A stunning Grade II listed period stone house with two bedroom annex, set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales
Dating back to 1653, Holme Farm is an impressive detached stone house occupying an elevated position in the middle of the ancient village of Lofthouse, itself situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB).
Believed to have originally served Fountains Abbey, the property has been Grade II listed on account of its architectural significance as is filled with original features, including beautiful oak beams throughout, mullioned stone windows and Yorkshire stone flooring making it a warm and inviting family home set in just under an acre of grounds. The property has the attractive benefit of a single storey, two bedroom annex, ideal for mutli-generational living or a holiday let.
The main accommodation is entered through an entrance porch which leads to a spacious dining room with log burner and French doors opening onto the rear garden. Just off the dining room is the kitchen which features granite work tops and an electric Aga. Adjacent to the kitchen is a separate utility room with WC.
The main sitting room stretches to an incredible 32 foot, with triple aspect windows. A versatile space allowing plenty of room for entertaining as well as cosy nights in around one of the two opposing wood burning stoves.
Stairs lead up to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms and two house bathrooms. The Principal bedroom notably has two large fitted wardrobes.
A further staircase takes you to the loft space which provides a further 32 foot of storage/work space with several Velux windows and a small multi-paned window overlooking the village.
The Cowshed has been sympathetically converted into a pretty cottage with a sizeable open plan kitchen-dining-living room with log burner and French doors to a separate garden area. There are two bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms.
The property also includes a number of outbuildings including a workshop with wood burning stove and separate garage / carport providing covered parking for three cars or storage space for gardening equipment.
The garden and grounds extend to just under an acre, divided into 3 areas, the upper lawn with York stone patio skirting the main house and several beds retained by yew hedging, a vegetable garden and terraced garden leading down to the paddock which is dotted with specimen trees, bordered by the River Nidd. Each of the areas provide contrasting views of the beautiful undulating countryside as far as the eye can see.
