Ings Farm is a wonderful village home which is centrally located adjacent to the beck in the prettiest part of Bishop Monkton, yet this very attractive property enjoys privacy from its neighbours. This 17th century property is Grade II Listed and was extended in the 20th century whilst retaining a wealth of character features with impressive fireplaces, timber windows and exposed beams, there is now obvious scope for the purchaser to modernise to their own taste and specification.

The gardens continue to either side with lawns, flowering shrubs and trees and there is a low fence with a gate leading to the pond which is a haven for wildlife and adjoins the southern boundary of the property.

The outbuildings comprise a large garage with sliding doors, a versatile studio with large patio doors to the rear, two stables which are flexible for a variety of uses and two additional stores, there is obvious scope to develop these buildings further, subject to receipt of the necessary consents.
