3 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale in Back Lane, East Langton, LE16

3 3 2
A spectacular barn conversion with a chic designer interior, Kingsley House presents a rare opportunity to make the prime South Leicestershire village of East Langton your home.



There’s a lively sense of community within the rural cluster of five Langton villages which, between them, offer all the accoutrements of day-to-day life - and much more besides. You’ll find local shops and pubs, picturesque countryside, good schools, excellent road and rail communications and a thriving social scene in this delightful part of the county.



Peacefully located beyond a five-bar gate at the end of a private drive and oozing comfort and style, Kingsley House is the striking designer property at the heart of all this. Converted from barns 19 years ago, the current owners describe it as “as piece of paradise”. They remodelled the main living space just five years ago, adding contemporary flow and an abundance of natural light via banks of bifold doors, complemented by an outstanding cosmetic makeover featuring top-of-the-range fittings and boutique hotel-style décor.



This fabulous predominantly single-storey family home is oh-so-spacious (3,516 sq. ft), thoughtfully designed and flexible. Highlights include the impressive vaulted and beamed living room warmed by a wood burner, the light and airy 26ft kitchen/breakfast room, three double bedrooms including an ultra-luxe master suite, and elegant dining room which, with three walls of glass, merges indoors and outdoors to perfection.



And what lovely views there are, of both the sensational wrap-round gardens and the rolling acres of open countryside beyond. There’s a heated swimming pool for all-year-round dips and a pond that’s a magnet for the array of birdlife such as woodpeckers, goldfinches and wagtails. Deer, badgers and foxes are regularly spotted in the adjoining fields while red kites and buzzards wheel overhead.



Kingsley House has an idyllic countryside location, but it’s certainly not remote. It’s a few minutes’ walk to the village local, The Bell, serving real ales and tasty food, and a short drive to pick up essentials at Kibworth Co-Op. Market Harborough has supermarkets including Sainsbury’s and Waitrose, independent shops, and eateries. It’s a short walk to the nearest primary school too.



We’re sure this superb home in such a sought-after location has whetted your interest – so here are the finer details.



A home that defines quality and style



Kingsley House impresses throughout, starting from the moment you walk through the front door into the chic and spacious entrance hall which is bathed in light via bifold doors opening onto an inner courtyard garden. The sleek Amtico flooring, plantation shutters and uber-cool Bisque Blok radiator set the quality standard for the rest of the house which fans out in four wings from the hallway. The adjoining cloakroom has Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware, Grohe taps and even the towel rail and toilet roll holder are custom-made.



With its vaulted beamed ceiling, the adjoining 22 x 17ft living room really has the wow factor! The focus is the magnificent fireplace with chunky oak lintel and granite hearth, fitted with a wood burner flanked by ornamental log storage. It’s a delightfully light and airy room, thanks to four windows including a duo of full-length ones on either side of the fireplace, opening up views of the garden.



Double doors lead to the magnificent vaulted and beamed 26x14ft kitchen/breakfast room and this extends seamlessly into the 13x16ft dining area and 15x20ft family room. Everyday life will revolve around this wonderfully light and lovely layout with four sets of bifold doors opening onto the garden.



The contemporary fitted kitchen offers ample storage with soft-close drawers and a central island with breakfast bar and wine cooler. There are porcelain tiles underfoot, granite worktops, integrated Miele fridge/freezer, fan oven, oven micro combo and warming drawer, sink with waste disposal unit, Bosch gas hob and Siemen’s dishwasher.



The family room is a wonderfully flexible space and would be perfect as a chill-out area for the adults, gathered around the handsome corner Dru gas fire and a sleek built-in shelving unit. There’s luxe Amtico flooring and a staircase leads up to the massive eaves storage area, spanning 31ft.



The generously sized utility room and adjoining boot room lie alongside, fitted with a sink and cupboards. There’s a door to the front courtyard, so it’s the ideal place to shed muddy boots and rub down damp dogs before they reach the rest of the house.



There’s access from here to the single garage, with electric door, and next to this is the ultra-useful 16x19ft workshop and stairs up to a studio with large veranda to take in those wonderful views. This could be the perfect set-up for someone running their own business. The workshop is bathed in light via patio doors and fitted with cupboards and drawers, while the 18x10ft studio makes a superb office. The installation of a WC would make it completely self-contained.



Time for bed, sleepyheads . . .



The designer master suite has a double-height ceiling with remote-controlled fan and built-in super king bed base with headboard, side tables and lights. It offers far-reaching views of the gardens and fields beyond.



There’s a walk-in wardrobe and luxury dressing area tucked discreetly away behind the bed wall with a designer granite-topped vanity unit with drawers and glass display cupboard. The sleek en-suite has porcelain floor and wall tiles, a super-sized shower, freestanding bathtub, and designer heated towel rail.



The guest suite is equally impressive with a built-in super king bed, feature roof beam, and an entire wall of wardrobe storage. The designer en-suite has a Grohe rain dance shower over the bath, twin washbasins and Keuco mirrored wall cabinets.



The sunny third bedroom, a double with built-in wardrobe, overlooks the courtyard garden.



The great outdoors



Whether you just want to lounge and take in the views, swim in the heated pool, potter among the borders or grow your own vegetables, this fantastic garden has it all!

Beautifully landscaped throughout it has been carefully designed with various patio areas paved in Indian limestone to enjoy at different times of the day. It’s all illuminated when night falls too.



The swimming pool with new liner makes the most of the southerly aspect and the wildlife pond has an oak-decked seating area to lap up the last rays of sunshine. There’s also a sunken firepit with LED lights.



The garden features a stunning collection of hardy tropical plants, specimen trees including an ancient olive tree, and shrubs.



Garden storage is copious with two greenhouses, sheds and covered storage for bins.

There’s parking for multiple cars in front of Kingsley House on the clay block courtyard plus a double oak-framed car port.



Out and about



South Leicestershire is a lovely place to put down roots, and East Langton is at the heart of it. The five Langton villages offer a cornucopia of everyday essentials and leisure activities.

Education is, of course, a priority for families and Church Langton CE Primary School is within half-a-mile. Ofsted-rated ‘outstanding’ Great Bowden Academy and Foxton Primary School, rated ‘good’, are a short drive away. Secondary schools are located nearby at Market Harborough with Robert Smyth Academy and Welland Park Academy both Ofsted-rated ‘good’. Nearby private schooling includes Brook House College, Leicester Grammar School and Stoneygate School.



The surrounding countryside beckons dog-walkers, ramblers, cyclists and horse-riders. Venture a little further afield for family fun in boats and on walks beside the Grand Union Canal. The duo of five-lock staircases at Foxton Locks is a must-see.



As well as the nearby Bell pub, the Langton Arms is another great spot for a drink or meal – their Sunday lunches and steak nights are particularly popular – and why not try the home-brewed ales at Langton microbrewery? Everything from breakfast to afternoon tea can be enjoyed at Langton Garden Centre and Mint & Ginger Coffee House is located in the idyllic courtyard of Tur Langton Manor.



Endless activities such as dance classes, keep fit, table tennis, tae kwondo and yoga are on offer at Langton Community Hall, which is also the base for a wide range of local groups and organisations. Golfers can get in a round or two at Kibworth Golf Club.



Communication links are excellent with easy access to the A6 and the M1. By rail, London St Pancras is about an hour from Market Harborough.
