About this property

  • Lodge Hill Farm is a wonderful detached property with an extensive range of outbuildings in an open courtyard format surrounding the property. The setting of the house, elevated and overlooking the Egton Grange valley gives the most wonderful views across open fields beyond to the Moors.

    Built in sandstone under a slate roof, the property requires full refurbishment and improvement, but many period and traditionally features remain and could be renovated and incorporated to suit a purchasers taste. In all, the internal accommodation currently extends to about 1,700 sq ft, with a large attic room in addition.

    Ground floor accommodation includes; boot room, kitchen, study, living room and sitting room. First floor includes 3 double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom and a family bathroom. Attached to the house are the remains of an additional outbuilding.

    Outside: A small walled garden encompasses the immediate north and south of the property beyond which there is a large grass courtyard area around which the traditional farm buildings are arranged.

    Traditional buildings and planning consent: There is an extensive range of traditional farm buildings in two groups, these benefit from planning consent for a change of use from outbuildings to holiday accommodation (Planning reference - NYM/2020/0294/FL). The full planning consent is listed as restoration of farmhouse and change of use of adjoining building to provide an office and store for holiday rental business, plus change of use of barns and outbuildings to provide three holiday cottages comprising one 4 bedroom; one 3 bedroom and one 2 bedroom unit together with a one bedroom self-contained holiday apartment and two units of ramblers accommodation plus a games room. Notwithstanding the planning consent, the buildings could form part of some ancillary accommodation to the main farmhouse to create an extensive and unique private dwelling or alternatively could be used to provide living accommodation for another family member utilising the arrangements currently drawn, subject to the necessary consents.

    There is obvious potential at the property for leisure and holiday development in what is an outstanding rural setting in the heart of the North York Moors National Park.

    Land: The land surrounds the property and provides control of the immediate boundaries, which forms a croft style enclosure, this includes open grass areas with shrub and wooded areas to the north. The land is ideal for amenity use, such as a handful of livestock or pets to range over. This adds an extra dimension to the amenity and enjoyment of the property.
