Moor House Farm is tucked away in a quiet spot off Machin Lane, near Underbank Reservoir close to Bolsterstone and Stocksbridge, not far from the Peak District boundary.

The farmhouse has been sympathetically refurbished and comes with a self-contained two bedroom annexe, while the grounds include south-facing landscaped gardens, paddocks, a manège – an enclosed area for equestrian training – and several outbuildings, among them stables and a barn.

The current owners say the property is a ‘lovely looking house’.

They say: “It’s a real eyeful as you come through the gates. The location was another huge attraction when we first came to view it nearly 15 years ago as we’re surrounded by our own land but everything we need is easily accessible, including the motorway network for work and leisure purposes.

“We’ve not had to make any alterations to the layout as it’s ideal as it is, but we have made a number of improvements during our time here, including the addition of new windows and doors, and a new boiler.

"We’ve recently had the conservatory rebuilt and it’s a lovely room now. The work continued outside too as we’ve had the driveway resurfaced which has given us extra parking space, as well as the addition of the electric gates which adds to the sense of security and privacy.”

There is ‘no shortage of scenic walks’ through the surrounding countryside and around the reservoir, the owners say.

"It’s great for horse riding along the bridle paths too.”

Moor House Farm’s split-level garden is ‘very secure and private with plenty of shrubs and plants to give colour and interest throughout the year’, the vendors say.

The sale is being handled by Fine & Country Sheffield.
