Full description


A remarkable private residence with twenty acres of land, located on the edge of the picturesque Mallerstang Valley, with astonishing views.
The recently converted farmhouse is now a luxurious four bedroom home, each bedroom having ensuite facilities with walk-in shower and separate bath. A detached converted barn offering further living or business potential.
The property is encompassed by beautiful gardens, agricultural land, breathtaking views and well equipped working farm buildings, all making Hillside Farm an idyllic place to work and live.
The farm is approached along a gated driveway, leading to a large parking area with six integral garages, offering ample space for parking. Internally the farmhouse has been finished to a very high standard, while retaining original features and charm. Under-floor heating throughout the entire residence makes it a warm and comfortable home.
At the heart of the ground floor is a magnificent 30' dining kitchen, with bespoke solid oak kitchen units, high-end fitted appliances and granite worktops. The central breakfast bar and spacious dining area make this the ideal space to socialise, dine and entertain.
The dining area opens out onto the front sunroom and rear conservatory, offering spaces to relax and enjoy the sun throughout the day. Off the kitchen, the comfortable sitting room has a multi-fuel Aga stove and enjoys views of the front gardens.
A large formal entrance hall leads to an additional reception room with a feature marble fireplace, which currently serves as a music room. The ground floor is completed by a WC and practical utility and boot rooms, leading into an integral double garage.
A central stairwell leads to a large gallery landing to the first floor, currently used as a library space. A hallway leads to four generous double bedrooms, each having its own luxurious ensuite bathroom. All ensuites have a walk-in shower cubicle and separate bath, one being a Jacuzzi bath. The bedrooms all have fitted wardrobes, with the master having stylish bespoke glazed units. Additional hallway storage cupboards and loft offer ample storage space.
Adjacent to the farmhouse is a converted two-story barn, with integral garage, bathroom, sauna and large open plan room, intended as a gymnasium. This building would make an excellent holiday cottage or granny annex, subject to appropriate consents.

.. and Outside

The farmhouse is encompassed by good-sized gardens to the front and rear, with lawns, large stocked pond, seating terrace and vegetable garden.
A farm gate leads to the orchard and working farm buildings, including stables and an impressive 38m agricultural building. The 20.5 acres of land encompass the main farm site, with the historic Settle-Carlisle railway line creating a natural boundary. Uninterrupted breathtaking views of the Eden Valley and Mallerstang Valley can be enjoyed from the land, gardens and farmhouse.
Hillside Farm offers privacy and seclusion and is also well located just 3 miles from the Market Town of Kirkby Stephen, with schools, shops and amenities. The nearby M6 motorway, A66 and Settle-Carlisle line offer excellent transport links. Hillside farm is located in the hamlet of Wharton, which will become part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in July 2016.
