White Hill Farm, Sawood, Keighley, BD22 9SP
- Country cottage
- Beautifully presented 2/3 bedroom accommodation
- Detached garage, stables and a useful paddock of 2.97 acres
White Hill Farm sits above Leeming Reservoir overlooking the hamlet of Leeming, the village of Oxenhope and surrounding open countryside. Oxenhope with its strong links to the Bronte family and nearby Haworth has limited services but there is a Co-op local store, pharmacy, primary school and a number of inns. Oxenhope is also the terminus of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. The nearby larger towns of Keighley and Bingley provide all the services one would expect including shops, schools and leisure facilities as well as good commuting links with direct rail services to Leeds, Bradford and Skipton as well as access to the wider road networks.
This delightful semi detached property is one of a small group of three dwellings converted from a range of traditional stone buildings accessed from Sawood Lane via a shared private drive. White Hill Farm has been created from one half of the original farmhouse and includes single storey extensions.
Externally, the property benefits from ample private parking and an excellent detached garage with power, light and water and an electric up and over door. Adjacent to the garage is a useful timber stable block comprising two boxes and a small fenced yard opening into the main paddock which extends in total to about 2.97 acres. The land and stables will be of obvious appeal to those with equestrian interests as well as those with an interest in hobby farming and conservation. The property is a registered small holding.
The property is entered via a small hall with useful storage cupboard which in turn opens into a well appointed breakfast kitchen with a comprehensive range of cream coloured base and wall units, laminate work surfaces including a breakfast bar, 1½ bowl ceramic inset sink and drainer with mixer tap and tiled splash. Integrated appliances include a NEFF electric four ring induction hob with double oven and grill and filter hood over, a separate fridge and freezer and a dishwasher.
From the kitchen an inner lobby leads through to a pleasant dining room with high, beamed ceiling. There is a useful built in cupboard at one end and glazed double doors at the other, opening onto a small terrace with steps leading down to a walled seating area. The views from the dining room are truly spectacular looking over Leeming Reservoir and the surrounding open countryside.
Adjacent to the dining room is a useful study which doubles up as an occasional third bedroom. Like the dining room, the study has a high beamed ceiling. The house bathroom comprises a three piece suite in white which includes a panelled bath with 'Redring' electric shower over, low suite WC and corner wash basin. The walls are fully tiled and the ceiling is boarded.
The living room is a delightful space, the focal point of which is the seven light exposed stone mullion window extending the full width of the room creating a light airy feel. There is a gas stove set in a feature surround with stone hearth, beams to the ceiling and stairs leading to the first floor.
On the first floor the landing gives way to a separate WC and two very attractive bedrooms. The principal bedroom has a matching mullion window to that in the living room and benefits from a comprehensive range of fitted furniture in cream comprising double wardrobes and drawers and a dressing table with mirror. The second bedroom also benefits from fitted furniture including a single wardrobe, high level storage cupboards and a matching free standing set of drawers.
Mains electricity and mains gas. Shared spring water with private UV filtration system, shared septic tank. Double glazing. Gas central heating.
