SOLD (subject to contract)



Low Barn, Malsis, Sutton in Craven, BD20 8DS


Constructed in Yorkshire stone with a grey slate roof, Low Barn was sympathetically converted approximately 13 years ago, originally being part of a traditional farmstead but now forming a superb 3 Bedroomed family home with the additional benefit of 2 large offices which are to be used in compliance with an EMP9, a local planning policy which provides an opportunity for prospective purchasers to run a business from the comfort of their own home.

The property retains many traditional features including part exposed stone walls, barn door windows and lovely exposed beams & roof trusses but is also served by the more modern comforts of gas fired heating and sealed unit double glazing, the whole being presented to a high standard of finish and ready for immediate occupation.

Situated within the fashionable parish of Malsis alongside the well respected Dog and Gun country public house, the property is very well placed within walking distance of a choice of excellent schools (including South Craven Secondary which continues to receive outstanding Ofsted reports), also having excellent network links for those looking to commute to the larger business centre’s in Leeds, Bradford and East Lancashire.
