About this property

  • Introduction
    The sale of Wyndy Ridge offers an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase a residential small holding in an accessible yet rural position, with southerly views to the edge of the North York Moors National Park. At the centre there is a spacious four bedroom bungalow which requires some updating but offers enormous potential, set within 19 acres of paddocks, grassland and young mixed woodland. A particular feature of the property is the range of buildings which sit on the hillside above the bungalow and which now have the benefit of consent for change of use to a spacious dwelling with outstanding views. Alternatively the purchaser may wish to continue the existing use of the buildings.

    Whilst the property as a whole extends to 19.23 acres there is
    potential to sell the paddock extending to 6.58 acres and the 4.68 acre woodland south of the road separately. In our opinion it is a combination of the accessible and sought after location as well as the scale and position of the bungalow, together with the options for use of the buildings, which makes Wyndy Ridge such a rare property likely to be of interest to buyers with livestock, equestrian, amenity or development interests, as well as those seeking a property capable of accommodating two families.

    Location and Situation
    Wyndy Ridge lies in a private yet accessible location to the east of the villages of Ingleby Cross and Ingleby Arncliffe, home to a public house and awarding winning village shop, and almost midway between the market towns of Northallerton and Stokesley. The A172 trunk road passes the southern boundary of the property providing excellent road links to the A19, Teesside and the coast whilst there is a main East Coast railway station at Northallerton approximately 9 miles away. The North York Moors National Park lies just to the south and the villages benefit from a pub and award winning village shop.

    A well proportioned bungalow with accommodation extending to approximately 1,568 sq ft lies in an elevated position set back from the road and approached through private gates. The property which is of brick construction under a tiled roof currently includes four bedrooms which could be reconfigured to suit a purchaser's requirements. Whilst the property requires some modernisation and upgrading it offers potential to create a lovely family home. The accommodation is shown on the floorplan attached and currently includes: rear entrance porch leading to a kitchen with fully fitted range of floor and wall units. The central hallway provides access to two double bedrooms and a house bathroom as well as the front entrance hall most recently used as an office. A particular feature of the property is the full width sitting room with dining area beyond which are two further bedrooms, a shower room and the conservatory. The attic is of generous proportions and offers further scope to extend the accommodation, subject to consents.

    There is a small enclosed garden to the front with a larger mainly lawned terraced garden to the rear comprising lawns and a garden shed.

    The entrance drive leads past the bungalow to the building which occupies a prominent elevated position with a large surfaced parking and turning area in front. The buildings themselves comprise a steel portal framed shed, 17.84m x 8.73m, with concrete block walls, cladding above, a fibre cement roof and concrete floor. The permitted use for this building as light industrial was confirmed as part of a Certificate of Lawfulness application 22/02196/CLE on the 25th of November 2022.

    Attached to the west side is a livestock shed, 19m x 9m, again of block construction with cladding over and a largely mono-pitch roof. For a purchaser with equestrian or livestock interests these buildings are ideal for adaptation to suit individual requirements. Others may be interested in the light industrial use of part of the site and others may wish to take advantage of the rare development opportunity provided by the recent planning decision for residential use of part.

    North Yorkshire Council on 16th May 2023 (Decision number 23/00655/IAN ) confirmed change of use of the light industrial building from use Class E to a dwelling house use Class C3. The proposal was to convert the light industrial building to form a ground floor extending to 155.3 sq m with a first floor mezzanine area extending to 78.55 sq m bringing the total internal area of the dwelling house to 233.85 sq m (2517 sq ft ). The plan included a large dining kitchen plus a snug/office, sitting room, WC, utility and hallway on the ground floor together with the principal bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a second bedroom and house bathroom on the first floor. There is also the possibility to reconfigure this plan to suit a purchaser's taste, subject to consents. The adjoining barn would be demolished. This is an exciting and rare development opportunity to create a contemporary house in a prime position to take advantage of the views. Further details available upon request.

    The property in total extends to approximately 19.23 acres and this includes a well positioned south facing paddock adjoining the house and buildings of 6.98 acres, including a small copse at the top. South of the road is another good field providing a further 6.85 acres of grazing adjacent to which lies the woodland. Stocked with a wide range of mainly broadleaved trees and shrubs the 4.86 acres of now well established woodland adds to the amenity, conservation and nature interests of the property.
