Higher Hollins Farm comprises a substantial detached country house of immense character occupying a large plot abutting open countryside in a superb rural position close to Dovestone reservoir and sailing club. It is exactly SOUTH Facing so has a sunny aspect throughout the day. Dating back to the 1700's and also the 1600's in parts it is constructed in stone and is set in a beautiful location with views along Chew Valley and abutting farmland on three sides.

The property has been sympathetically restored, extended and renovated and is a credit to the current owners who have created a stylish and spacious family home yet retaining all the charm and character of a period property including exposed beams and mullioned windows which can only be appreciated by inspection.

The front entrance opens to a large porch with vaulted ceiling and exposed stonework, and there is a useful guest wc off. The main entrance opens to a spacious reception hallway with bar and under-stair cloakroom, which further opens to two large reception rooms. The lounge has a magnificent inglenook fireplace with large wood burner, ideal for winters nights in, walk in bay window seat with views over farmland, exposed beams and dressed stonework. A door from the lounge opens into a further reception room, currently used as a music room (but could suit a variety of uses) which has a gas stove, there is a useful home office/study off (which has super-fast broadband and good mobile phone reception) and stairs leading up to a games room or could be a guest bedroom. This is the oldest part of the property and has some delightful characterful period features.

The dining room is beautifully presented and offers excellent space for entertaining on a large scale with plenty of room to circulate, it also has an impressive stone fireplace with gas stove and walk in bay window. Steps lead to a separate entrance and cloaks area. The kitchen is situated just off the dining room and is fitted to a very high standard incorporating a full range of bespoke handmade wall and base units with granite worktop space over, slate tiled floor twin Belfast sink and a gas fired AGA oven range. The kitchen has a dual aspect with mullioned windows and French windows opening onto the formal cottage garden. A useful utility room has space for a washing machine, dryer and second fridge / freezer.

To the first floor are four DOUBLE bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes, the master bedroom and third bedroom have stunning views over Chew Valley and there are two beautifully fitted bath/shower rooms both with underfloor heating complementing the bedrooms.

Higher Hollins Farm is approached via remote controlled gates into a private gravelled driveway which has lighting and leads to a large parking and turning area and garage with parking for UPTO 6 CARS with electric up and over doors with power and light and a woodshed / fuel store with lighting, plus separate tool shed. There is a gravelled pathway round to the rear of the property also providing access at the rear.

The gardens are beautifully tended and are walled from the road comprising a formal flagged patio terrace, mature shrubs and trees, water feature and topiary hedges, ideal for long Summer evenings. There are further lawns to the front and the side of the house, which abut open farmland and are the perfect place from which to take advantage of the fine views over the valley and beyond.

Greenfield remains one of Saddleworths most desirable villages with a good range of local shops, excellent local schools and transport links to surrounding centres including Manchester and Huddersfield from Greenfield rail station, which is just a short walk. There are also recreational facilities at Dovestone reservoir including local walks, sailing club and countryside walks on your doorstep.

From our Saddleworth office proceed along High Street in the direction of Greenfield and turn left into Chapel Road and left at the end into Chew Valley Road. At the end of Chew Valley Road turn left onto Holmfirth Road. After approximately 500 yards the property will be found on your right hand side clearly marked by a Ryder & Dutton For Sale notice.
