This is a most unique opportunity to purchase a former farmhouse and cottage buildings that have been owned by the same family for almost 60 years. The buildings and paddock land cover slightly in excess of 2.5 acres and are ready for a huge program of modernisation and improvement. The buildings are now in a poor condition and viewing and access is severely limited. The property is in a semi-rural position in a small hamlet, well placed between Leeds and Wakefield city centres. The potential this offers for development is huge We strongly recommend an inspection from an open minded investor or even a family who have the imagination to create and restore this former farm house.

To the road side of the plot there is a particularly overgrown and inaccessible garden area. According to the site plan there appears to be 2 access routes either side of the plot . The northern access leads to the cottage known as Greenhill farm and appears to have joint rights of access with the adjoining bungalow. The southern access leads into the main Farm courtyard area and is bounded by a number of dilapidated former farm buildings but leads to a footpath leading to the entrance hall door and the Kitchen door. This access route also runs to the rear of the cottage number 40. Beyond the farm buildings there are gates leading to the paddock land. The total area of the whole plot is slightly in excess of 2.5 acres, or thereabouts.
