About This Property

A substantial 6/7 bedroom barn conversion with versatile and spacious accommodation, landscaped gardens, parking and garaging. Located in the popular village of West Camel.

Parsons Pightle is an impressive detached former barn constructed of White Lias, dating back to around 1780, having been converted into a residential dwelling in 1983. The property retains a wealth of character charm and original features such as oak beams, vaulted ceilings and exposed stone walls.

The current owners have modernised the property to a very high standard and it now offers flexible accommodation, arranged over three floors, to suit a variety of modern living styles. In particular the ground floor has undergone re-configuration allowing for the previously established B&B to run successfully for a number of years, but also offers generous space as a family home along with scope for creating a separate annexe for dependant relatives.

Despite the property’s humble origins it has been elevated to a unique and adaptable family home with the retention of original features along with sympathetically added aspects such as the stunning stained glass panels in the living room.
The living room boasts a delightful vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers and triple aspect windows allowing for plenty of natural light. Despite its size the room has a cosy feel with a striking fireplace with wood burner inset and provides ample space for entertaining/dining and relaxing making it the heart of the home.

The accommodation is arranged in an “upside down” configuration with the living area on the first floor which can be accessed from both sides of the property via external staircases as well internal staircases to both the ground and second floor.

From the living room a door leads through into the kitchen, having been upgraded to an exceptional standard with a range of modern wall and base units with an integrated double oven, 5 ring induction hob with extractor over, double Belfast sink, waste disposal unit and dishwasher along with space for an American style fridge/freezer.

A central island provides additional work surfacing and storage along with space for a wine cooler and a breakfast bar. To the rear large windows provide a pleasant outlook across the garden and countryside beyond creating an ideal informal dining/relaxing area.

Beyond is a useful office space which could provide an additional bedroom benefitting from an en-suite cloakroom.

Accessed from the living room via its own staircase is the master bedroom suite offering a generously sized double room with Velux windows on both aspects allowing for plenty of natural light and offering delightful views to the rear. Comprising a range of built in storage along with an en-suite bathroom.

The remainder of the accommodation is located on the ground floor which can be accessed both internally and externally and comprises a utility/breakfast room with French doors opening to the rear, a cloakroom accessed from the central hallway and a separate living space along with five double bedrooms, three of which benefit from ensuite bath/shower rooms, with the four bedrooms at the rear having access onto the garden.
