If you’re seeking rural charm with contemporary style, look no further than a barn conversion.
If you were to draw up a list of features that every barn conversion needs, this pretty property - an estate in miniature in fact - would tick every box. Rural location? Yep. Weather-worn stone? Of course. Galleried ceilings? Absolutely. A mezzanine floor? Duh!
It wouldn't be a stretch to describe Butterfield Farm as a dream come true for someone seeking the good life - not only does it deliver a six-bedroom barn conversion, but a three-bedroom farmhouse too, which will be handy for the in-laws. It's clear too that the words 'attention to detail' were not merely bandied about during this conversion, but taken very seriously indeed; it's utterly beautiful.
With just over 62 acres, there's plenty of space for your llamas, should you decide not to do real farming, and oodles of room for the horses. Indeed, there's an actual barn with 12 stables, a tack-room and a staff room.
Seriously though, this is the sort of property that country dreams are made of, offering not only a stunning location in which to live, but a beautiful home and business waiting to happen.
Form an orderly queue, please.

Moss Farm Barn, Siddington
Crafted in rosy Cheshire brick over 150 years ago, this barn conversion starts with a five-bar gate and just gets better and better.
Offering five bedrooms and five bathrooms and the sort of open-plan living we all drool over in Grand Designs, this is a truly beautiful example of the genre. Throw in exposed oak beams, solid oak floors, York stone flags, open fires, an Aga and a walled garden, and your barn conversion cup will truly runneth over.
The Coach House, Mellor
When is a barn conversion not a barn conversion? When it's a stable conversion. Don't raise that brow at me - cows, horses…they both eat hay and stand on straw.
First built in the 18th century, this property now offers four bedrooms (two en-suite), a huge kitchen and a cosy, split-level sitting room.
It has the required exposed ancient beams and stone-flagged floors, of course, plus lead-paned style windows for the ultimate period-property look.
