A fantastic opportunity to obtain an attractive four bedroom detached barn conversion with several extra facilities, which dates back to the 18th century, enjoying a picturesque position within the Lune Valley. Set out over two floors, this spacious conversion boasts character and charm, whilst enjoying many of its original features including trusses and beams throughout.
The private, gravelled drive and parking area has plentiful space for parking and leads around the side of the house to the extremely spacious and useful garage/workshop, which could be used for an abundance of interests or work commitments. At present, the current vendor has utilised the space by incorporating a large climbing wall to the rear but the size, space and possibilities of this workshop are endless. The majority of the outside space at Back Lane Farm is in the form of delightful, natural and mature gardens that provide excellent foliage and colour throughout the year. Bordered by well maintained hedges and trees, the gardens also feature many areas for al fresco dining. Located just a short walk away from the village of Tunstall, Back Lane Farm is conveniently located to the close by market town of Kirkby Lonsdale with easy access to the M6.
The property has been refurbished in the 1980’s and with its office plus very large workshop has considerable potential for activities such as running a small business from home or keeping classic cars.
The main entrance hall offers an excellent welcome for guests and residents as the glazed aspect and spiral stone staircase allows a perfect introduction to the theme of the property and is flooded with natural light. Off the hall leads you into three spacious double bedrooms, all of which benefit from timber double glazed windows and down lighters. The house bathroom is fitted with a four piece suite comprising a WC, pedestal wash hand basin, double ended bath, shower cubicle and towel radiator.
The Cosy lounge area enjoys views out to the front of the property, with original beams and exposed stone fireplace housing a woodburning multi fuel stove set on a flagged hearth. Leading into the farmhouse kitchen which is well fitted with an extensive range of Oak wall and base units, two separate islands with tiled worksurfaces and a variety of integrated appliances including a Lacanche multifuel range cooker with two ovens and a 5-ring gas hob, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Set within the large kitchen is a dining area with vaulted ceiling and exposed trusses and beams creating the perfect place for entertaining.
Through from the dining area leads into a large home office space, benefiting from external access which makes this the perfect place for a small business use or working from home. Just off the farmhouse kitchen is a useful utility area which houses the boiler and has plumbing in place for a washing machine and space for a dryer with the added benefit of a large stainless steel sink and drainer with views out to the rear garden. Off the utility room leads into an exceptionally large and useful open room which has access out to the garden, currently utilised as a home gym with exposed trusses and beams overhead, maple flooring and exposed feature wall, but convertible to a playroom. Extra bedroom or granny flat.
The stone spiral staircase leads to the first floor with floor-level lighting into the extremely spacious open plan sitting room which is full of character and charm. A stunning feature to this delightful room includes an open fire set into a raised feature fireplace and exposed timber beams and trusses. With windows to both the front and back of the property and also access out to the roof, this room enjoys views across the gardens and to the countryside beyond. From the sitting room, this leads into the Master Suite with external access and benefits from a large dressing room with a range of built in wardrobes and a stunning four piece ensuite bathroom, including pedestal wash hand basin, bath, shower and WC.
The gardens and grounds at Back Lane Farm are of generous size, yet easily manageable with a number of planted raised beds, productive vegetable plot and a walled storage area for machinery or the like. There is an array of flat lawn areas which surround the property, providing the perfect places for entertaining and al fresco dining. The detached workshop really is a superb building with a solid concrete floor and the option to utilise this space for either motoring interests and hobbies, or the potential to create a small business from the property, subject to the usual consents.
