This exceptional rural home provides very spacious and versatile accommodation comprising a well-

Surrounded by fields which are grazed to encourage wildflower meadows, a spectacular section of How Stean Beck with fishing rights, extending to 26.5 acres (10.7Ha) in total. Offering many possibilities for the enjoyment of hobbies, equestrian or agricultural activities using the outbuildings. Stean is an unspoilt hamlet North of Pateley Bridge and close to How Stean gorge.


Stean Farm is an exceptional property offering very spacious and versatile accommodation in a simply beautiful location with stunning views in a pretty rural hamlet north of Pateley Bridge. The main farmhouse is a traditional detached stone property built in 1847 which is well-appointed with neutral décor, double glazed windows and insulated walls. Although sympathetically modernised, the house retains many original features including exposed ceiling beams and original interior doors. There are two reception rooms each with a wood burning stove, the larger of the two rooms being the full depth of the house with French doors to a rear patio area. The dining kitchen has a range of modern units, built-in double electric oven, hob, dishwasher, freezer, fridge, microwave and an oil fired Aga. The rear hallway leads to a guest WC, utility room and to the rear door. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms to the front and two further rear bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC. A recessed study off one of the double bedrooms could be converted to an en-suite.

The well laid out and superbly maintained garden has many shrubs, trees and perennials and to the front a lawn. The garden extends around the side of the house to the rear patio with access to the main reception room via French doors.

Adjacent to the house are two traditional stone barns giving considerable scope for the enjoyment of hobbies, garaging, workshop, studio, equestrian or agricultural uses. The smaller of the two is currently an artist's studio with insulation, double glazing, plumbing and WC. The larger barn provides workshop and garage space for four cars, with mezzanine storage and a further attached building. There are two further loose box size stone buildings and a modern lean-to steel and timber shed close to the entrance drive.

Stean Farm is approached over a cattle grid by a gravelled drive from the centre of Stean. Surrounding the farm are 26 acres of grassland, woodland and, at the Eastern boundary, How Stean Beck flowing through beautiful wooded banks with many wildflowers and a wonderful eroded limestone gorge. Stean Farm is a registered smallholding.

This is an extremely attractive and practical house, with outbuildings and surrounding land which provide the space and opportunity for the use for many hobbies and interests. There may be opportunities for further development of the barns subject to receipt of the necessary consents.

Services: mains electricity, sewage treatment unit and spring water supply. Broadband available at up 20 mbps.
