JONES BARN AND COTTAGE This is an outstanding opportunity to purchase a traditional stone built cottage with attached barn and approximately 3.5 acres of agricultural land. The property is grade II listed and situated within a small cluster of historic farm cottages and buildings at the foot of a long narrow lane. The cottage retains many original features but is in need of modernisation and comprises: lounge, dining kitchen, landing, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and an attic with further potential. The adjoining barn features wonderful internal pointed stone arches supporting the structure and offers excellent potential to convert subject to the necessary consents being obtained.

ACCOMMODATION The cottage comprises the following:

GROUND FLOOR

LOUNGE 14' 10" x 13' 4" (4.52m x 4.06m) With front entrance door, windows to the front and side, chimney breast with stone fireplace and exposed stonework to one wall.

DINING KITCHEN 15' x 13' 4" (4.57m x 4.06m) The kitchen features a range of fitted units, now in a dilapidated state, sink unit, rear entrance door and windows to the side and rear. One of the windows features a carved datestone of 1749. Stairs lead up to the first floor landing.

FIRST FLOOR

LANDING With access to the loft space via a retractable ladder.

BEDROOM 1 14' 9" x 13' 4" (4.5m x 4.06m) A large double bedroom with window to the side and exposed stonework to one wall.

BEDROOM 2 10' x 8' 11" (3.05m x 2.72m) With window to the side and exposed stonework to one wall.

BATHROOM 6' 10" x 5' 9" (2.08m x 1.75m) With three piece suite in white comprising low flush wc, pedestal washbasin and bath.

SECOND FLOOR

ATTIC 13' 4" x 12 (22' overall)' (4.06m x 3.66m) A large attic space with window to the side offering further potential for renovation.

BARN 38' 3" x 31' 8 overall" (11.66m x 9.65m) The barn is open to the eaves and divided into 3 bays by two dressed stone pointed arches. A further arch, forming the dividing wall with the cottage is filled in. There are arched cart openings to the front and rear and further window openings to the side and rear.

OUTSIDE To the side and rear of the barn there is a yard with potential for use as garden and parking - this is currently grassed over. Beyond this is a paddock of grazing land which we understand amounts to approximately 3.5 acres.

SERVICES We understand that the cottage is connected to mains electricity. Water is provided from a borehole and drainage is to a septic tank. We understand that the water and drainage are shared with other properties within the hamlet and it may be necessary that the new owners install updated systems to meet the needs of a larger family.

VIEWING By appointment with Wm Sykes & Son.


LOCATION Head out of Todmorden on the A646 Halifax Road as if heading towards Hebden Bridge. Pass the Shell filling station and then take the second left onto Cross Stone Road. Continue up here (ignoring sat nav which will advise you to turn onto Carr House Lane). This winding road will eventually plateau and continues passing Cross Stone Church and out into open countryside. After approximately a further half of a mile you find an unmade track on the right called Matthew Lane. This becomes Baulk Head Lane and eventually leads to the property.

PLEASE NOTE The lane becomes very narrow between the property and neighbouring houses and we would recommend that viewers find a suitable place to park before reaching this point. We suggest parking within field on the corner of the lane - the gateway here is left open.
