Property Description

A charming stone farmhouse with land located in this much sought after rural location enjoying a stunning setting within the popular Yorkshire Dales National Park. The farmhouse now requires refurbishment and modernisation and will appeal to local buyers looking for a long term family home, developers looking for a project or those parties looking for a second property or developing into holiday lets. The house has part double glazing, a former central heating and hot water system was in place with some wall mounted heaters (not tested) and was formerly utilised as two dwellings but is being sold as one detached farmhouse. There are a number of stone outbuildings and stores, area for parking, rear garden, a large detached timber framed agricultural barn and a grassed paddock of around 1.3 acres in size.


The farmhouse is situated in the quiet Swaledale village of Healaugh, a lovely location with far reaching views across the valley and surrounding countryside. Healaugh is under 2 miles mile from Reeth, the popular market town, with its weekly market on the village green, shops, pubs, restaurants, artisan bakery, cafes/tea rooms, hotel, garage, school and doctors surgery. There are beautiful walks and views in all directions and the village is only 12 miles from the market town of Richmond and 9 miles from market town of Leyburn. The area sees a high volume of tourists in both winter and summer attracted to the stunning location and incredible setting along with being part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Ground Floor

Formal entrance hallway to the main section of the farmhouse with feature stone flagged floor and stairs to the first floor, lounge with feature fireplace, dining room, fitted kitchen with door to the rear courtyard. To the right hand side of the building is an area previously used as a dwelling with open plan kitchen and dining area with its own rear entrance door and porch, separate lounge and ground floor bathroom/W.C. in white. From the open plan area stairs rise up to a bedroom marked on the floorplan as bedroom five.

First Floor

To the main section of the farmhouse is three good sized bedrooms, a fourth smaller bedroom with limited head height and extending into the eaves and a separate bathroom/W.C.


The property sits fronting onto the road with a small lane to one side leading to the rear. Immediately to the rear of the farmhouse is a courtyard area with stores, stone outbuildings one of which was used previously as a utility room. There is a fenced off garden area to the rear of the farmhouse (now overgrown). A large area of hardstanding provides off road parking for multiple vehicles. An agricultural timber framed barn (approx. 60ftx30ft) provides useful storage with an oversized access door for larger vehicles. There is a grassed paddock to the rear, on a slight incline or around 1.3 acres.

* Guide Price

An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

* Reserve Price

The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Buyers Fee

A successful purchaser will also be required to pay a Buyer’s Administration Charge of 1.2% of the purchase price subject to a minimum fee of £1,500 including VAT (unless stated otherwise within the property description in the catalogue) by debit card or bank transfer.

Legal Packs
