Belsey Gate Farmhouse is a remarkable detached, Grade II Listed home set on the edge of Soulby, a pretty village in the Eden Valley. The property sits in a prominent position overlooking open fields. The village has an active community with a village hall, children’s play park and walks in all directions.
The market town of Kirkby Stephen is just 2 miles away, where there is a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, and is also on the scenic Settle to Carlisle railway line. The location is within easy reach by road or rail of The Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Lake District, with the M6 and A66 being a short drive away.
Belsey Gate Farmhouse is a traditional farmhouse which has been extended and now offers flexible living accommodation which could easily provide annexe accommodation if required.
On the ground floor is a lovely entrance hall, with turned staircase, which leads to two front reception rooms, both with original features expected in such a period property and multi fuel stoves. To the rear is a lovely farmhouse style dining kitchen and traditional pantry. Upstairs are three good sized bedrooms, the master having an en suite shower room and a single bedroom at the front.
The extension to rear of the property is all at ground floor level. This creates additional living accommodation, including a double bedroom, bathroom and a light, airy sitting room with bi-fold doors leading to a south facing garden room. There is a spiral staircase leading to a music room/gym.
The property has been kept in good order by the current vendors for the past 27 years, they have maintained it well replacing the roof, fully insulating and damp proofing to all exterior walls and installing secondary glazed windows to the front of the house and sealed double glazed units everywhere else. There is a feature wall of hanging slates to the West, this has been re hung in 2006. The property benefits from having a biomass boiler and solar panels.
Externally, the farmhouse sits in grounds totalling approx. 3/4 acre. The property is approached via a private cattle grid with the drive providing ample parking for several vehicles. The front garden is enclosed by wrought iron railings with outstanding views over open fields to the front. There is a large timber workshop with electricity and space to build a garage if required (subject to planning permissions). Access to the orchard is gained from the paddock to the side. The rear garden is south facing, with lawn and vegetable plots.
Belsey Gate Farmhouse is an ideal family or active retirement home in a quiet, edge of village location.
