Full Details

This deceptively spacious 4 bedroom barn conversion is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the peaceful village of Yealand Redmayne. The original barn dates back to the mid 19th century and was converted by well regarded developers, Russell Armer, in 2000.

This created a small cluster of unique homes set around a private courtyard, enjoying beautiful far reaching views across the open fields to the front of the village. Croft Bank sits within a large portion of the original barn, set across three storeys with high vaulted ceilings, generously proportioned rooms and an overall bright and airy feel. It enjoys beautiful elevated views, including a glimpse of the distant Ingleborough Mountain, and an abundance of character with original exposed trusses and ceiling beams. To the rear of the property there is a beautiful patio style garden and access to the private drive and detached single garage. This home would be suitable for a range of buyers whether that be families, those of semi-retirement age or those looking to work from home with the benefit of B4RN hyper-fast internet connection.

Located within the centre of Yealand Redmayne, Croft Bank offers the benefits of a rural outlook within the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as the convenience and accessibility of the M6 Junction 35 just 5 minutes drive away. Yealand village has a quiet community centred around a wonderful primary school with the added benefit of being well placed within the catchment area for the highly regarded Lancaster Grammar Schools, Queen Elizabeth School in Kirkby Lonsdale and Dallam school in Milnthorpe . A recently refurbished pub offers a delightful place for families and friends, and neighbouring towns include the market town of Carnforth to the south, Milnthorpe to the north and the City of Lancaster which is just a 15 minute drive away. All pose a wealth of amenities with a plethora of local shops, cafes and restaurants. The West coast main line also runs through Carnforth train station providing regular rail connections only a short drive away.

The front of this stone built barn conversion is picture perfect, with the large coach archway in the centre of the building leading through to the parking area. Flower beds sit at the top of the small curved stone wall as you approach the front entrance, with a neatly planted shrubbery front garden. As you enter into the property you are greeted by a flood of natural light in the entrance hall which has a galleried landing over looking the lower ground floor and arched barn doorway now filled with glazing. The adjacent window creates a perfect snapshot over the fields that stretch beyond the property and there is a useful understairs storage cupboard. Double doors open in to the living room that boasts generous proportions and a bright dual aspect over the front and rear through quality sash windows. Despite the lofty room size, there is a cosy and welcoming atmosphere created by the gas stove that is set upon a stone flagged hearth with an exposed beam lintel.

The stairs lead down from the entrance hall to the lower ground floor where there is space for occasional furniture within the sunny lobby, set in front of the rear barn arch which is now fitted with full length glazing and a glazed external door looking into the garden. There is as a further understairs storage cupboard here as well as access to a walk in cloaks cupboard with hanging space and a separate WC. The hearty kitchen of the home is also set on the lower ground floor and again boasts generous proportions with charming exposed ceiling beams. There is further external access here to the rear garden, with convenient access to the parking area and detached garage. Within, the kitchen is fitted with a matching range of solid wood shaker style units running along the outer edges. To the centre of the room and set in front of the range cooker, there is space for an informal dining setting. It is easy to see how this space would become the heart of the family home, a place where all the family can connect at the end of a busy day. Appliances include the Leisure range set within a tiled inglenook with a gas hob and heat plate. There is also an integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Adjoining the kitchen is a large utility room with further storage and space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Furthermore, leading on from the utility is a fantastic walk-in laundry room with shelved drying space.

From the ground floor entrance hall, stairs also lead up to the first floor where there is again a galleried landing and beautiful exposed trusses to the vaulted ceilings. The character increases the further up you go in this home, with the first floor offering a show of exposed ceiling beams and framework in every room. The elevated position also provides some fantastic views over the fields that stretch out in front of the village, reaching as far as Ingleborough Mountain in the Yorkshire Dales. The master bedroom enjoys the best of these views as well as good proportions and an ensuite bathroom complete with a P-shaped bath with shower over. The family bathroom briefly comprises a fitted bath with shower over. The remaining three bedrooms are all of double proportions to include the fantastic fourth bedroom that is a versatile space sitting a top of the coach arch of the barn. This large space could easily be split into two bedrooms if required or would make for a great home office, enjoying a sunny dual aspect with large velux windows.

The outside space of Croft Bank is ideal for those with busy lives, proving relatively low maintenance with a selection of mature shrubbery, whilst still providing a vibrant show of colour in the spring and summer time. The rear garden is enclosed by low bearing stone walls and trellis that creates an open outlook over the surrounding grounds. A paved path leads up from the tarmac parking area to the lower ground floor entrances. There is a lovely paved seating area set under a wooden pergola that is laced with a productive grape vine. The parking area affords space for up to two vehicles as well as access into the detached single garage which provides an additional space as well as plentiful extra storage.
