LOCATION

Smiddy's Farm is located on the edge of the East Yorkshire coastal village of Skipsea, just 5 miles North of Hornsea, 9 miles South of Bridlington and 11 miles from the market town of Driffield. The Farmhouse and steading are accessed from Cross Street in the centre of the village, turning right into Cleeton Lane which becomes a single track lane and the property is situated on the left hand side.

THE FARMHOUSE

Smiddy's Farm is constructed of brick under a slate roof with PVCu double glazed windows. Requiring a program of improvement and modernisation and has the potential to create an impressive family home to a buyers exacting specification with the benefit of good sized garden and orchard adjoining the western elevation. Internally the property provides extensive accommodation together with large second floor attic room. Benefiting from LPG gas fired central heating system.

SERVICES

The property is connected to mains electricity and water. LPG gas supplied by an above ground tank situated in the farmstead supplying hot water and central heating via a modern boiler. Domestic drainage is to a septic tank which we believe requires upgrading to comply with the latest regulations.

THE OUTBUILDINGS

Immediately to the rear of the farmhouse lies a 'U' shaped range of traditional outbuildings extending to some 314m2 (3,380 sqft) constructed of brick under a tile roof. Subject to obtaining any necessary planning permissions, these buildings could be suitable for conversion to residential, commercial or holiday use. Plans were drawn up many years ago for change of use to 6x 1 & 2 bedroom holiday cottages but an application was never submitted. A copy of the plans are available for inspection at the selling agents offices or at a viewing arranged by prior appointment.

ADDITIONAL OUTBUILDINGS

Within the farmstead there are a number of additional steal portal frame buildings and barns together with a Polly tunnel within the orchard.
