Ealingheath Barn is a substantial traditional Lakeland stone built barn formerly used as a dairy with planning permission granted to develop and extend into a desirable four bedroom country home situated close to the picturesque village of Haverthwaite with approximately 217m² (1970ft²) of accommodation spread over three levels providing space to create a very comfortable family home with a flexible open plan layout. There are provisions made on the plans to create a good parking and turning area together with planning permission for a detached double garage/wood store, terrace sitting out areas and large terraced garden on the hillside. Included in the sale of the barn is 1 acre of woodland located opposite the property over the country lane with gated access and stone walled boundaries and enjoying views across the Rusland Valley and to Rusland Pool. The original barn building has a very traditional Lakeland design with the banked entrance leading via the barn doors onto the main floor, which has an elevated hayloft. Beneath the hayloft is a lower ground floor small shippon and joined to the rear is a concrete built lean to formerly the milking parlor.

One of the many attractions to this Barn is the peaceful location, situated close to the heart of the popular village of Haverthwaite and Bouth being within walking distance of local pubs and good access to the A590.
