A beautiful detached barn conversion SURROUNDED BY ROLLING COUNTRYSIDE offering over 2000 sq.ft of STYLISH LIVING SPACE, boasting four bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms, two reception rooms and a BESPOKE OPEN PLAN ‘LIVE IN’ DINING KITCHEN.

Originally constructed circa 1800 the original Carthouse Barn has been sympathetically converted some 20 years ago with a careful eye using a variety of reclaimed materials including pine church floorboards, stone blocks (from Calke Abbey), cast iron radiators and pillars; there is much to love and there is a wealth of living space on offer.

The location is peaceful and surrounded by glorious roiling countryside with far reaching views. The Cart House barn lies in an enviable position set well away from the main road down a long shared private driveway approach which culminates at the five exclusive barns.

From around the barn, public footpaths will lead you through many walks across fields through the National Forest to the nearby neighbouring villages of Newton Burgoland and Normanton le Heath. Swepstone itself offers fast and easy access to the nearby M42 connecting the Midland motorway network, along with the pretty market towns of Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Market Bosworth, which offer a comprehensive range of facilities.

This stylish barn is arranged over two floors offering in excess of 2000 sq.ft of character accommodation and we highly recommend an internal appraisal to appreciate the location and the architecturally resplendent living space on offer.

Accommodation; Steps lead you down to a wide entrance door that opens to reveal an entrance porch with tiled floor. This opens into the adjoining reception hall with feature cobbled floor, part vaulted ceiling with inset glazed skylights and exposed trusses. A reclaimed stripped pine split level staircase leads to the principal living areas and also up to the galleried landing above.

Off the hall is a fantastic open plan living space consisting of a large ‘L’ shaped kitchen dining room with bespoke hand made cabinets, complementary counter tops, and a large inglenook contains a Smeg range cooker. There is plenty of space for entertaining with the dining area having a lovely picture window with views to the fore.

Passing between two reclaimed feature cast iron columns you enter into a fantastic living room where your eyes are drawn naturally upwards due to the vaulted cathedral like ceiling with exposed purlins and original truss. At the focal point of the room is an impressive brick and sandstone fireplace with inset Douvre wood burner and log store to the side. Windows face both to the east and west and a wide glazed barn style door leads out to the rear enclosed courtyard, and in turn the garden beyond. A reclaimed cast iron ornamental staircase ascends up into the separate bedroom suite.

Return back to the cobbled entrance hallway and continue along you will find a second sitting room with feature corner fireplace, exposed brick walls, cobbled floor and glazed French doors which open to the lawned west facing garden.

Completing the ground floor living space along the north wing of the barn you will find two double bedrooms with beautiful reclaimed stud work and basket weave brick walls. There is a contemporary family bathroom suite which has a freestanding roll top bath, WC, wash hand basin, tall ladder radiator and metro style tiling.

Last, but certainly not least, is the master bedroom suite. A charming space with its pitch pine floor, cast iron reclaimed columns, exposed purlins and dual aspect glazed skylights which flood the room with natural light. A feature glazed gable wall has views over the surrounding countryside from its Juliet balcony and the bedroom has the further benefit of an en-suite shower room alongside handmade fitted wardrobes.

Outside, the property has a lawned garden to the rear which enjoys a westerly aspect and a gravelled patio area. To the fore is a further lawned garden and across the gravelled driveway and directly opposite the barn set behind post and rail fencing is a further large garden space that lies directly adjacent to the fields. A timber frame carport provides undercover parking and is set back behind a five bar entrance gate, it houses the oil central heating tank, log store and calor gas bottles.
