About this property

  • Lease Rigg Farm is a superb detached property with an extensive range of outbuildings in a linier arrangement attached to the property. The setting of the house, elevated on the ridge between the Murk Esk and Esk Valleys gives the most wonderful views across open fields beyond towards the Moors.

    Built in sandstone under a pantile roof, the property has been extended over the years. Internally the accommodation requires refurbishment and improvement, but many period and traditional features could be renovated to suit a purchasers taste. In all, the internal accommodation currently extends to about 2,215 sq ft. Ground floor accommodation includes; entrance hall, kitchen with traditional range, utility, pantry, boot room and sitting room. First floor includes three double bedrooms and a family bathroom with WC and wash basin.

    The property is bound by a single track public highway which links through to the main Egton to Grosmont road via a pretty ford through the River Esk. The road also leads back towards Egton Bridge and Goathland in the opposite direction. A small garden encompasses the immediate north of the property between the farmhouse and lane, to the south and west there is a small courtyard area and large parking area sheltered and screened from the road by trees. Beyond the courtyard on the southern boundary is a small grass paddock beyond which there is a wooded/scrub bank falling away towards the Murk Esk Valley.

    There is obvious potential at the property for leisure and holiday development in what is such a beautiful setting in the heart of the North York Moors National Park.
