Ostlers barn is a beautifully presented barn conversion constructed of red brick with a welsh slate roof, located in a rural position between Medbourne and Stockerston. The barn has been carefully converted to blend the character of the barn with contemporary living. Exposed bricks and attractive beams remain features of the barn throughout. Of particular note is the impressive living kitchen with extensive central island and corian worktops. The rooms are all flooded with natural light and benefit from wet under floor heating both on the ground and first floor. As well as benefiting from high-speed fibre broadband (gigaclear), there is also full CCTV and hard-wired smoke alarms throughout. Outside is a double garage, parking area, large garden to the front and courtyard garden to the rear.
Ostlers Barn is located in a rural elevated position close to the village of Medbourne and with easy access to both market towns, Uppingham and Market Harborough. The popular village of Medbourne includes a newly renovated pub with restaurant as well as café. There is also a village store with post office, active village hall and sports facilities with tennis club. The village is surrounded by some particularly attractive walks and bridal ways. Further amenities including shops, supermarkets, restaurants and a theatre can be found in the attractive towns of Market Harborough and Uppingham. In Market Harborough there is also a mainline trains station with services directly to London St Pancras taking approximately 60 mins. Schooling in the area is superb. The highly regarded primary school Bringhurst is just a few miles away with secondary schools in Uppingham, Kibworth and Market Harborough. There are also excellent independent schools nearby including Oakham, Uppingham, Leicester Grammar and Oundle.
The main entrance opens out into the central hall and leads through on either side to the large sitting room and the open plan living kitchen. Off the hall is also a contemporary cloakroom as well as access out to the rear. A stone tile floor runs throughout the ground floor and benefits from under floor heating. The sitting room, to the left of the hall is a particularly well-proportioned and bright room with attractive partly exposed curved brick walls and original beams. At one end is a brick fireplace housing a wood burning stove. Large glass doors on both sides of the room provide access out to the front and rear. To the right of the hall is the wonderful living kitchen with plenty of space for seating and dining, also featuring exposed beams. A very large central island stands in the centre of the kitchen area with a superb run of storage cupboards. The kitchen is fitted to a high quality with attractive light fittings and is fully equipped with integrated ovens, microwave cooker, large fridge freezer, wine fridge, instant hot water tap, induction hob and coffee machine. The living kitchen space also benefits from CAT 5 wiring. Up a few steps, leading off the kitchen is a useful utility space and a separate study (which could also be used as a downstairs bedroom or playroom). Here there is internal access to the large double garage with electrical car charging point.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, all with CAT 5 wiring. The master bedroom is particularly impressive with double height ceiling, exposed beams, an exposed brick wall and benefits from a stylish en suite shower room. The second bedroom also has an en suite and bedrooms three and four have use of a jack ‘n’ jill shower room. The fourth bedroom features a Juliet balcony where there are lovely rural views.
To the front of the barn is a good area for parking and a large garden space – this area could be lawned to create an extensive garden or could also provide additional parking space. To the rear is an enclosed rear garden.
