Duck Pool Barn offers a truly superb 4 bedroom family home in a beautiful setting. An abundance of exposed oak beams, lintels, feature stone walls, an impressive entrance hall with vaulted ceiling, wrought iron staircase. Double garage, double car port, ample parking and landscaped gardens. ER 'D'

Duck Pool Barn was converted by the current owners in the late 1990's and offers a truly superb family home in a beautiful setting. There is an abundance of exposed oak beams and lintels, feature stone walls, an impressive entrance hall with vaulted ceiling and wrought iron staircase.

The accommodation enjoys a traditional layout, with a lounge and separate dining room, games room, office and large farmhouse style living kitchen and utility room at ground floor level. To the first floor are four double bedrooms, the master with en-suite facilities and a house bathroom. There is excellent outside space too, with the benefit of a large double garage and car port to house two vehicles to the side. There is also a building to the rear which has been fully insulated and has power and light, (originally the bull pen when this was a working farm!), but could easily be utilised as office space, home gym etc.

The landscaped gardens are extensive, with large lawned area, pond and mature trees and shrubs. There is also a large patio seating area. The gardens are a definite highlight of this superb property and we have no hesitation in recommending an early interior inspection.

Travelling from our Grange-over-Sands office, continue up the hill taking the first exit on the mini roundabout onto The Esplanade. Continue out of Grange up Risedale Hill, bearing right at Jack Hill corner. Continue passing Allithwaite and onto Flookburgh. Take the right turn at the Chemist corner into Station Road and continue into Cark. At the Engine Inn bear left onto Low Row. At the end of Low Row you will see Cark House on the left, continue passing Cark House taking the next left over the bridge. The main entrance to Duck Pool Barn is next to Cark Farm in the courtyard on your left.
