Manor House Farm presents an exciting opportunity to acquire a residential smallholding in one of the Yorkshire Dales' most picturesque settings.
The property is sure to have wide appeal from those simply seeking a lifestyle change to those seeking a property from which to work or with potential to generate income. The dwelling is subject to a local occupancy condition and the current owners operate an agricultural engineering business from the premises.
The dwelling, which has been sympathetically converted from a traditional stone barn, provides accommodation of charm and character over two floors. The entrance hall with stone flag floor opens into a useful utility area with an oak block work surface, a large Belfast style sink and plumbing for a washing machine. There is a well appointed wet room with stone flag floor, fully tiled walls, pedestal basin, low W.C., glazed shower screen and chrome ladder style electric towel rail. The utility area opens into a fantastic open plan kitchen/dining/family room with exposed rustic wide timber floor boards, beams to the ceiling and a staircase leading up to the first floor. At one end is the kitchen area with an electric Esse range style cooker in royal blue and a fitted kitchen unit in olive green with Belfast style sink and drainer, wood block surface and base cupboards.
There is a central dining area and a cosy living area at the far end and a cosy living area with multi fuel stove set on a stone hearth.
The first floor central landing gives way to four bedrooms of varying size and a well appointed house bathroom with painted boarding to half height, free standing bath, low W.C., pedestal wash basin and chrome towel rail incorporating a radiator.
The house has a charming walled cottage style garden to two sides with a stone flag path leading from the gate to the front door and stone flagged patio area beyond. There are attractive gravel seating areas and terraces punctuated by well stacked flower beds and a lawn, also bordered by flower beds.
