Salt Pie Farm is simply best in class. Over 25 years the property has been painstakingly modernised, extended and continually improved to a standard and quality one rarely sees in Yorkshire. The result is a house extending to some 7,000 sq ft that oozes character, quality and it will undoubtedly appeal to a discerning purchaser seeking a generously proportioned and individual home in a setting that offers total privacy, with wonderful views over Swinsty Reservoir and the wide expanse of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty beyond.
This rural and exclusive setting belies its convenience being 15 minutes drive from the wide ranging amenities in Harrogate and within very comfortable commuting distance of the West Yorkshire conurbation. Leeds Bradford airport is a 25 minute drive with Harrogate having frequent daily trains to London Kings Cross.
Immaculately presented both internally and externally with the owners having a meticulous eye for detail, the generous living space at Salt Pie Farm cannot fail to impress. With an immediate sense of arrival into the two storey glazed atrium hall that incorporates a galleried landing, there is an elegant drawing room and equally stylish dining room comprise the formal reception rooms. The lovely breakfast kitchen that incorporates virtually the whole of the ground floor of the original farmhouse leads to an appealing sitting room with direct access to the south facing sun terrace on the western side of the building. A study, utility room, cloakroom and cellar further compliment the spacious ground floor. The upper floor bedroom accommodation is no less impressive with a large master suite and 4 further double bedrooms, the majority having en suite facilities. The first floor main landing connects with the self-contained flat that also has independent external access for the likes of dependent relatives or staff.
The setting of this exceptional country house could hardly be bettered. The house sits particularly well within the holding and offers total privacy with no footpaths or bridlepaths through the grounds. The gardens have been meticulously cultivated over many years incorporating sweeping lawn, formal borders, terracing, an ornamental pond, together with 2 paddocks and substantial woodland shelterbelts to the boundaries. The property takes full advantage of the topography allowing the outdoor living area to benefit from a southern aspect and the gardens panoramic views to the north.
