TRADITIONAL FARMHOUSE WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS, EXTENSIVE OUTBUILDINGS WITH CONSENT FOR CONVERSION, GRASSLAND AND WOODLAND, 5.1 ACRES IN ALL
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.
Traditional buildings and planning consent
There is an extensive range of traditional farm buildings attached to the farmhouse, these benefit from planning consent for a change of use from outbuildings to holiday accommodation (Planning reference - NYM/2019/0846/FL). The current plans as drawn would give two annexes. Annexe 1 being a single storey holiday cottage with open plan living area, two bedrooms and bathroom. Annexe 2 would comprise of an open plan living/kitchen area with bedroom and bathroom. Notwithstanding the planning consent, the buildings would also make an excellent incorporation into the main farmhouse to create an extensive dwelling or alternatively could be used to provide living accommodation for another family member utilising the annexe arrangements currently drawn.
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.
The land surrounds the property, but is most extensive to the south and comprises of about 5.1 acres in all. This includes two small grass paddocks surrounded by traditional stone walls, there is additional open space and various areas of woodland and bank sides as the land falls away towards the valley. The land is ideal for low key hobby farming, amenity or equine uses, which could be run in connection with the property or any leisure use developed thereof. This adds an extra dimension to the amenity and enjoyment for the property (subject to the necessary consents).
