A former farmhouse that is filled to the brim with character features and has planning permission to be remodelled into a fabulous home, is for sale by informal tender, with a guide price of £700,000.

According to Mark Kane, our Skipton Branch Manager, Middle Beardshaw Head will provide buyers with a unique opportunity to purchase a period property and create their very own grand design.

Mark said: “This home has so much potential. Dating back to the mid to late 18th century, the character features like mullion windows, stone feature walls, exposed beams and period fireplaces are all very appealing. The fact the property comes with a barn and shed, as well as planning permissions for re-modelling, means it’s a very exciting opportunity.”

Middle Beardshaw Head is located within Trawden Forest conservation area, and the property is a short distance from the villages of Trawden and the historic village of Wycoller, sitting on the edge of the Pennines. Currently the house has four bedrooms and two shower rooms, a kitchen with a Rangemaster stove, living room, dining room, study space and vaulted cellar.

Ben added: “As well as the fabulous setting and historic home, the sale also includes an amazing double storey barn with period beam. It’s mostly double height, with a stunning barn aperture window offering fabulous views of the adjacent woodland and valley. The barn has attractive wood block flooring, windows to the front and rear, and a mezzanine landing with a stone staircase.

“There’s also a large shed, which was previously used for a campsite and B&B, which provides a number of storage spaces, two rooms, utility rooms, toilet and space for a shower room. It’s a good size, so again there are plenty of opportunities to develop this, subject to planning consents.”  

Outside there is a sweeping private driveway to the house, and formal gardens with woodland beyond, stretching up towards a pond and land that sweeps around to what was the campsite. In total the land extends to approximately 12 acres.

Ben concluded: “The closing date for offers on the property is the 12th of April 2024 at 12pm so any interested buyers should get in touch now to arrange a viewing. It’s a popular location and properties like this don’t often come onto the open market.”
