One of only a handful of traditional barns in the Yorkshire Dales National Park that has planning consent to be transformed into a beautiful family home, surrounded by acres of grass pasture and meadows, is for sale and is expected to attract high levels of interest.
Ladywell Barn is located at Bridge End between Threshfield and Grassington and is being marketed by the specialist agricultural division of Yorkshire estate agent, Dacre, Son & Hartley.
The planning consent was granted last month for the barn to be transformed into a home with kitchen, dining and living areas, as well as a utility room and WC on the ground floor, with three bedrooms and a house bathroom on the first floor.
Externally there are two parking spaces and the barn, along with 3.11 acres of land, is being sold with a guide price of £250,000. An additional 7.57 acres of adjoining grassland is available in a second lot, with a guide price of £100,000.
Ian Cox, who heads up the firm’s agricultural and development team, said: “Ladywell Barn is a substantial building of traditional stone construction beneath a stone slate roof, which are both synonymous with the Yorkshire Dales and there’s no doubt it will become a very special home.
“As part of the planning consent’s Section 106 Agreement, the occupation of the dwelling is for either short term holiday accommodation or the principal residence of a person or family with an established need to live in the National Park for a variety of reasons, so it will appeal to lots of buyers. Plus, it’s idyllic location, just a short walk from both Threshfield and Grassington, will further enhance its popularity.”
The barn enjoys a prominent roadside location and the approved planning application includes a new access point off the minor road leading to Linton on the eastern boundary.
