Property Description

Full description

First time on the market for 12 years.

4 Bedroom Character Barn Conversion set in a total of 9 acres or thereabouts. Great internal living spaces, superb outdoor facilities including secluded hot tub and Equestrian facilities all in a spectacular setting. ***PART EXCHANGE CONSIDERED***This property is being offered to the market for the first time in 12 years. This delightful Barn Conversion is full of character, occupying a private yet not isolated position on the edge of the sought after West Pennine Moors.

Rough Lee Barn has really been taken to the next level by the current owners. Lots of eventualities have been considered and the property now offers outstanding internal and external living accommodation literally throughout the seasons. Plans have also been passed to further enhance the internal living space through the addition of bi-folding doors to the lounge and knocking through from the kitchen into the dining room to create a large breakfast kitchen/family room (Planning Application Reference 16/00785/FULHH).

Access is along a jointly owned and maintained driveway with the neighbouring Farmhouse. The property has the benefit of a very private position, almost turning its back on its neighbour, giving magnificent rural vistas to the North East and West.

Upon accessing the central gravelled yard the Equestrian facilities have its own parking area whilst round to the left is parking for the house itself.
Access is taken into the Main Hallway with vaulted ceiling, large barn door and stairs rising off to the first floor with cloaks cupboard beneath.

The Farmhouse Kitchen has been designed and fitted by Simpsons of Colne with Pippy oak units and complimentary granite work tops, along with trim double bowl Belfast sink, electrical 13 amp cream Aga with AIMS controls and a range of Liebherr appliances.

The kitchen is directly adjacent to the dining room. Planning permission has been passed to move the existing utility to a new build extension to then create a spacious through kitchen living space. At present the Dining Room has open rural views on three sides and is separated from the kitchen by the Utility Room with washer and dryer housing, and Cloakroom comprising W.C. with associated basin.

The two main reception areas include the Snug and the Formal Living Room, both of which share a double sided log burner.

Planning permission is passed for bi-fold doors which would further enhance the superb views from this room onto the grounds and surrounding countryside.

To the first floor can be found the Master Bedroom suite with Dressing Area at the entrance fitted with a range of wardrobes by Simpsons of Colne, a Balcony giving views over the grounds and an En-Suite Bathroom with 4 piece suite comprising freestanding claw foot bath, separate shower cubicle, w.c and basin.

The Second Bedroom is also a double and benefits from a range of built in wardrobes and an En-Suite, including large shower, W.C. and pedestal basin.

The remaining 2 Bedrooms share the Family Bathroom with bath, W.C., pedestal basin and separate shower.
Externally there are 2 distinct areas. Firstly the gardens and grounds give a superb array of outdoor entertaining spaces. The main gardens surround the house on 3 sides and are predominantly laid to lawn, with a variety of well stocked and mature beds. There are stone flagged patios, areas of timber decking, a large feature pond and small areas of woodland/copse. Within these entertainment areas can be found the Hot Tub accommodation complete with W.C. and potential for a shower to be installed. This leads directly on to the outdoor entertainment space.
There is also a Log Store and Workshop within the garden spaces.
The Equestrian Facilities occupy a separate gravelled yard with concrete apron to front and comprise 5 Loose Boxes, 3 of which are 12ft x 12ft, with 2 being larger. There is a Hay Store, Chicken Shed and associated run and a separate Middenstead. Just around the corner can be found a 40m x 20m outdoor all weather Charles Britton Arena which is close to the local bridleway network. The surrounding land is laid to grass and contains well maintained enclosures. Two Field Shelters are contained within the boundaries of the land.
Overall this is a unique opportunity in a popular and sought after location with excellent accessibility to the county’s road and motorway network and also to local services.
