A dream 19th century barn conversion in the quaint village of Teigh, in Rutland, is on the market for £2.6 million. Teigh is a designated ‘Thankful Village’ in recognition of being one of 32 communities across England and Wales from which all its members of the armed forces survived the First World War.

The Teigh View Barn is a six-bedroom property that was converted in 2017 and sits within grounds of around 2.8 acres. Dating back to 1862, the property has retained details of the old stone and exposed timbers of the original building, but has the luxury of modern features throughout, including underfloor heating, with each bedroom coming with its own dressing room with oak fittings.

Developed by Kaybee Developments and purchased shortly before completion, the current owners took their chance to stamp their personality on the home. Over the years, further improvements have been made to enhance the property and blend old with new.

The property’s principal bedroom, considered the most characterful room of the house, features exposed timber beams perfectly juxtaposed against the modern windows and high-end fittings.

Teigh View Barn has plenty of space both inside and outside for entertaining, with a triple aspect kitchen/dining/family room serving as the heart of the home and providing a space where all can gather to enjoy family meals and celebrations, with two sets of bi-folding doors to the gardens.

The fitted kitchen comes with luxuries such as a double fitted oven, wine cooler, breakfast bar, and minimalist-yet-colourful kitchen units. Meanwhile the dining and family room area comes with wonderful views and lots of light coming through the folding doors - with modern, tasteful light fittings and downlights.

In other parts of the house, there is another family room with plenty of room for bookshelves and storage space, as well as a study - which also comes with its own sliding doors for easy access to fresh, countryside air, and a gym. In addition to a family room, study and gym, there is ample off-road parking and covered garaging for many vehicles within a spacious detached garage barn.

Outside, there's a patio area perfect for outside dining and relaxation, as well as a decent sized collection of flowerbeds for gardening. There is also a custom-made firepit built into the ground just perfect for late-night chats by the fire.

James Abbott, director in the residential sales team at Savills in Stamford, whose team are handling the sale, says: “Few houses have made more of an impact on a first visit than this did. It is a hugely uplifting home and one that has glorious views of the surrounding countryside.

"What makes it so beautifully unique is that there is a wonderful feel and flow throughout the home. The finishes are first class and the layout offers fabulous connectivity with the gardens, with standout views for almost all rooms. It is also very well placed for access to the area’s market towns, schools and rail links.”
