DETAILS Location
The barn is set in open countryside and approached along a private track off Thistle Hill to the south of Knaresborough and within comfortable commuting distance of Harrogate, Leeds and York by road or rail. Excellent day to day amenities in Knaresborough are 5/6 minutes drive with Harrogate’s extensive facilities within 4 miles and there is good accessibility further afield via the Harrogate Knaresborough southern bypass less than a mile to the south.

This steel framed modern agricultural building was constructed in 2010 and takes full advantage of its setting surrounded by open countryside with extensive southerly views towards Follifoot and Rudding Park. Planning permission was granted by virtue of a class Q consent for change of use of barn to dwelling house granted in November 2020. Given its original design, the property proposed is of contemporary industrial styling with wide central hallway leading to an open plan living and kitchen area in addition to a separate living room. There are 4 double bedrooms with 3 bath/shower rooms and the property sits at the north western end of its plot that extends overall to some 7.5 acres. The farmland to the north and west is not within the vendors ownership.
