Calf Barn is a stunning, single storey barn dating from the mid 1800's which has been converted with great sensitivity and flair into a fine four bedroomed dwelling. There is a low energy air source heat pump system serving the underfloor heating system, a walled garden and cedar clad double detached garage.
General - Calf Barn is a stunning single storey barn conversion which forms part of a traditional range of farm buildings being developed by Dovebury Developments at Yew Tree Farm. The barn is in a fabulous setting in a pretty conservation area on the edge of Nailstone. In planning the conversion, every effort has been made to preserve the essential character of this wonderful building, whilst at the same time creating contemporary and stylish living spaces. Calf Barn features reclaimed roofing, exposed timbers and brickwork combined with modern natural limestone and timber flooring. The latest technology ensures Calf Barn will be cost effective to run. The low energy air source heating system warms the under-floors throughout the barn, whilst the individual room thermostats give the user considerable control. The air source heat pump unit by "Nibe" is discreetly housed next door to the garage whilst the controls and hot water tank are located in the garage eliminating any noise disturbance from the system.
The Village - Nailstone is a highly regarded West Leicestershire village where amenities include a primary school rated as "Good" in its last Ofsted inspection. The nearby town of Market Bosworth has some fine restaurants, public houses and shops, a high school rated as "Excellent" by Ofsted and the town is also home to the famous Dixie Grammar School. There is fast access to the motorway network via the M1, M42, M69 and the M6. East Midlands and Birmingham Airports are both within easy reach.
Calf Barn - Calf Barn, which in its former life was a milking parlour, has well proportioned accommodation including a sensational living kitchen which opens directly into the sitting room. A particular feature of this room are the full height vaulted ceilings with some beautiful exposed "A" frame timbers. Four double bedrooms overlook the courtyard garden. The master bedroom is en-suite and one bedroom features internal glazing, offering flexibility of use as a guest room or home office. There are full height ceilings throughout the barn which gives a real feeling of space and allows many of the original roof timbers to remain exposed. The under-floor heating, whilst creating a very pleasant living environment, has allowed the developer to dispense with radiators leaving clean lines and highly efficient internal spaces. Particular attention has been paid to the finishes with bespoke solid oak external doors, LED lighting and "Farrow and Ball" painted finishes.
Entrance Hall - An oak door from the parking area opens into the entrance hall. There is a limestone tiled floor, doors to sitting room and cloakroom.

The sitting room opens into the living kitchen, creating a sensational open plan living area for entertaining on a grand scale.
Living Kitchen - 20'9" x 14'1" (6.32m x 4.29m) - There is a full height vaulted ceiling, again with some spectacular exposed "A" frame rafters and trusses. In celebration of the barn's agricultural heritage, ceiling lights have been crafted out of the original milk collecting jars. A bespoke "Shaker" style kitchen with hand painted units, soft closing cupboards and drawers has been fitted. The drawers and cupboards have been made with oak liners constructed using dovetailed joints. There are graphite grey polished granite work surfaces and upstands. An additional food preparation area has been created with a large central island that has a polished graphite grey work surface, breakfast bar and integrated dual temperature wine cooler. The kitchen cabinets are arranged around a "Belling" range style cooker with three ovens, grill and warming drawer, a five ring induction hob and extractor in glass and stainless steel canopy over. Integrated appliances include a "Bosch" dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The limestone tiling to the floor, contrasts nicely with the oak flooring in the sitting room.
