Herons Reach, East Langton is an amazing barn conversion, surrounded by rolling fields and a real feeling of space.
This large, five-bedroomed family home is nestled in beautiful gardens and is surrounded by rolling fields and countryside. It has the best of both worlds - situated on the outskirts of the village – a short walk to Church Langton gives a much sought-after primary school - and Market Harborough with its amenities is a short car journey away.
Herons Reach is situated at the bottom of a shared tree-lined drive, running alongside a fishing lake full of local wildlife.
The barns were converted in 2002 by a father and son building team supported by skilled craftsmen. Reclaimed brick was used not only to construct this home, but also to create the impressive feature fireplace, exposed brick internal walls and feature over the arch in the hall.
This place really does have it all.
This home is a real find - an opportunity that comes on the market rarely. The current owners have lived happily here for “nearly twenty wonderful years”, raising their family and enjoying the beautiful location, the tranquillity and the bird song – the views are what sold this place all those years ago, and there are so many wish list items that come with this property that it’s sure to tick your boxes. This home has been filled with laughter and love, a real hub for family and friends. And now it could be yours to enjoy just as much, if not more.
When standing outside the front of Herons Reach, the beautifully maintained front garden and gravel drive sets the tone - and the need to explore things further is a must.
With parking for six or more cars, a spacious two-car garage complete with plenty of opportunities for storage and a beautiful wooden, open porch, first impressions are excellent. Feature lighting under the eaves and within the gravel ensure that those impressions are met at every time of the day.
Once that front door is open, those first impressions are well justified. The hallway with natural stone floor and feature above the archway leads to a downstairs bathroom, utility room, living room and guest bedroom with ensuite bathroom, then further into the beautiful kitchen, dining room and sitting room, from which a further set of stairs -which lead to the master suite - utility room and the garage can be accessed.
The colour palate throughout Herons Reach is tasteful and neutral, making the most of natural materials and bouncing the light around each room nicely. The exposed beams accent the vaulted ceilings in an understated, elegant way.
From the hall is access to the bright, spacious living, dining and kitchen areas – perfect for entertaining and family time.
The Shaker-style kitchen is well-appointed, housing many hidden storage solutions, a fully fitted pantry with sink and range cooker. The central island gives more than enough counter space and the open plan nature of this space is perfect for keeping an eye on everyone! It’s a great party space and ideal for modern family life. A beautiful natural stone floor flows throughout this space. The light and views created by the large windows and patio doors give a real sense of bringing the outside in, which is further enhanced by the exposed beams and brickwork. A laundry room has all the storage needed for wet coats and muddy boots, along with linen. A real practical space for the location of this property.
The Garden Room is the perfect dining area, leading straight from the kitchen, with those exposed beams and brickwork showcasing views for days over the countryside. This room is so light and airy, it has a real feeling of space. Plenty of in-built storage solutions mix practicality with beauty – for example, the top of the wine cooler is hand crafted from hand-picked, reclaimed wood.
The Glass Room is an absolute stunner! The underfloor heating and automatic, rain-sensing windows add that touch of real style and the high ceilings keep the feeling of space and light abundant. The floor to ceiling patio doors push back to allow access to the garden and those views beyond. This room is one to really fall in love with.
The Sitting Room, with access to the bedroom corridor is a cosy, yet light room, with oak flooring and beautiful feature brick fireplace housing a wood burning stove. It’s the perfect place for relaxing in the warmer months with the doors wide open, and in the cooler times with a roaring fire and a good book.
The corridors keep the airy feel of the rest of the house and branch off into three well-sized bedrooms and a fresh, generous family bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle and everything needed for those busy mornings.
The master bedroom is a substantial size and has lots of storage - big enough for even the most well-dressed of us. The well-designed en-suite bathroom, with LAufen fittings and Collingwood lighting, enhances the space further and the views from the large windows give this room a relaxed, calming vibe.
The guest bedroom, with exposed beams and pine flooring benefits from an excellently fitted en-suite shower room with top of the range Laufen fixtures and fittings. There is plenty of space for a big bed and furniture to match, creating an effortlessly cool space for guests to bed down for the night.
Bedrooms three, four and five are a great size and tastefully decorated in neutral tones, with pine flooring and south-facing views over the countryside – perfect for bedrooms, a nursery or study space.
The outside space around Heron’s Reach is incredible!
The garden to the rear is huge and well maintained, with lots of sun traps to lie back in and decompress from the day. The open fields beyond and established fruit trees create an oasis of colour and calm, creating a mindful retreat away from the world.
