Dare to be Different: Why Barns are the Next Big Thing

News at Maxwell Hodgson | 30/09/2019

When it comes to standing out from the crowd, you’ll be hard pushed to find a property with more character than a barn. With their exposed wood beams, internal brickwork and ornate fixtures, barns make for a cosy retreat and are one of the most idyllic places to recharge after a hard day’s work. Hence why viewing The Barn in Monk Fryston isn’t just advisory, it’s essential.

Don’t believe us? Here’s 3 reasons why The Barn should be part of your viewing calendar.

Character & Charm

By combining classical features with modern fixtures and fittings, The Barn creates a contemporary living space, unique from anything else on the market. Contrast the property’s accents of exposed brick and stainless steel with the mottled tones of its porcelain floor tiles and you’ll quickly realise that this is no ‘ordinary’ home.

Open-Plan Living

Family time is all about being together, hence why open-plan living is proving popular.  Not only does an open-plan living space dramatically increase the amount of light within a property, but it also offers occupants far more flexibility. The clever open-plan layout of The Barn allows parents to keep an eye on young ones while preparing dinner. Equally, for those who love to entertain, conversation can easily flow throughout the main floor.

Speaking of entertaining, The Barn’s courtyard-style gardens feature both a patio and pergola, as well as parking for multiple cars, which makes it the perfect setting for any savvy socialite.


Monk Fryston has evolved into a thriving commuter village. With links to Leeds, Harrogate and York, as well as easy access to neighbouring villages such as Hillam, South Milford and Hambleton, it’s fast becoming an attractive destination for families and young professionals.
