IT TAKES a certain kind of vision to look at a building and see how it can be converted from its current use into something else. In the case of The Paddocks at Swainby it's much more than a conversion, though – its owners have transformed it from a commercial building into a stunning contemporary family home.

Completed to a very high standard, the conversion includes Karndean floors, ak veneer doors, underfloor heating on the ground floor

as well and triple glazing throughout.

Briefly, the ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance hall with a stunning oak and glass staircase, spacious lounge with log-burning stove and bi-fold doors to the patio and gardens, cloakroom, large utility room with a range of fitted units, playroom/snug, a bedroom with an en-suite shower room and, at its heart, a light and airy contemporary kitchen diner. Home to a range of fitted appliances and a central island – plus bi-fold doors to the garden – this room is perfect for entertaining.

An internal door leads through into the garage, off of which is a useful office space.

Upstairs are a luxurious family bathroom, store rooms and five bedrooms, including the master bedroom with an en-suite shower room and large floor-to-ceiling windows to the rear provide stunning views to the rear of the property.

While the accommodation is without doubt the highlight of The Paddocks, its setting comes a close second thanks to its proximity to Northallerton, Stokesley, the North York Moors and the A1(M); its views over open countryside and the Hambleton hills, and its good-sized gardens with ample parking plus a grass paddock which extends to around 1.5 acres and would be perfect for keeping horses as there is space for stabling.

The Paddocks is on the market at a guide price of £650,000.
