Sand Beds Farm is accessed via a private drive from Trough Lane located between the nearby villages of Denholme, Cullingworth, Haworth and Oxenhope. These local villages provide a good range of services including shops, primary schools, pubs and restaurants. The larger towns of Keighley to the north and Bingley to the north east offer a more comprehensive range of facilities including rail links with direct services to Skipton, Bradford and Leeds. Commuting by road from Sand Beds Farm is easy with the A629 being at the end of Trough Lane, providing swift access to the wider road and motorway network.
The farmhouse and barns are positioned nicely back from Trough Lane accessed via a short private drive that leads round to an attractive stone set courtyard around which the barns are arranged. The property will be of interest to developers and private individuals alike with scope to
create multiple separate dwellings or one substantial single residence, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions and Listed Building Consents. The farmhouse is Grade II Listed and although now requiring complete renovation and refurbishment throughout, offers scope to create a family home of real character. Original features include chamfered stone mullion windows, an inscribed date plaque with central moulded roundel, quoins and a fine ornamental lintel to the former central doorway. The farmhouse also includes an integral annexe cottage formerly used by agricultural workers, which adds further flexibility to this interesting restoration opportunity.
Adjoining the farmhouse to the west is an extensive range of traditional stone barns and ancillary buildings that form an enclosed sheltered courtyard. The buildings offer real potential for development having previously been granted full planning permission and Listed Building Consent for conversion to form three separate four bedroom dwellings with an approximate total gross internal developed floor area of 500 sq metres (5,382 sq ft). The above scheme was approved under planning permission 14/02817/FUL and Listed Building Consent 14/02818/LBC dated September 2014, both of which have now expired. The farmstead stands in a useful ring fence of land extending to about 6.15 acres in total, providing control and security to the immediate surroundings and outlook. The farmstead will also appeal to those with equestrian, hobby
farming and conservation interests.
A right of way to access the adjacent agricultural land will be reserved over the section of drive shown coloured brown. There are no BPS entitlements included in the sale and purchasers will covenant not to make any future claims for agricultural or environmental subsidies. The vendors reserve rights to maintain all existing service media and conduits that pass through the property being sold.
