Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Lot 1: An historic three bedroom Grade II listed farmhouse in an elevated position with outstanding views toward Bowland Fell. The property is now in need of sympathetic modernisation. Lot 2: The Croft, a walled garden with detached building enjoying unspoilt country views - OIEO £25,000

LOT 1:
This very attractive period farmhouse bears a date stone of 1696 and has a classic frontage with some hooded mullion windows as well as small arched feature openings. It is attached to what will have originally been the barn now converted into a residence and there is also another cottage in the row. The original character of the property is evident internally with very attractive spacious sitting room and large farmhouse style dining kitchen. There are three good size bedrooms with en-suite shower to the master and a traditional house bathroom, the conversion of part of the loft has produced a very useful additional space currently utilised as a study. An oil fired heating system is installed with radiators as indicated below and there is sealed unit double glazing to all of the principle windows. An internal inspection should delight those seeking a home of true character and charm.

Mains electricity, drainage and metered water. Oil fired central heating. Fibre optic broadband connected.

LOT 2:
Brackenber Croft - a detached parcel of land bounded by dry stone walls, the area is part gravel, part garden with lawn and planted borders. Fantastic views towards the Bowland Fells but no vehicular access to the land, you can park in the village and walk 50 yards or so up the lane. There is a great building on site, with planning permission for a use ancillary to the farmhouse. With the farmhouse you'd need to apply to have this clause lifted and also apply for the use you'd like, at the present time it's just a quiet space where you can come to write, paint, sit or cultivate. There is no hope of a building plot or commercial use.

Mains electric and underfloor heating (currently off Brackenber Farmhouse's electric supply) but the vendor will cover the cost of the supply to be separated.

From Settle proceed up the A65 towards Ingleton and Kirkby Lonsdale, approximately nine miles from Settle and soon after passing Newby look out for the signposted right turn to Cold Cotes (one mile). Follow the road into the village and Brackenber Farm House will be seen on the right hand side immediately opposite the small postbox.

Cold Cotes is a very small unspoilt hamlet which still includes some working farms. It is set amidst scenic countryside and there are views across the valley from the house. The A65 is approximately a mile from the hamlet, to the South is Settle within approximately ten miles offering a wide range of shops, schools catering for all age levels and other amenities, nearby Clapham village includes a school and the railway station is on the Leeds to Carlisle line. Two miles to the North there is Ingleton with shops catering for most everyday needs, pubs and primary school, and beyond Kirkby Lonsdale with access to the M6 and the Lake District.
