A beautiful stone farmhouse, with enacted planning for a detached cottage, outbuildings and mature gardens, in a prime Rutland village close to Rutland Water.
Originally part of the Burley on the Hill estate, Barnett's Farm is an attractive Grade II Listed C17 and Victorian six bedroom farmhouse, at one time one of the largest farms in the area. The stone part of the farmhouse has a traditional Collyweston roof which was re done in 2019.
Set back from Church Road with delightful east and south facing gardens of about 0.8 acre backing down to open fields adjacent to the Egleton Nature Reserve at Rutland Water. There is enacted planning for a three bedroom stone cottage and double garage (SUL/2006/1260) with full foundations and services already installed on site offering an excellent investment or ancilliary cottage.
The front door opens into a through entrance hall with local Clipsham limestone flooring and door to the rear garden and terrace. To the right of the hallway are a large dining and living room running the full width of the property with an attractive
marble fireplace and french windows to an extensive south facing terrace.
To the left the hallway passes a good sized room with a jetmaster open fireplace and wood floors currently used as an office and on to a bay fronted sitting room with built in bookcases. There is a large kitchen and adjoining breakfast room with extensive fitted suite and 4 oven Aga both having views over the garden.
At first floor there are 4 large double bedrooms principal with en suite shower room - and a large family bathroom with roll top bath and built in shower.
To the second floor there are a further two double bedrooms with a large bathroom.
The house can be accessed from both the north and south sides. To the south a long gravelled driveway leads down to the garage and stables and to the north accessed via double gates to the side of the house. The lawned gardens with mature
trees and flowerbeds to the rear of the property lead down to an orchard giving onto open fields adjacent to the nature reserve. The private gardens offer several areas for entertaining and plenty of space for children to enjoy.

With a sense of space and volume, with high ceilings, Barnett's Farmhouse is a fabulous period home, with delightful gardens, the versatility of brick garage and stables and of the planning for a secondary cottage. Close to Rutland Water and the on the edge of the Egleton Nature Reserve, this is a tranquil and beautiful setting and one I love!James Abbott
