A unique and intriguing property, West Grange Farm is perfect for an equestrian family as well as those seeking a comfortable rural retreat with modern luxuries.

Full of character, this large and versatile home has been created from old industrial buildings and coach house and incorporates some distinctive features and plenty of country charm.

It s also a property of opportunity since it comes with approximately 4 acres of land and a large wildlife pond that could be the ideal location for glamping or yurts with the appropriate permission. Livery is also a possibility with full equestrian facilities including a ménage, fenced paddocks and stable block with a yard, undercover mounting area, feed store, mains power and water.

As a home, it is ideal for a large family with accommodation over three floors and a layout that can be adapted to suit individual needs.

Most of the spacious reception and living accommodation is focused on the U-shaped ground floor, facing into an internal courtyard. Prominently positioned to make the most of the sunny aspect is a conservatory with doors leading onto the decked and gravelled outdoor area where raised beds could provide fresh produce for the kitchen. Next is an attractive dining room which benefits from a bay window with added interest provided by exposed A-frame beams and a galleried landing.

The dining kitchen provides the anticipated warm heart of the home with exposed beams, a range cooker and cream units, as well as arched windows with stone lintels retained from the original coach house. The kitchen leads open plan into a cosy living room with a wood-burning stove set in an inglenook fireplace with a stone hearth, solid wood flooring and arched windows, together with access to a utility room and outside to the sheltered barbecue area.

After a study, the remaining wing of the ground floor provides three bedrooms, one with wet room-style en suite facilities, and a family bathroom.


The first floor is particularly impressive, combining a fabulous master suite with luxury bathroom, and a superb dual aspect drawing room with arched window that offers a lovely escape in front of the stylish fire. The fifth bedroom is also on this floor, providing an ideal nursery.

Beneath all of this is a basement floor with arched stone ceilings currently housing a tiled entrance hall, a gym and storage. A wine store would seem obligatory. In addition, there is a workshop and a large garage with power, lighting and roller-shuttered door.

West Grange is approached through an gated entrance leading onto a fenced drive and substantial gravelled parking area. The front garden has a raised decked area with stone steps, seating area, pond with recirculating water feature. Uninterrupted views from the property to the North West & SouthThe location, outside a small village off the A66 on the North Yorkshire border, offers both the tranquillity of the countryside with the benefit of excellent communications.
