This barn conversion is a stylish and high-spec conversion with a wealth of family-friendly features that offers a rural retreat combined with the benefit of being well-placed for all amenities.

Part of an attractive cluster of properties converted from the original farmsteading, the current owner has created a comfortable home where contemporary touches complement character details.

The landscaped garden backs on to open countryside and has seating areas to take advantage of the far-reaching views.

The house has a porch with coat cupboard while the entrance hall has another coat cupboard plus understairs storage and a cloakroom.

An office is off to the right and on the left is the dining sitting room which runs the full length of the house and covers more than 30ft by almost 26ft.

It is ideal for social gatherings yet easily zoned for more cosy spaces. It has windows to either end and a central stone fireplace with stove.

A wooden floor complements painting ceiling beams and double doors open out to the veranda.

The kitchen, reached from both the dining lounge and utility, also has a door leads to the veranda and has benefited from an update providing sleek base and wall units with LED lighting, quartz worktops and glass splashbacks. Appliances include a Siemens induction five-ring hob and integrated dishwasher, inset sink and a vertical radiator.

Upstairs are four double bedrooms, the smallest of which is currently used as a dressing room.

The en-suite master bedroom overlooks the back of the house with views across the courtyard to the fields beyond.

The second bedroom also faces out to the courtyard and the third chamber at the front of the house has a view over the garden to rolling countryside beyond.

Outside are beds and lawn, two parking spaces and a garage.

The property at Kinns Barn, New Hutton, Kendal, is for sale at £499,950 from Milne Moser, tel. 01539 304034.
