    About this property

    • Mill Hill Barn was originally the threshing barn, granary and cart sheds of Mount Pleasant Farm, dating from mid-19th century. The entire structure has been taken down brick by brick and re-constructed using mix of original cleaned and clamp bricks under a new roof of reclaimed Welsh slate, with the conversion completing in February 2021.

      New commissioned green oak king post trusses and beams throughout with a limed wash finish offset by walnut stained oak handrails detailed with turned stainless steel rods and Walnut stained oak open tread staircase.

      Whilst maintaining a traditional appearance externally, internally the property embraces high speed fibre broadband, Sky satellite service, Sonos sound system, Control 4 programmed lighting, Aritco 5 person passenger lift, under floor heating throughout powered by air source heat pump, water softener, Anthracite anodised aluminium double glazing, contemporary door furniture and electric matching socket plates.

      Natural stone flooring in the generous entrance hall, with its eye catching double height exposed brick wall and bespoke solid oak staircase, leads in one direction to a study, well-balanced sitting room and guest suite, all overlooking the beautiful gardens and in the other direction to a flexible living, dining room adjoining the kitchen, finished in rustic pine flooring flanked by double height glazing providing access to the courtyard garden on one side with contrasting views of the Yorkshire Wolds and hard landscaped front on the other. The kitchen has been thoughtfully designed and offers extensive range of cupboards in mix of painted and contrasting Wenge timber finish under Caesarstone worktops with waterfall side panels, Neff appliances, four oven electric controllable Aga with 'foxed' mirror feature splashback, double Novy extract vented to outside, Quooker instant boiling water tap.

      The quality of finish is evident around every corner, feature lighting, matching the bespoke door, power/switch plates contrast with the anodised aluminium which bathe every room in copious amounts of natural light. With four double bedrooms over two floors, three with very stylish en suite bathrooms and the other served by a luxurious family bathroom, all finished in a unique and highly desirable style, this is a deceptively spacious home suited to families of varying sizes and ages.

      The property is approached via a half mile long tarmacked driveway serving two other neighbouring properties, Mill Hill Barn being at the end accessed via electric timber gates, opening to reveal a large parking and turning area finished in bonded gravel. Directly ahead is a separate garage block with three bays, two with electric sliding doors the other an open car port. The gardens extend to the west and have been thoughtfully landscaped to draw the eye from all angles, interspersed with specimen trees and colourful planting best enjoyed along a brick paved path way which cuts through the centre and ends at a series of wildflower meadows framed by open countryside as far as the eye can see.
