Swindale Head Barn is a peacefully situated character property in the quiet, yet accessible, location of North Stainmore in the North Pennines AONB.

This former barn has been sympathetically converted, offering a beautiful home which boasts a wealth of charm and character. The original features that have been retained give this property a characterful, yet contemporary feel. The property is well insulated and benefits from oil central heating and newly fitted windows. B4RN ultrafast broadband will be connected imminently.

On the ground floor, there is a spacious conservatory and welcoming entrance hallway which leads to the beautiful kitchen diner with the stunning handmade pitch pine kitchen being the main feature of this spacious room. Furthermore, on the ground floor, there is a good double bedroom, a modern shower room, and effective study, which could also be used as a fourth bedroom.

The first floor comprises a further two double bedrooms, the main house bathroom and a large light lounge, with dual aspect windows framing the superb views.

Externally, the property is hugged by a sloped garden, lovingly planted with native trees and wildflowers, which attract a variety of wildlife. There is an attached single garage which would make an ideal workshop or storage space. This also has potential to be converted into a sizable home office or studio, subject the necessary planning consent.

The property boasts some of the most breath-taking views. The front view extends from the enigmatic Nine Standards, via the Howgill Fells, to the Whinfell Ridge. Mallerstang Edge and Wild Boar Fell are also prominent and between them the iconic peaks of Ingleborough and Whernside show, some thirty miles distant.

Viewing is essential to appreciate fully the location and charm of this property.
