Kirk Lane Stables – North Yorkshire
Eastby, near Skipton, North Yorkshire
Bowman Riley designed the conversion of a derelict Kirk Lane stables block into a sleek modern home in Eastby just outside of the North Yorkshire town of Skipton.
Our client initially set out to convert Kirk Lane stable block into a high-quality holiday home. Exceeding our client’s expectations, we managed to achieve full planning permission for conversion into a permanent dwelling to vastly increase the value of the property.
The attractive property is clad in burnt larch wood to blend into the rural setting. The use of large metallic stable doors provide cover to lightweight glazing in winter months and reference the agricultural heritage of the building.
Our designs create natural light-filled spaces by a huge roof light in the living room, a glazed Crittall door and Velux windows to all bedrooms. An integrated cycle store in matching materials allows visitors to experience the nearby countryside by bicycle.
The spacious property is well insulated and features a large living room and dining area with a log burning stove and four bedrooms.
Now complete, our clients are delighted with the results and have been able to achieve their ambition of successfully renting the property out on a regular basis as a holiday let. Annie and Alex, our clients said:
“You created such a fabulous home we can now build and move forward. It feels like a breeze… Coming from ideas to reality, you were able to see that vision and design us a beautiful unique house.”
