Property SummaryBroad Street Farm Barn is a fabulous south facing conversion situated in the pretty hamlet of Stoney Stratton in the heart of rural Somerset. This is a fine opportunity to purchase a wonderful existing three bedroom home with the first fix already undertaken to create a further two or three reception rooms and two further bedrooms. This exceptionally unique home is entered through large glass doors opening into a breathtaking, double vaulted, sitting room with a dramatic oak beam structure overhead. This unusually sizeable sitting room is the heart of the home with plenty of space for seating around an impressive stone fireplace with a wood burning stove, and views overlooking the countryside. The kitchen is another generous space with handmade units and a large central island with plenty of room for a dining table and a conveniently located utility to hide away white goods. From the kitchen is a door (currently blocked up) which would open into the extension to reconfigure as required.
A wide and open hallway leads from the sitting room to a family bathroom and three light, bright double bedrooms all overlooking the beautifull landscaped gardens to the front of the home. The current owners are proposing to create an additional bathroom at the end of the hallway before the completion of a sale.
A pair of wooden gates open to reveal a sweeping, gravelled, tree lined driveway leading to a paddock, a sizeable strip of lawn and plenty of parking for several cars. A pretty gravelled pathway proceeds to the house and is flanked by a beautifully planted parterre displaying an abundance of shrubs and flora. A courtyard style area, with a stone paved terrace and ornamental fishpond, is the perfect place to sit and relax taking in the views of the fields beyond.
An attractive stone outbuilding offers further storage but also offers huge potential as additional 2 storey living or rental accommodation, office, studio / workshop.
The neighbouring village of Evercreech is a lively community with a school, church, pub, doctors surgery, post office and local shops. For more information visit www.everecreech.org.uk.
