Old West Farm is an appealing traditional Yorkshire farmhouse built of clamp bricks under a steeply pitched clay pantile roof, largely dating from the 1870s with the original part believed to date back to the late 1700s. Fully restored and extended over the years, an extension to one side sympathetically matches the architecture of the old.
Considerable time and estate management has been spent on the gardens and grounds of Old West Farm resulting in a countryside haven with formal lawns, orchard, parkland fields and a kidney-shaped lake stocked with brown trout and perch. With the Yorkshire Wolds as a backdrop, a more perfect rural setting is hard to imagine. The whole comes withjsut over four acres.
