The sale of Middle Isle Farmhouse offers a rare opportunity to acquire a sympathetically restored period property together with an adjoining converted barn with a lovely contemporary interior, suitable for providing self contained accommodation or a holiday let if preferred. Alternatively, the two properties would easily combine to form a more significant residence.
The property is one of only a small cluster of houses some of a mile to the east of Oxenhope village which offers a good range of everyday amenities. A more comprehensive selection is available in Leeds and Bradford some 17 and 10 miles respectively and the surrounding area provides excellent historic and sporting facilities especially for those who have equestrian interests or enjoy walking in the countryside. Rail services are available nearby to Leeds, Manchester and London and Oxenhope also has its own local railway station.
This has, over recent years, undergone a significant programme of restoration successfully combining many original period features with high quality modern appointment. The ground floor is approached through an entrance vestibule with vaulted and beamed ceiling and exposed stone walls which opens through into the stunning open plan family dining/living kitchen with a range of luxury high gloss wall and base units complemented by grey quartz preparation surfaces, large central matching island/breakfast table with bespoke seating for ten people, feature brick arched chimney breast with four oven gas Aga, LED under cupboard mood lighting, integrated wine fridge, fridge, sitting area with access down to a wine cellar, feature Fireline eco log burner, bespoke fitted TV stand/shelving and bi fold doors with views across the valley. The utility room has a matching range of high gloss units off which is the guest cloakroom and WC. There is an inner hallway/study with Amtico oak flooring, bespoke solid pine bookcases and access through to the adjoining barn. A stone archway leads through to a most characterful sitting room with exposed ceiling beams, lovely feature stone fireplace with multi fuel burning stove and French doors opening out into the rear garden.
At first floor level is a small galleried landing with pine panelled ceiling giving access to a large principal bedroom with exposed ceiling beams, stripped pine floor, full height pine fitted wardrobes, stone mullion windows enjoying views across the reservoir and valley and a large luxury en suite bathroom with travertine wall tiles, Jacuzzi bath, twin wash basins on granite vanity unit, large corner shower cubicle, bidet and WC, exposed ceiling beams and underfloor heating. There are then two additional double bedrooms, one with pine built in wardrobes and views to the rear, the other with a beamed and vaulted ceiling with mezzanine storage area.
This has been a more recent imaginative project to create a highly individual self contained element of the property. Its use is varied in that it lends itself perfectly as a holiday let, accommodation for a dependant relative or easily combined with the farmhouse as one family residence. An entrance vestibule with built in high gloss cupboards/boiler cupboard and exposed beams leads through into a magnificent open plan living kitchen with feature Inglenook style fireplace and full height chimney breast, log burning stove and stone hearth, oak flooring, open to the full height of the roof pitch with exposed beams and truss. Kitchen area with a range of luxury high gloss units and grey granite preparation surfaces, split level cooker, washer dryer, pine fitted bench seat, stone archway open into a utility area with matching built in cupboards and integrated fridge freezer. Beyond is a fully tiled wet room with wash hand basin and WC, exposed beams and truss and a ladder radiator.
Green Apple Glass and stainless steel bespoke staircase with LED lighting leads up out of the living room to a raised area where there are French doors opening out into the rear garden and matching illuminated glass staircase leads up to a lovely mezzanine double bedroom with oak flooring, exposed beams and truss, glazed panels overlooking the living room and eaves storage area.
Middle Isle Farm is approached from Isle Lane leading up the side of Leeming Water. Beyond this the lane splits left and leads up to the front of the property where there is an extensive gravelled forecourt providing private parking for numerous vehicles. This also provides access to the integral double garage with internal staircase leading up to a large playroom/bedroom five with laminate flooring, vaulted ceilings and four velux roof lights. This could also readily form a further large bedroom with an en suite if preferred. The farmhouse and barn conversion together with the adjoining cottage sit fairly centrally within the land in its ownership. There are adjoining paddocks to the north leading almost down to Leeming Water with formal gardens to the rear facing virtually due south and with further extensive paddocks beyond. The plan attached to these sales particulars for identification purposes only, identifies the boundaries of Middle Isle Farm in red, however the area shaded blue which includes the cottage is specifically excluded from the sale.
