A HIGHLY INDIVIDUAL FARMHOUSE CONVERSION SITUATED IN A HIDDEN VALLEY WITH FANTASTIC UNINTERRUPTED VIEWS OVER OPEN COUNTRYSIDE
Occupying an exquisite location in a hidden valley with just one adjoining neighbour, this truly unique property has been painstakingly extended & restored over the last 14 years to provide a beautiful Yorkshire longhouse, previously forming nothing more than a run down cottage and a derelict barn.
Oozing with charm & character and likely dating back in excess of 200 years, the accommodation extends to circa 4000 sq ft with 18 different rooms including: 4 Reception Rooms, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Dressing Rooms, 3 Bath/Shower Rooms, a Porch & Utility and a superb Living Kitchen, centered around a spacious Hallway with a fabulous hand-made Oak staircase. Solid Oak doors and attractive mullioned windows can be found throughout along with beautiful beamed ceilings and fine period fireplaces, having underfloor heating to the ground floor and fantastic views from almost every room. There is also a good sized integral Garage, parking for several cars, large landscaped gardens and an adjoining paddock.
Cowling Hill is a very well respected part of the village, ideally suited for those seeking the true pleasures of semi-rural living, but Surgill Bottom Farm is also practically situated for those needing to commute to work, having excellent links to Manchester via the M65 with Leeds also within less than an hours drive.
