Shouler & Son’s residential agency is more than happy to arrange ‘early bird’ viewings to prospective purchasers following its pre-Christmas soft launch of a modern barn conversion property, with stables and paddock land, in the Melton Mowbray rural parish of Somerby.
The Byre is two storey, four bedroom barn conversion family home in a setting of over an acre of land.
Typical of a contemporary barn conversion property, the house is arranged around a courtyard with its ground floor accommodation in an ‘L’ shape formation.
Downstairs there is a central entrance lobby leading to the living room and the fourth bedroom/study to the left and, to the right, a large kitchen/breakfast room through to a more formal dining area.
There is also a shower room on the ground floor.
The living accommodation on either side of the house leads another lobby - to the rear - from where the staircase is to the upper floor bedrooms and family bathroom.
The principal bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom.
The upstairs landing space is used by the present owners as a cinema room. Shoulers’ agents suggest this area has scope as an office/study if the room downstairs is required for bedroom use or, perhaps, as a snug/’hang out’ area for any member of the household who needs additional space.
The Byre’s formal gardens are to the rear and are well maintained with mature planting and laid with a sun-terrace/barbecue area.
There is a 12 ft x 12 ft stable and the acre of paddock land is adjacent to the house.
The proximity of the paddock so close to the property is, according to Shoulers, ‘unusual’. The agent also remarks on the quality of the paddock land - it being fenced, drained and well maintained.
Richard Cleaver, Shoulers’ Head of Residential, who is leading the sale of The Byre, feels the property is a prime example of the best contemporary barn conversions.
He explains, “The most successful barn conversions should retain a sense of their rustic roots with the use of brickwork and wood beam and stone features.
“But the key to the appeal of the best barn conversions is the addition and clever use of extra light through extensive glazing in windows, doors and skylights.
“The popularity of barn conversions is a testament to our affection for the past but our desire for modern creature comforts.
“The paddock land and stable offer at The Byre will serve to enhance the whole property’s appeal to potential purchasers seeking a modern way of country living.
“It’s a charming and cherished sales instruction for Shoulers.
“That’s why we can’t resist showcasing the property with a soft launch now before the traditional new year sales push.”
The Byre, High Street, Somerby, near Melton Mowbray and its paddock land & stables are offered for sale, as a whole, through Shouler & Son with a guide price of £695,000.
