Four-bed Crina Bottom is perched on the flanks of Ingleborough – the second highest of the Yorkshire Dales’ ‘three peaks’ – and is only accessible by 4×4 vehicles.

While it’s not connected to mains power, the 400-year-old farmhouse does come with its own wind turbine and eco-friendly heat generating system.

This means the buyers can expect to make around £1,800 annually from government incentive schemes and excess profits – and aren’t at the mercy of rising utility bills.

The two-story freehold home sits on 4.9 acres of land, comprising two separate gardens, limestone crags and two paddocks – and has ample parking for vehicles.

Inside, the ground floor has a laundry room, workshop, plant room and dining room along with a reception area.

There is also a cosy sitting room with an open fire and a family kitchen.

While upstairs, there are three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a fourth small bedroom, currently used as a store room.

The property also comes with four outbuildings, including a wood store.

Electricity for the property is generated from a wind turbine, with a bank of batteries on hand that are capable of storing two days’ worth of energy.

This comes under the government Feed-in-Tariff scheme, so the homeowners get paid for all the power generated, which comes to around £1,200 per year.

A backup generator, which runs off Red Deisel, costs around £800 per year, so the future homeowners could receive a healthy £400 profit annually.

Heat is provided through a biomass boiler, fed by renewable quality wood pellets.

This falls under the government’s “Renewable Heat Incentive” scheme meaning residents can currently receive £1400 per annum for it.

Water for the property comes from the mountain and is run through a small treatment plant so it is suitable for drinking.

The property also has access to broadband coverage through mobile phone signal and can achieve speeds of up to 20Mbps.

The property has been used as a guest accommodation business – providing breakfast, evening meals and a refreshment kiosk for hikers for several years.

Those considering snapping up the one-of-a-kind home can either choose to carry on this enterprise or turn it back into a personal windswept retreat.
