LIKE most barn conversions 1 Meadow View may not have had much scope to change on the outside...but inside is another story completely.

Designed with modern family living in mind, it has, at its heart, a dining kitchen which is fitted with granite-topped hand painted wall and base units, a Belfast-style sink and a central island incorporating a breakfast bar at one end and a bright and welcoming seating area at the other. Facing the garden this spacious room has three large arched windows, one of which includes a central door opening onto the garden, while at the other side are two further small windows.

Also on the ground floor are the entrance hall with two full-height double glazed windows, utility room, cloakroom and a large and beautifully-presented living room with a multi-fuel stove, luxury vinyl tile flooring and access to the garden via a door in one of its two arched windows.

Upstairs are the family bathroom and four bedrooms. These include the master bedroom which is light and airy thanks to three windows, one of which is a picture window boasting stunning views over the garden and countryside beyond. This room enjoys the benefit of a dressing room and a contemporary en-suite shower room.

The property sits in an excellent-sized lawned garden which, together with a paddock, extends to approximately 0.8 acres, and includes a block paved driveway which provides parking for three cars and a garage.

Number 1 Meadow View, which is situated on an exclusive development on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Piercebridge, is on the market at offers in the region of £550,000.
