Moss Edge Farm, Moss Edge Lane, Holmbridge, Holmfirth, HD9 2SD


Moss Edge Farm enjoys a quite stunning elevated location offering unrivalled rural views over the upper part of the Holme Valley. This traditional hill farm has fallen into disrepair and our client has consent for redevelopment of the existing buildings whilst he plans to convert a further building as a home for his own occupation. We are offering 3 lots for sale together or separately as follows: Lot 1 – The Farmhouse – requiring comprehensive renovation and the potential to create a 5 bedroom home. Lot 2 – The West Barn – a stone built detached barn with consent to create a 4 bedroom detached house with adjoining paddock and stunning views. Lot 3 – The North Barn and Stables – a substantial stone built detached barn with consent for conversion to 2 large dwellings.

Property Details

The West Barn
A substantial stone built detached barn with consent for conversion to a single dwelling. The property sits on the edge of a traditional farm courtyard and enjoys unrivalled rural views towards Holme Moss. The approved plans show accommodation extending to approximately 242 sqm (2600 sqft) which comprises: lounge, dining kitchen, wc, utility, landing, 4 double bedrooms, bathroom and en-suite. It comes complete with a plot around the front side and rear and an additional adjoining paddock of land – the total site area extends to approximately 2.27 acres.

Planning Permission
A class Q “Prior notification for change of use from agricultural building to three dwellings with associated works” is approved under application number 2023/91342 by Kirklees Council. Full details can be found on the Kirklees planning website.

Site Plans
The above site plans show the proposed boundaries for each of the 3 lots.

The purchaser of each of the barns will need to commission their own private water supply via borehole and install their own sewage treatment plant. An electricity supply currently feeds the farmhouse and Lot 3. An upgrade of the supply will be required for additional properties.

Our client has recently upgraded the driveway up to the farm but we anticipate that it will require further works upon completion of the redevelopment works. A management company for the road and courtyard area will be put in place for repair, gritting etc when the properties become occupied.

Please Note
Due to the extensive works required to each of the properties, offers from cash purchasers will only be considered by our clients.

Additional Information
Tenure: Freehold. Energy rating for Lot One 1 (Band G). Council tax band D. Our online checks show that Superfast Fibre Broadband (Fibre to the Cabinet FTTC) is available at the address and could be installed and mobile coverage at the property is offered by several providers.

By appointment with Wm Sykes & Son.

From the centre of Holmfirth head along the A6024 Woodhead Road into the centre of Hinchliffe Mill. Turn left onto Co-op Lane (just after, and on the opposite side of the road from the village shop). Continue along this road and over the bridge as the road becomes Dobb Lane. Continue along passing the School where the road becomes Hollin Brigg Lane. At the sharp left hand bend in the road there is Moss Edge Lane on the right hand side. This passes a handful of houses then leads up a steep banking up to the farm.
