A stunning transformation of a Grade II Listed Dales barn group into a unique contemporary country home, in an AONB with unopposed views over Nidderdale's spectacular open countryside.
Ingleby Grange is an outstanding detached barn conversion, set in a tranquil hillside position encompassed by just over 6 acres of gardens and grounds. The property offers the very best of country living with a contemporary twist, many of the rooms boasting incredible views across the neighbouring Nidd valley, less than a mile from Summerbridge and just 10 miles from Harrogate Town Centre.
Having been meticulously and sympathetically remodelled and renovated by the current owners, using only the highest quality fixtures and fittings, the property is truly impeccable and showcases the best in modern architecture and insulation standards. Much of the property has the benefit of underfloor heating and smart lighting, and care has also been taken to maintain the original character and integrity of the buildings which still retain many of their original features. The property is wired for an integral sound system in the living room, kitchen, family room and terrace. There is an oil fired central heating and new wooden windows throughout.
The main house incorporates two original stone barns which have been skilfully and imaginatively connected via a purpose built lower ground floor set into the natural slope of the land, comprising a bright and spacious family room, cinema and guest bedroom or home office. On one side and occupying an entire barn, is a fabulous contemporary Roundhouse Design kitchen with large island and generous dining area with vaulted ceiling showcasing the striking oak 'A frame' trusses and a large picture window/doors framing some outstanding views. On the opposite side is a sizeable and versatile living space with feature fireplace at one end and reception area at the other, the entire space having a quality oak board flooring. Completing the ground floor are adjacent utility and boot rooms alongside the entrance and there is a ground floor bedroom suite.
An eye-catching bespoke staircase with solid oak treads and hand crafted steel balustrades leads down to the lower ground floor and rises to the first floor, where there are a further four double bedrooms, all with luxury en-suite bath/shower rooms, each with underfloor heating. In all the extensive accommodation is ideally suited to family living and entertaining.
Externally, the property is approached via a sweeping driveway guarded by an electrically operated five bar gate, beyond which the drive splits, one spur leading to a large parking area for several cars in front of the garage/stable block, the other leading down to the main house and cottage and studio where there is additional parking.
The garden wraps around the buildings and is laid predominantly to lawn with a large South and West facing sandstone patio leading from the kitchen flanked by a planted flower bed. The remainder of the land is made up of lawns and paddock area to the south and west bound by well maintained dry stone walls. The guest cottage and studio have designated garden areas, each with stunning views and on the western flank, close to the valley floor there is a timber breeze house perfect for entertaining.

This is one of the most innovative and thoughtful conversions of period stone barns I have seen, the perfect balance of period architecture and contemporary design, situated in a fabulous stretch of countryside.Ed StoyleProperty agent
