Yew Grange Farm is a traditional North Yorkshire Moors Farmhouse with a good selection of traditional and modern buildings suitable for a number of uses (subject to planning). The property stands close to the head of Glaisdale Dale and enjoys a picturesque setting with views over open farmland up towards the moors.

The house has been modernized with oil central heating, modern kitchens and bathrooms to offer comfortable and spacious family accommodation. This is a genuine old farmhouse, the oldest section dating back to 1743, and has tremendous potential.

The house is adjoined by, as yet undeveloped, stone outbuildings which would potentially allow for development and extension of the accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. There is also a useful arrangement of modern style buildings commensurate with a hill stock farm.

From the front garden, a panelled front door with flanking windows opens into an entrance porch with a tiled floor and a window to the side. An old panelled inner front door opens through into an L-shaped hallway housing the attractive period staircase with a shelved storage cupboard beneath. There are windows facing to the rear.

Sitting Room: The sitting room has windows facing to the front, side and rear and a fireplace with an inset Stovax multi-fuel stove.

Dining Room: The focal point of the dining room is a fireplace with a tiled hearth and surround. A panelled sash window, with window seat, faces out on the front garden and there is a shelved recess to the side of the fireplace.

From the entrance hallway an old door gives access to a rear hall with a tiled floor having underfloor heating and a part glazed door to the back and other doors leading to the kitchen and into a second, broad entrance hallway with a tiled floor and panelled door to the front.
