Location
Lower Holme House Farm is situated between Oakworth and Laycock approximately 2 miles to the west of the centre of the vibrant and diverse town of Keighley. Keighley offers a wide range of
amenities including shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, a leisure centre and schooling for all ages. There are regular services by rail to Skipton, Bradford and Leeds and good access to the wider road networks to North and West Yorkshire and East Lancashire.

Description
This attractive farmstead represents an exciting redevelopment project which although is sure to be of interest to commercial developers and builders, also offers an exciting opportunity to private
individuals seeking a property from which to create a substantial single country residence or perhaps one with scope to incorporate annexe accommodation or hobbies space or home office suite. The property enjoys a delightful rural position with access from Holme House Lane via a cobbled lane from which a private drive leads down to the buildings.

Farmhouse
The farmhouse is entered via a vestibule from which stone steps lead down to the cellar which extends beneath the kitchen/dining and has stone banks and a large stone table. The kitchen/dining room is also accessed from the vestibule, having a range of base and wall units
with stainless steel sink, a built in cupboard and a tiled fireplace. The adjacent lounge has a tiled fireplace, built in cupboard and an external door opening to the rear yard and garden beyond. An
enclosed staircase leads to the first floor landing with three good sized double bedrooms and a house bathroom with turquoise suite and airing cupboard.

Outside
Extending beneath bedroom 3 and the bathroom is the old dairy and a separate store. To the rear of the house is a lean-to which incorporates a wash house and a separate loose box. Adjoining the other end of the house is a garage/workshop with loft above, accessed via stone steps to the rear. The loft floor is unsafe and must not be accessed.

The Barn
Full planning permission for the conversion of the barn to form a separate dwelling with double garage was approved by Bradford Metropolitan Council on the 24 May 2018. Application No: 18/00537/FUL. A full set of the approved plans and decision notice are available for inspection at the agents office. Electronic copies are available. There will be a charge of £15.00 for hard copies.
