About This Property

A stunning contemporary conversion of this magnificent Grade II Listed Barn providing versatile accommodation and far reaching country views with grounds of approximately 1.75 acres.

This magnificent contemporary conversion forms part of a small exclusive residential development centred around the ancient homestead of Manor Farm, and enjoys far reaching views across the surrounding countryside. Built in mellow stone with brick detailing set beneath a clay tiled roof, this unique property oozes character but benefits from all the advantages of 21st Century living, exceptional insulation and underfloor heating.
Offering approximately 3000 sq ft of living space the accommodation is particularly well proportioned and versatile. Approached through a deep entrance porch, with glazed inner doors, the ground floor is largely open plan with a triple aspect living room enhanced by oak flooring, exposed stonework and timbers, opening into a fabulous kitchen/dining area that overlooks open countryside. Comprehensively fitted with high quality Sheraton British kitchen units, this room is also triple aspect with two sets of bi-folding doors to the garden terrace and open to first floor level. Features include granite worktops, reclaimed stone flooring and high quality Neff appliances, with a separate utility room. The ground floor is completed by a spacious study or family room, cloakroom and fifth bedroom with full en-suite facilities. An open staircase leads to the main landing with country views, wood flooring and exposed stonework with an inner landing giving access to four beautiful double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities and a family bathroom.

Set within 1.75 acres, the gardens and grounds are largely informal and enjoy a South east facing aspect overlooking unspoilt open countryside. A gravel driveway leads in to an extensive parking area with plenty of space for a garage (subject to planning). A South facing paved stone terrace provides the ideal place to relax and ranch style fencing separates the main garden from an area of gently sloping paddock.

The property occupies an accessible and central position within the village of Forton. The area comprises a predominantly agricultural landscape primarily comprising pasture and arable land interspersed with an abundance of woodland.

The town of Chard lies approximately 1.2 miles distant and offers a good range of everyday shopping, banking and educational services including Primary and Secondary schooling.

The Somerset county town of Taunton affords an excellent range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities befitting an important regional and administrative centre, including three noted public schools.

There are good road and rail communications with access to the M5 motorway available at Taunton (J25). Main line rail links to London Waterloo are available from Axminster, with links to London Paddington available at Taunton.

Access to the A30/A303 at Ilminster provides an easy link to London and the south east with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

To the south lies the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, with pretty coastal towns and villages such as Lyme Regis, Seaton and Sidmouth.
