Old milking shed near Worksop is now a countryside retreat worth £775,000
That’s this exquisite barn conversion, nestled within a sprawling 1.2-acre plot, on Frithwood Lane in the historic and beautiful village of Elmton, which is part of the Derbyshire district of Bolsover.
Since its days as a milking shed, it has been sympathetically converted but retains many original period features, offering spacious accommodation, flooded with natural light, as well as glorious gardens.
What’s more, Elmton, which is just an 18-minute drive from Worksop, boasts lovely shops and traditional pubs and is an ideal location for those who want a rural setting, yet remain close enough to local schools, towns and cities.
As you step inside the house, your eyes are immediately drawn to the magnificent, exposed beams that adorn the soaring ceilings, showcasing the authentic character of the original barn structure.
The open-plan living area seamlessly integrates a lounge, dining room and breakfast kitchen. And the ground floor, which has underfloor heating throughout, is completed, beyond the hallway, by the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom.
The other three bedrooms can be found on the first floor, which is split into two sections, complete with galleried landing. One of the bedrooms has its own en suite, while the others are served by a large family bathroom.
The exterior of the property is impressive, with a landscaped courtyard featuring a patio area and a garden room. A gated driveway and single garage further enhance the home, as does an expansive, south-east facing garden that is a natural oasis of peace and privacy. It boasts majestic trees, growing cherries, apples, pears, apricots and plums, manicured lawns and colourful flowerbeds, and provides ample space for activities ranging from summer barbecues to your own vegetable patch.
