Desirably situated with outlooks across Snape Castle and open fields in a picturesque village, this superb detached barn conversion offers impressive and spacious interiors with quality fittings, character features and five bedroom family living including a versatile one bedroom Dovecote, set within large lawned gardens.

A most impressive detached barn conversion of exceptional quality having been sympathetically converted to provide an excellent family home. This attractive property retains a wealth of charm and character with fantastic vaulted ceilings and slit windows, combined with luxuriously appointed interiors having oak staircase, internal doors and skirting, gas fired central heating with under floor heating to the ground floor, timber framed double glazed arched windows and an Opus sound system with recessed speakers. Snape Castle Barn is welcomed by an impressive reception hall with arched doors to the front and to the rear garden, having marble tiled flooring and a guest cloakroom off. There is a well-proportioned sitting room with multi fuel stove and stone fire surround, an impressive living/entertainment room with full height vaulted ceiling, stone fire surround and oak wooden flooring, plus 10ft glazed arched barn windows to two sides and double doors leading to a versatile office/gym with separate staircase to an office/studio with ensuite shower room. The main reception hall also leads to a fantastic living/dining kitchen with an extensive range of oak units having granite work surfaces and integrated appliances, with tiled flooring and a living area with space for dining and a multi fuel stove. In addition there is a rear hall and utility room. To the first floor a spacious landing with airing cupboard gives access to the master bedroom suite with Juliette balcony providing wonderful views, a dressing room and ensuite bathroom with separate shower. Bedroom two features an ensuite shower room and there are two further bedrooms each with arched windows, a separate study which adjoins the void above the living/entertainment room and there is a house bathroom with a freestanding bath and twin wash basins.

The Dovecote is a detached Grade II listed building which has been sympathetically converted to provide independent accommodation which has been previously used for holiday letting. There is a sitting room to the ground floor with a fully fitted kitchen with cream units and integrated appliances, along with a dining area and separate wc, all with wooden flooring. A characterful staircase leads to the first floor where there is a spacious double bedroom with exposed beams and large bathroom with a white suite including a roll top bath and having travertine tiled walls and floor. The Dovecote enjoys its own private garden with patio and lawned area.

Externally Snape Castle Barn is approached by a private gravelled driveway where there is a separate parking area adjacent to The Dovecote and electric gated access through a stone wall boundary to a private gravelled driveway with off street parking for several vehicles. Steps lead to an attractive paved terrace adjoining the house and give access to the property. There are shrub borders and a lawn to either side where hand gates lead to the rear garden with an extensive paved patio adjacent to the house featuring exterior lighting and speakers. Beyond, the garden is laid to lawn with a stock fence boundary and a further decked sunbathing area where impressive views over Snape Castle can be enjoyed. This magnificent home requires an internal appraisal to appreciate the size and quality of accommodation on offer, the superb grounds and the versatile Dovecote.

On entering Snape from the east continue along the main street then bear right towards the Castle Arms, continue until the end of the village where the property can be found on the right hand side, before the castle.

Alternatively if approaching the property from Well drive into the village and pass Snape Castle, the property can then be found on the left.

Snape is a justifiably popular lower dales village of mixed architecture including a historic Grade I listed castle and picturesque stream running through the centre. There is a primary school, village hall, and public house in the village as well as a renown shop directly opposite Lyme Brook selling fresh fish and farm produce. Further amenities can be found in the market town of Bedale and cathedral city of Ripon which are both a short drive away. There are shops, supermarkets, weekly markets, public houses and restaurants in both along with schooling for primary and secondary ages. Ripon also boasts a cineme and the sought-after Ripon Grammar School. The A1 (M) is within easy reach and offers links to the business centres and motorway network of the region.
