A traditional stone barn, which has been converted into a fabulous family home, with Rutland Water views over its almost six acres of garden and land, between Manton and Edith Weston
A traditional stone barn of circa 1900, which has been converted into a fabulous family home, Barn Owl House wraps around three sides of a walled courtyard, with incredible views over six acres of gardens and land to Rutland Water.
The house manages to retain a sense of its past and period character, with exposed stonework and windows, whilst also offering a light and airy holiday home feel', with the principal rooms all showcasing the setting and views. Accessed through electric gates and with a generous gravelled parking and turning sweep, and a triple garage.
A U-shaped house, the bedroom wings frame the central living parts of the home, with their views of Rutland Water. The entrance hall has exposed stonework walls. The dual-aspect sitting room full height sliding doors to the garden that provide phenomenal views over Rutland Water. The kitchen/breakfast room incorporates a comprehensive fitted suite, with space for an American style fridge freezer, Belfast sink, oil fired AGA and French doors to the south facing central courtyard. The dining room has glazed sliding doors to the garden, again providing stunning views over Rutland water.
The west wing has two ground floor double bedrooms, each with built in wardrobes and en suite shower rooms, both with glazed French doors to the south facing central courtyard. The east wing incorporates the guest bedroom suite with a generous double bedroom, dressing area and en suite shower room

I really like this house. It is deceptively spacious, and whilst it has fabulous view over Rutland Water, it also offers sense of real privacy. With over five acres of garden and land, and positioned between Manton and Edith Weston on the no-through lane to Rutland Water Nature Reserve's Lyndon Visitor Centre, it occupies a lovely position.James Abbott
