About this property
A superb stone barn conversion with an abundance of character, spacious and flexible living spaces and some of the best open views in the county.
You enter the property through a solid oak door into a large and light entrance hall. There are exposed stone walls, a limestone floor and beautiful oak work throughout and an oak staircase rising to the first floor.
There is a stunning formal sitting room with exposed stonework, original timber beams, a large wood burning stove and large glazed doors leading out to the terrace, garden and beautiful views beyond.
The property has a wonderful open plan dining kitchen with a comprehensive range of floor-standing and wall mounted cupboards and drawers, space for a Range style cooker with extractor hood over, space and plumbing for a fridge, freezer and dishwasher and sink with mixer tap. There are timber beams to the ceiling and stunning views through the window and French doors that open out to the terrace. A utility room sits just off the kitchen providing further storage, a secondary sink, space for white goods and a part glazed stable door leading into the rear courtyard.
The accommodation continues with the dining room, accessed off the entrance hall, with windows and doors to two elevations providing plenty of light. A door from this room opens into a further reception room that is currently being used as a gym with exposed stone walls and a limestone floor. The property also offers a study and a downstairs WC located off the entrance hall.
The bedroom and bathroom accommodation is split between the ground and first floor giving a great degree of flexibility. The generous sized principal bedroom is located on the first floor with exposed stonework, beams to the ceiling, built-in storage and windows allowing plenty of light. Complementing this room is a Jack and Jill bathroom that can be accessed from both the bedroom and the landing. The bathroom has a raised bath, separate walk-in shower, twin sinks and a wall hung low flush lavatory. There are two further double bedrooms on the first floor both with built-in storage.
The bedroom accommodation continues on the ground floor with a potential further two bedrooms and a shower room. The layout and flexibility of the property's accommodation means it could be used either as a five-bedroom property or a three-bedroom property with a ground floor annex.
The property is approached via a large circular gravel driveway offering ample parking. There is a private rear courtyard to the rear that can be accessed via a five-bar gate on the driveway or via the stable door in the utility room.
Carpenters Court has a fantastic amount of outside space with various zones to include a vegetable garden, lawns that sweep from the West side of the property around to the South side. There is an array of patio areas to enjoy the view, a contemporary ornamental pond and a large main terrace sitting off the property's kitchen and sitting room. The terrace flows onto the lawn that is separated from the paddock by a post and rail fence.
There is also a three-room agricultural stone and brick-built barn offering fantastic potential for conversion and has planning consent granted. These Barns could be converted into further living accommodation or could simply be ancillary buildings to the main house.
This wonderful stone barn has been lovingly and meticulously converted by the current owners and has some of the best countryside views over the Vale of Catmose and enjoys superb sunsets throughout most of the year.
Barrow is a delightful, quiet backwater in the heart of Rutland just two miles from Cottesmore and therefore within easy reach of the A1. The historic market town of Oakham is 6 miles away, providing excellent shopping facilities and local amenities whilst the East Coast Mainline runs through Peterborough and provides excellent links to London and the north east.
Head out of Oakham on the Burley Road and cross over the roundabout onto the Oakham Road (B668). Continue on this road and head into the village of Cottesmore. Take the left-hand turn sign posted to Market Overton. This road will take you into the village of Barrow. Continue on Main Street and you will find Carpenters Court on your left-hand side after passing the triangular green.
