PART EXCHANGE CONSIDERED.
The sale of Palace Wood Farm offers a rare opportunity to acquire a lovely equestrian facility with potential to be run as a small private livery yard. The principal dwelling is believed to date back to 1750 and has over recent years undergone a complete programme of restoration and extension to form a lovely home combining modern appointment with a wealth of character features. Furthermore, there is still potential to either increase the size of the existing house or create self contained ancillary accommodation/holiday let subject to planning approval.
Palace Wood Farm occupies a delightful position on the western fringe of Flockton village overlooking adjoining open greenbelt with no immediate neighbours. Flockton itself is a popular and conveniently located village offering a range of amenities and within easy reach of Yorkshire commercial centres including those of Leeds, Huddersfield and Wakefield. Sheffield and Manchester are some 25 miles and 40 miles respectively.
Junction 39 of the M1 Motorway is only some 4 miles away and junction 24 of the M62 within 7 miles, for those wishing to travel further afield and London is within 2 hours rail journey from Wakefield which is within approximately 6 miles.
The principal dwelling offers comfortable yet well proportioned living accommodation which includes a characterful sitting room with beamed ceiling and stone fireplace with wood burning stove, spacious separate dining room with open fireplace and in contrast a light and spacious contemporary garden/living room with vaulted ceiling and windows on three sides. The farmhouse style breakfast kitchen includes a comprehensive range of oak fronted units and range cooker with lobby leading to a side hall with utility and cloakroom.
At first floor level there is a master bedroom with en suite bath/ shower room, two further double bedrooms (one of which would readily divide into two) and a house bathroom with W/C.
Outside, the property is approached through an electric entrance gate down a sweeping driveway into a private enclosed courtyard providing ample parking for numerous vehicles, horse box etc and which gives access to a four car garage and work shop. Adjoining the main house is a two storey barn which could provide additional accommodation or separate annexe if preferred.
The property benefits from solar panels providing an index-linked tax free annual payment of over £2000. There are 21 years left of payments.
The farm should clearly appeal to those with serious equestrian interests and is only 150 yards from country lanes and a network of Bridleways.
