At The Yorkshire Press, we love a good barn conversion and it’s safe to say there are plenty of them in Yorkshire. Usually surrounded by glorious Yorkshire countryside and decorated to complement original beams and stonework, there’s always something special about a converted barn in God’s Own Country. Every now and then, however, we stumble across one which truly stands out from the rest. This is one of those occasions.
Set within one of the most sought-after areas of Halifax, this gorgeous cottage offers spectacular views across the Shibden Valley. Its unique and interesting layout provides spacious accommodation and each room has been decorated to a high standard.
The large open plan ground floor is absolutely stunning and is open to roof height, where there’s a spacious mezzanine floor which could be used for all manner of purposes.
A great deal of thought has been put into this conversion and the result is a spacious and modern family home which is absolutely bursting with character. Beautifully presented throughout with versatile living spaces, this is a real treasure of a home and, even though it has only just come on the market, it’s unlikely to be available for long. Marketed by SW Property and priced at £340,000, internal viewings of this property are advised in order to fully appreciate just how much this property has to offer.
