Detached barn conversion in Low Catton, East Yorkshire
Offers over £285,000
East Farm Barn is a hidden gem: a spacious, detached, brick and pan-tile barn conversion, with delightful gardens and private access, in the East Yorkshire village of Low Catton.
Currently undergoing extensive renovation, East Farm Barn offers flexible and characterful accommodation, all on one level. At present it is arranged with two bedrooms in the main house, with a third bedroom/study in the attached annexe
This detached conversion retains a lot of the character of a building believed to be in excess of 150 years old, whilst incorporating those features desired by modern lifestyle and taste. The result is a home that feels both characterful and modern at the same time, without compromise to either. The extensive renovation has already included new doors, windows and full insulation. As such, the property offers the buyer the opportunity to personalise the design, style and finish to the kitchen, bathrooms etc.
Part of a traditional farmyard cluster of buildings (now comprising three dwellings each with their own private access), it is situated in a semi-rural, edge of village location, yet just 8 miles from the historic city of York, with its excellent road and rail links.
(Note: all at one level, with no steps, allowing easy access to all rooms and outside to the terrace)
