Tenure: Freehold

The Long Barn is an imaginatively converted long barn at the end of a quiet lane, in the village of Brough in Cumbria.

Brough has a village shop, primary school, outreach post office, an hotel, public house and thriving medical practice with in-house pharmacy. There are regular bus services to Kendal and Penrith and easy access to the Carlisle - Settle Railway at Kirkby Stephen and Appleby. Secondary schools are either the highly regarded Kirkby Stephen or Appleby Grammar schools. The town is just five miles from the popular market town of Kirkby Stephen which itself has a variety of day-to-day amenities including supermarket, general shops, banks, hotels, public houses, restaurants and various sporting facilities. Brough is also close to the A66 for Scotch Corner (A1[M]) and Penrith (M6), the Lakes and Carlisle and to the south via Kirkby Stephen to Tebay (M6) for Kendal and Lancaster.

The barn was converted in the 1970's and provides spacious and light accommodation on two floors. It is in excellent condition with modern bathrooms and kitchen, quality fixtures and fittings and double glazing. There is night storage heating throughout. Although currently used as a single dwelling, it would be easy to use the two floors independently offering a self contained annex opportunity for older children or relatives or to provide an income through letting.

On the ground floor, there is an external porch leading to the inner hall, 2 double bedrooms, a shower room and an attractive open plan living room with kitchen. There is a door out to the cobbled patio garden.

Upstairs, there is a light & contemporary feel with an open plan living room with sitting room with feature fireplace & stove, dining area and modern, well fitted kitchen with white fronted units. This room has beautiful views over the roof tops to the hills to the west and over the garden to the east. Off the hallway is a modern house bathroom, master bedroom with fitted wardrobes & en-suite WC and French doors out to the side garden, and a second double bedroom currently used as a formal dining room. Solid wood floors run throughout the upper floor and there is a door to stone steps leading down to the rear garden.

Outside, there is an integral garage with light & power with cobbled parking along the front. To the rear of the garage is a useful workshop with light & power as well as a Belfast sink and a door to the rear. To the side of the property is an attractive rockery style side garden with shrubs and borders and a private gravelled patio garden which leads through to the main garden/garth which is laid to lawn with trees and a greenhouse and has double wooden gates to the lane. There is a cobbled patio garden to the rear and a grass covered track over which the neighbours have access.

The Long Barn offers ideal accommodation for a number of uses and internal viewing is recommended.
