A four double bedroom, detached barn conversion for sale in a rural Leicestershire village setting is the latest property instruction causing a buzz this summer for the residential agency of Shouler & Son.
In the picturesque setting of Waltham on the Wolds, Manor Barn is situated within a gated, private driveway at the end of Mill Lane.
With a loose stone driveway approaching the property’s double front door entrance, Manor Barn has views to open paddocks to the front and a private garden area, with patio, to the rear.
On the L-shaped ground floor there is an open plan kitchen/breakfast room, with stone floor, leading to a utility/laundry area and then onwards to an inner hallway snug space and the private garden.
There is a cloakroom and plenty storage at ground floor level too. Additionally, there is a double bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and complete ensuite bathroom on the ground floor.
Upstairs leads to a galleried landing, three more double bedrooms - the central bedroom has an ensuite shower room - and the family bathroom.
Outside, there is a covered storage area and the rear garden with external access via a side gate.
To the front of Manor Barn is a double garage with space that could be re-purposed for use as a personal gym, a workshop or studio for private use or set up as a home-office base as an alternative, or in addition, to the snug on the ground floor.
There is additional parking for vehicles on the garage driveway.
Waltham on the Wolds is five miles north east of Melton Mowbray and eleven miles south west of Grantham, on the A607 road.
The village has a parish church, village hall, an Ofsted-rated ‘outstanding’ primary school and a public house.
Speaking about Manor Barn and its success as a modern barn conversion, Richard Cleaver, Head of Residential, Shouler & Son, said, “The most successful barn conversions rely on the structure creating an instant impression.
“They also must retain some of the original elements such as internal timbers, brick or stone work. The only exception to this is in the pursuit of extra light through the addition of extensive glazing in doors and windows.
“Manor Barn - which was converted for residential use in 1998 - is not to be overlooked by housebuyers who are looking for the charm of a rural home but with the kind of modern specification and features essential to busy family life in 2022 and beyond.”
Shouler & Son is inviting offers over £850,000 for Manor Barn.
