Barn conversion near Penrith, Cumbria

Converted barn with flexible accommodation in Morland near Penrith in Cumbria

Three bedroom barn conversion with rural views on the edge of the Eden Valley village of Morland, Cumbria which is located midway between Appleby and Penrith

An 18th century barn, imaginatively converted in a “reverse” style,
offering well appointed and adaptable accommodation including sitting room with fine views, three double bedrooms and an excellent garage. It occupies a quiet situation on the fringe of the sought-after village of Morland.

Formerly a barn for the adjoining farmhouse (which shows a 1762 datestone), Helm View was converted in 1990. Since then, the present vendors have added the porch and conservatory and have completely rebuilt and enlarged the original garage.

The house has the advantages of sealed unit double glazing, electric central heating (on off-peak control) and adaptable accommodation with the potential for kitchens and shower or bathroom on each floor level, thereby creating the potential for a suite suitable for older children, dependent relatives, etc. Alternatively, the property is ideally suited for active retirement and for those who are not looking for a large garden.

Morland lies in the Eden Valley just 3 miles off the A66 between the towns of Penrith (7.5 miles) and Appleby (7 miles). The village provides primary school, community hall, playing field, traditional church and public house. Penrith and Appleby cater well for everyday needs, with railway stations (main line at Penrith, Carlisle-Settle line at Appleby), supermarkets, secondary schools, sports clubs, etc. This is a quite, peaceful and relatively unspoilt area of central north Cumbria, ideally located for exploring the fine Pennine hills to the east and the northern Lake District to the west. The A66 gives good access both to the M6 and A1.
