DESCRIPTION Ashes Farm is a newly renovated farmhouse dating back to the 1600’s. It offers modern living whilst still retaining original features and character. The property offers the whole country life package, with ample living space, outbuildings with possible development and land.
On the Three Peaks route, Ashes Farm is 1 mile from the train station at Ribblehead (Leeds to Carlisle line), 12 miles from Settle and Hawes and 6 miles to Ingleton. A perfect hideaway, secluded with no immediate neighbours, but not isolated. Date stone of 1660, a 6 bed, 6 bath farm house with 3.1 acres of land including woodland, mature gardens and pasture, double garage, stable and 8 other outbuildings.
The current owner has made substantial investment to modernise the house, including a £30k kitchen, five new en-suite bathrooms, limestone flags, new Brintons carpets, new decoration: F&B paint, Cole & Son wallpaper, new electrics, plumbing and new radiators. The roof has been maintained and is in good order. Water is from a bore hole with a new UV filter, the sewerage system is a septic tank. There is a large, insulated, lit and undeveloped loft space with two sky lights which could, subject to planning permission be developed into more rooms. Ideal for a hobbyist smallholder, running a business from home or potential for running as a B&B; subject to planning permission, potential uses could include converting the barn and hayloft into an annexe to the house, business space or even a pool and gym.
Internal viewing highly recommended to appreciate the quality on offer.
