Full description

Upper Heights Farm is situated at the end of a private unmade track off Back Lane, approximately 1 mile west of the village of Stanbury, having its own primary school and local inn. The renowned village of Haworth with its connections to the Bronte family lies about 2.5 miles to the east and offers a good range of amenities including a highly regarded primary school, shops, a number of pubs and places to eat as well as being on the Worthy Valley Steam Railway Line. For a more comprehensive range of amenities including regular direct train services to Skipton, Bradford and Leeds, the larger, vibrant and diverse towns of Keighley and Bingley are a short distance to the north and north east respectively.

Upper Heights Farm enjoys a delightful elevated position set amidst the inspiring open countryside of Stanbury Moor with stunning views. The property is within sight of 'Top Withens', now in ruins, but believed to have been the isolated farmhouse on which 'Wuthering Heights' was based in the novel of the same name by Emily Bronte.

Upper Heights Farm has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of redevelopment and refurbishment by the current owners and now provides an impressive family residence. The property retains much of its original charm and character but cleverly and sympathetically integrates the latest in ground source heating and insulation technology which together with LED lighting throughout creates an extremely efficient home.

This exceptional property has been finished to the highest of standards with under floor heating on the ground floor and double glazing throughout with handmade oak shutters to every opening. Skirting boards, architrave and boarded doors are all in oak combining perfectly with the other character features which include stone flag floors, beams, exposed stone work and impressive fireplaces.

The property is entered via a porch into a central hall off which is a fully tiled wet room/cloak room. To one side is a stunning full height open plan living room with stone flag floor and a fine carved stone fireplace. An oak staircase gives access to a gallery mezzanine level overlooking the living room while a couple of steps take you down through a wide opening to a delightful sun room with a large window framing a simply breathtaking view over Ponden Reservoir and the open countryside beyond.

An external door opens onto a patio seating area and double doors lead through to the study which is also accessed from the family dining area. The dining area is another generous space with flag floor and steps down to a lobby area from where the Plant/Utility room is accessed and where the staircase to the first floor is located. The stylishly appointed kitchen with large island unit is set at a lower level and accessed via a couple of stone steps leading down through a wide opening from the dining area. There is a comprehensive range of oak effect units and an inset 1 bowl stainless sink. Integrated appliances include a four ring induction hob, dishwasher, twin fan assisted ovens and a microwave. There is an under stairs store and a further door leading through to a cosy snug at the end of the house which would also provide a fourth bedroom. This room has a stone fireplace with multi fuel stove, stone flag floor and external doors to the rear garden and to the front via a second useful porch.

On the first floor the main landing gives way to the principal bedroom with dressing room. The dressing room has plumbing in place to accommodate an en suite if preferred. There is a second double bedroom accessed from the main landing from where steps lead up to a second landing giving access to the third double bedroom with built in under eaves storage. There is a beautifully appointed family bathroom with panelled bath having shower over, w.c. with concealed cistern and wash basin set in a base unit and a feature floor level window.
