This attractive Grade II Listed farmstead forms part of Greenhead Farm comprising half of the original farmhouse and the whole of the adjoining substantial stone barn. To the rear of the stone barn is an extensive range of timber frame buildings.
Surrounding the farmstead to three sides is a productive parcel of meadow in five separate enclosures extending in total to approximately 10.80 acres, being available for sale separately.
The house is currently entered via a hall leading through to a small kitchen area beyond which stone steps lead down to a cellar with stone pillar and banks. Off the hall to the side is a generous dining room with open fire in a tiled surround, beam and boarded ceiling and built in cupboards. Separate W.C. Beyond the dining room is a good sized living room with open fire in tiled surround. An inner hall has stairs leading to the first floor via a half landing and an under stairs store. To the rear of the house is a utility room with tiled floor and gas fired 'Vokera' boiler.
On the first floor the central landing gives way to three bedrooms, two of which have feature fireplaces. There is also a house bathroom with tiled walls, a panelled bath and shower over, pedestal basin and W.C.
Outside the property has a pleasant walled garden to the front with a lawn bordered by well stocked flower beds. Opposite the front garden over the drive is a further walled garden area being a former orchard and vegetable plot. To the rear of the house is a further garden area to be fenced off from the field.
Adjoining the farmhouse to the north east is a most attractive traditional stone barn (14.00m x 8.50m) with an additional store to the end (8.78m x 3.50m average). The main barn retains the original arched main opening with feature semi-circular openings at first floor level.
Full planning permission and Listed Building Consent have been approved by Bradford Metropolitan Council allowing the refurbishment of the house and its extension into part of the adjoining barn and the conversion of the remainder of the barn to form a separate dwelling. Planning Application No.: 19/05104/FUL dated 04 February 2020. Listed Building Application No.: 19/05105/LBC dated 04 February 2020.
A copy of the approved plans and decision notices are available from the agents in an electronic format. There will be a charge for hard copies.
The approved scheme allows for the existing farmhouse to be extended into part of the barn with the new layout combining the existing dining room and living room to create an open plan kitchen dining room and a new living room created within the barn extension.
The proposed first floor would see the existing bathroom become an en-suite to Bedroom 1 and Bedroom 3 becoming the house bathroom and landing leading through to two new bedrooms within the first floor of the barn.
The layout for the separate dwelling to be created from the remainder of the barn will have an entrance hall open to a kitchen with a door leading through to a full height open plan family living/dining room. There is a separate utility room and W.C. Stairs lead up to a central landing off which are three bedrooms and a house bathroom.
To the rear of the barn is an extensive range of timber pole frame farm buildings with corrugated sheet roofs. The buildings and covered yard area are to be removed as part of the approved planning permission and replaced with a garage block to serve the house and the new dwelling to be created from the stone barn.
As previously mentioned, the modern steel portal frame farm building does not form part of this sale but is available to purchase as a separate lot, benefitting from prior approval under permitted development for conversion to form two separate dwellings with integral garaging. Full details are available on request.
1. A right of way will be reserved over the access drive from Cockin Lane in favour of the separate farm building and any retained land.
2. The purchasers will be granted rights over any retained land to enable the implementation of the approved scheme i.e removal of redundant buildings and landscaping.
