Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY - Sharon Dale Bea­con Lodge, Sum­mer­bridge, near Pate­ley Bridge. Price: £525,000. Con­tact: Strutt and Parker, tel: 01423 561274, www.strut­tand­parker.com

BRIMHAM Rocks are a pop­u­lar tourist at­trac­tion and the Na­tional Trust con­trolled site is of­ten busy with vis­i­tors who love the weird and won­der­fully-shaped stones and the mag­nif­i­cent views over Nidderdale.

The own­ers of Bea­con Lodge can en­joy the fa­mous ge­o­log­i­cal phe­nom­e­non in com­plete soli­tude as the prop­erty comes with its very own bit of the fa­mous Brimham rock for­ma­tions.

The 4.5 acres of land around the house in­clude Brimham Bea­con, which is also one of the coun­try’s 4,000 land­marks where flames are lit to com­mem­o­rate days of na­tional im­por­tance.

Owner Steve Barker moved to the area in 1988 with his fam­ily af­ter he and his par­ents pooled re­sources to buy a farm­house, cot­tage and the land.

He says: “The Na­tional Trust land bor­ders ours but our sec­tion of the rocks is pri­vate. Pro­fes­sional rock climbers love it and we do al­low them to use it with prior per­mis­sion.

“We also al­low the par­ish coun­cil to light the bea­con, though again this is with our per­mis­sion.”

Steve and his fam­ily lived at Bea­con Lodge but have since moved next door. The prop­erty is lo­cated down a pri­vate lane two floors. Plans are avail­able from Strutt and Parker.

The ac­com­mo­da­tion now in­cludes an en­trance hall which con­tin­ues into a gen­er­ous din­ing room with kitchen ad­ja­cent. The sit­ting room is the most sub­stan­tial room on the ground floor and has a wood burn­ing stove and ex­posed beams.

The fam­ily room/bed­room four lies at the east­ern end of the house, while the in­ner hall has a shower room ad­ja­cent and stairs lead­ing up to three bed­rooms and a fam­ily bath­room. There is space within the largest bed­room to cre­ate an en-suite shower room if re­quired.

Out­side to the rear of the house, there is a large garden lawns with flower beds and an or­chard, a use­ful store and gar­dener’s WC. Bea­con Lodge is sit­u­ated just north of Sum­mer­bridge, which has shops and it is close to Pate­ley Bridge, which has more ameni­ties.

Bea­con Lodge is in a stun­ning po­si­tion in Nidderdale and comes with its own sec­tion of Brimham Rocks
