The area offers a wide range of sporting facilities including sailing clubs at Swarkestone (on the edge of the village), Foremark Reservoir and Staunton Harold Reservoir, and motor racing at Donington Park. The Peak District National Park, with superb walks is easily accessible from Stanton by Bridge. A great choice of public footpaths and bridleways can be accessed from Stanton By Bridge (and Wards Lane itself) leading across the adjoining countryside, with some providing access to the River Trent as well as Melbourne.

2 Stanton Barns is an attractive three-bedroom barn conversion of red brick and stone construction, which is presented to a very good standard both internally and externally. The barn is complemented by extensive and well-designed gardens bordering on to open countryside and a double garage.

The front door opens into a reception hallway with laminate wood flooring and a full height window taking in views of the garden and beyond. This is a spacious area which is currently used as a study/home office but would be suitable for a variety of uses such as a formal dining area, snug or playroom if required. Off the hall is a fabulous open plan living kitchen which has a comprehensive range of Shaker style units with wood effect work surfaces and incorporating a built-in washing machine, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and an electric oven and hob. A central island unit provides further storage, a wine rack and a breakfast bar. The kitchen is complemented by polished terracotta floor tiles and a step leads down to a dining area, having double doors out to the rear gardens and glazed panels showcasing the views.

On the opposite side of the entrance hall is a charming sitting room which has a vaulted ceiling and exposed timberwork within the wall. A multi-fuel burner sits on a slate hearth and double doors open on to the rear patio. A door leads through to an inner hallway with a double bedroom overlooking the front courtyard, a bathroom, and a cloaks cupboard. Stairs with a study corner underneath rise to a generous galleried double bedroom with Velux windows. This wing of the house could be used as a separate annexe or guest suite if required and subject to any necessary consents.

The principal staircase rises to the master suite. The bedroom has a good height ceiling and windows overlooking the rural views. A walk-in wardrobe with hanging rails provides ample storage space. An adjoining shower room with airing cupboard completes the suite.

The property sits within a courtyard setting at the front with a pathway up to the front door and a wide lawn area. A driveway serving the three barn conversions leads down to a detached garage block and car standing space. The garage measures 19'5 x 18'8" and is currently divided into two separate areas, being a gym and a store/workshop.

The rear gardens are extensive and fully enclosed and offer a high degree of privacy whilst taking full advantage of the open countryside views. There are several separate seating areas including an enclosed decked area adjoining the house. Steps go up to a vegetable garden with miniature hedging and greenhouse, continuing to a wide lawn area and a charming summer house in front of which is a further paved area. Access to the garage is gained via a rear courtesy door and a pathway with gate leads to the rear parking area.
