A beautiful barn conversion with cracking views over the Wharfe Valley
York View Barn sits in an enviable position on Ilkley Moor, with far reaching views across the Wharfe Valley. The current owners purchased the barn just over six years ago and have created a wonderful family home with wellproportioned rooms which have been carefully considered to take advantage of the views across the Wharfe Valley. Not being listed, there are large windows, all of which are double glazed, to enhance the light in the property throughout the day.
Entering through a good-sized hall, is the coat and boot room. There is a shower room leading from the hall and a downstairs single bedroom, which would also make an ideal hobby room or study.
Leading through the large double doors is the heart of the home. The large sitting room with glazing on all four walls is a fantastic space which is flooded with light throughout the day. To maintain the character in the property, an exposed stone behind the woodburner makes for an attractive period feature. This room benefits from LPG underfloor heating beneath the wooden floorboards.
From the sitting room, leading through a set of double doors, is the garden room or summer room. Although this room also has a woodburner, with French windows opening onto the garden, this is an ideal space for entertaining or as a more formal dining room in the winter months.
The kitchen is extremely well fitted with a large gas Rangemaster cooker. There is a good array of solid oak wall mounted and base level units, complimented with granite tops. There is space for a dishwasher and washing machine and also for a wine fridge. A handy back door leads onto the enclosed courtyard. A large walk in pantry, fitted shelves, completes the kitchen.
A handcrafted staircase with oak panelling leads to the first floor. On the landing, there is large airing cupboard and a large glazed window to take advantage of the views. There are three fantastic double bedrooms, all of which benefit from having separate bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have their own ensuite bathrooms, with the master bedroom benefitting from a free-standing slipper bath and separate power shower. All the bathrooms have underfloor heating and heated towel rails.
To the front of the property is the garden, with far reaching views across the valley beyond. A post and rail wooden fence separates the garden from the neighbouring farmland which is grazed with sheep. There is ample space for several cars on the driveway. Outbuildings include a wood store and shed.
The hamlet of Burley Woodhead is well positioned on the foothills of Ilkley Moor. The nearby village of Burley in Wharfedale has a fantastic array of artisan shops, a supermarket, a church and a good primary school. Nearby Menston has a direct line to Leeds which offers a mainline station to London. The market town of Ilkley is a few miles away and offers a wider range of amenities and facilities. There is fantastic walking and riding in the area.
From Ilkley, continue on the A65, taking the 3rd exit at the start of the bypass signed to Burley in Wharfedale (Ilkley Road). Continue onto Station Road past Burley in Wharfedale Railway Station up the hill where Station Road becomes Moor Lane. At the top of Moor Lane turn left onto Moor Road and continue for about two miles past The Hermit Inn and turn right onto Green Lane (single track lane). Continue on Green Lane to the top of the lane, where York View Barn can be found on the left hand side. A For Sale sign has been erected at the bottom of Green Lane.
