An attractive five bedroom barn conversion surrounded by gardens and paddock totalling nearly an acre. The property offers well proportioned and flexible accommodation with oil fired central heating and wood burning stove set in the idyllic and peaceful hamlet of Chesterblade.


Description

A superb five bedroom barn conversion, surrounded by its own grounds of nearly an acre and set in a delightful position in the pretty hamlet of Chesterblade. Corner Barn was converted from a traditional barn in the late 1990s. It has since been extended by the present owners to provide high quality accommodation which is both spacious and well-proportioned with excellent natural light. It comprises an entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, sitting room, dining room/study, five bedrooms with en-suite to master bedroom, dressing room and family bathroom. There are outbuildings and ample parking and a double garage with office/studio above with potential to create self-contained annexe accommodation (subject to P.P).

Grounds and Gardens

Outside, the property is approached through a five bar gate to an extensive parking area in front of the double garage and the stone-built garden store. The well-stocked garden surrounds the property with a beautiful cottage garden area to the front, adjoining a lawn and a large west-facing patio. Patios extend around the property and there is a further lawn to the rear and a number of terraced natural stone walls. There are vegetable beds, a Hartley Botanic greenhouse and a large timber shed as well as an orchard area with a variety of productive fruit trees including apple, pear, plum and damson. Beyond the garden is a small paddock with field gate access from the drive and including a chicken house and timber tool store.

Situation

Chesterblade is a charming, picturesque and sought after hamlet, centred around the tiny Church of St Mary dating from the 12th century. It comprises a small number of mainly period houses and cottages built predominantly from the local Doulting stone. Properties here rarely come up for sale. It is surrounded by unspoilt, rolling countryside, including the ancient hill fort at Small Down Knoll, from where there are panoramic views to the hills of Dorset to the south east and Glastonbury Tor and the Blackdown Hills to the south west. Chesterblade has an undeniable air of peace and tranquility and is well away from any main roads. It is, however, easily accessible with Shepton Mallet only 3 miles away and Wells and Frome both within 10 miles. Bristol Airport is approximately 45 minutes drive away. Approximately 5 miles away is the small town of Bruton that has been rapidly gaining an international reputation thanks to the Hauser & Wirth gallery and arts centre. The attractive village of Batcombe is nearby and is home to the renowned pub, The Three Horseshoes. A little further afield is Castle Cary from where trains run to London, Paddington. The area is well served with excellent schools. All Hallows prep school is just over 2 miles away and the Bruton schools, Millfield, Hazlegrove, The Blue School at Wells, Wells Cathedral School and Downside are all within easy driving distance.
