Knowle Court Farm is accessed via a shared drive from Ellers Road just 1 mile to the south of the combined villages of Sutton, Cross Hills and Glusburn. Cross Hills has a busy main street
with a good range of shops, a Co-op superrmarket and a number of inns. There is a primary school in Glusburn and South Craven Secondary School in Sutton. 6 miles to the north is the popular market town of Skipton with the Yorkshire Dales beyond and 4 miles to the south is the larger town of Keighley. Both Skipton and Keighley offer a full range of amenities including excellent transport links with direct rail services to Bradford and Leeds.


Description

Knowle Court Farmhouse is the original dwelling to the farmstead with the adjoining stone barn the last remaining unconverted building. There are two other separate dwellings within the yard, one adjoining the unconverted barn and the second converted from a detached stone barn. This attractive group of properties is nestled on the side of the Aire Valley amidst open countryside with stunning views over the village of Sutton and beyond.

The farmhouse, formerly two separate cottages, retains many original features including beams, fireplaces and cellars with vaulted ceilings, but would now benefit from refurbishment throughout and possibly reconfiguration of elements of the accommodation. This most interesting of houses together with the adjoining barn represents a wonderful opportunity for those seeking a project or property on which to make their mark.

Together with the house and barn are two excellent fields which lie adjacent to the access track and extend in total to about 2.5 acres. The land will appeal to those with equestrian or hobby
farming interests and provides excellent control to the approach and immediate outlook from the farmhouse.

The farmhouse is entered via a vestibule from which the second staircase leads to the first floor. The vestibule opens into a pleasant living room with multi fuel stove set in a stone surround
and a beam and boarded ceiling. The focal point of the kitchen is the green 'Redfyre' range which, as well as being used for cooking, serves the central heating and hot water. There is a
stainless steel sink set in a base unit, electric cooker point, beam and boarded ceiling and under stairs pantry. An inner lobby gives access to the cellar, the main staircase to the first floor and a generous second living room. The living room has a multi fuel stove set in a stone surround, stone flag floor, beams and an external door. A ground floor shower room is accessed from the living room.

A half landing from the main staircase gives access to the smallest of the four bedrooms with the main landing leading through to bedroom 1 having an original cast iron fireplace set in a stone surround. The landing also gives access to the bathroom, which in turn leads through to bedroom 3. Bedroom 2 is accessed independently via the second staircase but also has a connecting door to bedroom 3.
