The Old Grain Store is a simply stunning individual character conversion offering a deceptive level of accommodation which has been sympathetically extended and refitted by the current vendors, to create a truly superb and unique character home within a semi-rural setting.

This wonderful home extends to approximately 2000 sq ft and exudes character with a wealth of features and many rooms offering high vaulted ceilings with exposed timber purlins and king post truss, oak ledge and brace doors, beautiful farmhouse style kitchen appointed with a generous range of units and integrated appliances. There is also a stunning oak framed garden room to the side elevation which is flooded with light from a full height glazed gable end.

The character elements are complemented by contemporary ensuite and main bathroom creating a wonderful blend of traditional with the benefits of modern living.

The accommodation is exceptionally versatile in its layout with a range of bedrooms and reception rooms that could be utilised according to individual requirements, but in its current format provides four double bedrooms, the master with ensuite, two main receptions and generous kitchen with utility.

The property occupies a stunning plot, in total approximately 3 acres, which has been thoughtfully landscaped creating formal gardens that surround the Old Grain Store with mainly lawned garden at the rear and terrace that runs from an open veranda to the rear of the garden room, with productive vegetable garden and courtyard area accessed off the kitchen. This creates a wonderful outdoor space that overlooks the property's paddocks and countryside beyond.

To the rear of the property is a bespoke stable/workshop building, hand crafted to a high specification and adding not only usable utility space but also a wonderful feature viewed from the main house. This area comprises a central stable block with three boxes and covered canopy with tack room, concrete apron, and adjacent insulated workshop and studio. Adjacent to this is a Victorian style greenhouse and for the equestrian purchaser the property benefits from its own grass paddocks, accessed directly off the property, as well as an enclosed manege, all overlooking adjacent fields as well as having access directly onto local bridle paths and countryside beyond.

To the side of the stable block is ample off road parking with field gate access leading onto a green lane at the rear but the more formal entrance to the barns is via a shared driveway where there is additional visitor parking but also a substantial tandem length garage with useful storage in the eaves.

Overall this all comes together to create both a fantastic equestrian set up and family home, but is also in a unique semi-rural setting which is located within easy reach of local villages and towns and viewing is the only way to truly appreciate both the property's accommodation and location.

Barnstone lies in the Vale of Belvoir and amenities are available in the adjacent village of Langar including well regarded primary school and post office. Further facilities can be found in the nearby market town of Bingham including range of shops, doctors and dentists, secondary schooling, leisure centre and railway station with links to Nottingham and Grantham. The village is conveniently located for the A52 and A46 with good road rinks to the A1 and M1.
