Full DetailsFULL DESCRIPTION Clover Farm is a superb 6 bedroomed detached stone-built residence just recently constructed on the site of the former herdsman's building in the little-known hamlet of Scout, located high upon the hillside above Marsden adjoining National Trust moorland. This substantial family home comes with a sizeable stone flagged sun terrace lawned garden areas, planted borders, and a parking area within the immediate grounds of the house.

OUTSIDE The property is approached along a track that climbs up from the top of Woods Mount and proceeds along the hillside where you join National Trust land. Clover farm is the newly built property on the left of the main access track. There is another track that now runs of the left side of Clover Farm which is owned by the property and leads on up to the sizeable parking and turning area which could take 5 or 6 parked cars. Going back to the property itself, there is a parking bay and lawned garden area facing you as you approach the house and a flagged pathway leads along the side of the house passing the entrance door after which the flagged area become wider and then merges with the main paved sun terrace at the far end. This terrace is well protected by the boundary wall and upper garden level where you will find a lawned area with feature water fountain and planted borders. There is external lighting, power and water supplies.
Our vendors also own several acres of land and a variety of outbuildings beyond the top parking area which all or any part can be purchased by separate negotiation.

Also accessed from the top parking and turning area is 'Secrets', a detached stone bungalow sat high above Scout with probably some of the finest views to be had from any property. This bungalow is also owned by our vendor and will be placed on the market independently of Clover Farm.
