    About this property

    • Situated in a private elevated position, this impeccable property boasts an impressive combination of contemporary living and period charm. South View Farm sits on a plot of around 20 acres, encompassed by its own land, with a separate two bedroom cottage, studio barn and range of stone outbuildings.

      The main accommodation has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment and extension under the stewardship of the current owners, finished with the highest quality fixtures and fittings. The property benefits from impressive eco-credentials including solar panels, three air-source heat pumps and double glazing throughout. Impressive technology features include Lutron lighting, CAT-5 cabling and high-speed fiber internet.

      Arranged over two floors the living accommodation extends to arounds 5,500 square foot. The ground floor has been thoughtfully designed and re-configured to create a spacious kitchen-breakfast room and three generous reception rooms, filled with natural light, all with stunning views.

      The hand-crafted kitchen has been designed by Stephen Neall of Harrogate, with bespoke wooden units, leathered granite worktops and a range of Miele and Gaggenau appliances and Wollf fridge and freezer drawers. There is a central island unit with breakfast bar providing space for casual dining and a corner bench and room for a breakfast table. French doors open to the patio and give views over the garden. Just off from the kitchen is a useful utility room.

      Continuing through the ground floor is the drawing room which opens to the beautiful orangery by Oak by Design, a particularly wonderful room with far-reaching countryside views. The orangery is fitted with Lutron lighting, remote control blinds and climate control.

      The dining room-sitting room is the perfect place for entertaining guests, with a glass fronted glass 'Dru' LPG gas fire and French doors opening to a patio space. The patio space has an electric awning, ideal for Al-Fresco dining and parties.

      A bespoke oak and glass staircase leads to the first floor with four double bedrooms and three bathrooms (two of which have climate control and are en suite). All of the bedrooms benefit from built-in wardrobes and impressive views.

      Across the driveway sits an attractive stone barn, currently divided into a two bedroom cottage and studio/ office space. The cottage is ideal for guest accommodation, staff or dependent family members with a large sitting room, kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

      Externally the property sits behind a large gravelled driveway providing parking for several cars leading to a paved parking area in front of the barn and garage.

      The garden has been thoughtfully designed with a Yorkshire stone patio extending across the back of the house flanked by well-stocked raised beds, opening to an expansive lawn.

      The grass land primarily sits to the south and west perimeters of the property.
