DESCRIBED as "a house of immense atmosphere and authenticity", this Yorkshire Dales farmhouse is believed to date back to around 1740.

Under Knotts, in the scattered hamlet of Firbank, has Grade II-listed character and charm., and also offers plenty of scope for buyers to make their own mark.

There are oak doors, most with Suffolk latches, ceiling beams and lintels, a substantial stone fireplace with spice cupboards either side in the sitting room, a decorative fireplace in the study, quarry tiled floors, picture rails, exposed oak floorboards, and a fabulous oak staircase with oak wall panelling.

Under Knotts commands far-reaching views towards the Howgill Fells and its idyllic four-acre setting features informal gardens and woodland, an orchard and kitchen garden, greenhouse, pond, beck, seating terrace, stone-built garden store, and a dilapidated barn with planning consent to convert.

Set over three floors, the accommodation offers two reception rooms, a study and a farmhouse kitchen with the quintessential Aga, four bedrooms and a large bathroom. The bedroom on the second floor enjoys the most magnificent views down the valley and across to the Howgills, and would be perfect as a master suite.

If you have ever dreamt of growing your own produce and keeping a few chickens or even a pony, the three-acre paddock provides just such an opportunity.

All fitted carpets, curtains (except the master bedroom), blinds, curtain poles, light fittings, white goods, the greenhouse and garden furniture are included in the sale.
