Welcome to this exceptional detached, non-listed barn conversion, nestled in the picturesque village of Naseby in Northamptonshire. As its name suggests, The Old Hay Barn was a former hay barn that we believe dates back to the late 1800's. Converted in 2016 by the current owners, this stunning property offers just under 2000 sq ft of spacious living accommodation with 3/4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen/diner, 2 reception rooms and an office, making it an ideal home for families seeking comfort and style. This home sits on 1.93 acres and has its own lake! There’s also a large garage and fantastic development potential. Step inside and be captivated by the charm and elegance of this remarkable barn conversion.


The main front door is in the centre of the property, however there are 2 other front doors as well, one on each end of the house. The ground floor boasts a beautiful kitchen/diner with solid oak countertops, a white double oven Aga, a dishwasher and an under-counter fridge. There's also an oversized island that seats 12! The utility room benefits from an under-counter freezer and space for a washing machine. There's a welcoming family room which could also be used as a dining room, and a cozy sitting room featuring a log burner, perfect for those chilly evenings. The seamless blend of contemporary fittings and traditional features creates a truly captivating ambiance.

There are two staircases, one at each end of the property. The first staircase leads you to two spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms, providing ample room for relaxation and privacy. The primary bedroom boasts a walk-in-wardrobe, an en-suite shower room and a Juliette balcony overlooking the garden and lake. The second bedroom also benefits from its own en-suite shower room. The second staircase can be found just off the kitchen/diner and leads you to the office and third bedroom with en-suite shower room. The office could be used as a 4th bedroom, however, the space could easily be reconfigured to have 2 bedrooms sharing a Jack and Jill en-suite and still have space for a small office.

One of the key features of this property is its development potential. There is a large attached barn (approx. 800sq ft) offering endless possibilities. Subject to the necessary planning permissions, this barn could be converted to extend the main property or it could become a fantastic annexe. Furthermore, remnants of a detached Dutch barn also add to the potential for further development or creative use. This could become an annexe, office space, a studio or a gym. There's also a strip of land behind the property which could be turned into a courtyard garden or used to store cars or a campervan, etc.

For those seeking storage solutions, this property offers a large garage which fits 4 cars. This would be perfect for a car collection or a workshop. There is also ample driveway parking, ensuring plenty of space for multiple vehicles. Situated on a sprawling plot of just under 2 acres, this property offers breathtaking countryside views that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. The most noteworthy feature is the picturesque lake with its own island, providing a tranquil and serene setting perfect for kayaking, canoeing and fishing as there are carp, roach and perch in the water.
