Brownhill Lane, Holmbridge, Holmfirth


3 bed Farmhouse & Barn, Holmfirth

This double fronted farmhouse with attached barn occupies an enviable rural location alongside Brownhill Reservoir with stunning views towards Holme Moss at the rear. It is sold complete with approximately 15.46 acres of land which includes the curtilage around the property and extensive grazing land. Whilst the house has undergone a scheme of modernisation by the present owners we feel that there is much further potential to convert the barn subject to the appropriate consents.
