It has been 23 years since the current owner of Mytton Barn moved into his character-filled home.
The house is one of an exclusive group of properties that was created within the former stone stable block and timber yard, which was once part of Papplewick Hall.
With beautiful views out across its own grounds and the surrounding countryside, the high quality conversion has much about it that is attractive.
The building itself is spacious, and its position, close to everything needed is ideal.
It is exactly the right location for work, near Nottingham and Mansfield, said the owner. It is big enough to accommodate two adults and three children comfortably and we liked the back way through to Newstead Abbey Park.
ROOMS WITH A VIEW
The grounds and the views are also major attractions and the owners were keen to make the most of them in the way their property is used.
We extended the terrace, updated the kitchen and cut down 7 yew trees, Today, many rooms in the house look out over the scenery.
In the summer the owners sit out on the terrace, enjoying the sunshine and the tranquillity of the environment.
In the winter, however the large drawing room is a welcoming space. This is a well-proportioned, beamed room, with an exposed, stone fireplace.
This is my favourite room because of its size and the comfort it offers, especially with the warmth from the open log fire, when the weather is cold.
Roomy and bright, it is a magnificent family room with space for a number of people.
The dining hall is also beamed and has been decorated and furnished with elegance. This is the perfect place for family meals and dinner parties.
The kitchen breakfast room leads from the dining hall, creating a good flow between spaces which works particularly well.
With space for a table, meals can also be enjoyed in the kitchen, especially in the warmer months, when the back door can be left open to enhance the views on to the garden.
Upstairs, bedrooms embody a country feel and have the same traditional style as elsewhere in the house. More beams and sloping ceilings give the rooms, many of which have beautiful views, character.
We have really enjoyed living at Mytton Barn, said the current owner. It has been the perfect home while we have been here and the small, secure community has suited us. Now, however, it is time for us to downsize and move on.
Originally forming the stables to Papplewick Hall, the mews of stone built barns now forms individual homes around a central courtyard. Mytton Barn is the largest of these and forms one of the two corners, having the benefit of two gardens with private access and views and the garages being adjacent to the property.
The formal entrance is through an archway to the central courtyard. Here an arched double wooden door opens into the hallway. The ceiling is vaulted to the first floor and there are high quality Fitchet and Lovett oak floors through the hall and into the dining room. Throughout the property, and in this room, the ceilings have exposed beams and are unusually high (approximately 7'). The light into this room comes from the adjoining reception rooms through small paned glazed doors. From here you will have access to the drawing room which exudes an extremely comfortable yet spacious feel. A central open stone fireplace with an oak bressumer above, houses a wood burning Douvre stove. To either side are book shelves. Very attractive, large arched windows overlook the courtyard on one side and deep sill windows overlook the front garden on the other side of the room. The study, with its south facing aspect, has the best views in the house. You will find it hard not to be amazed when taking in the views over the gardens and the fields to the back of the barn. There is also a door leading out onto the terrace. The study area provides a lovely working environment or a tranquil place for relaxation. Also benefiting from the views is the kitchen/breakfast room. The room is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and floor cupboards with oak fronts. Integral appliances include a fridge and space for a dishwasher, oven and grill. There is a gas hob with extractor hood over which is set into ample work surfaces with a stainless steel sink also set in. The work surfaces extend around the room to form a breakfast bar which separates the working part of the kitchen from the breakfast room which has double doors leading out onto the terrace and the gardens. A further door leads into the utility room, which is shelved and has cupboards and work surfaces with a sink set in and plumbing for a washing machine below. A door leads out to the front garden, which is used most as it is closest to the garage and the parking.
Turned stairs rise to a mezzanine level which provides a range of bookshelves and balustrade overlooking the entrance hall. The landing is large and is often used as a play area. The master bedroom is very large with a range of built in wardrobes, a dressing area and a separate dressing room fitted with hanging rails and storage shelves. Deep window sills are a pretty feature and together with a velux window let in a lot of light. A further door leads to the en-suite bathroom comprising a Jacuzzi bath, wash basin, w.c and bidet.
There are two further bedrooms, one of which is a good single room and the other a large twin room. From the twin room is a door to the shower room which then opens into the family bathroom which has a door from the landing. This comprises a corner bath, separate shower, w.c and bidet and a washbasin set into a central vanity cabinet separating the bathroom with an archway over.
SETTING THE SCENE
The select group of homes are situated on the periphery of Papplewick village and are accessed by a gated driveway. In front of the horseshoe-shaped, stable block there is a communal, gravelled courtyard. A gate is set into the wall leading into the rear garden which measures just over a quarter of an acre (STMS). This is such a lovely garden as it flows away from the barns towards the countryside. There are many lovely mature trees in the garden and there is a sunken area filled with rhododendrons, peris and azalea. The swimming pool, which has given the family and friends great delight over the years, was renovated by the current owners. Adjacent to the barn is a stone built garden store and the terrace at the back of the barn enjoys far reaching views which is perfect for those summer nights entertaining.
WHAT'S NEARBY ()
Papplewick has a highly sought after C of E primary school within the village. Mytton Barn lies within the parish of Linby and Papplewick with regards to admissions. The village school feeds directly into the newly designed National Academy and there are other state and private schools in the area including a bus service to Nottingham High Schools and Trent College. There is plenty of open countryside nearby which is ideal for walking and horse riding. The current owner has enjoyed proximity to the local cricket club. The village also has a pub, but the nearest shopping facilities are in the small towns of Hucknall and Ravenshead, which are just three miles away.
Proceeding in a northerly direction out of Nottingham on the A60, Mansfield Road continue until reaching a large roundabout. Follow the A60, left towards Mansfield. Pass over the first set of traffic lights you reach and at the second set, turn left towards Papplewick Village. On entering the village turn right by The Griffin Pub up Main Street. Half a mile beyond the second sharp bend to the right there is a small triangle of green. Turn left here and take the 2nd small turning to the left into a private driveway which takes you down to Hall Mews. Once parked, go through the archway and the front door will be found on the right.
