Located conveniently between the peace and tranquillity of the Greater Manchester countryside and the convenience of the nearby Harwood town, Raikes Barn offers a unique barn conversion home. The former barn has evolved in several steps over the years, dating back to the 1840s, before being officially revived in 2005 to become the high standard home it is today.

From here, there is access to a spacious sitting room equipped with a living flame gas fireplace. The floor also has a study and a snug, which really stands out with its Swedish log-burning stove as a centrepiece.

The barn conversion has four large bedrooms, with the master bedroom having an ensuite and a dressing room. On the top floor is a spacious and versatile area that can be used for whatever suits your needs.
