Description

Spacious, red brick, barn conversion with 5 double bedrooms in the popular village of Empingham set on the doorstep of Rutland Water. Wonderfully versatile accommodation with a contemporary feel. Gated courtyard driveway and rear garden.

An english treasure
Are you longing to find an authentically English barn conversion in a Stamford village near Rutland Water?

Red Barn, in the heart of the village of Empingham on the edge of Rutland Water, has been remodelled and adapted creating a rare and spacious rural retreat. Built from red brick the barn conversion has an adaptable layout offering four reception rooms, five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large terrace, lawn garden and off-road parking for numerous vehicles.

Modern & rustic
The warm-red tones in the original brickwork strike a harmonious balance with the contemporary materials and finishes to complement the home's rural heritage creating a welcoming space that feels at one with the scenic landscape where village life, farmland, paddocks and Rutland Water are all on your doorstep.

The enhanced natural features create a fresh, modern-rustic look made for stylish living and simple relaxation. Once inside, the exposed timber beams are off-set with crisp, whitewashed walls and natural timber flooring brings warmth and texture to the sleek country style interior – meanwhile roof lights and pretty windows throw light and movement back into the rooms. A cross section of the barn gives the view of the ground floor and first floor creating a wonderfully flexible and adaptable layout that can be adjusted as the needs and wants of your family life as they alter with time.

Welcome to red barn
Turning off Main Street, drive along Barn End, a shared driveway only used by three other homes, and once through your own double gates pull into your private, walled, gravelled courtyard area with space to park numerous vehicles.

The main front door to Red Barn is ideally positioned in the centre of the property, although family, friends and regular visitors typically make use of the large stable doors from here that open straight into the kitchen – the true heart of the home.

A sociable hub
The impressive, modern, family-friendly kitchen will guarantee the warmest of welcomes. With cosy underfloor heating, the natural wood grain of the timber flooring blends with the exposed redbrick walls beautifully. The large, electric, range style oven with gas hob is accompanied by a built-in fridge, freezer, dishwasher, wine cooler and there is plenty of storage cupboards fitted all around. A large island unit provides even more storage and allows a row of bar stools to be casually tucked beneath - the perfect space for those hurried work day mornings and for chatting together as you prepare supper or overseeing homework! A run of windows offers views across the front courtyard, while patio doors to the rear open onto the side terrace. With a refreshing drink in your hand, this secluded spot will surely help you unwind at the end of a busy week! Even during the cooler months, you will be tempted to relax out here.

Back inside, a useful boot room is conveniently situated next to the kitchen, with yet again more storage cupboards for those kit bags, coats and boots.

Recline and unwind
For more formal dining, the open plan dining room with striking ceiling beams within the vaulted ceiling, is conveniently situated next to the kitchen. The contemporary, open-plan layout smoothly leads into a relaxed living area by the French doors offering views over the rear garden and field beyond.


Time to explore the rest of the downstairs and sliding back a barn door, the hallway makes way to a cloakroom on the left and the next reception room. Currently used as a teenager's den, this bright room is a generous size with a large window taking in pleasant views over the rear garden. Across the hallway, double sliding barn doors reveal a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing sitting room with shuttered windows and natural wood flooring.

Next, you'll discover a study, again with window onto the rear aspect, allowing plenty of natural daylight and benefits from being away from the hubbub and noise of daily life. The main hallway with front door, stairs and storage cupboard is located at the centre of the house but there are still more rooms to discover…

There is yet another reception room, a large double bedroom with its own en suite shower room and at the end of the hallway, with a door that opens back onto the side aspect, the laundry room is perfectly located here.

Soak and sleep
Upstairs, there are four further double bedrooms - turning right at the top of the stairs, there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom with bath, basin and loo.

Moving back along the landing, past a row of useful fitted cupboards and an airing cupboard you'll find the master bedroom; a light, bright and spacious bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a chic en suite shower room with a large walk-in shower with contemporary mirrored enclosure, wash basin with vanity unit and loo. Grab the fluffiest of towels, light your candles, relax and unwind!

Step outside
The rear, enclosed garden is linked by a paved area that wraps around the house on three sides that perfectly lends itself to casual outdoor entertaining. A few steps from the patio area tempts you and your guests onto the raised, grassy lawn area. For practical reasons, at the rear of the home a useful outdoor storage area with lockable double doors provides useful space for bikes, gardening equipment and outdoor paraphernalia.
