Set the sat nav to Warwickshire this weekend and head for an open house at this lovely barn conversion for sale at Netherstead Court.

It is taking place on Saturday from noon to 2pm at this handsome former farm building in Morton Bagot near Studley.

Originally constructed around 1880 of English red brick set beneath Welsh Slate, the converted farmstead sits adjacent to the ancient manor house of Netherstead Hall.

It was converted from part of the historic former model farm belonging to the nearby Studley Castle Estate, and is a graceful mix of retained features and contemporary style.

It is set within a courtyard but surrounded by undulating fields in a shallow brook valley that leads to the River Arrow.

Comfortable and contemporary inside, it is light and airy thanks to the large windows and use of glazed French doors where once there might have been solid wooden ones.

It begins with a reception hall with enough room for seating and shelves.

This leads to a guest cloakroom, toilet and utility.

The rest of the ground floor is divided into two main rooms.

The lounge is a great space with windows to two sides, exposed brickwork, room for a wood burning stove and shuttered French windows to the garden.

The kitchen diner is more than 26 feet long. It has a smart array of fitted units to one end with space for appliances . To the other there is ample room for dining in an area which has windows and glazed French doors along one wall.

On the first floor, the master suite takes up one end of the barn. Here there is a large bedroom area with built-in wardrobes, gallery above the lounge area and a shower room with toilet.

A guest suite is completed by its own private bathroom while the other two bedrooms are served by the shower room and toilet.

Outside the property there is the courtyard with a parking area to the front of the substantial double garage.

At the back of the house, there is an enclosed west facing garden which has been landscaped with an expanse of lawn, space for play and for sitting. It is framed by mature hedging and established planting with a pedestrian gate in the middle offering access to the communal meadow. Beyond this there are fields.

The settlement of Morton Bagot is mentioned in the Domesday Book. The larger towns of Henley-in-Arden and Alcester are both within six miles.

The location is also convenient for the M40 and the M42 with Birmingham just 20 miles away.
