Middle Farm, West End

This 17th century property, which comes with breathtaking views of Thruscross reservoir, features on the front cover of “The Shell Guide to Reading the Landscape” by Richard Muir. It has also attracted the attention of photographers and painters who have captured it for posterity. Owner John Cooper says: “It is a traditional Pennine longhouse. The lower part of the house was the farmer’s home, and the upper end was a functioning barn for the livestock. The previous owner purchased Middle Farm when it was in a state of dilapidation and renovated the property, maintaining many of the original features like the beams and flag stone flooring. Now, our home has a fantastic combination of the old and new, with a beautifully modern kitchen and utility room, a Rayburn Range and attractive stone flooring, a lounge with a multi-fuel burning stove, a dining room with exposed beams and flagstone floors, a study and the vaulted cellar which now serves as a perfect wine store.” It has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Outside, is a garden

Chris O’Mahony of Dacre, Son & Hartley says: “It benefits from a stunning rural location but is also within easy reach of Harrogate and Otley.”
