Our Settle office has sold a rural barn that overlooks Ingleborough, achieving over the asking price for the building, which has planning to be transformed into a three bedroom house and is now marketing another stunning barn conversion opportunity that’s generating plenty of interest.
After bringing Calterbar Barn to the market, we generated a huge number of enquiries and secured five offers. The barn is located in an elevated position with breath taking views across open countryside, close to the village of Clapham. Calterbar barn appealed mainly to buyers keen to retire to the area.
We are now marketing a second barn, which is just under a mile from Calterbar Barn, for the same vendor. Ingbergh Barn is on the market for £135,000. It’s a substantial detached barn which also has fantastic views of Ingleborough, with full planning permission for conversion into a superb four bedroom property.
Tom Galloway, who is the Settle office manager, said: “The chance to buy character buildings like these in the most idyllic of locations doesn’t come along often and we typically only market one every two or three years. The interest in Calterbar was phenomenal. People from all over the country were contacting us, and we had five buyers providing best and final offers.
“The views, the location and the stunning plans are what have really appealed, and we already have a huge level of interest in the second barn.”
Ingbergh Barn enjoys an enviable position on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and within the Forest of Bowland - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s also within easy access of Yorkshire’s famous Three Peaks. On the outskirts of Clapham village, which has a local shop, church, primary school as well as popular pub and café, the property is also within easy reach of Settle, Ingleton and Kirkby Lonsdale.
Once developed, the barn would have four bedrooms, a house bathroom and en-suite to the master bedroom. At ground floor level the plans allow for a superb open plan living/dining room, separate kitchen and utility room.
