This grade II listed Pennine farmstead enjoys a stunning elevated location and enjoys some of the finest views in the Holme Valley. It is made up of 2 separate cottages with an attached barn and partially converted holiday cottage with adjoining gardens, parking and land amounting to approximately 9 acres in total. The property will be offered for sale as a whole or in two separate lots.
Full DetailsABOUT MEAL HILL FARM Meal Hill Farm comprises of two traditional stone built cottages under a pitched stone slate roof with an attached stone barn. The property is originally believed to date back to the early 19th century and largely retains its original format from the front. There are single storey extensions to the rear of the cottages and part of the stone barn has been partially converted into a holiday cottage. The property is grade II listed.
It enjoys a quite spectacular rural setting above the much admired village of Holme which sits within the Peak District National Park. Holmfirth can be found approximately 3 miles away and the property enjoys panoramic views towards Holmfirth in one direction and Holme Moss in the other. It is the final property on Meal Hill Road after passing the beautiful cottages and village School lower down the lane. Whilst the setting is rural the village does benefit from a good bus service and a renowned village pub and restaurant (The Fleece) which also has a shop attached selling basic essentials.
The property was jointly purchased by two separate families in 2004 who carried out extensive renovations to both the cottages and barn creating the impressive property that is here today. The property is offered for sale either as a whole package or divided as follows:
2 Meal Hill Farm features an entrance hall, living / dining room with open plan kitchen, separate lounge, utility and cloakroom / wc downstairs. Upstairs there is a landing, 3 bedrooms, bathroom and en-suite. This comes complete with generous parking gardens and land (totalling approximately 5.2 acres).
1 Meal Hill Farm is offered separately and offers similarly sized accommodation which is arranged slightly differently having an entrance hall, living / dining room, lounge, kitchen, cloakroom wc, landing, 2 double bedrooms, bathroom and en-suite. The master bedroom being of a particularly good size. Attached to the side of the cottage is the stone barn which has partially been converted into holiday cottage. It again features generous parking, gardens and adjoining land (totalling approximately 3.88 acres).
Both properties have been extensively renovated and maintained to a high standard, retaining the feel of traditional farm cottages with exposed beams, stone fireplaces, mullioned windows and stone flagged floors. They are enhanced with quality fixtures and fittings and have oil fired central heating systems with underfloor heating to the ground floor. The windows are wooden and single glazed in keeping with the listed status.
We feel that the property could appeal as a whole to a buyer looking to make a lifestyle purchase with the potential to create a supplementary income from the holiday cottage or possibly two families looking to live next to one another.
