WANTED…

Brave new owners with patience and imagination…

Recent research gathered over the last two years from Leapfrog Lettings and Sales suggests that over 80% of British house buyers would be happy to take on a place in need of renovation – and if you’re one of those people, we’ve found the ideal property for you.

If you’re looking for a Yorkshire stone farmhouse with barn conversion, steeped in history and with an abundance of potential, it’s hard to imagine a better option than this one offering several outbuildings in addition to the main house, along with over half an acre of land.

This wonderful 17th century building that’s a characterful family home, is now in need of some TLC throughout to restore it to its former glory. There’s a touch of Sleeping Beauty about this farmhouse, tucked away in a shady spot with planting and mother nature doing its best to reclaim the building.

Skelton Green is a former ironstone mining village on high ground to the South of, and almost adjoined to, Skelton about 13 miles East of Middlesbrough. Manless Green Farm sits on the former Borough Gate Lane boundary which we are led to believe was the location for the weekly market held for over 400 years and occupies a pleasant situated adjoining open countryside on the edge of Skelton Green.

Recent research gathered over the last two years from Leapfrog Lettings and Sales suggests that over 80% of British house buyers would be happy to take on a place in need of renovation - and if you're one of those people, we've found the ideal property for you.

If you're looking for a Yorkshire stone farmhouse with barn conversion, steeped in history and with an abundance of potential, it's hard to imagine a better option than this one offering several outbuildings in addition to the main house, along with over half an acre of land.

This wonderful 17th century building that's a characterful family home, is now in need of some TLC throughout to restore it to its former glory. There's a touch of Sleeping Beauty about this farmhouse, tucked away in a shady spot with planting and mother nature doing its best to reclaim the building.

Skelton Green is a former ironstone mining village on high ground to the South of, and almost adjoined to, Skelton about 13 miles East of Middlesbrough. Manless Green Farm sits on the former Borough Gate Lane boundary which we are led to believe was the location for the weekly market held for over 400 years and occupies a pleasant situated adjoining open countryside on the edge of Skelton Green.

Originally owned by local farmer Robert Thompson and in the latter years by former art teacher John Wiggins, Manless Green Farm was developed as a wild nature reserve many years ago and indeed, was painstakingly planted with many trees and sown thousand of wild flowers.

Over a period of 15 years, Mr Wiggins also built a replica ironstone mine building complete with two mine shafts embedded into an embankment and installed a head stock tower where men and ironstone would be lifted out of the mine, an up cast shaft pulley wheel and rail lines on his half acre plot of land which was visited by organised school parties, Wildlife Trusts and individuals and indeed made light reading for many columns in national and local newspapers. Lots of fun for any mining historian!

Indeed, a replica full size 4 wheel pit hub stands prominently approaching into Skelton and on Marske Lane and is annually stocked with an abundance of flowers by the local community, as a memento of past mining activity.

Although in need of modernisation and sympathetic refurbishment throughout, the property has the benefit of a recently installed gas central heating system via a combi central heating boiler and offers a wealth of varied family living accommodation of generous size and proportions and we feel hat although work is required, this more than compensates by the competitive asking price.

Offering immediate vacant possession upon completion with no onward chain, Viewing is strictly by appointment only via the sole Agents due to the private access road approaching Manless Green Farm.
