensuite and a new house bathroom have been partially created within the space above the integral garage and will be accessed from a new opening to be formed from the landing.
To the other side of the gallery landing are two good sized bedrooms and a recently added house bathroom. The original larger house bathroom which remains in situ would create a further generous bedroom. An inner landing provides access via a ladder to a very spacious attic area which, although currently used for storage, could provide significant additional accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary planning and Building Regulators approval.
The house has a private drive which extends to rear of the property where there is access to the cellar via an external door where the oil fired central heating boiler and the filters for the water supply are housed. There is a substantial detached double garage together with ample private parking.
Beyond the drive and garage to the east is an attractive walled croft punctuated with mature trees while to the north is an excellent pasture extending to about 2.90 acres, perfect for those with
equestrian or hobby farming interests.
Surrounding the farmstead is a versatile block of grazing,pasture and meadow extending in total to 22.91 acres shown edged in blue on the sale plan. The land is available by separate negotiation as a whole or in lots (subject to access).
Mains electricity. Borehole water (shared). Septic tank drainage. Oil central heating.
