Full description

Newly renovated to an exceptionally high standard throughout, this truly outstanding detached barn conversion provides spacious four bedroom en-suite accommodation and stands within good sized grounds enjoying a south facing rear garden together with a generous private driveway leading to an adjoining double garage.

Commanding fine long distance views from the front and rear, this individual detached home has been beautifully finished throughout and offers a particularly light and spacious living space which is often difficult to achieve within a converted barn.

The original large barn door opening leads into a spacious dining/reception hall, open to the second floor with galleried landing and including oak flooring together with full height exposed stone reveals. The ground floor layout has been thoughtfully planned to include a cloak room together with an adjoining ground floor WC and the dining hall also provides access to both the kitchen and the living room. The very sophisticated dining kitchen includes granite worktop surfaces, an island/breakfast bar unit, quality appliances, long distance views and bi-folding doors adjoining the rear garden. The ground floor layout has also been enlarged to create a spacious utility room leading off from the kitchen and with doors leading to both the spacious integral double garage and also to the rear garden. The generously proportioned living room also includes oak flooring and benefits from windows to three elevations, a quality solid fuel stove set in a feature fireplace, exposed beams and an oak staircase leading off to the first floor. To the first floor the galleried landing overlooks the dining/reception hall and leads to four well planned bedrooms including a stylish en-suite shower room to the master bedroom. There is a luxurious house bathroom with a contemporary four piece suite including a feature free standing bath. Planning permission has also been granted to create a fifth bedroom over the garage.

The accommodation is simply stunning throughout and includes high quality fixtures and fittings together with a tasteful modern interior design theme. The handsome stone built exterior has been re-glazed and re-pointed and the generous garden areas provide ample out-door space for a growing family.

Surrounded by beautiful open countryside and moorland, with a great choice of footpaths to explore, the village of Cowling is served by a range of amenities and is within easy commuting distance of the nearby towns of Keighley, Skipton and Colne. The local amenities include a sub post office/village store/off-licence, a public house, a restaurant, a park/playground, a primary school, a Church and a modern village hall offering a range of community classes and events. The nearby village of Cross Hills offers a wider selection of everyday shops and amenities including South Craven secondary school and there are railway stations located in the villages of Steeton and Cononley.



Certainly representing an exciting opportunity for those searching for a high quality, newly renovated detached home within a short commute of all nearby business centres, the property has much to commend it and viewing is highly recommended indeed.
