Barton Lodge is a magnificent and substantial country home, built in 1839 by Sir Arthur Benjamin Clifton the owner of Clifton Hall and has been lovingly renovated by the current owners while maintaining the original period features, character and grandeur. The property sits in 2.7 acres incorporating formal lawns and woodland. Barton Lodge has excellent transport links to the City of Nottingham, East Midlands Airport and the North and South via the M1.

Barton Lodge was built in 1839 by Sir Arthur Benjamin Clifton as a Dower House for his mother although whether she ever moved to the property from Clifton Hall is unknown. Arthur was a military man and served extensively in the Peninsula War as well as serving at the Battle of Waterloo, taking over control of the 2nd Union Cavalry Brigade on the death of Major General Sir William Ponsonby. The family were good friends of the Byrons and an avenue in the grounds is named Admirals Walk after the then occupant of Newstead Abbey, Admiral Byron.

Leading form the entrance hall are three grand reception rooms including an oak panelled study / breakfast room, formal dining room and fabulous drawing room. All reception rooms contain original corniced ceilings and fire places with wood burning stoves. Leading from a second hallway are various other room including downstairs WC and laundry room. This second hallways opens out into a newly renovated open plan kitchen / diner that is naturally lit by 3/4 height windows. The contemporary styled kitchen consists of floor standing and wall mounted units with light composite work tops with breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include a large American style fridge freezer, electric range cooker and hob with extractor above, dishwasher and Belfast style sink with chrome feeder tap.

To the first floor level and accessed from a central landing area with 360 degree decorative wrought iron balustrade are five spacious double bedrooms the master of which has a spacious en-suite bathroom. This contemporary styled bathroom consists of his and her wash basins, double shower cubicle and heated towel rail. Additionally to the first floor is a large family bathroom with stand alone roll top bath, double shower cubicle, wash basin, low level WC and bidet.

To the exterior the property sits amid a 2.7 acre plot accessed through electric gates and a winding driveway. The grounds incorporate extensive formal lawns, mature woodland, feature well, orchard and walks. The property has ample off road parking double garage and various outbuildings, potting sheds, workshops and a rather unique Octagon room with fireplace.

Barton-in-Fabis is a tranquil village located on the Nottingham Leicestershire border and has remained relatively untouched considering its proximity to Nottingham.
