A beautiful and unique barn conversion located between Settle and Kirkby Lonsdale that comes with an attached barn and shippon, which the home could be extended into, is for sale with our Settle office.

The Laithe is in a rural location approximately four miles outside the market town of Bentham and it also includes six acres of woodland.

In recent years the property has benefitted from a new biomass heating system and has been fully re-roofed, as well as having solar panels installed.

Downstairs there is a generous living kitchen with solid fuel stove and French doors to the garden, a utility area with pantry store, modern ground floor shower room and a spacious hallway with study area and access to the barn. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and a good-sized bathroom.

Tom Galloway, who heads up our Settle office, said: “This is a superb home that’s full of character features and offers huge potential. The adjoining barn is more than 50 feet long and 18 feet wide and the shippon is 65 feet long and more than 16 feet wide, so they lend themselves to a wide range of uses.

“Planning permission has previously been granted to extend the home into these buildings, although this has now lapsed, so buyers considering this option would need to reapply for it.

“Another big selling point is the property’s rural location, via a private road and part gated farm track, which is all surrounded by open countryside and offers glorious views, as well as having its own private woodland area, further adding to its appeal.”

Outside there is parking for several vehicles and a lovely walled cottage garden with views across open countryside. The six acres of woodland is located just down the field to the rear of the property and offers vehicle access.  

The town of Bentham has a thriving community with a railway station, shops, a doctors’ surgery, primary school, pubs, cafes and auction mart.

The Laithe, which is approximately 18 miles from Lancaster and 10 miles from Settle, is for sale with a guide price of £525,000. For more details and to arrange a viewing contact our Settle office on 01729 823921.
