Long Close, Stainforth, Settle BD24


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A unique and versatile detached property set on one level, in the most stunning elevated position overlooking the village of Stainforth, and with 360 degree views over the village and the surrounding countryside. Requiring comprehensive upgrading and refurbishment, the property offers the buyer a very rare opportunity to purchase a substantial property with large south facing gardens and those superb views including Pendle Hill.


Whilst we have not undertaken a survey, the property requires re-wiring, new heating system, bathrooms, kitchen, wall-coverings and windows as well as general updating.

This spacious property currently comprises of:- a spacious sitting room with open fire and fitted shelving and featuring panoramic windows incorporating French doors offering superb views.

Off from the sitting room there is a dining-kitchen with the dining area providing ample space for an 8 person suite and again with fine views from two large windows. A fitted kitchen with base and wall units has a further window with views. Off from the kitchen area there is a substantial utility room which in our opinion would knock through to make an even larger dining- kitchen and provide for a modern open plan space.

The reception hall features tiled and hardwood flooring and provides access to three double bedrooms, all having fantastic views. The main bedroom boasts an en suite bathroom with enamel bath, washbasin and WC and there is a house shower room with fitted units, WC, washbasin, shower enclosure, and a built-in cupboard. A loft hatch with drop down ladder gives access to the under-felted roof space which houses the property's hot water cylinder.


To the outside there is a tarmacadam driveway leading up to an attractive limestone courtyard area, with ample parking for three vehicles and a single garage, and beautiful and extensive south facing gardens beyond. The gardens offer a tranquil and private place to sit and enjoy the stunning views and are well stocked with mature trees, shrubs and attractive flower beds, and with further garden areas to the side of the driveway and immediately in front of the house.

On offer is a substantial property in need of refurbishment and upgrading, but with some of the finest views and gardens in the area.
