About This Property

A charming and spacious 3 bedroom detached barn conversion offering secluded gardens amounting to approximately a quarter of an acre. Attached garage and workshop. Detached studio/office. EPC Band E

Set in an attractive setting, The Stone Barn was converted in 1980 into a charming 3 bedroom home, set in a delightful private plot. Main elevations are of local stone with brick dressings and roofs are covered with clay tiles. The property offers light and well-proportioned rooms with the opportunity for autonomous ground floor living. The interior is characterised by plenty of natural light as many of the rooms have a double aspect. Features such as exposed stonework, roof timbers and a particularly handsome fireplace in the sitting room all contribute to the warm living environment.
On the ground floor a spacious outer hall with tiled floor opens into a welcoming main hall. To one side is the cloakroom, ground floor bedroom with fitted wardrobes and high specification en suite shower. A door from the hall opens into a charming split level main reception room focused on an impressive stone fireplace with a newly installed woodburner. The dining room has exposed beams and adjoins a light and spacious kitchen/breakfast room complete with a two oven oil fired Aga and recently installed magnet kitchen with electric eye level double oven and four ring induction hob. A stable door leads out of the kitchen to the garden. The kitchen is supported by a good sized utility room with plenty of space for coats and boots as well as extensive store cupboards. There is also the opportunity to extend the ground floor, with planning permission in place for an additional reception room / annexe area.

On the first floor, the landing gives access to two bedrooms, the principal bedroom being of generous double proportions with exposed roof timbers fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom.
Further improvements to the property in recent years include a new air source heat pump central heating system, double glazed windows, roof maintenance and new bathroom suites. There is also the addition of a timber lodge in located in the garden. This versatile space is currently used as an excellent office space with power, telephone and broadband connected.

The Stone Barn lies a few miles to the north and east of Sherborne within short motoring distance of both the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil. Both Sherborne and Yeovil provide an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton.

A five bar gate leads to a generous parking area for 4-5 cars and turning area adjacent to the garage with plenty of work shop space, an electrically operated up and over door, and a ladder staircase up to a loft over. The gardens provide a high level of privacy and seclusion and take the form of well maintained and generally level areas of lawn, studded with specimen trees and given shape and form by well stocked borders. There is a screened and productive vegetable and soft fruit garden, together with a number of fruit trees. From the upper part of the garden, there are views over the house to the southwest, taking in the lightly wooded farmland of the Blackmore Vale. This is where the detached barn is located, a perfect place to unwind. In all the site extends to just over quarter of an acre.

Services: Air Source Heat Pump. Mains electric and Water. Oil fired AGA. Shared septic tank drainage.
