Full description

A detached country property with equestrian facilities, situated on the rural hillside above village with the advantage of far-reaching views. The original barn has been extended to create a spacious family home, with stunning original features throughout including exposed stone, beams and mullion windows.

The property is entered via a good-sized entrance hall with a stone flagged floor, exposed stonework and exposed beams, an open staircase leading to the galleried first floor landing and the original arched barn door which is now a side entrance door and window. There are three reception rooms including a lounge with a large fireplace fitted with a solid fuel burning stove and access directly out to the rear courtyard garden, a cosy sitting room and separate dining room. The breakfast kitchen is equipped with a Rayburn range, and there is a separate utility room which has a Belfast sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a study with access through to another room currently used for storage, but which could be utilised as additional office space, having a stone mullion window to the side elevation.

Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom is fitted with a range of wardrobes with high-level cupboards and has a stone mullion window to the front elevation taking advantage of the fantastic far-reaching views. There are a further three bedrooms, complemented by a family four-piece bathroom, en-suite shower room and ground floor cloakroom / WC.

Foxstones Barn is approached via a private (shared by two neighbours) gated tarmac drive and there is parking for several vehicles to the front of the property and a dedicated area for a trailer adjacent to the stables. The attached garage provides excellent storage. There is a small lawn area immediately to the side of the property and a courtyard garden to the rear. Across the drive, a lawn garden adjoins the paddocks (approx. 3 acres), and there is a fenced stable block of three timber stables with hay store and feed room. Superb open views can be enjoyed across Ripponden and the surrounding countryside.
