DESCRIPTION High House is a detached period property set in the rural location of Snaizeholme. Snaizeholme is just 3 miles from Hawes in Upper Wensleydale and is the perfect location for those seeking peace & tranquillity. The area is renowned for the successful reintroduction of red squirrels which have now almost become part of the household along with the birds and deer.
High House was originally two properties, dating back to the late 17th century, now one. The property was renovated 30 years ago and is now in need of refurbishment. The accommodation is spacious with high ceilings throughout. The property boasts a wealth of original features including stone flag floors, mullion windows, fireplaces and an original bread oven in the kitchen. On the ground floor are two large reception rooms, the sitting room having a multi fuel stove and the dining room which is open to the kitchen where there is an oil fuelled Rayburn. There is a ground floor bathroom which was originally the pantry, the stone cheese shelves are still in situ as well as a cellar. Upstairs are three bedrooms, one of which has a mezzanine, an ideal kids play area and a house bathroom.
The property is in need of modernisation. Works would include damp treatment, a new kitchen, new bathrooms and re-wiring, all of which would be beneficial in order to bring the property back to the standard it deserves.
Attached to the property is a byre, this is currently used for storage. There is power, water, electric and window openings in place should any one wish to convert in to secondary accommodation (subject to necessary planning permissions). Adjascent to the property is a detached Grade II Listed barn, this dates back to 1683 when it was a dwelling. This would be an ideal annexe or holiday let if required. Planning advice should be taken to revert back to a dwelling.
Externally to the side there are two stone built stores, one of which is a former pig sty, as well as an ample sized paddock ideal for hens, pigs or sheep. The garden is enclosed by a dry stone wall and this space could be landscaped to create more formal gardens. The panoramic views from the house are stunning with an open outlook over the Widdale Valley. The property is accessed via a very well maintained track offset from the main road. The location is rural yet accessible.
High Houses is an ideal family home or investment property with fantastic potential.
