This property on Ribblesdale Estate needs work and is subject to a local occupancy clause

Miss Haversham would feel quite at home in this grade two listed farmhouse, which is derelict and in need of complete renovation.

While Crow Nest offers a project, the work involved should be well worthwhile as the property is substantial and sits in an idyllic spot.

The price includes the grade II listed farmhouse, along with a range of outbuildings, including barns, garages and a small cottage. The grounds extend to approximately 1.65 acres.

The farmhouse has been in the same family for over 60 years and was last lived in 17 years ago. It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, three reception rooms and a kitchen. To the front of the property are what were formal gardens and there is a side garden bordered by a substantial stone wall.
