A STRIKING country house, Brough Moor Lodge dates back to 1891 when it was built as a hunting lodge to serve Brough Hall, which lies a few miles to the south.

Today it is an extensive and versatile family home which has been improved by the current owners to create a wealth of beautifully-presented, spacious and well laid out accommodation set over three floors.

Briefly, the ground floor accommodation of what was once the main house comprises an entrance lobby and hall, large living room with feature fireplace and double doors into the west-facing conservatory which gets the best of the evening sun, and an open-plan modern kitchen and family room with feature fireplace and log-burning stove.

A range of single storey converted outbuildings – connected to the main house by a stunning orangery with views over the gardens – are home to a utility room, cloakroom, store room, study, playroom and a sitting room with a feature fireplace and double doors to the rear garden. This series of rooms lends itself to being used as office space or could easily be turned into a self-contained annex.

The first floor is home to the family bathroom and three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and the master bedroom with both an en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobes. Upstairs again are a further two large bedrooms and a shower room.

The substantial and beautifully-present grounds – with wonderful views over the surrounding open countryside – are almost as much of a highlight of Brough Moor Farm as the accommodation itself.

Laid mainly to lawn, the grounds include gravelled parking, a turning circle surrounded by mature trees, established hedging and stone walls, a triple garage, an oak-framed south-facing open-air garden room ideal for summer entertaining and a woodland area complete with zip wire.

For those who want even more space to roam, there is the option to buy a six-acre paddock.
