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 Farmhouse
A substantial detached farmhouse which occupies a stunning rural setting within a courtyard of traditional stone buildings which have planning permission for conversion. The Farmhouse is offered for sale as an individual lot and requires comprehensive modernisation to return it to more habitable condition. We anticipate that it offers the scope to create a 5 bedroom dwelling with 3 downstairs reception rooms and a dining kitchen. The space currently occupied includes a dining kitchen, lounge, 2 double bedrooms and bathrooms but there are areas at either side of the house which offer further scope to expand upon this. An area of field to the side and rear of the property will be included within the sale.

The property currently comprises:


Entrance Porch 4.01m x 1.93m
A large entrance porch / utility with door to the side, window to the front and plumbing for washing machine.

With stairs to the first floor.

Room 1 5.44m x 3.6m
Currently unoccupied and offering the scope to become a good sized reception room.

Dining Kitchen 5.72m x 4.55m
A large dining kitchen with windows to the rear enjoying the views. With basic fitted units, stainless steel sink and Rayburn stove.

Lounge 4.6m x 4.47m overall
With windows to the rear and beams to the ceiling.

An L-shaped passageway / store area which leads to Room 2.

Room 2 5.97m x 3.76m
This space is again unconverted / occupied. It is open to double height up to the roof trusses and offers the scope to create another reception room downstairs and a principal bedroom suite upstairs (subject to the necessary consents).

Also off the lounge is a further lobby area with stairs to the first floor and a door into the downstairs bathroom.

Bathroom 4.65m x 1.93m (1.5m min)
A large bathroom positioned at the front of the house next door to the entrance / utility. With low flush wc, washbasin and bath with shower over.


Landing Area
This section of the property is accessed from the second staircase as described above. It provides access to the two bedrooms which are currently occupied. A passageway between these bedrooms leads to the potential access into Room 2 (described above) which could create a further bedroom.

Bedroom 1 3.84m x 2.44m
With window to the front.

Bedroom 2 5.87m x 2.44m
With windows to the rear.

Landing Area 5.6m x 1.07m
The remaining upstairs accommodation which is not currently in use is accessed via stairs from the lobby after the entrance hall. It currently features a large unused passageway which could be used to connect it to the other section of the house.

Bedroom 3 4.62m x 3.68m (5.6m max)
A large double bedroom with windows to the rear and recessed area with built in wardrobe.

Bedroom 4 3.63m x 3.56m
With window to the rear. Offering the scope to create another bedroom.

Potential Bathroom 3.63m x 1.8m
With window to the front. Offering the scope to be another bedroom or more likely an upstairs bathroom.

A section of the adjacent field to the side and rear of the property is included within the sale. See attached plan for details. The total site area extends to 0.22 acres.

The farmhouse is currently connected to spring water and has drainage to a septic tank. It is connected to mains electricity.

Site Plan
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.
