Barn conversion which offers plenty of space and character

DON’T underestimate the potential in a simple barn conversion, as this is a prime example of a perfect one. Converted in 1989, its striking features and natural stone sit in an idyllic stretch of countryside near a river and just a stones throw from Bilsborrow and with Preston and Lancaster within easy driving distance.

Ideal for families and couples alike, the barn has a character feel with spacious layout and superb quality internal fittings that include mahogany internal doors and open stone walls. With five bedrooms, including a master suite of a superbly spacious bedroom with stylish walnut effect fitted wardrobe to one wall providing useful storage space as well as an en suite bathroom, this home is marvellous for family living. One of the bedrooms is currently occupied as a study and has double glazed windows and front elevation of pleasant outlooks.

The kitchen is the hub of this family home and boasts a wealth of space to accommodate a dining table and chairs. There are extensive Shaker-style wall and base units with under-unit lighting and complimentary wooden work tops over and Russian oak solid wood flooring. Integrated appliances include a Rangemaster electric cooker with gas hob, extractor hood, fridge and dishwasher. There is an inset double ceramic sink unit, beamed ceiling and central heating radiator. A double glazed window to the rear elevation overlooks a stunning garden and double glazed patio doors give access to the formal gardens and flag stoned patio area, which is ideal for Alfresco dining. It also has conifer style hedging with archway leading through to a further generous garden, which is laid to lawn.

The property offers a stone detached triple garage block with adjoining stable and workshop. The annexe has its own entrance via external stairs and is ideal for someone wanting to work from home. It could also could be used as a children’s play space as there are three rooms complete with power and light. The garage benefits from an electric door and a manual up-and-over door. Additionally, there is a paddock to the side of the property.
