What an opportunity... Nestled into the Mendip hills with far reaching views toward Glastonbury Tor is Swallow Barn. This incredibly versatile space is offered as a ‘ready to move into’ four bedroomed family home, but could hold potential for working from home, income generation or multi-generational living. Having been beautifully converted from a barn by the current owners, and offered on the open market for the first time since its conversion, this spacious home must be viewed to appreciate everything that it offers.
Set back from the road, this tucked-away gem, primarily overlooks the fabulous garden and benefits from sun throughout the day. On the ground floor there is a large, dual aspect sitting room with premium wood burning stove, and double doors opening onto a raised patio. The generous dining room also has patio doors leading to the garden, whilst the kitchen/breakfast room steps down into a sun-filled conservatory with access onto the main patio area and splendid views across the garden.
Also on the ground floor is a downstairs WC, boot/utility room, ample storage cupboards, a study, modern wet room and presently a large downstairs bedroom with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams which equally could lend itself to a whole variety of uses including a gym, hobby room or children’s playroom.
Upstairs there is a family bathroom, an en suite for the Master bedroom and two additional double bedrooms all of which overlook the pretty garden and offer far reaching across the Somerset levels to Glastonbury Tor and beyond.
The grounds are extremely picturesque with the garden being mainly laid to lawn with well stocked borders and a graveled path allowing for a car to drive to the workshop/garage. The garden is of a good size with other features including a vegetable patch (presently covered over), a large summer house with a power supply along with water and a telephone connection. The large detached single story barn offers workshop/garage space together with storage and a garden store which could potentially be developed (subject to appropriate consents). To the front of the property is a large driveway with parking for multiple cars enclosed by a 5-bar gate with a double carport.
The desirable village of East Horrington is situated 2 miles outside of the cathedral city of Wells. Wells is the smallest city in England and offers a high proportion of independent shops and boutiques, banks, restaurants, public houses and cinema. The stunning market square holds a farmer's market on Wednesday and Saturday.
There are excellent schools available including West Horrington Primary School (within easy walking distance) which has an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating, and the extremely sought-after Wells Blue secondary school. There are several independent schools in the area including Wells Cathedral School and Millfield School.
The property is situated within good commuting distance of the Georgian city of Bath and the regional centre of Bristol, and a twenty minute drive to Castle Cary Station (rail links to London Paddington and Exeter). Bristol International Airport is 18 miles away.
