Barnstone Lodge is a wonderful example of a substantial former period farmhouse set in a lovely, open rural setting with commanding views across the adjoining land and the Vale of Belvoir. The house offers very good sized generous and well specified accommodation and has the potential for upgrading in certain parts.
The house is of a lovely, traditional vernacular design with triple gabled frontage beneath a plain tiled roof and with fine detailed brickwork in part. The generous accommodation briefly comprises a good reception hall with ground floor shower room and W.C. Two large reception rooms both with a southerly aspect over the gardens and the Vale of Belvoir beyond.
There is a generous well fitted breakfast kitchen with French doors to the side garden and a large utility with rear door and secondary staircase, leading up to the unmodernised rear portion of the property.
On the first floor is the main landing with three bedrooms to the front elevation, a large well fitted family bathroom with separate shower and a fourth bedroom. To the first floor off the back stairs are two rooms suitable for renovation and improvement. There is also a useful cellar.
Outside the property has a large boiler room with an oil fired boiler providing central heating and domestic hot water. There is a side courtyard area, mainly lawned gardens, walled in part and an adjoining paddock. In all some 1.85 acres or thereabouts.
Note: our clients may be willing to rent a nearby parcel of grazing land,a further five acres or thereabouts.
