Ash Barn forms part of the former Saddleworth Union Workhouse, nestled in the Dobcross hills above Saddleworth. Abutting open countryside, the property offers country living with all the benefits of a modern home - minutes from local villages, transport links and well regarded school catering for children of all age ranges. The property is an ideal purchase for a growing family who are seeking a safe environment for children to play, coupled with a rural community and country living.

The carefully planned build, was undertaken in 1996 and has been considerably improved and enhanced by the present owners to provide luxury, modern living accommodation in a superb rural setting. Running Hill Farm is a collection of homes on the edge of a wide valley, offering spectacular rural views, a feeling of peace and privacy along with the benefit and security of neighbours.

Ash Barn ocupies arguably the best position in the hamlet and has superb far reaching views.

The entrance porch is perfect for de-wellying and towelling down the dog. You then step into the spacious central hall which opens to the full roof height, with skylights and internal openings through to the long living area.

To the right is a breakfast kitchen, there is a long range of high-end, Siematic kitchen cabinets with claret doors, granite surrounds and a breakfast bar in front of a large arched window. The far end of the kitchen conceals a utility area and this great space has a full range of appliances.

The living room is a great space, measuring over 31 feet and perfect for the family and guests, it is partly open to the central hall and flows down into the sitting area with a great arched picture window and the fireplace encases a neat Jotul stove. There are double doors and a large internal window into the garden room, allowing the great views to be seen all the way from the kitchen. The garden room has wall to wall windows, skylights and doors to the patio, we think this room could be enhanced with bi-folding doors to create an inside & out space for the warmer months.

At the end of the central hall there is a double bedroom suite, ideal for overnight guests. The Travertine tiled en-suite has a frosted glass door and a large shower.

A long run of stairs leads up from the hall to a galleried landing set beneath a high ceiling with exposed beams and skylights. The main landing has access to two double bedrooms along with a crisp & contemporary Travertine tiled house bathroom which has a modern suite with a free standing bath. The master bedroom is a great space, it’s a long room with a high sloping ceiling with skylights, there is a low level window and one on the gable end to take in those views. A galleried landing runs from the main bedroom to a cosy bathroom which has mosaic marble tiles, a double ended bath, basin, loo, bidet and a shower.

A cobbled driveway provides ample parking and leads to a detached double garage and the front door. There is a raised & cobbled patio next to Ash Barn and another set within the garden, a great spot for a BBQ while taking in the views. The views gardens abut open Pennine countryside and are quite simply spectacular.

PLEASE NOTE: Planning Permission to increase garage with room above and small extension to lounge. Full details on request.
