Stubbing Hill Farm is a superb detached 4/5 bedroom country residence with land, situated on the edge of the village of Sutton-in-Craven offering the benefits of quiet rural living, open aspects and splendid views yet close to village amenities and schools.

In addition to the generously proportioned farmhouse with many period features such as exposed beams and stone flag floors, this property also offers a total of over 1650 sq ft of hobby rooms, workshops, shippon, stables and garaging suitable for a plethora of uses including cottage industries, home offices or consulting rooms, conversion to living accommodation, hobby farming and equine pursuits. All this is situated in about 1 acre of attractive landscaped gardens and grounds. A further 10.35 acres of good quality meadow, pasture together with a copse and the access lane to the property are available under separate negotiation.


The property is situated off West Lane on the southern edge of the popular village of Sutton-in-Craven. Good primary and secondary schools are within walking distance and the village
has pubs and local convenience shops. The market town of Skipton and the larger town of Keighley offer a broader range of facilities. The nearest railway station is around 2 miles and
has frequent direct trains to Leeds/Bradford whilst East Lancashire and Manchester are accessible via the M65 from Colne. Stubbing Hill Farm is separated from the nearest village
houses by fields (those available for purchase by negotiation), and is surrounded on all other sides by open farmland with lovely country walks to the moors from the door.


This substantial family residence has undergone major renovation to exacting standards within the last 12 years. The original farm cottage has been extended into the attached traditional
barn to create a well insulated, efficient home with modern comforts such as underfloor heating throughout, yet retaining the character and charm with oak beamed ceilings, stone flag floors, exposed stonework and the original twin barn arches left open to create an unusual yet very useful feature. Stubbing Hill Farm is entered via the front entrance porch into a large but
welcoming sitting room, the focal point of which is a fully working traditional range set in a fine stone surround. One wall has exposed original stonework and a feature alcove. Adjacent to
the sitting room is a living room with multi fuel stove, also set in a stone surround. Both these rooms have oak beams to the ceiling, oak doors, oak boarded floors, and windows to two
sides the larger ones with long views over the village to the hills beyond. The living room leads to a fabulous open plan dining room and kitchen approx. 32 feet in length giving scope for
large dinner parties and family meals. This area has stone flagged floors, oak beams, joists and uprights giving true farmhouse character. There is also an electric "Everhot" cooking range. From the dining area stone steps lead to a cellar whilst an enclosed staircase leads from the kitchen to the first floor. A side hall from the kitchen gives way to a useful utility room on the left, a cloakroom to the right and an external door to the passage way under the barn arches. The kitchen also has an external door to the garden porch with stone seat leading to the
south facing garden.

boxes, previously used for horses but currently in use as storage and a kennel.
Adjacent is a useful lawn mower / garden store with double doors and window to rear. To the front of this block is a spacious double garage built around 10 years ago in traditional materials to sympathetically blend with the original buildings.

arches, which is very useful for loading/unloading in inclement weather. Gates lead to the stone sett courtyard and further to the pleasant walled rear garden with patio area which enjoys a very sunny aspect. A pond with constant natural water feed and feature stream also has another stone flagged area for seating. Beyond is a grassed area with ornamental trees and a beck. This area could easily be fenced off to create a paddock if preferred. There is also a small copse with goat shed and log store, and a walled grassy lane.

An additional 10.35 acres of meadow and pasture with field shelters/implement stores and incorporating the property's access lane is also available to purchase by separate negotiation. The purchase of this additional land would create an almost total ring fence of own land around the property.
