Mouthlock Cottage and Maranatha Cottage is a fantastic opportunity to create one large house or renovate two cottages in a beautiful location.

Barras is a small hamlet on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The market town of Kirkby Stephen is approximately 7 miles away and offers an excellent range of facilities and amenities including primary and secondary schools, supermarket, doctors surgery, train station, cafes, and much more. There are also excellent road links from the M6, A66 and A1 to the nearby towns and cities.

Mouthlock Cottage is a currently laid out as a 3 bedroom family home. The ground floor accommodation comprises a dining kitchen with a Rayburn, family living room with an open fire, utility room and downstairs WC. Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms all with fantastic views of the surrounding hills and fells and a family bathroom.

Maranatha Cottage requires complete internal renovation but offers plenty of space and scope. Downstairs, is a utility/ entrance room, dining kitchen and family living room with an open fire. The property has two staircases to the first floor. One leads to two double bedrooms, these could be reconfigured to create a bedroom and ensuite.

The other staircase leads to a further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The staircase to the second floor opens up onto a large room that would make a fabulous master suite with ensuite and dressing room. Opposite Maranatha Cottage is a detached garage, with a store room at the back. The garage has electric and lighting.

Outside, is a cottage style garden with a good range of plants and shrubs. The rear garden is used as a vegetable garden.
There is plenty of off-street parking next to the lane at the side of the properties. The rear garden has vehicular access from the lane and cars could also be parked here.

Both properties have solar panels installed on the roofs. The roofs were replaced when the solar panels were fitted which is approximately ten years ago. The properties use what they require before the excess electricity is returned to the grid.

Mouthlock Cottage and Maranatha Cottage is an ideal opportunity to have a family home with investment property alternatively would be great for multi-generational living/ dependant relatives.

A viewing is highly recommend to appreciate the space and options these cottages offer.
