Barn conversions can be a little bit 'boxy' if you know what we mean… this is anything but, it has been imaginatively designed with the reception rooms unfolding one onto the next to make the most of the space available in the old Dales L shaped barn, it also maximises the views providing a good connection with the garden and also the wide open unspoilt fells beyond.

Gardens extend to three sides, informal and individual spaces with mature trees (including a magnificent conker tree!) and a stream running along the southern boundary. There's grown up space to sit with a glass of wine in the evening and admire the view and space for the children to have their swings and climbing frames.

The barn lends itself to entertaining with a fabulous double height sitting room open to the apex with exposed trusses and stonework - a great place for family and friends with the old barn wain door now a picture window out to the seating terrace with the fells beyond.

In all, 261.1 sq. metres (2810.4 sq. ft.) within a plot of 0.14 hectares (0.36 acres).

Converted in 1994/5 by local builder of repute Andrew Mattinson, this is a barn conversion that was ahead of its time.
A highly desirable conversion where care has been taken to introduce local materials (exposed beams, wooden lintels, stone window cills, exposed stone walls in numerous rooms and flagged floors in the entrance hall, cloakroom, kitchen and dining room) and a layout that takes in several (we counted eight!) different levels with short flights of stairs in between creating a very interesting division and flow of space with several areas that would adapt to a variety of uses depending on how you live. Since initial conversion it has been extended by the addition (in 2005) of a garden room off the kitchen and upgraded (a high quality Kirkland Kitchen amongst other improvements) as the present owners have gone along. The gallery over the sitting room is ideal as a study, but it would also make a lovely library or hobbies space.

The country kitchen is stylishly presented with oak units, contrasting painted island unit, granite work tops, red four oven Aga and various Miele appliances. Steps lead down to the new garden room with a slate and pebble floor and floor to ceiling windows and doors along one wall - it brings the garden inside even on a wet day and makes the perfect dining area, plant room, TV den or play room for the children. The sitting room has a real wow factor with high ceiling, open fire, views and an oak ballustraded gallery above. A split level landing provides access to the five bedrooms, four of which are in a 'wing' and share the house bathroom, the master bedroom having its own contemporary shower room (new in 2010).

The established gardens have mature trees, lawns, flagged seating areas and above all privacy and views! There's generous private parking within the walled boundaries as well as a garage.

Carpets, curtains, light fittings and kitchen appliances are all included in the sale.

Mains water and electric. Private drainage to a private septic tank located in the lower area of the garden. Oil fired central heating to radiators (and in some rooms, underfloor). The Aga provides additional hot water. Double glazed wooden framed windows.

It's a good looking and extensive country home which sits well in the village and within the wider Dale.
