About This Property

Set in the beautiful heart of this unspoilt and well regarded Somerset village and offering easy access to Millfield School and local towns, this architect-designed barn conversion offers an interesting and homely blend of characterful living spaces, a wonderfully landscaped garden extending to 0.27 of an acre and glorious views over protected farmland. EPC rating E.

Burt’s Barn has a rich history dating back originally to 1787, with further various reclaimed materials added when converted around 40 years ago, giving this wonderful family home a truly unique feel and style. Burt’s Barn has provided a cherished and loved family home for over 20 years and offers an exciting opportunity for a family or those looking for a peaceful rural home to now make their own. The barn offers well laid out accommodation with a spacious and welcoming hallway splitting the old and the new, complete with a traditional staircase and fireplace with fitted wood burning stove. The old barn offers a wonderful principal living place with an impressive inglenook, exposed stone and an old traditional door still in place. This room further pleases with half of the space offering full ceiling height up to the mezzanine over and the room is completed with doors out to the courtyard leading around to the main garden. A useful utility and cloakroom sit alongside the main hallway which then leads through to a wonderful family dining room, with fantastic Georgian style fireplace, overlooking the garden and the wonderful countryside beyond. The kitchen runs parallel to the dining room, with a well-planned working space with ample cupboards, breakfast bar, tiled floor and window, again enjoying an attractive outlook. A door leads from the kitchen into a sweet little sunroom. The first floor offers a central landing with fitted storage. Straight ahead of you, you enter the mezzanine which forms a pleasant study area or potentially a 4th bedroom (if some stud work was to be added). Bedroom 3 sits alongside the study space and offers a well-proportioned double bedroom with low-level storage and a wash hand basin. The further 2 large double bedrooms sit at the rear, both with fitted wardrobes and quite exceptional views on offer. The master also has an ensuite shower room. The first floor is completed with a family bathroom offering a generous size space and separate bath and shower.

The village of Compton Dundon is located within easy reach of Bruton, Taunton and Street, and surrounded by towns, villages and countryside that epitomise the very best of English countryside living. The village benefits from great links to the area’s many excellent schools, including Millfield, one of the UK’s leading independent educational establishments. Compton Dundon’s location offers the best of all worlds, with cultural offerings and first-class cuisine catered for by the county town of Taunton, the highly acclaimed bistros, café bars and restaurants of tiny Bruton and the shops of Somerset’s largest village, Street. Meanwhile, the miles of countryside, huge skies and rolling hills offer escapes into the fresh air and a plethora of locations for dog-walking and family outings. Situated in a prominent position above the village, Dundon Beacon is an Iron Age Hill Fort and historical landmark set in its own nature reserve, that offers stunning and far-reaching views over the village and beyond. The village of Compton Dundon is peaceful and idyllic, bordering the Somerset Levels to the west and the Polden Hills, rich in natural beauty, to the east. It has an array of local and very well attended amenities including a traditional pub, an active village hall, and the quintessential local cricket club and church, while the amenities of Street are only two miles to the north and Somerton three miles south. Nearby A39, A37 and A303 roads provide easy commuter access to Bath, Bristol, Yeovil and beyond with the railway station at Castle Cary having direct services to London Paddington and other mainline stations, allowing easy access to city life from your new
home in the countryside.

The property offers a drive running to the east elevation and leading up to the garage which has light and power and is of a good size to offer ample store or workspace, depending on the buyer’s needs. The garden runs to the South of the property with a wonderful sunny aspect and is beautifully cared for and well planned with a plethora of seasonal colours in the beds adjoining the property and leading down, the garden is interspersed with a range of native and specimen trees. The lower section of land was added to the garden at a later date and was changed to domestic use and certain restrictions were granted, which the vendor adhered to by forming a boundary with the field with a native hedge and planting a small orchard. A vegetable garden complete with greenhouse and store offers further lifestyle appeal to the property. The garden in all extends to 0.2751 of an acre.
