About this property

  • Woodlands Farm lies within an accessible yet largely private position only ¼ mile north of the A684 outside the village of Harmby, 1.5 miles east of Leyburn. The property is well placed for access to the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the magnificent local countryside as well as Bedale 10 miles to the east and the A1 at Leeming Bar 12 miles away.

    The property which lies within a ring fence is approached via a tree lined driveway including some specimen trees including cedar and a magnificent mature beech which lead to the attractive traditional stone built farmhouse which requires modernisation. Beyond the farmhouse is an excellent stable block and the farm buildings which provide livestock, machinery and general purpose storage together with a large traditional stone barn which has potential for alternative uses subject to gaining planning consent.

    The land which is mainly level is divided into a number of paddocks and meadows and benefits from separate access points off the council highway to both the east and west sides of the farm enhancing flexibility.

    This sale represents a rare opportunity to purchase a small farm likely to be of interest to buyers with residential, equestrian, livestock, development or leisure interests.

    The House
    A detached south facing stone built house under a concrete tile roof situated away from the farm buildings. The original three bedroom farmhouse requires modernisation although it does benefit from a ground floor extension built about 15 years ago. The windows to the south side of the house are double glazed UPVC construction and the house is believed to have been partially rewired when the extension was put on. In all the property extends to about 1,629 sqft.

    Ground floor accommodation includes kitchen with Aga cooker, dining room with beamed ceiling, sitting room, staircase hall, larder, store, wet room and garden room. On the first floor there is the house bathroom, 2 double bedrooms and a single bedroom.

    13 acres (5.29 ha) of Eligible Land on the Rural Land Register comprising two larger meadows at the eastern end of the farm together with three smaller paddocks around the house and buildings. The land is generally level and all down to permanent grass with the majority being meadow suitable for mowing.
