It can be difficult to make a building look anything other than what they were before their conversion – a quaint chapel, agricultural building or pub – but that's certainly not the case when it comes to Mill Granary.

Once a working 18th century stone-built granary – as you could probably guess from its name – Mill Granary is now an extremely stylish family home that offers few clues its past life thanks to a thoughtful, and top-quality, conversion.

Briefly, the accommodation comprises a central entrance hall, with a shower room and large open-plan dining kitchen and seating area to one side and a bedroom and the living room with a contemporary gas fire as its focal point to the other.

The heart of the home, the dining kitchen is home to solid oak floors, contemporary fitted units with granite worktops, a large wood-topped central island and a range cooker, while the seating area at the other end offers a light-filled space to relax thanks to a large domed window that allows natural light to flood in. Original wooden beams – A-frames in the case of the kitchen – and a large stained glass window add characterful touches to the room.

Upstairs on the first floor are a contemporary family bathroom with walk-in shower and three more bedrooms, including the master bedroom with a modern en-suite bathroom with roll top bath.

Mill Granary is situated on a plot which extends to approximately 1.6 acres of gardens and meadow combined, and has a south facing aspect with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

The gardens are laid mainly to lawn and a children's play area, while a terrace which runs the length of the house includes both a decked seating area and a paved patio area perfect for outdoor entertaining or dining on.

There are also two outbuildings which lend themselves to a variety of purposes, including use as stables or an office or indeed as secondary accommodation, subject to obtaining the relevant planning permission.

The Mill Granary is half a mile from Ingleton and is on the market at offers in the region of £850,000.
