Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Occupying an elevated, rural position and enjoying splendid views of Dentdale Valley and the fells beyond, Stepping Stones is a spacious detached property, built in 2004 for the current owner. The layout is flexible and would accommodate ground floor living for elderly guests. The two main reception rooms enjoy views along the front with the sitting room having doors out onto the terrace. The master bedroom is very spacious - an absolute treat with a cup of tea in bed! There are two garages, a double (which could be used as a workshop) and a single with hard standing parking area and further parking in front of both garages. The gardens surround the property on three sides and offer scope for landscaping and planting if you've green fingers! A gravelled terrace provides the perfect place to sit and enjoy the view - watch the moon rise over Rise Hill….magical. A parcel of woodland is to the rear, mainly planted with pine - perfect for an adventure playground for children, visiting grandchildren or even a grown up's treehouse office. In spring, the wood bursts into life with bluebells, wild garlic and wood anemones. The area could also be cleared felled, providing a source of income and a stock of wood for your own use. The vendor informs us that grants may be available from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, the Forestry Commission and the Woodland Trust. A young wood of indigenous trees is planted to the front of the property along with apple, pear and plum trees. The property is bordered to the east by Seeds Gill. In all, c. 0.53 hectares, 1.31 acres.

Mains electricity and water and private drainage to a septic tank. Oil fired central heating. The oil tank is housed in a secure outbuilding.

Please note two public footpaths pass through the property. The main footpath follows the farm track and a second path runs between the house and the garages, wonderful if you've dogs and want to walk straight from the door.

Dentdale is a valley full of beauty and historic interest. It is a farming community, with scattered homesteads, giving a feeling of great space. The Dales Way long distance path runs along the length of the valley, as does the River Dee. The pretty village of Dent has a general store and post office, two pubs, various tea shops, a church and school. Dent station, the highest mainline station in England at 1150 feet above sea level, is located in nearby Cowgill. Trains run daily making Leeds, Carlisle, London, Glasgow and Manchester all accessible by rail. Residents have been known to commute daily to Leeds, if not that, then it makes for a hassle free shopping trip!

From Junction 37 of the M6, head towards Sedbergh and Dent on the A684. On entering Dent, follow the cobbled street into the centre of the village and at the George & Dragon, bear right. Take the second turning on the right (there is a public footpath sign to Throstle Hall/Flinterghyll) and continue onto the farm track. Follow the track up through the field and after crossing the cattle grid, Stepping Stones can be found on the right.
