Bovil Barn is a fantastic, upside down house that offers plenty of space and character. The property is situated on the edge of the village of Newbiggin-on-Lune.

Newbiggin-on-Lune is a village in the Eden valley and is part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and about 4 miles from the market town of Kirkby Stephen. The village lies just off the main A685 route from Brough to Tebay having excellent travel links via road, and rail from Kirkby Stephen on the Settle - Carlisle line. There are excellent walks from the door step including a lovely walk to Smardale Gill Viaduct.

The ground floor comprises a large master bedroom with ensuite, a further two double bedrooms and a single bedroom. There is also a family bathroom, shower room and boiler/ drying room on the ground floor.

Upstairs, is an open plan living/ dining room with a kitchen area. This room features high ceilings with exposed beams and stone work, as well as an open fire and has exceptional views of the surrounding hills and fields. There is also a cosy snug.

The property benefits from double glazing throughout and oil central heating. The boiler was replaced 18 months ago. B4RN internet is in the process of being installed in the village and there will be a fibre connection to the house.

Outside, is a gravelled driveway providing secure parking for multiple cars. There is a stable block, currently used as a store and workshop and would make an ideal office. To the side of the property, is a small paddock amounting to around 1/2 an acre with roadside vehicular access.

Bovil Barn is a fantastic detached property that would make a great family home or investment property.
