Centrally located in the sought after village of Bramhope and forming part of an exclusive "courtyard" style development of purpose-built apartments, this is a rare opportunity to purchase A self-contained ground floor apartment which is not purpose-built - but one of only two apartments created from the imaginative conversion of A former barn. This very appealing home in mature stone, has a degree of charm and character and is also individual in style and appearance, and is being offered with the advantage of immediate vacant possession and therefore no chain above. The apartment includes two bedrooms (master with en-suite shower room), and the dining hall, when, combined with the through lounge forms excellent reception space ideal for relaxed living and also for entertaining. The property has the further advantage of A valuable boarded loft style area offering excellent potential for a hobbies "den" or perhaps even a "home office" type space? There is an integral garage of good size, with the benefit of internal access to/from the apartment.
