Homes converted from old barns are, if not exactly ten a penny, a common enough proposition nevertheless.At first sight Highfield Barn on Aberford Road, Stanley, to the north of Wakefield, is a typical example, until a closer inspection reveals it to be a carefully-designed new build with its mellow bricks, small windows to the rear and classic full-height central arch incorporating picture windows and doors to the front.That extensive glazing helps generate light and a sense of spaciousness inside, which is especially apparent in the dining room and open-plan dining kitchen-family room, and again on the first floor galleried landing.Also on the ground floor are a lounge, play room and utility room, WC and store, while on the first floor are four bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, the family bathroom and laundry room.Hi-tech features such as wired-in surround sound and underfloor heating combine with log-burning stoves across interior space totalling more than 2,800sq ft, while the property stands in two acres of securely-gated grounds offering wide-ranging views.Highfield Barn is on the market at £1,500,000.
