Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Enjoying a splendid rural setting commanding some excellent views, this attractive detached farmhouse recently tastefully converted from an old detached barn, provides a rare opportunity locally to acquire a home in the country set in over 3.3 hectares (8.17 acres) of land, ideal for those with equestrian interests or seeking a smallholding. An additional adjoining block of land of circa 16.2 hectares (40 acres), including a stone built barn, may also be available by separate negotiation.

Leyfield Farm enjoys a splendid setting on the south facing slopes of the mid Wharfedale valley some 3 miles to the north west of Ilkley, close to Beamsley Beacon and the Yorkshire Dales National Park boundary. Converted from an old stone built detached barn, the farmhouse commands some splendid views over the surrounding countryside and is set amidst delightful attractively landscaped grounds. Whilst enjoying the benefits of a tranquil rural setting, Leyfield Farm remains only circa 10 minutes drive from fashionable Ilkley and its very wide range of shops and general amenities. Langbar itself is a scattered rural hamlet of farmsteads nestling under the slopes of Beamsley Beacon. A post office, primary school and some local amenities are available at nearby Bolton Abbey whilst the town of Ilkley provides a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and general amenities, as well as a wide range of sporting and recreational facilities and cultural events. For the commuter, there are regular rail services available to Leeds / Bradford city centres from Ilkley railway station and Leeds / Bradford International Airport is only circa 15 miles away. There are some excellent walks to be enjoyed through the surrounding countryside and there is a network of bridleways close by. Leyfield Farm is situated very close to the Yorkshire Dales National Park boundary and the Duke of Devonshire's Bolton Abbey Estate, widely regarded as one of the jewels of Yorkshire.
