A Grade II Listed period farmhouse in a stunning setting within the North York Moors National Park.

Idyllically situated in the picturesque valley of Lowdales, just a mile north of Hackness village, Lowdales Farm is a pretty and unspoilt sandstone farmhouse set in approximately 2.3 acres. Surrounded by breathtaking views towards Whisperdales and Silpho, the property offers peaceful rural living within a particularly scenic part of the North York Moors National Park.

Lowdales Farm dates from the 18th century, designated Grade II Listed and retaining every inch of original character and charm. Over the last 28 years, the present owners have beautifully maintained and sensitively updated the property, carefully respecting its listed status and requirements of the National Park.

The property is approached via an adopted road with a ford, a quiet country lane leading to just one other neighbouring property. Beyond here, footpaths give access to miles of beautiful walks through gently undulating countryside from the doorstep. The gated driveway opens into a gravelled courtyard, enclosed by stone outbuildings and garaging.

On entering, an inviting snug room features a cosy wood burner and flagstone flooring. Traditionally configured, this leads through to the farmhouse style kitchen, with two well-proportioned reception rooms to either side of a central hallway. Every room exudes immense charm, with exposed beams and Victorian cast iron tiled fireplaces, and magnificent views enjoyed through box sash timber windows, framed by original working shutters. The first floor comprises two double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobe and under stairs cupboard, a house bathroom and separate shower room. The third bedroom occupies the entire length of the second floor, partitioned on one side to create a dressing room.

The outbuildings have been partially converted and now house a useful utility room with power and lighting, and a wc. There is further potential here, and within a second stone outbuilding to create a studio/annex, subject to planning and listed building consent.

Positioned side-on to the lane, the property’s pretty façade looks out over the generous garden, taking full advantage of its southern aspect and uninterrupted views across the landscape. A paved terrace and summerhouse provide the perfect spot to enjoy the serenity and beauty of the setting, and for watching wildlife in the pond. The well-maintained lawn is interspersed with fruit trees, and a hedged border creates a natural boundary alongside colourful planted beds, beyond which the fenced paddock extends to approx. 2.3 acres.

Lowdales is within a mile of the renowned picturesque village of Hackness. It offers excellent walking and cycling, angling on the River Derwent, and breathtaking scenery. It lies betwixt the coast with the characterful towns of Scarborough and Whitby, the moors, and the market towns of Malton and Pickering. The nearby A170 and Seamer station provide excellent transport links to York and beyond.

Services: Oil fired central heating - electricity supply from a generator, inverter charger and batteries (which can provide 240V to the property independently) - private drainage - private water supply - solar panels.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.
