Location: Middle Barn forms part of a small development of three properties tucked away just beyond the quiet rural hamlet of Halfpenny situated to the South of the market town of Kendal. Leaving Kendal on the A65 proceed past the Punch Bowl Inn at Barrows Green and continue over the hill; take the second turning left just before the new stone bus shelter. Follow the lane keeping right at the hamlet of Halfpenny continuing along to the next group of dwellings and the property can then be found on your left. The garage for Middle Barn is the last one on the right hand side of the lane and there is ample parking and turning to the rear of the barn.
Description: Owned from new by the vendors for almost twenty-five years, this splendid barn conversion offers the new owners a home that is ready to move into and enjoy. Laid out over three floors the living space offers generous flexible living, ideal for the growing family or those working from home. The bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the ground floor together with a large utility room allowing the principal living rooms on the upper level to take full advantage of the open countryside views. The kitchen is very well fitted and equipped and the main house bathroom is state of the art. To complete the picture are the splendid second floor rooms, again with fine open views, that are currently in use as an office with adjoining bedroom/sitting room and a most useful attic room that offers clear potential for further development if required. The gardens are easy to manage; there is ample parking and the garage has another multipurpose garden area beyond. There is to be no upward chain and early possession is available.
