The Last Barn in Richmond?

5th April 2011

George F. White has announced the opportunity to buy what they say is most probably, one of the last remaining traditional barns available for conversion in Richmondshire. The stone barn at East Farm near Patrick Brompton, North Yorkshire is on the market for £260,000 and has full planning permission to become a wonderful 4 bedroom home in the heart of lower Wensleydale.

Barn conversions offer so many possibilities – they are the chance to buy a rural home in an area where a modern house would never get planning permission. They provide the opportunity to create exactly the living space you dream of, in the materials you want, mixing reclaimed timber with state of the art glass windows and stainless steel kitchens. Barn conversions have always been hugely sought after and never more so than now, as an unfinished project with full planning permission is as rare as hen’s teeth.

Sam Johnson from George F. White agrees, “This is one of the last barns of its kind still left for conversion in Richmondshire. Over the last 20 years most barns have already been bought and updated so this is now an almost unique opportunity. The property is a traditional L-shaped stone built barn and when finished its new owners will have over 3000 square feet of living space with panoramic views over one of the most beautiful areas of Wensleydale towards Penn Hill. Their home will have large gardens and private parking and there is also the possibility of renting a nearby field for grazing.”

Located just outside the village of Patrick Brompton the farm will offer the best of rural living and easy access to the main centres of the North East and beyond. Part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Wensleydale provides an enviable quality of life, mixing an agricultural backbone with newer artisan food companies, tourism businesses and artists and craftspeople. The landscape is equally diverse offering everything from high fells and waterfalls to riverside meadows and is popular for walking, bird watching and rural pursuits. The A1(M), A19 and A66 are a short drive; the main East Coast London to Edinburgh rail line at Northallerton is nearby as is Durham Tees Valley Airport.

The barn at East Farm is on the market for £260,000 for further information or to arrange a viewing, please contact Sam Johnson on Tel. 01677 425301
