About this property

  • Lodge Barn is a skillful conversion and high quality renovation of a period threshing barn set in a delightful village setting
    strategically accessible to a wide range of reasonable centres and national transport links. The house offers a range
    of very flexible accommodation with the principal rooms set within the delightful two storey converted former threshing
    barn and a link to an adjoining wing providing further
    accommodation which has the ability to offer an independent
    annexe or separate home office wing if desired.

    The house enjoys a good degree of privacy, positioned on a quiet, no through road with delightful mature grounds and gardens extending to about 0.35 of an
    acre or thereabouts. The main house offers a generous dining room/hallway with a delightful double room and main sitting room which then leads out on to a glazed open sided garden room. There is a well presented fitted breakfast kitchen, utility
    and a delightful drawing room/further reception set
    within the adjoining and linked side wing.

    A further glazed inner hall leads to a studio and an office, all ideally suited for a potential separate linked annexe or home office accommodation. On the first floor is a fine principal en suite bedroom, three further good bedrooms and a well presented family bathroom. The house is set in attractive private gardens with an extensive front

A useful walk-in separate store room and a linked glazed greenhouse. The courtyard area provides ample additional parking and turning

    The main gardens are quite delightful with generous lawns and separate sitting area set to the front of the house with blue brick paved pathway. There are generous and deep mature borders with trees and shrubs and beyond the main sitting room an attractive open sided glazed garden room with built-in cabinets. A newly fitted and enlarged decked area overlooks the lower garden with generous lawns and a range of useful
    garden stores.

A favorite aspect of mine are the character features such as the beamed ceilings and exposed brick walls.

Local information

  • Lockington is a historic village set on the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire borders and following the road improvements at the nearby Junction 24 of the M1 motorway and the link to the A50, the village has now become a quiet backwater enjoying the benefits of easy access to major road, rail and transport links. East Midlands Parkway station is only 4 miles away and East Midlands International Airport is some 4 miles away. The property therefore is superbly location for access to other parts of the UK but within a delightful unspoilt historic village setting.
