Idyllically situated on a quiet lane within a popular mid-Somerset village, this stunning three/four bedroom barn conversion is a true delight and offers an abundance of space, style and charm throughout. Set within wonderful mature grounds totalling 1.24 acres, the property has delightful, far-reaching countryside views beyond. EPC rating D.

The epitome of 'escape to the country', this beautiful barn conversion offers the best of everything, with location, space, charm and grounds all very enviable. Converted approximately 25 years ago from the original barn and stable block, The Old Barn has recently undergone further improvements throughout by the current owners, with the property now effortlessly combining original character with stylish décor and modern benefits, including photovoltaic panels that generate an annual income in region of £1,900.

The accommodation is extremely well presented throughout and offers much versatility to suit a variety of family needs and sizes. With three large double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, and four spacious reception rooms on offer, the current configuration can very easily be altered if desired to make it four.

Accessed primarily from the front, an entrance vestibule complete with flagstone flooring welcomes you into the home, and provides ample space to remove shoes and coats before leading through to the wonderfully spacious reception hallway. Leading off to the right are three very generous double bedrooms, all of which would be suitable master bedrooms given their size and that each boast having their own en-suite bathroom facilities and two with built in wardrobes. All of the en-suites have been very well appointed with a modern white suite, with the largest bedroom offering a four piece suite comprising a stylish bath, shower enclosure, wash basin and WC. In addition, there is a walk-in dressing room with fitted wardrobes, and a pleasant outlook over the front, south-facing garden.

Away from the bedrooms and situated to the left of the hallway, is the cloakroom which has been stylishly appointed, along with a particularly light and spacious sitting room that features solid wood flooring and a multi-fuel stove, set within an attractive fireplace with an eye-catching, exposed stone surround. The room is awash with natural daylight from the French doors and windows to the front aspect, which allow plenty of light to flood in. In a nod to its past, characterful original timber stable panelling with a central opening separates the sitting room from the formal dining area, with both rooms having been tastefully decorated. From here, the inner hallway has doors leading off to the kitchen, the study, which has built in storage, fitted shelving units and a door to the rear garden, as well as snug/fourth bedroom which is currently being used as a second lounge and similarly has French doors to the rear, making the most of the beautiful vista down the garden.

The recently refitted kitchen is the heart of the property, and has been beautifully appointed with a limestone bespoke farmhouse-style range of handmade solid wood wall, base and display units, along with deep pan and utility drawers all of which are soft close. These are wonderfully complemented by quartz work surfaces and attractive tiling to both the floor and walls. The kitchen range also offers an integrated fridge and space for freestanding fridge and dishwasher as well a large AGA (oil and electric). There is ample space here to host a breakfast or dining table, whilst also offering a lovely outlook over the rear garden and a door onto the rear patio. The utility room is directly adjacent to the kitchen and has been similarly appointed with open shelving and base units and has further space and plumbing for automatic appliances within and access to the rear garden.

The property is situated in the village of Barton St David which has local amenities including a church, public house and playing field. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the neighbouring villages of Keinton Mandeville and Butleigh, both of which have primary schools and Post Office/stores. The historic town of Glastonbury is 6 miles, The Cathedral City of Wells 8.5 miles and the renowned Millfield Senior School on the outskirts of Street is 5 miles. For the commuter Castle Cary mainline station (London Paddington) is 7 miles as is the A303 at Podimore.

The property occupies a delightful edge of village location with stunning far reaching panoramic countryside views from the garden, including Glastonbury Tor to the west. The Old Barn sits within a generous plot of approximately 1.24 acres of attractive garden and land, covered patio and established lawn. The beautiful rear garden has been wonderfully landscaped and stocked with a beautiful array of flora, mature shrubs and plants, with an acre field adjoining, with fruit trees, raised beds, wild flower meadow and large pond with jetty towards the bottom. The garden is a haven for wildlife and offers colour and incredible views throughout the year. A full width stone patio abuts the property and has a stunning oak framed loggia with glazed roof and is a fantastic spot for entertaining, outside dining on a warm summers' day, or just for enjoying the sunny aspect and wonderful views.

Also on offer within the rear garden is a timber potting shed, with a further garden shed, greenhouse and several raised flower and vegetable beds in the field beyond, which affords prospective purchasers the option of a more self-sufficient or organic lifestyle. The current owners have enjoyed growing their own fruit and vegetables, in the garden, complemented by a variety of much loved hens for a number of years.

To the side, a large gravelled driveway provides ample off road parking and access to the detached stone built double garage, complete with power, lighting and two up and over doors to the front. An additional store room is located at the rear of the garage, which is ideal for storing mowers.
