Oxenthwaite Cottage is a beautiful property situated in Barras, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The market town of Kirkby Stephen is approximately 4 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.

The interior of the house is full of character, with original features complemented by contemporary touches.
The accommodation is extensive, set over two floors and with two staircases. There is scope to create an annexe at one end of the property.
On the ground floor, there is a beautiful kitchen with a Rayburn, snug, pantry, dining room, garden room, two sitting rooms, a utility room and a shower room. Upstairs, there are five bedrooms and a family bathroom.

With plenty off-street parking, and an outbuilding for extra storage, this home caters to all your practical needs. The outside space is amble and has been landscaped to create several different gardens. A former paddock approximately 1/3 of an acre, has been lovingly planted with trees and shrubs by the present vendors and is a haven for wildlife.
Situated on a raised deck in the middle of the garden, the beautiful summer house with power and lighting, offers a fabulous spot to take in the long distance views.
The side garden has a lawn, established flower beds and two good size patio areas.

The potting shed, garden store and detached barn provide plenty of storage space. The barn has been partly converted and offers studio space. With the correct permissions, this could be converted further to create a self-contained annexe.

Oxenthwaite Cottage would make an ideal family home, it would also suit for active retirement. A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the views!
