THIS con­verted barn is a high­spec­i­fi­ca­tion con­ver­sion with an imag­i­na­tive lay­out drawn from both tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary de­sign.

The em­pha­sis is on sus­tain­abil­ity and the house clev­erly com­bines el­e­ments of so­phis­ti­cated tech­nol­ogy with low en­ergy us­age.

It boasts so­lar ther­mal pan­els and a 1,400-litre Ak­vaterm ac­cu­mu­la­tor tank which is a store for heat and pro­vides do­mes­tic hot wa­ter at mains pres­sure.

Heat is sup­plied from the ex­ist­ing biomass dis­trict heat­ing sys­tem. The whole build­ing has high lev­els of in­su­la­tion, pri­mar­ily wood­fi­bre boards, hemp and sheep’s wool.

The prop­erty has over 5,000 sq ft of ac­com­mo­da­tion, in­clud­ing an ex­ten­sive of­fice suite.

It also has an im­pres­sive dou­ble-height re­cep­tion hall, draw­ing room, sit­ting room, mez­za­nine play­room, cloak­room, large kitchen break­fast room with pantry, two bed­room suites, two fur­ther dou­ble bed­rooms, fam­ily bath­room and gar­dens set in an acre of land.

Silpho is an un­spoilt ham­let hid­den on the edge of North York Moors Na­tional Park which en­joys a beau­ti­ful ru­ral set­ting with stun­ning views to the coast, the moors and the York­shire Wolds.

The ap­proach from the south is via the breath-tak­ing Forge Val­ley which runs north­wards from the A170 Pick­er­ing to Scar­bor­ough road. DAT­ING from the 1700s, Spring Hill Barn en­joys glo­ri­ous views down the val­ley to­wards the York­shire her­itage coast­line.

The ap­proach to the prop­erty is stun­ning and the barn lies in an el­e­vated po­si­tion out­side the coastal vil­lage of Fylingth­orpe.

It has over 2,000 sq ft of ac­com­mo­da­tion, which is beau­ti­fully de­signed, with two large re­cep­tion rooms, a kitchen break­fast room, laun­dry room, three bed­rooms and two bath­rooms.

Out­side, there is a drive, am­ple park­ing and a gar­den that in­cludes a va­ri­ety of trees such as rowan and birch, a small bridge over a wa­ter­course and a pri­vate, raised ter­race per­fect for al-fresco din­ing. Be­hind the house is a 1.75-acre pad­dock.
