The property is very pleasantly situated on the side of the Whitaside Fell overlooking the River Swale and Low Row. It stands extremely well on an elevated site in a very secluded location within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is nevertheless within commuting distance of Darlington, where there is a mainline railway station.
Hollins Farm is a stone built former farmhouse that dates back to the 18th century. It has recently undergone complete refurbishment to a very high standard. The former cow byre and hay loft have also been recently converted. This provides flexibility as part of the main farmhouse or as a separate annexe, providing the opportunity for a holiday let subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained. The original features of the farmhouse and former byre have been preserved, including a stone flagged floor throughout the ground floor. The property is beautifully appointed and tastefully decorated to exacting standards. It benefits from under floor ground source heat pump heating.
On the ground floor you enter the property into the Entrance Porch. This leads into the Kitchen with feature beams. An electric AGA sits in a feature stone surround with fitted wall and floor units with granite worktops. The Dining Room has a stone surround fireplace with cast iron stove whilst the Breakfast Room has a useful stone serving hatch from the Kitchen with feature meat hooks hung from the ceiling. The Study and Inner Hall with a stone staircase to the first floor have feature stone shelves. On the first floor there are three bedrooms. The master bedroom, which has tremendous views, is a double room with Ensuite. There are two further double bedrooms with an immaculately presented family bathroom.
The annexe has separate access, if required, and leads to the Living Room (former byre) with a cast iron spiral staircase. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with Ensuite bath and shower rooms, which have all been converted to exacting standards.
The property is accessed via a green lane and private track. This leads to a gravel drive with ample parking for several vehicles. Gravel steps lead down to a delightful patio area. There is a most useful former store and cow shed which now comprises a utility and store for the ground source heat pump. To the front of the property there is a derelict stone barn which could provide a garage subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained. The grounds provide a blank canvas for the purchaser as these have not been touched and do require work.
