The sale of the barn offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a highly desirable rural home - one which exudes the character of the original building combined with the expectations of modern living with more than a touch of style! Award winning architects Halliday Clarke advised when the property was subject to a comprehensive refresh in 2010 and their influence is clear to see, particularly in the huge central living area - open to the eaves, with the original arched barn door openings now flooding the area with light and providing delightful views across the property's sheltered garden towards stunning countryside beyond.
The ground floor provides considerable flexibility, with two additional spacious reception rooms to either side of the central living area. There is also a very impressive breakfast kitchen with high quality cabinetry, topped off with Corian working surfaces and housing a broad inventory of Miele appliances. A study, boot room, pair of cloaks and a utility complete the ground floor. To the upper level there are four double bedroom suites, all with either a dedicated shower or bathroom, and with a pair of bedrooms featuring dressing areas with fitted wardrobes.
Externally the barn is approached through a substantial remote controlled gate which opens to reveal level gardens, mostly laid to lawn, with shrub planting and a charming raised ornamental pond to the southern side. The expansive gravel driveway provides ample parking and leads to the garage block which also includes a gym / studio with kitchenette and wc off, whilst to the rear is a covered outdoor living area with feature fireplace - an ideal spot for alfresco dining.
A short drive leads to the former Victorian spa town of Ilkley, the 2022 winner of The Times ''best place to live' award and which provides a vibrant mix of high street and independent stores, an excellent choice of restaurants, a local cinema and theatre as well as a medical centre. Sports clubs cater for a broad variety of interests from rugby to cricket, tennis and golf. The surrounding countryside and rugged moors offer many an opportunity for rural pursuits including fell walking, road and mountain biking. And yet for the commuter there are excellent links into the region's business centres including Leeds, Harrogate and Bradford. From the former there are regular connections to London Kings Cross, whilst Leeds Bradford International Airport is just some 12 miles distant from the property.
Mains electricity is installed. Water is from a shared private supply and drainage to a private system. Heating and domestic hot water are provided by an oil fired boiler. Electric under floor heating to the four en-suites and kitchen, with ''wet' under floor heating to the living area of the central hall.
From the centre of Ilkley, proceed down Lower Brook Street crossing the main river bridge. Turn left, and bear left past the Golf Club towards Nesfield. Continue along the country lane, through the village, down the hill and then turn left at the T junction. The barn will be seen to the left hand side (second driveway).
