Imagine coming home to your stone built barn conversion. Imagine relaxing in a huge living room with exposed roof oak beams that have been there since the 1600's. Imagine a family kitchen with the AGA cooking away - Well stop imagining and come and see it in real life - Here it is - The Long Barn!

The Long Barn is the best of both worlds. It's in a lovely rural setting with views out over the valley towards Wentworth Castle yet it's only a short drive onto the M1. It's only a few minutes away from the rail station in Barnsley along with all the shops and entertainments or the shopping experience at Corton wood or Meadohall Shopping Centres. It really is a great location and with no upper chain you can move in as soon as you like!

The Long Barn is part of a small community of four separate dwellings that originally made up the farm houses and buildings. They date back to the 1600's and possibly even earlier and are all Grade II listed buildings. They surround a gravel courtyard which, no doubt, was once the farm yard.

The Long Barn has been cleverly converted into a living accommodation that works well with both the modern need for comfort and efficiency along side the character that a property of this age can provide. There's ancient oak beams yet modern electric garage doors. There's exposed stone wall features yet a modern AGA gas fire range. It's a real mix of old and new that works really well to make a very special home for you.

If you want flexibility then there's a side annex with an upstairs and downstairs with it's own doorway outside that would make a great "granny flat", teenage annexe, or, home office which gives an element of independence from the main house yet retains links by sharing a kitchen and bathroom.

Rarely in a conversion of this age is there an integrated garage. This could be retained as a garage or (subject to permissions) be easily converted into additional living space

You enter The Long Barn through a handy porch where you can leave coats and boots on the stone floor before entering the main house by going through the oak door into the kitchen.

The kitchen is a true "heart of the home". There's ample room for a family size kitchen table as well as a comprehensive range of wall and floor units of outstanding quality. There's the practical side of plumbing for a dishwasher and a waste disposal unit, fitted to the sink, plus the charm of the double glazed window looking onto the fields opposite in one direction , and, the other window looking out onto the enclosed gravel courtyard.

Walking through into the dining room you'll be impressed by the size and the character of the room. From the solid oak door to the exposed roof beams, this is a very different room. There's plenty of space for a family size dining table and any other furniture you wish to include.

From the dining room you go up a small flight of stairs and past a very innovative use of space - a bookcase built into the stair head which adds further to the charm of the house.

You'll be pleasantly amazed by the living room. Again a solid oak door leads you into a most impressive open space stretching up to the full height of the barn and featuring amazing period wood work of the roofs A frame construction. Add to that the exposed stone work around an impressive gas stove style fire and the light flooding in from the double conservatory doors making this a room where ever you look you'll find something really interesting. Guest, family, friends will all be impressed with this very unique place.

Off from the living room is a glazed conservatory which leads out into the garden.

There's also an exposed stone door space leading off into the annexe. This is a clever arrangement of rooms to produce the option of an independent part of the house which could be used as a grown up kids area or a granny flat. Originally part farm house and part animal store this part of the house has been fully refurbished and had a mezzanine level added to create a ground floor space for a lounge or study, and, a staircase up to the first floor level which could be used as a bedroom. With an external door at ground floor level this could be that independent part of the main house when needed.

The remainder of the ground floor comprises of the oversized integral garage which is complete with electric garage doors, power, lighting, water and even plumbing for a washing machine. Subject to the relevant permissions this part of the house could be converted further into living areas.

There's also a ground floor cloak room and a separate toilet to save the dash upstairs!

As you go upstairs and past the built in bookcase you get a great view along the corridor of the solid oak doors leading off from the landing space with its exposed stonework and it's open roof beams and wooden window lintels.

The master bedroom is at the far end of the landing and is a large, bright and impressive room. Not only can it take the biggest of standard beds, it's also got the charm of exposed roof beams plus the practicality of purpose built fitted wardrobes.

The next room is the family bathroom. As you would expect it's spacious and bright with white walls and bright white, classic style suite. There's a built In cupboard housing the hot water tank which is ideal as an airing cupboard

The second largest bedroom is also in this part of the house. In line with the rest of the house it's bright and spacious with plenty of room and plenty of storage with the purpose built in wardrobes.
