Location/Description:- This is a truly unique opportunity and a one off find. Barn Hey is Grade II listed and has been in the vendors family for well over 100 years. Latterly having been sympathetically improved and extended to a exceptional standard, ingeniously combining the character and charm of the original building with the requirements of todays modern buyer using only high quality workmanship and materials including underfloor heating and enviable contemporary kitchen and bathrooms. The property is tastefully and neutrally decorated throughout and provides a wonderful, spacious family home just requiring furniture!
Dating back to 1704 this former farmhouse oozes charm and history. Freshly painted inside and out (Weathershield) and with features such as deep set double glazed sash windows with window seats, traditional latch handle panel doors, original leaded glass work, period fireplaces, thick stone walls and exposed beams all combine to create a fascinating, warm and welcoming home. Pleasing rural views, glimpses of Morecambe Bay and delightful, lovingly tended gardens complete this perfect picture. In addition, for those with equine interests, there is the possibility, by separate negotiation, of a small paddock (just over 1 acre) very close to the home!

To reach the property proceed out of Grange in the direction of Allithwaite, passing the Pheasant Inn on the left hand side. Where the road narrows slightly, Barn Hey driveway can be found shortly on the right-hand side (before heading down the single file hill).
