Full Description:


West Barn is accessed via a private drive leading up through the land from Hollins Lane overlooking the nearby village of Utley. The vibrant and diverse town of Keighley is just 1.5 miles to the south offering a wide range of services and amenities including shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, a leisure centre and schooling for all ages. There are regular services by rail to Skipton, Bradford and Leeds and good access to the wider road networks to North and West Yorkshire and east Lancashire.

West Barn together with the farmhouse and two further barns form the farmstead High Hollins Farm. The farmstead is no longer in agricultural use and the former barns are now in the process of conversion to residential use. Once complete, the farmstead will create an exclusive rural community of four dwellings in total. The two detached buildings have already been sold leaving just West Barn and the adjoining substantial farmhouse with annexe cottage.

West Barn is a traditional semi detached stone barn which was granted planning permission by Bradford Metropolitan Council on the 30 January 1998 Ref: 97/03405/FUL for change of use to a residential dwelling. Following the grant of planning permission and subsequent Building Regulations, a significant start has been made on the conversion.

The majority of the structural work has been completed including connection to a new drainage system, mains electricity and borehole water. Internally, floors have been installed and the proposed rooms laid out in studwork on the first and second floors, although there remains a degree of scope for prospective purchasers to alter the layout should they wish.

Based on the current layout the property will provide four bedroom family accommodation over three floors briefly comprising the following;
