AN 8-bedroom farmhouse has hit the market.

Standwell Farm, Harlow Hill, is up for sale for £4,500,000 with Savills.

The farm, which has a total of 220 acres, also comes with three separate cottages generating rental income.

The site, near Stamfordham, has a lively yard and outdoor arena, as well as other farm buildings, including two large tack rooms and a workshop, and well-established amenity woodland and a pond.

Andrew Black, who leads the rural agency team for Savills in the North of England and is managing the sale, said: “The combination of its accessible location and quality of the principal house, together with farming and other income generating opportunities, makes Standwell such a rare property.

"With it being a mixed residential and commercial farm, there are myriad attractions to a range of prospective buyers and this is why we anticipate a strong level of interest in its availability.”
