Rarely available a beautifully presented detached barn conversion, set on a quiet country lane in a sought after village.

Beautifully presented, converted Somerset Blue Lias stone barn in an small development of just three barns by renowned local house builders and designers Day and Co Construction. The property is spread over three floors. There are three generously proportioned bedrooms, two luxury bathrooms, a spacious light filled sitting room with a wood burning stove, a stunning designer kitchen. The island incorporates a breakfast bar for casual seating and the design allows for a dining table to seat 8 making this a true family room and a great space for entertaining as the French doors open onto the patio area, paved in the same beautiful natural Limestone as the heated kitchen floor giving a sense of flow between indoors and out. A downstairs W.C. is located beside the wide half glazed double doors which separate the dining area from the sitting room when needed. The property also benefits from a nice laundry room with plenty of storage. The light and spacious living room lends itself to many layouts and functions with a focal point around the log burning stove and exposed stone wall behind. The lighting and electrical plan allow for further areas for seating/play or study. Hardwood French doors lead to the front garden area and driveway. A bespoke Oak staircase leads you from the sitting room. The first floor landing boasts an impressive full height galleried stairwell, lit by a large roof light and an eye-catching iron chandelier. The vaulted ceiling adds a real sense of space to the house.

The landing leads to a spacious light filled master bedroom with views over open countryside, vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. An oak door opens into to well-proportioned luxury en-suite bathroom with wall to wall double ended bath, large separate quadrant shower, W.C., basin and a dual power heated towel rail. Finished in smooth natural limestone tiles for an indulgent high end finish and again the vaulted ceiling and exposed beams offer a feeling of space and character.

Bedroom 2 is a good size double room with views over the private garden and orchard beside. These views are shared by bedroom 3 which is also an ample size double room and like all rooms in the house the bedrooms are not overlooked. The main family bathroom is also located on the first floor and similarly boasts a double ended bath, large offset quadrant shower, W.C., basin, heated towel rail (again dual power) and a sky light in the vaulted ceiling adds to the feeling of spaciousness. This bathroom is finished in a warm shade of natural travertine tiles to compliment the exposed trusses. Thoughtful design is carried on throughout the house with the addition of a handy tiled alcove by the bath.

Up the next flight of stairs on the second floor is a further galleried room of generous proportions which lends itself to a multitude of uses including a large double bedroom. The airing cupboard is situated here and the room also looks over the private garden and adjoining orchard, the window being in the location of the original hayloft door.

Surrounded by open country side and situated on a quiet lane half a mile from the highly desirable village of Stoke St Gregory which boasts pubs, village school and a village shop. Ideally located 6 miles from the Country Town of Taunton with excellent access to M5 (J25) and A303, with easy access to the mainline station to London Paddington and Bristol Airport.
