Woman's Land Barn, Dent, Sedbergh, Cumbria

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4

A character barn conversion, completed to a very high standard with exceptional elevated views down the idyllic Dentdale Valley. Located in a desirable rural setting with gardens, parking, garage.

Prior to completing the extensive refurbishment the Vendors sought architectural assistance with the design of the property.  The finish and standard of craftmanship is a compliment to the time and effort that went into the conversion. The ground floor offers plentiful living and working areas in a free-flowing format and the downstairs/bedroom study can be neatly sectioned off from the lounge with its own private entrance and patio area when hosting.

A shared access drive leads up to Woman's Land Barn which benefits from an electric gated entrance and large gravelled parking area with spacing for 4+ cars. The light and welcoming front entrance leads to a hallway with a lounge area beyond with shuttered windows. The lounge has a beautiful seagrass flooring laid in 2018 and a 16 Kw Woodwarm log burner to compliment the underfloor heating found throughout the lower ground floor. Leading off the lounge is the downstairs bedroom / study which has raised steps and access to an external patio area. The lounge also leads to the dining room which has oak flooring and external access to an outdoor seating area.

The exquisite kitchen was designed and fitted in 2017 by Linda Joseph Interiors of Kirkby Lonsdale in a farmhouse style with feature electric Aga with LPG gas hobs and local designer Jo Vincent splashback. To complete the kitchen there is a comprehensive range of appliances including integrated dishwasher and fridge along with further beer/wine fridge beneath the central island and waste disposal system. The kitchen and entire front of the home has a beautiful limestone flag floor which was locally sourced and laid in 2015.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a third entrance and access to the spectacular sunroom. With bi-fold doors at both sides leading out to 2 of the 3 patio areas, this is an ideal area to catch the morning, afternoon and evening sun.

To complete the ground floor accommodation there is a useful utility also designed by Linda Joseph interiors, finished to the same style with sink, washing facilities and downstairs WC.

The 1st floor offers 3 further double bedrooms (one of which is en-suite) along with a luxurious family bathroom which benefits from a generously proportioned bath, rainfall shower, heated towel rail and electric underfloor heating.. The under-eaves storage and American oak wardrobes in the bedrooms have been fitted by a local joiner and are in keeping with the high-end finish and attractive appeal of this charming barn conversion and the traditional wooden ladder which will be left in situ provides a nostalgic reminder of its previous use.

For those looking to work from home, the property benefits from access to the B4RN hyper-fast broadband. The Vendors have also installed a 20Kw pellet Boiler with 250L water tank ensuring that water can stay heated for up to 2 days. The pellet boiler heats both the radiators and the under floor heating. To compliment the inexpensive pellet boiler the Vendors have gone to great lengths to maximise heat retention with the installation of insulated plasterboard throughout the ground floor and insulated floors.   Woman's Land Barn was re-roofed only 8 years ago and incorporated a new 'breathable' membrane throughout.

Whilst many properties in the area have natural spring supplies which can be temperamental through the Summer months the Vendors have installed a private borehole and retained a right to the historic spring.

The barn sits neatly within the sizeable curtilage of the property and extends in total to 0.71 acres or thereabouts to include lawned garden areas, 3 neatly positioned patio areas to catch the morning, afternoon and evening sun, a small wooded area and summerhouse with panoramic countryside views of the valley below, perfect for afternoon or evening entertaining. There is a useful garage and yard area located to the right of the entrance to the property providing useful storage space in a discreet location.
