DESCRIPTION Owls' Barn sits in the heart of Morcott, with views of the village church and fields beyond. It was once the stables and coach house to the Old Rectory which was bought by the late owner over 35 years ago. The plan was to rebuild the stables, to make a fantastic family home with flexible living, which they personally designed throughout. Once completed, the Old Rectory was sold off and Owls' Barn was left surrounded by beautiful, landscaped grounds with added benefit of its own coach house. You enter through stone pillars onto the gravel drive with extensive parking. This leads you up to the Barn and passes the coach house which is Grade II listed along with a stone wall which incorporates an arch in the shape of the Rutland Horseshoe.
Entering the Barn from the driveway, you are brought directly into the useful boot room / utility, which in turn leads onto the breakfast kitchen which was been handcrafted and offers fully integrated appliances, a range of fitted units, the cosiness of an aga and a seating area which has a window view. From here you enter into the dining hallway which also incorporates the front door and an individually designed wrought iron staircase to the first floor. Off the dining hall there is a cloakroom and two reception rooms which are currently dressed as a music room and the principal bedroom with en-suite.
Climbing the stairs to the first-floor landing, you gain access to the living room with exposed stone wall and wood burning stove along with stunning views from every window. This also benefits from access to the garden via wrought iron steps. From the landing you also access two spacious double bedrooms with inbuilt storage, family bathroom and separate w/c. Also, you can gain access to the loft area, which has been divided into three usable rooms.
The Grade II listed Coach House is accessible from the driveway and accessed by two large full height double doors. This is currently used as split-level garage and workshop with power and lighting. The landscaped gardens cloak the southwest side of the Barn, offering a large lawn area framed by mature shrubs and trees. An ornamental pond and waterfall have been incorporated into the landscaping with a woodland walk behind, which comes into its own in the spring. This leads to a raised paved seating area, with a well, summer house and large open wood store which could easily be converted to an outside kitchen / seating area with views over open fields.
