Moor Top, Otley, West Yorkshire, LS21

Ilkley 01943 600655
Guide price £1,500,000

Enjoying stunning and uninterrupted views across Wharfedale, and with a site extending to around 14.71 acres including grazing land, stabling and ménage, this versatile property comprises the principal four bedroom farmhouse, an attached and spacious two bedroom home, garaging and storage - the whole with clear development potential, subject to consents.

West Chevin Farm: Entrance porch with cloakroom off; reception hall; two reception rooms; kitchen; utility and conservatory. Boiler room, store and cloaks. Four first floor bedrooms - one en-suite. House bathroom.
The Rafters: Hall; living room; contemporary living kitchen; master bedroom with en-suite; utility and dressing/store. First floor living room/bedroom 2 with bathroom off and mezzanine over.

West Chevin Farm stands in a dramatic location amidst impressive open countryside, commanding magnificent views across Wharfedale and the hills beyond, and yet is just a couple of miles or so from the centre of Otley and nearby Guiseley.

The property currently comprises the principal farmhouse, an adjacent two bedroom barn conversion and a comprehensive range of outbuildings, including storage and stabling. There is clearly scope to maintain the current make-up of the accommodation, or an opportunity to re-plan and develop the site to create a magnificent single dwelling with a comprehensive range of external amenities - subject of course to any necessary planning approvals and consents.

West Chevin Farm presently provides a four bedroom layout - one en-suite - with good ground floor space including a spacious reception hall, living room, family room, breakfast kitchen and conservatory with uninterrupted views across the valley. Adjacent, The Rafters provides more contemporary accommodation with a stylish living kitchen supplementing the principal reception space as well as a first floor living room/bedroom with en-suite off and the ground floor principal bedroom - again en-suite. Both properties have the advantage of extensive storage within.

Externally the site includes a substantial garage block, a range of stabling and additional storage. There is a ménage to the rear, and the property stands broadly central to the grounds which extend to around 5.95Ha (14.71 acres), with paddocks and grazing. An ideal equestrian property!

Irrespective of its rural position, West Chevin Farm enjoys an incredibly convenient location being just a short drive from the traditional market town of Otley, whilst Guiseley is just a couple of miles or so distant - the latter having its own ''Wharfedale' line railway station from where there are frequent services throughout the day into the nearby cities of Leeds and Bradford. Both towns offer a range of retail and social amenities, with Otley retaining its traditional market. The position forms an ideal commuter base with ready access into the nearby cities as well as Harrogate and Ilkley, whilst beautiful open countryside including the Washburn Valley and the Yorkshire Dales National Park is within easy driving distance - ideal for those who enjoy rural pursuits, cycling and walking.

From the roundabout at the western end of the Otley Bypass proceed towards the town centre and turn almost immediately right onto West Chevin Road. Follow this road out of the town for approximately 1 mile and after a sharp left hand bend turn immediately left onto Moor Top and the entrance to West Chevin Farm will be seen to the left hand side.
