About this property

  • Situated in a most picturesque setting in the Yorkshire Dales on the edge of the National Park, West Grange is a truly outstanding conversion of period stone barns, incorporating a recently constructed guest cottage to the rear, all surrounded by gardens and grounds extending to around five acres.

    Sitting on the periphery of the hamlet of Harmby, close to the market town of Leyburn, this superb property is in a private location in the heart of picturesque countryside, whilst being just over a mile from the extensive local amenities.

    The property has been meticulously renovated and sympathetically refurbished by its current owners, retaining the original character of the buildings and a number of their original period features, thoughtfully combined with quality modern fittings and luxuries creating a fabulous home in a wonderful setting.

    Open the door to West Grange and discover a stylish country home filled with beautifully crafted interior design and modern features throughout. At the heart of the property is large farmhouse kitchen, equipped with every appliance you could possibly need, including a large range cooker, along with a dishwasher, large double fridge freezer and wine fridge. The spacious dining area is open plan with the kitchen and offers space for a large table from which there are panoramic views of the garden and Wensleydale countryside beyond. Perfect for both informal dining and lavish meals.

    A practical family room is just off the kitchen down a short flight of steps and this opens into a generous sitting room with a log-burning stove at its heart and enormous floor-to-ceiling windows framing stunning views of the picturesque countryside from every angle.

    On the opposite side of the hallway is a cosy snug, with plenty of sofa space and from here step out to the garden terrace, complete with an alfresco dining area and fire pit. The entire ground floor has the benefit of under floor heating.

    There are five opulently designed bedrooms, three are on the ground floor and two upstairs, each with their own luxury en-suite bathrooms. One bedroom has access to a private courtyard garden with seating. A staircase leads to two first floor bedrooms, one with Juliet balcony providing exceptional views.

    Behind West Grange is a self contained timber clad guest/holiday cottage, finished to the same exacting standards. Providing one ensuite bedroom and a large open plan kitchen living area, this exceptional building has the potential to generate significant income or be the perfect base for visitors who would certainly appreciate the wonderful rural surroundings.

    The property has a well designed yet easy to maintain garden centering around a large pond, with terrace and lawned areas bordered by colorful beds, the beautiful Dales countryside providing a fabulous backdrop. A large agricultural barn stands back and to the side of West Court, providing ample storage space for garden machinery, cars and stabling if desired. The land comprises about seven acres of grazing paddocks enclosed by a mix of post and rail fencing and dry stone walls. It can be let, grazed or used for private purposes.

    There is parking on the gravel driveway for numerous cars.

    An additional block of grassland extending to around 5 acres is available by separate negotiation. This has the benefit of planning permission for three timber holiday lodges. More details available by request.

This is so much more than just a beautifully refurbished barn, it offers everything one could desire in a country home, some of the finest views of the Dales countryside I have seen from a property.
