Bank Barn is a superb barn conversion designed and converted by the current owners who have produced a sympathetic and flexible design with some superb contemporary touches which ensure that internal inspection will not disappoint. The property is currently set up as three / four bedroom accommodation but does have the flexibility to create a seven bedroom home if desired. Occupying an elevated yet private position on the outskirts of Kirkby Lonsdale it is a five minute drive from the town centre and has excellent transport links to the national motorway network, Lancashire, Cumbria and the Lake District.

Created with eco living in mind the property has a ground source heat pump which fuels the heating and hot water maintaining the barn at a comfortable temperature all year round. There are solar panels located on the roof which provide an energy feed in tariff at an annual rate of £1516. In addition there is a 13 KW wood burning stove located in the living room which provides supplementary heating.

The barn is a superb mix between traditional and contemporary and briefly comprises; covered entrance porch leading to entrance hall with radiator. Superb contemporary fitted kitchen with granite worktops and integrated appliances. There is also a generous walk in pantry, utility room, dining room with double aspect barn windows and stair access to living room. The Northern end of the property could be used as separate annexe and is currently set up as a study, double bedroom with en suite wet room. However this area could be self contained and provide living room with kitchenette, double bedroom and en suite wet room. The wet room also doubles up as a ground floor cloakroom if desired. The living room is particularly impressive with exposed beams and open eaves design. There are maple wood floors and exposed stone walls to this contemporary living space which gives a superb feeling of space and light as there are multiple windows to both aspects. From the living room there is a further staircase to the second floor where there is an occasional bedroom / day room on a galleried landing prior to reaching two further double bedrooms, house bathroom and separate wc. The bathrooms have been recently upgraded and are of excellent quality and design. To the lower ground floor of the property accessed externally there are two further workshop / storage rooms which house the heat exchanger for the ground source heat pump, these rooms have been previously used as workshop / storage space but would equally provide extra accommodation if desired and could be accessed internally by the installation of a staircase if so desired.

Externally the house shares a driveway with the adjacent property and there is ample courtyard parking for several vehicles. At the northern end of Bank Barn there is a large carport for covered parking if desired. There are external storage areas for logs, bin storage and composting which also provide access into the back garden. The rear garden is a delight as it is entirely private and has long distance views over the surrounding countryside. There is access to a patio from the kitchen which looks up to a small area of limestone pavement at the top of the garden.
