Externally the property benefits from excellent private parking, an attractive and easy to manage patio garden and a superb stone built detached garage equipped with light, power and remote controlled roller door.

The property is subject to a Section 106 Local Occupancy Agreement which has been officially relaxed with consent of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority to now include potential buyers who either live, work or have children at school within the ADMINISTRATIVE AREA OF CRAVEN DISTRICT COUNCIL AND/OR THE YORKSHIRE DALES NATIONAL PARK. Cases where potential buyers previously lived within this area and have a proven need to return to the area may also be considered subject to conditions. Potential buyers are encouraged to discuss their individual circumstances with the selling agents in the first instance for full clarification and reassurance. Please note this 106 agreement has been 'upgraded' in recent years to a more modern and far less restrictive version than the 106 agreement that was imposed when the property was originally converted. Detailed information relating to the Occupancy Criteria is provided in these particulars further below*

Kirk Lea Barn occupies an enviable level location in the heart of Long Preston, peacefully situated away from the main road overlooking the village green within the conservation area and with all local amenities nearby.

Lavishly equipped in accordance with an unusually high specification whilst exhibiting meticulous attention to detail, this excellent property was newly converted circa 2012 by Messrs Sutcliffe Construction Limited, an award winning local building firm with a first class reputation.

Surrounded by beautiful open countryside on the edge of the scenic Yorkshire Dales National Park, the picturesque village of Long Preston is served by a range of local amenities including a primary school, Church, public houses, a sub post office/general store, a bus service and the great advantage of a railway station.

The business centres of West Yorkshire and East Lancashire are within comfortable daily commuting distance whilst the historic market towns of Settle and Skipton are circa four and twelve miles away respectively providing extensive shopping and recreational facilities together with excellent secondary schooling.



Equipped with gas central heating, sealed unit double glazing, partial underfloor heating, modern LED lighting and a security alarm system (inc. garage), Kirk Lea Barn offers considerably more than at first meets the eye and is therefore very strongly recommended for inspection in order to be believed and appreciated, comprising in further detail:
