Low Pasture Farm is a unique lifestyle property with a truly rich history. A building has stood upon the grounds for almost a millennia, beginning life as the mill to the neighbouring Byland Abbey, before becoming a pair of cottages in the 18th century and latterly into one characterful main house which unusually, given its pedigree benefits from being unlisted. The property is situated in a wonderfully private and sheltered position and set within the heart of 44 acres of pastureland, garden and grounds.
A substantial traditional stone farmhouse, with a number of attractive period details, the property was extended around 25 years ago to create additional rooms and in all amounts to 1,793 square feet of accommodation. In brief comprising; entrance hall with cloakroom, sitting room, further reception room/snug and study. Large breakfast kitchen with utility room and front facing dining room. To the first floor are three bedrooms and the main house bathroom.
Standing adjacent to the main house are a range of traditional outbuilding, which were built using salvaged abbey stone and feature some unusual ecclesiastical flourishes. The buildings include a self-contained annexe ideal as guest accommodation and which provides compact 500 square feet, one bedroom accommodation, converted from the original granary building. There would be potential to explore the planning on the annexe and buildings to create further cottages or accommodation subject to consents.
The land is situated within a ring fence and comprises productive grazing and mowing land, interspersed with some woodland and shrub areas providing conservation value. The land which is well fenced and watered and in all amounts to around 44.9 acres.
Low Pasture Farm is a property which sits especially well within the surrounding countryside, settled in a wonderfully secluded position, facing full south to its front, and sheltered to the rear. From the land there are superb far reaching views to be taken in; Looking across to the west, there is the White Horse at Kilburn, then Dales beyond, to the east there are views over towards Ryedale, to the north are the North York Moors National Park and to the south is the Vale of York.
The land, though not registered as organically farmed, has been managed to strict organic standards for at least 25 years. The objective being to create a wildlife sanctuary, by widening hedges, creating wildlife corridors and preserving habitats. This ethos has extended to the woodland, scrub and preservation of traditional Yorkshire meadow grasses. A brief which has been richly rewarded by the current abundance and variety of wildlife on the farmland and close to the steading.
Overall, the property is a perfect proposition for those looking to find a private yet accessible country property with the benefit of an annexe, buildings and land. The property is situated in an accessible rural location and should appeal to those with smallholding or equestrian interests. There is excellent riding on the doorstep.
