Overview
House Network Ltd are delighted to present this five double bedroom converted barn set over three floors which has a "wow factor" throughout. Set within in delightful grounds with Double Garage, Summer House and driveway parking for numerous vehicles.

The Old Barn was converted over thirty years ago from a traditional stone-built Somerset long barn. It has been completely renovated and modernised by the current owner who extended the property by adding a further floor which has garden views throughout.

The exterior of the property has retained the visual integrity of the original barn. The most striking features on approaching the facade are the two imposing stone arches, low level stone buttresses and the three oval windows. The rear aspect of the barn has the appearance of a more traditional country house.

Barn conversions can be a compromise in terms of space and location. However, this particular property offers ample space both internally and externally and its location, nestled between the old church and open fields, is exemplary.

The property briefly consists of a spacious Entrance Hallway accessed via a solid oak door with a galleried landing above. The open plan arrangement leads into an extensive Kitchen/Dining/Lounge area with a Jetmaster fire set into a brick surround. Double doors open from the dining area to the rear garden and patio. There is a large walk-in pantry leading from the Kitchen.

A rear hallway from the Entrance Hall brings you to the Family room, W.C and Utility room.

On the first floor, the open plan Galleried Landing, with its dual aspect, has doors leading to the Family Bathroom, Master Bedroom, Bedroom Two and Bedroom Three.
The Master Bedroom, with a triple aspect has an open plan En-Suite Bathroom with wet room area, two sinks and roll top bath. There is a separate enclosed W.C.

Bedroom Two also has a dual aspect with open plan En-Suite with wet room area and dressing area.

Bedroom Three is located next to the Master Bedroom and currently used as a Dressing Room.

The Second Floor Landing with two velux windows and wood/glass galleried staircase provide access to Bedrooms Four and Five, both with their own En-Suite Shower Rooms.

The property further benefits from a Double Garage with storage above, a Summer House set in well stocked gardens and driveway parking. Gas central heating and partial double glazing.
