The Barn is a fabulous barn conversion set in the heart of the countryside with the most impressive long distance views. Converted from an original farm building around 20 years ago, the 5 bedroom property with two loft bedrooms has an abundance of storage and separate stand alone office. Car parking is positioned to both the front and rear of the property.
When the current owners embarked upon a conversion of an original farm building, they were keen to ensure that the architecture was sympathetic to the landscape and the existent dwelling. With large barn windows to the front and rear, the property retains many quirks and character that you would expect to encounter in such a structure.
The main entrance is immediately onto Yorkshire Stone and a cloakroom resides to the side with half turn staircase leading to the first floor.
The kitchen with dual sided breakfast bar has a fabulous eye catching Falcon 5 ring range oven with gas hob. Arranged around high gloss dove grey cabinets, the kitchen has a stunning granite work surface and Yorkshire stone window sills. Further integrated appliances include a Hotpoint microwave oven, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. The high quality French stone tiled flooring flows into the utility room with the same high quality cabinets, plumbing for a washing machine and a sink. A door to the garden from the kitchen integrates the interior and exterior perfectly, especially on those social gatherings for gardens parties when the weather is being kind.
Perfectly placed next to the kitchen is the dining room with double opaque doors and floor to ceiling glazing, a most important aspect in a property of this location.
Stepping down into the sitting room you are greeted with a homely vision of traditional and contemporary décor all equipped with wooden flooring and multi fuel cast iron stove with inglenook fireplace. Three windows draw your eyes out towards the landscape whilst under stairs storage is one of many crevices positioned around this property for suitcases and seasonal decoration. A door conveniently leads to the exterior, admittedly never used but there, none the less.
As you embark upstairs the half turn staircase brings you to a vast boarded storage space running the length of the sitting room, lighted for convenience.
The master bedroom inevitably faces the fantastic valley and is furnished with high quality fitted furniture. With bath, double walk in shower with Mira electric shower, combination unit with counter top wash basin and back to unit w.c.
A further two bedrooms are located on the first floor that easily accommodate king size beds and they have exclusive use of the house bathroom with bath with tile tub surround, counter top wash basin, back to unit w.c and a corner shower with Mira Play electric shower. Fully tiled the room also includes a towel radiator.
The attic bedrooms are accessed via a staircase located either side of the large landing. The attic space has been separated by stud walling which can easily be removed to create a fabulous games room or opulent master suite with dressing room and spacious ensuite facilities.
The property has undergone significant improvements which includes a new boiler, office roof, doors, windows and contemporary kitchen.
Externally the property boasts a stand alone heated office and off road parking to both front and rear with spacious child friendly gardens and the most admirable views of a Yorkshires Finest listing. Located in the Shibden Valley, the property is at most only a 5 minute car journey from well regarded schooling and Halifax town centre is only around 13 minutes.
EXTERIOR AND OFFICE The property positioned in the Shibden Valley lies down a little know country lane fringed by farming land and spectacular views.
An escape from the hustle and bustle of busy life is assured with this rural setting but close to hand in only around 13 minutes from the property lays Halifax town centre which offers an abundance of amenities.
The lane brings you to a cobbled driveway to the front of the property with the lane continuing to the rear where more extensive parking spaces can be found.
From there access to the large lawn safely secured with high stone walls and wrought iron fencing makes a perfect setting for young families and those with pets. A Yorkshire Stone paved patio creates plenty of spaces for large garden furniture for al fresco dining and sun bathing!
The stand alone office is a great building with Cat 5 broadband and recently refurbished roof to guarantee longevity. The outbuilding detached from the main house gives a required sense of going to work but with home comforts seconds away, this building is a perfect addition to the main dwelling.
