Lower Hey Farm occupies a remarkable location, one which truly must be viewed to be fully appreciated. Over a long tarmacadam driveway Lower Hey Farm and its immediate neighbour occupy a terrific location set back from the hustle and bustle of Meltham itself. With four acres of fields to the front, plus additional small paddock areas, we estimate that Lower Hey Farm has including the land it's standing upon in itself as a home, approaching 4.5 acres.


These which are located as previously mentioned to the front are to be found in two sections (see plan). The largest of which as indicated measures 3.16 acres and the other triangular section measures 0.84 acres. These fields set the scene for the rural location and aspect.

Orchard And Gardens

The driveway passes through a lawned garden/orchard area. This has been maintained and presented to a high standard for many years. It has sturdy timber fencing and gives a terrific view across Meltham and the rural scene beyond. Above this is a delightful garden area. This is enclosed by a combination of shrubbery and trees and makes a pleasant evening dining area of stone flags. The garden has a variety of trees and must once again be fully viewed to be appreciated. The home has other shrub garden areas before it and a substantial stone flagged patio/sitting out area. There are also small lawned areas which will be explained upon viewing.


The single garage has an up and over door, and has a useful store to the rear.


The farm is served by a good sized sturdily constructed farm building. This has internal measurements of 30'0 x 24'0 approx and has a broad double garage up and over door. There are four windows and a lofty ceiling height. The barn is accompanied by further outbuildings. These include two stables which adjoin the property's garage have been used as stables for many years and are of sturdy construction. They are served by a separate courtyard area. This which has been to lawn for some time offers a great deal of flexibility and is contained by high stone walling to the rear and timber fencing to the front and adjoins the barn area. There is a small enclosure/paddock to the rear of the barn which extends to the property's full boundary. This is contained by stone walling and is a most useful turn out paddock.

Outbuilding And Paddock

Adjacent to the barn there is a further outbuilding. This has been used for many years as a third stable. It is currently sub-divided and used for housing rabbits and the like. It adjoins a further paddock. This which is accessed via a steel farm style gate once again is currently grassed and is bounded by walling to two sides and timber post-and-rail fencing to the other. There are two mature trees within this area and it adjoins and has a gateway to the previously mentioned paddock.

Please Note

The property has over the years been honed to a style that might be considered unusual, that is that bedroom 3 and the bathroom are located above some accommodation belonging to the next door neighbour's property and the garage belonging to Lower Hey Farm is located beneath some of the accommodation belonging to the neighbouring property. These are indicated by points number 1 and 2 on the land registry plan, a copy of which is enclosed in these sales details.


The property is to be sold with an uplift covenant on fields number 7041 and 6441. This four acre block is to have a covenant upon it which clearly states that if the property achieves planning permission for development (residential or commercial) that the vendors and their successors are entitled to a 25% uplift figure of the land's then value. This does not restrict in terms of agricultural building to serve Lower Hey Farm.
