Smarber Hall Farm - Smarber Hall Farm is a traditional stone built detached farmhouse occupying a spectacular position in Swaledale with a southerly aspect and expansive countryside views. Prospective tenants should note that this is a particularly remote location which requires a 4x4 vehicular access. The ideal tenant will be keen on the outdoors and looking for a long term let.

The property has been subject to refurbishment in recent months including a newly fitted kitchen, flooring, carpets and redecoration.

Dining Room - With a beamed ceiling and opening directly through to the kitchen.

Kitchen - A dual aspect room which has recently been re-fitted with a range of base cupboard units with grey frontage and wood effect work surfaces incorporating an inset one and a half drainer sink unit, electric hob and electric oven.

First Floor Landing - From here there is access to two double bedrooms and the house bathroom/WC.

Bedroom Two - A double bedroom with a southerly aspect and double glazed window.

Bathroom/Wc - Fitted with a white suite comprising a p-shaped panel bath with curved glass screen and shower over, pedestal wash hand basin and low level WC. From here there is access to another room which could be a dressing room or occasional bedroom.

Dressing Room - This is only accessible from the bathroom/WC and has a window to the front elevation.

Externally - The property has an access track which runs from Blades and becomes a tram line, concrete path allowing vehicular access. This is rutted in places with dips and is suitable for a 4x4 vehicle. The property itself sits in around 0.5 acres of walled enclosures which are mainly lawn, this includes the hardstanding and outbuildings. There is a stone terrace running the width of the building which is south facing. There are a range of outbuildings and hardstanding for several vehicles.

Outbuildings - There is a small stone store just outside of the main entrance door which has a power supply. In addition there is storage space to the first floor area of a stone barn adjacent to the general purpose building.

Smoking And Pets - Smoking is prohibited inside the property. Pets shall not be kept at the property without the prior written consent of the Landlord, which will be subject to separate rental negotiation.

Holding Deposit - Before your application can be fully considered, you will need to pay to us a holding deposit equivalent to one weeks rent for the property you are interested in. Once we have your holding deposit, the necessary paperwork should be completed within 15 days or such longer period as might be agreed.

If at any time during that period you decide not to proceed with the tenancy, then your holding deposit will be retained by our firm. By the same token, if during that period you unreasonably delay in responding to any reasonable request made by our firm, and if it turns out that you have provided us with false or misleading information as part of your tenancy application or if you fail any of the checks which the Landlord is required to undertake under the Immigration Act 2014, then again your holding deposit will not be returned. It will be retained by this firm.

However, if the Landlord decides not to offer you a tenancy for reasons unconnected with the above then your deposit will be refunded within 7 days. Should you be offered, and you accept a tenancy with our Landlord, then your holding deposit will be credited to the first months rent due under that tenancy.

Where, for whatever reason, your holding deposit is neither refunded nor credited against any rental liability, you will be provided with written reasons for your holding deposit not being repaid within 7 days.
