Full description

An exceptional detached barn conversion located in a sought after rural setting. The property has been much improved and extended by our clients in recent times to create spacious and flexible 5 bedroom accommodation over 3 storeys. The highlight of the property being a breath taking lounge which is two storeys in height with a high vaulted ceiling.

The Old Barn - This historic former barn and cottage was originally converted circa 1980 as a 2 bedroom property. Our clients purchased it in 2002 and have remodelled it into the spacious family home that it is today. The property was extended to the side adding the garage and 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom. In addition to this a work room / studio has also been added at the rear of the building.

The property is presented to a high standard throughout with quality fixtures and fittings. Our clients have upgraded the gas central heating system and added solar panels to the rear extension. The windows are all sealed unit double glazed with hardwood frames. The property benefits from a monitored alarm system and CCTV.

It is connected to mains water, gas and electricity. Drainage is to a septic tank on the neighbouring land behind the property. Externally the property has a good sized parking area in front with space for a number of vehicles, gardens extend to the side and rear.

Perhaps the propertys key asset is its location and rural views. Crosland Edge is a small hamlet of farm cottages and barn conversions located approximately 1 mile from the village centre of Meltham, close to Blackmoorfoot Reservoir and the small village of Helme. The property itself enjoys breath taking rural views to the side and rear, particularly from the lounge.
