Full description

A detached stone-built barn conversion dating back to 1886 enjoying a peaceful private rural location with 8 acres of land and enjoying splendid open views over the Calder Valley. This characterful home offers generously proportioned living accommodation, complemented by three double bedrooms (with potential to add a 4th bedroom on the second floor), a newly installed en-suite shower room and a spacious house bathroom. The barn is bright and airy with an abundance of windows including the original stone arched entrance making a full-height picture window.

The property is accessed via the entrance hall with an adjacent boot room, leading through to a sitting area featuring the original barn window with galleried landing above. Glazed folding doors lead through to the dining room, which can be opened to create one large entertaining space. There is an elegantly proportioned sitting room with an open fire, dual aspect windows, and an archway through to the dining room. 

The bright, modern breakfast kitchen has windows to two elevations taking advantage of the views. There are a range of cupboards with a central island unit and breakfast bar, a Stanley range and an integrated dishwasher and fridge. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a useful utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and external access to the rear courtyard, and a two-piece cloakroom.

The first floor is dominated by the impressive galleried landing overlooking the sitting area below and has exposed stonework to the external wall with a feature window. The master bedroom is a generous sized double enjoying delightful views from the dual aspect windows and has a superb newly installed en-suite shower room and a large walk-in wardrobe. There are a further two double bedrooms, the largest of which has a loft hatch with drop down ladder to access the second floor. The bedrooms are complemented by a spacious house bathroom.

The extensive second floor has exposed beams and trusses, narrow slit windows and a skylight window, and could be developed into two additional bedrooms, subject to planning.

The property is Grade I listed and is noted for the Jacobean stone dog kennel on the gable wall.

The property is approached via a private lane leading to the driveway, parking and outbuildings. There is a large walled garden which is laid predominantly to lawn with mature shrubs, flowers and trees, a pond and terrace with views over the valley. The front of the barn benefits from the fantastic open views, and there is access to the former stables and land, which comprises one large field of approximately 8 acres. In the rear courtyard is a block of outbuildings providing garaging and storage, and the option to create further accommodation, subject to planning.Situation
