Location
Moorlands Farm is situated within open countryside approximately 0.5 miles to north of the popular village of East Morton. Village amenities include a primary school, St. Luke's Church, a village institute and community room and a well regarded local inn, the 'Busfield Arms'. 'Fardew Golf Course' borders the village and there is also a recreation ground. East Morton is just 1.5 miles from Crossflatts railway station with direct services to Leeds and Bradford and a regular bus service links the village with the nearby towns of Bingley and Keighley. The A650 provides good access by car to the rest of the Aire Valley.

Description
Moorlands Farm is accessed from East Morton village via Green End Lane and then an unmade track known as Upwood Lane. The property comprises a substantial range of traditional Grade II Listed stone buildings being the original farmstead made up of the existing farmhouse, former cottages and barns. In addition to the traditional buildings there is a substantial range of more modern farm buildings of varying age and condition. The traditional range of buildings already benefit from full planning permission and Listed Building Consent but in our opinion there is perhaps further potential to redevelop part of the modern buildings under 'Permitted Development Class Q', subject to meeting the necessary criteria.
