CONTEMPORARY BARN CONVERSION HITS THE MARKET
Known as The Courtyard, the property blends old and new, with exposed beams, original brickwork and woodwork that reveal the building’s history, whilst the double-height glazed atrium is a 21st century addition that offers panoramic views and floods the family home with natural light.
The ground floor offers a fantastic newly fitted, 33-foot-wide dining kitchen complete with granite, leather-look worktops, and bifold doors opening directly onto a sun terrace. There’s also an impressive entrance hall, large lounge, cloakroom, utility room, office and a ground-floor snug, as well as a bedroom and bathroom that can form a guest suite.
Upstairs, there is a grand master bedroom with bathroom and two further ensuite bedrooms. The property also has a separate annexe complete with a double bedroom, living space and kitchen area, which offers the potential to generate an income.
The Courtyard offers underfloor heating, an integrated sound and lighting system and a super- efficient, carbon neutral wood pellet boiler, which was a £25,000 investment and now offers a generous government renewable heat incentive. Outside, there is a private sweeping lane leading up to the house, a Mediterranean-style courtyard and long garden with an orchard.
The former cow byre was transformed 17 years ago, by current owner and renowned local builder, Chris Watson, who specialises in creating interesting, bespoke homes for clients that often feature contemporary architecture.
He said: “It says a lot about this place that we have stayed so long because there has been temptation and plenty of chances to move and do other projects, but we have resisted until now.
“It’s rural and peaceful and a wonderful place to come home to after a busy day at work, yet it’s only a 10-minute drive to the A1M and M62 so really accessible.”
Paul Baxter, a director from Dacre, Son & Hartley said: “This is a stunning home that has been continually refreshed over the years and its industrial chic theme looks as fresh and exciting now as it did when work completed in the early noughties.
“It genuinely is a standout home and offers an extremely flexible layout, as well as a separate annexe, and the property benefits from being in a rural location, but still close to the motorway network, which is all very appealing to buyers.”
