Kiln Hill Barn
Make your way to the original barn frame that supports two large barn doors, which swing open to unveil an entrance point like no other.
Exposed Lakeland stone leads you under a sheltered porch, where three custom glass panels converge to form the front entrance. Step inside to a wide and welcoming hallway, where the expansive pitched roof, adorned with original exposed beams, fills the area with a sense of spaciousness and light, complemented by the rugged Lakeland stone walls. Flagged stone extends underfoot, leading to a wall of glass that provides access to the living area.

Freshen up in the cloakroom on the right featuring WC and washbasin, before discovering the utility room next door. Home to the washing machine, with sink and countertop, it's a brilliant area to complete household tasks. Continue ahead through the door where another storage area and access point to the home can be found.

Retrace your steps back toward the entrance hall, peep into the storage cupboard on the left, before entering the kitchen.

An array of wooden cabinetry lines the walls above and below the countertops, offering plenty of space and storage.
