Standing in land and gardens extending to circa two acres whilst enjoying an enviable and truly remarkable elevated rural position commanding the most spectacular long distance panoramic views over the surrounding open fields and countryside and across the valley, this enchanting three bedroom detached stone barn conversion certainly represents a rare and exciting opportunity and benefits from generous private driveway parking, a large stone built detached double garage and a range of beautiful internal character features including exposed beams, trusses and stonework.
Certainly requiring a first hand inspection in order to fully appreciate the many attractive qualities this imaginatively converted Grade II Listed character home has to offer, the property would be ideal for those with small-holding interests with the land being very neatly arranged with a separate croft to the front, all being enclosed by traditional dry stone boundary walling and with virtually all outdoor space benefiting from the stunning open south easterly aspect, surely possessing some of the finest views available within the local area.
Internally this exceptional home offers a well thought out layout with rooms of good proportions throughout including a particularly spacious living room with magnificent stone fireplace, solid fuel stove and the impressive original arched opening taking advantage of the incredible open aspect to the front. There is a delightful dining kitchen, also having spectacular views, whilst featuring exposed beams and trusses and a traditional 'Heritage' multifunction range cooker, also providing space and water heating. Adjoining the kitchen there is a useful store/pantry together with a further cloakroom leading to a modern fitted ground floor WC.
To the first floor a landing with beautiful latched internal doors and original exposed trusses leads to three well planned bedrooms and a stylish modern fitted bathroom with three piece white suite incorporating shower over the bath. The accommodation benefits from oil fired central heating, sealed unit double glazing and a range of high quality bespoke internal joinery, cleverly designed to perfectly complement the rustic charm and character that this wonderful converted barn has to offer. Externally, in addition to the ample private parking and large detached double garage/workshop with lighting, power and alarm system, there are delightful gardens including a particularly generous stone flagged patio area to the front providing a superb outdoor space to sit and enjoy the remarkable open aspect. The land to the front also includes an impressive mature sycamore tree whilst the gardens incorporate a range of timber sheds together with a substantial timber racing pigeon loft/aviary which could be adapted to suit a variety of other uses.
The Outbarn has not changed hands since it was originally converted by the current vendors circa 1992 and was historically used to stable horses, with the area to the side of the barn being originally the site of a former 17th Century Inn. Although now demolished, being approximately where the current garage is situated, there are still visible remnants of the original inn walls and foundations together with an external opening in the ground at the rear of the garage that leads to what is believed to have been the original vaulted cellar providing a particularly interesting feature.

The nearby towns of Keighley, Skipton and Colne are only circa fifteen minutes driving distance away.
