NOW REDUCED !!!! Imagine coming home to your stone built barn conversion. Imagine relaxing in a huge living room with exposed roof oak beams that have been there since the 1600's. Imagine a family kitchen with the AGA cooking away - Well stop imagining and come and see it in real life - Here it is !

The Long Barn is the best of both worlds. It's in a lovely rural setting with views out over the valley towards Wentworth Castle yet it's only a short drive onto the M1. It's only a few minutes away from the rail station in Barnsley along with all the shops and entertainments or the shopping experience at Cortonwood or Meadowhall Shopping Centres. It really is a great location and with no upper chain, you can move in as soon as you like!

The Long Barn is part of a small community of four separate dwellings that originally made up the farm houses and buildings. They date back to the 1600's and possibly even earlier and are all Grade II listed buildings. They surround a gravel courtyard which, no doubt, was once the farm yard.

The Long Barn has been cleverly converted into a living accommodation that works well with both the modern need for comfort and efficiency along side the character that a property of this age can provide. There's ancient oak beams yet modern electric garage doors. There's exposed stone wall features yet a modern AGA gas fire range. It's a real mix of old and new that works really well to make a very special home for you.

    The English can do great conversions of their ancient barns, and this one is a special example — spacious, yet cozy; traditional yet comfortable. Great information from Real Estate people.

    Located in sort of north-central England, it is beautiful countryside. Anybody want to move to England?

    I usually find barn conversions awkward and not anything I’d want to live in but this might be the best I’ve seen!

      My thought as well. Most barn conversions in the US start with a huge wood-framed space that needs to be “chopped up”, so it’s very different. The original stone and timber building is human-scaled and more amenable to living spaces by adding a few partition walls. The conversion is very well done and highlights the beauty of the ancient structure.
      Many of us have ancestors from Europe that slept with the livestock in buildings like this in feudal times.

    I have lived in England for 12 years now. Best decision I ever made. Yorkshire is absolutely gorgeous. This barn conversion is a steal.

      I love Yorkshire SO much! I saw the Timothy Dalton Wuthering Heights when I was in my young impressionable years, and fell totally in love with him and Heathcliff and Yorkshire! Then found James Herriott and All Creatures Great and Small, and was able to see more of Yorkshire. But my favorites were the Yorkshire calendars. I know I bought them for over 15 years! Absolutely beautiful place! I can only dream of England, but when I do, it’s always Yorkshire!!!!

        You should watch Last of the Summer Wine. Its a half hour comedy, that takes place, and was filmed in Yorkshire. I think it was the longest running comedy on British tv. Lots of wonderful scenery! My local PBS station carries it- I don’t know if Netflix etc carries it.

          I haven’t heard of that show; will keep my eye out for it. I’ll never forget my absolute SHOCK when I was watching Hyacinth one day, and saw ”Nellie” from Wuthering Heights (whom I had not seen for YEARS) was Daisy on there! (My GOSH quite the different characters, Nellie and Daisy!) LOVE the British comedies! (That reminds me of the first time I saw the credits on House, and saw that House was Hugh Laurie. I didn’t believe it; thought they had gotten it wrong! We ALL knew HL is British, and House CERTAINLY was as American as they come! What a shockeroo THAT was! I had never heard a Brit do a Yank accent like that before! (Of course it is not shocking that we can imitate THEIR accents–I’m pretty good at that myself–but vice versa??? Nope!)

    Perfect, just picture perfect. I would move there in a heartbeat. Rustic yet modern and cosy, totally my type. Beautiful beams, I love the old doors with old black hinges

    I LOVE this place. When can I move in? I can see me writing and painting and being VERY happy. This is just what I need.

    I like this as well as everybody else does. Nicely done — it has rooms instead of one huge space with furniture arranged into “rooms.” Thus, cozier. Its age is apparent but it’s modern and convenient at once. Yorkshire is one of my favorite places in the world. Would love to move there.

    You had me at AGA! Too bad it’s so difficult to move to the UK (all the Commonwealth, actually) because there is some absolutely gorgeous countryside. This looks like a great place to call home.

    Does anyone know what the name of that purple bush in the first photo is? Very pretty. i like the plan they’ve used here, except I’d like to see some additional way to get into that last room that is only accessible by the 2nd staircase. But an upstairs hall to it would take away footage from the other rooms. This place seems so full of light-glad to see they’ve added windows that I bet the original barn didn’t have.

      I am pretty sure the purple flowers are wisteria. It’s a beautiful plant, but depending on where you live, can easily become an invasive menace. I imagine if you are far enough north to get killing frost every year, it would be much easier to control. Here in Florida, it can pull down outbuildings and threaten trees.

      Karen, it looks like wisteria to me.
