Situated in a quiet, picturesque hamlet just outside Kirkby Lonsdale, this substantial stone built barn has approved 'prior approval' for conversion from an agricultural building to a most delightful three bedroom dwelling.

Set in approximately 4 acres of pasture land and with stunning panoramic views of the surrounding Yorkshire Dales this barn will be attractive to developers or individuals who wish to create a sympathetic, beautiful barn conversion in this highly sought after location. The plans, drawn up by renowned local architect's The Wright Design Partnership, detail a bright, semi -contemporary space with versatile accommodation and well planned external areas. The aspect throughout is spectacular, with far reaching views and varying horizons.

Leck, soon to be part of the Yorkshire Dales National park, is a small hamlet located to the East of Kirkby Lonsdale a half a mile from the A65. With a small cluster of houses, Leck has a delightful church, a primary school, and an excellent village store ideal for popping for a pint of milk and the papers on a leisurely Sunday morning, both within walking distance. The fantastic bar and restaurant at Hipping Hall is also only a mile away. Kirkby Lonsdale itself is a superb, historic market town; filled with a vast array of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants; there is an excellent atmosphere throughout the year in this popular little town. Practically, there is also a post office, doctors, dentists and a supermarket. An excellent choice of schooling is on offer locally, Sedbergh and Giggleswick Independent Schools alongside the highly regarded QES afford some of the best secondary education in the North West. The Barn is also well placed for travel and commuting; with Lancaster being 16 miles, M6 J36 8 miles and the west coast mainline at Oxenholme within 13 miles.

The plans can be found with Lancaster City Council planning ref number: 15/00267/PAA or for further information please contact the office.

The Wright Design Partnership, WDP, was formed in 2000 by Erica Wright and Allison Powell, who, endeavoured to create an architectural practice which was renowned not only for creating quality architecture, but also for being friendly and approachable. They have undertaken a great deal of outstanding projects both locally and further afield and would be delighted to assist the purchasers of this unique barn going forward.
