PART-EXCHANGE CONSIDERED Set in approximately 30 acres of beautiful ring fenced farmland in the picturesque North Yorkshire Dales. Brockabank House is a magnificent, creatively developed and extended former farmhouse and barn complete with outbuildings, all of which have been exceptionally finished to the highest of standards and now provide luxurious primary living accommodation with 6 sizeable bedrooms, a two bedroom detached cottage, multi-office suite and large detached outbuilding suitable for further conversion. This idyllic, convenient setting coupled with the impressive scope for potential at Brockabank House will prove extremely popular with a wide range of buyers; those with dependent relatives, home businesses and those seeking income potential will all be equally impressed by this unique opportunity. The land surrounding the house would be ideal for those with equestrian or smallholding interests yet could be let out to local farmers if not required.
Brockabank has the potential to create an income of £18,500 per annum in its present form (based on information received by the owners letting agent). The large detached outbuilding suitable for further conversion could potentially create additional income (subject to planning).
