OUTSIDE DETAILS FOR BARN, STEEL-FRAMED BARNS AND O
The property is beautifully located sat in its own approximately 43 acres of land. It is approached off Penistone Road between the villages of New Mill and Shepley heading up the hill out of New Mill. Hollin House Lane is a turning off to the right. This leads down through a woodland and, at the bend, there is a turning to the left onto Holme House Lane which, in turn, leads to the long driveway leading to the farm itself. As the Google Earth plan depicts, this is a truly magical location. Land and woodland with delightful ponds and having approximately 11 acres of historic woodland is a true ‘Darling Buds of May’ location. With views up and across the valley, Lower Holme House Farm truly occupies a remarkable location. Paddocks and Fields are extremely well cared for and are presented to a high standard, with well-established boundaries. The woodland, once again, is of great beauty and is complemented by three delightful ponds.
The driveway/lane leads up to the property and here there is a fabulous, gravelled, driveway and also a yard area. The gravelled driveway provides a huge amount of parking and turning space above the farmhouse and the barn. The yard space is complementary to the two detached modern barn buildings previously described. Behind the second barn there is horse-walking equipment and there are stables within the field and further stables at the other side of the yard. The location is blessed by a huge degree of privacy, and a footpath that passes through gives immediate access to stunning rural walks beyond the boundaries of the home itself. It should be noted that the property is just a few minutes’ walk away from the varied facilities within New Mill, or a short drive away from the bustling market town of Holmfirth, and is approximately a 15 to 20-minute drive away from the M1 motorway with the M62 being a little further. Please note that carpets, curtains and certain other items may be available by separate negotiation.
