A character home just right for lovers of horse and country life

This characterful conversion of a stone barn was completed 15 years ago by the current owners.

With five bedrooms and two reception rooms, the property is set in a private and elevated location within 2.66 acres, including equestrian buildings and a dry turnout area, all with stunning rural views.

Damas Barn offers a tremendous amount of character in a much sought after rural location, and has the added advantage of being set into an acreage divided up into handy-sized field enclosures, ideally suited for those purchasers with equestrian or lifestyle farming interests.

The property is a wonderful family home with an expanse of hand-crafted solid oak doors, built-in cupboards, wardrobes and kitchen units.

It offers privacy but not isolation, as the property is located within the small hamlet of Greenbank within the beautiful Wyresdale Valley on the edge of the Duke of Westminster’s Abbeystead estate.

Lancaster city centre is approximately 15 minutes drive away with junction 33 of the M6 Motorway being approximately 10 minutes. Both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales can be accessed within an hour.

Damas Barn is entered via a covered entrance vestibule leading into a wonderful character reception room with bespoke oak feature staircase, exposed beams and built-in cupboards.

The reception room leads to an open plan dining area with windows to the side elevation, and a door leads through to the sitting room – a lovely open, light and private room with superb westerly views over the garden and countryside beyond, plus a stone-dressed feature fireplace, stone hearth, exposed beams and feature length windows.

Off the reception room is a study and a further door leads to the bespoke handmade oak country style kitchen with its breakfast area and rear door, off which is the utility room housing a separate WC, the boiler house and the back door.

To the first floor is an open spacious landing area with feature exposed timber roof trusses, bespoke built-in cupboards, family bathroom, three good-sized double bedrooms and a well presented master bedroom suite with again features exposed roof trusses, a full length bespoke handmade oak wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.

Also off the landing is a further nursery or single bedroom.
