Sunnybank Farm

Stunning Dales property with exceptional environmental credentials comes to market

Sunnybank Farm, once part of the Bolton Estate in the historic Wensleydale valley, has come to market boasting exceptional environmental credentials in a private location with stunning views of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The property, located between the pretty Dales villages of Carperby and Redmire, comprises a delightfully restored and extended four-bedroom Dales farmhouse and a one-bedroom cottage and is connected to mains electricity and has a private water supply and a recently upgraded drainage system. Heating and hot water is provided by a ground source heat exchanger, enhanced by a solar thermal system.

In addition, solar PV is connected to the grid generating annual income through a Feed-In-Tariff and power for an electric car charging point. Rainwater harvesting provides additional water for the property which is set in nearly 8 acres.

John Coleman, head of country house sales at GSC Grays, said: “Sunnybank boasts an impressive range of environmental credentials which have been incorporated into the refurbishment of the farmhouse and cottage which is set in a picturesque and private location with outstanding views of the Dales. The property includes a newly planted woodland and offers the opportunity to create a wildlife pond.”

The original farmhouse has been extended to create a stunning farmhouse kitchen and a master bedroom suite above and includes a galleried landing with library over the main living room. Significantly,  original architectural features have been retained and highlighted where possible with the electrics and plumbing replaced and fitted to be environmentally friendly.

Sunnybank Cottage is fully self-contained but could be re-incorporated back into the main house. It has a spacious living room with a fully fitted kitchen, bedroom and ensuite shower room. The cottage is ideal for holiday lets subject to necessary permissions or as a separate annex to the house.

The attractive courtyard buildings provide stabling and storage, an extensive workshop, garage and a cinema room. Outdoors, Sunnybank also boasts beautiful mature gardens with a well-planned kitchen garden, orchard and a native woodland plantation. The whole area is teaming with wildlife with deer, foxes, hares and an abundance of birdlife.

The paddock in front of the house is stock proof and provides excellent grazing for livestock or horses and beyond that an area of wetland through which runs Kendall beck.

Sunnybank Farm is located 7 miles west of Leyburn with easy access to the A1 at Bedale. The nearest train station at Northallerton provides a regular service on the East Coast mainline to York, London and Edinburgh. The closest airports are Leeds Bradford International and Teesside International.

Sunnybank Farm is currently on the market with GSC Grays Boroughbridge Branch with a guide price of £1,495,000.  For more information, call 01423 590500.
