Four bedroom barn conversion in the village of Curry Rivel, near Langport and Taunton in Somerset
Stone barn conversion with views over farmland in the delightful village of Curry Rivel, near Langport and Taunton in Somerset with good access to transport, schooling and leisure activities
An older conversion of a stone storage barn and cowshed to form a four-bed dwelling. The barn is one of two Grade II listed properties expertly converted by a specialist local contractor in 2000 with the benefit of a 10-year NHBC conversion warranty.
Sitting centrally within its own grounds of approximately 0.4 acres, the barn enjoys a private location in the lee of the parish church and has uninterrupted views across open fields.
Set on the edge of the delightful village of Curry Rivel, it has all local amenities including shops, primary school, award winning restaurant and pubs, garage and village green, all within 5 minutes walking distance.
Close by is the small market town of Langport, which has a more comprehensive range of facilities including doctor and dental surgeries. The property is also well situated for access to the A303, which provides a fast alternative route to London and the West Country.
Taunton, the county town (11miles), provides comprehensive facilities with a good range of shops, excellent schools within both the state and private sectors, a theatre, County Cricket ground and a main line railway link to London (Paddington). The renowned Millfield schools are also close by in Glastonbury and Street (10 miles) as is the award winning Strode College. Both towns have a wide variety of shops and leisure facilities including Clark’s village. The M5 motorway (J25) is accessed on the eastern side of the town and close to this junction there is a large out of town shopping and leisure complex. There are numerous golf courses in the area, racing at Wincanton, Taunton and Bath, and County cricket at Taunton.
The conversion has been undertaken to the highest standard of workmanship, with quality fixtures and fittings throughout.
The property is constructed in local blue lias stone under a clay tiled roof and these natural materials are complimented internally by the use of bespoke hardwood joinery for internal doors, windows and the central staircase. Flagstone and solid oak flooring are to be found in the main distribution areas.
The property has a genuine air of maturity, meeting modern building control regulations and insulation criteria, whilst retaining many original features of barn style living.
The Hoist House is so called to reflect the retention of the original cider press hoist above the staircase - one indication of the imaginative and creative way in which the conversion has been carried out.
The property has oil-fired central heating to radiators.
Good use has been made of the available space and the accommodation comprises:
kitchen / breakfast room
cloakroom with shower
double bedroom with ensuite bathroom
three further bedrooms (one with ensuite bathroom)
There are gardens to both the front and the rear of the property.
The barn is approached over a private roadway from the highway, leading to a parking area for several vehicles and a generous double garage. The property is enclosed within natural stonewalls and timber rail fencing and the gardens have been landscaped to include flag paving, well stocked planting borders and lawn areas.
A stunning conversion in all respects.
