Property description

Capple Bank Farm is beautifully situated in a sheltered position beneath the renowned local landmark of Penhill.  It stands superbly with panoramic views over the Vale of York with the Bolton Hall Estate and mid-Wensleydale to the North. The property is very well placed in relation to the thriving market town of Leyburn and other market towns together with the A.1(M).  It is also strategically located close to the racing hub of Middleham.

Capple Bank Farm House briefly comprises a very substantial country house which has been sympathetically renovated to exacting standards.  It has four main bedroom, three of which are en-suite with bath and shower.  It stands superbly with south facing views across the gardens and grass paddocks towards Penhill.   It has retained many character features including original stone flagging, stone shelving, exposed beams and trusses, window seats and traditional sash windows.  Of particular note is the large kitchen with central island and flexible open plan link to the dining room, both featuring underfloor heating.  Furthermore, the Master Bedroom has dressing room and bathroom en-suite.

The house is complimented externally by fine range of stone outbuildings including a former stable now providing storage and an artists studio, a former cow byre and stable with cobble floor which provides first class storage and conversion potential.

The first floor building is accessed by an external stone staircase which leads to two bedrooms and a bathroom. This cosy apartment has been let successfully as a holiday let for many years.

The Detached Cottage is beautifully positioned and has far reaching views to the east and north. It has again been successfully let as a holiday cottage and has the benefit of well appointed and deceptively spacious two bedroom accommodation. Of particular note is the sun room and private garden which benefit from uninterrupted panoramic views.

The whole property has ample gravelled parking for many vehicles together with a well proportioned double garage.  The detached cottage and apartment have shared access with a separate parking area which has little impact on the main residence.

Outside the property benefits from a formal raised garden with summerhouse, again with fine views across the grass paddocks.  There is a further garden and amenity area of grassland interspersed with mature trees together with a sweeping drive which leads to the whole property.

The land provides that all important equestrian potential with productive well fenced grass paddocks.  They are complemented by a timber stable block including large tack room or foaling box together with fodder store.  Importantly, there are no rights of way across the land.
