Full DetailsFULL DESCRIPTION A detached Pennine Farmhouse that was created many years ago by combining two cottages into one large stone-built family home. The property comes with sizeable gardens, a range of outbuildings, 2 fields and an area of land on which there is an equestrian arena, all amounting to just over 3 acres. It occupies a good position along this semi-rural road and takes in some fabulous views from its great vantage point. The accommodation briefly comprises a large reception hall with access to a w.c., substantial dining kitchen with storm porch over the side entrance, large sitting room, 4 bedrooms, bathroom and shower room. We know the price seems rather cheap, but sadly, Holme Farm has suffered some fire and water damage caused by the extinguishing of a fire that took hold in the adjoining garage. Therefore, we are now looking for a new owner who is willing to take on the significant project of transforming it back into a wonderful and enviable family home in this fabulous location.
GROUND FLOOR LEVEL A pair of entrance doors to the front of the property give entry into:-
RECEPTION HALL 18' 9" x 13' 0" (5.72m x 3.96m) A room in its own right is this spacious hall which has windows and views to the front, a pair of doors leading through into the sitting room, and access to a storage cupboard.

An external door takes your out to the side of the property through the useful storm porch.

OUTSIDE A gate opens to a long sweeping driveway where you will find at the top of the drive a 5-bar gate giving access to the top paddock and then on the left, entry into the equestrian arena. The driveway opens out at the top to ample parking at the front of the house where you will also see gates giving access to the side and rear of the house. Immediately to the side and rear there is a sizeable block paved area enclosed by a stone wall where you will also find a range of sheds, outbuildings and stables that adjoin the rear of the remains of the fire damaged garage at the other side of the house. There is access up to a large lawned garden area with mature trees, what remains of a stone outhouse. As well as the 2 main fields and arena, there is a further paddock to the top left-hand side of the house where there is and old disused chicken run and shed. The whole amounts to just over 3 acres.
