Knipefold barn is a stunning and unique 5* property, which was converted by the present vendors approximately 10 years ago creating a spectacular, well proportioned and highly versatile three bedroom property with the accommodation spread over three floors. There is scope to the ground floor to create an additional bedroom if required. A perfect example of how a barn should be converted, using an excellent combination of traditional materials such as flagged floors and oak fittings throughout including beams, solid oak flooring, oak staircase, oak panelling and double glazed oak window frames together with quality modern appointments such as granite work top and under floor heating to the ground floor. The property has a stunning open plan kitchen/living/diner on the second floor to take advantage of the superb far reaching south facing country views. The property has the distinct advantage of a lift, allowing easy access to the upper floors for the elderly or disabled. Set in a beautiful position surrounded by peace and tranquillity well placed for endless fell and country walks from the door step. Knipefold Barn is presently a highly successful 5* holiday letting property, with the Good Life Cottage Company and is being sold with the majority of contents and all forward bookings.
