This outstanding semi-detached barn conversion enjoys an enviable rural setting on the outskirts of the sought after village of Thurstonland. It was converted circa 1997 and is offered for sale for the first time since then. The property is grade II listed and retains a wealth of original features with flexible accommodation featuring 2 large reception rooms and a stunning hall with galleried landing, 3 bedrooms, 2 with en-suite, bathroom and study upstairs.

About the Property
The property comprises an attractive semi-detached barn conversion located within a courtyard of cottages and converted barns formerly associated with the adjacent Blake House Farm. It is of traditional stone-built construction with internal timber framing under a stone slate roof.

The property is grade II listed and we understand that it was originally a dairy dating back as far as the 17th century and converted to residential use circa 1996. It occupies a pleasant rural setting down a private driveway which is shared with 5 other properties which were all converted as part of the same development scheme.

It is entered through a glazed door into the reception hall which is open to double height and features exposed roof trusses to the high angled ceiling, stone flagged floor and stairs leading to the galleried landing. A glazed door with windows to either side lead into the large lounge. This is a particularly good sized room featuring exposed timbers and a glazed door out to the rear garden. The dining room can be accessed from the lounge or hall and is again of a good size. It features stone stairs to the 3rd bedroom and is situated adjacent to the kitchen. The kitchen has space to accommodate a small table and chairs and features fitted units with granite worksurfaces and breakfast bar. There is also a side entrance hall / utility with pantry cupboard and a downstairs WC.

The galleried landing is undoubtedly one of the houses best internal features as it overlooks the hall and showcases the wonderful exposed beams. A glazed partition on the landing creates a generous study area taking in the beams. From this landing there are 2 bedrooms: the principal bedroom features exposed beams to its high angled ceiling, fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom 2 is also a double room and is served by a shower room next door. The remaining bedroom is accessed via the stairs from the dining room and is again a double with its own en-suite.

The property was converted to a high standard with many original timbers preserved and exposed. These were complimented by additional high quality joiner made timbers and quality fixtures and fittings. It has a gas central heating system and double glazed windows. The property is connected to mains water, gas and electricity, drainage is to a septic tank shared with the other properties within the courtyard.

Externally there is a double garage with 2 up and over doors and generous parking to the side of the house. To the front of the house there is a small low maintenance garden and borders, enclosed by a dry stone wall. At the rear of the house there is a good sized enclosed garden with lawn, 2 paved seating areas and summer house with decked seating area. It enjoys pleasant views over the adjoining farmland. The ownership of the property also includes a share in Blake House Farm Ltd which is responsible for the maintenance of driveway area, septic tank and also a block of the adjoining land.
