The entrance of this unique home benefits from a glass wall dividing a small study area plus a cloakroom. This cosy entrance then opens into the dramatic double height heart of the barn. When converting this wonderful barn the current owned retained the exposed A-frame of the tall ceiling creating a galleried landing on the first floor. The central atrium has a wall of windows to the front and rear and is flanked by reception areas with lower ceilings creating a comfortable contrast. All open plan, on one side is the sitting room with a large Inglenook fireplace with a central wood burning stove, beamed ceiling and exposed stone walls adding character. The other side has a dining area which in turn leads to the kitchen. The farmhouse kitchen has fitted units under a granite work surface. With views out to the garden and a central island this is perfect for everyday dining. The adjacent accommodation could be a self-contained annexe if required. Currently there is utility room, but with all the electrics designed that it could be fitted out as a second kitchen. The smart sitting room also has its own entrance and upstairs is a double bedroom and a stylish bathroom.
The first floor galleried landing reveals the superb exposed beams and highlights the atrium. The master suite has a full height tall ceiling with exposed beams, the view across the rolling hills is wonderful. There are two walk-in wardrobes, plus steps down to a large dressing room and an en-suite bathroom. The en-suite bathroom is a lovely design with a free-standing bath and a slate finish. The family bathroom is also of note with a limestone theme including a large walk-in shower unit. The two further bedrooms on this floor are both doubles and also benefit from those lovely views. In addition there is a good attic space that has been commandeered to a games room.
Inglesbatch is a small hamlet 5 miles south of Bath city centre. The Barn is approached at the end of a pretty country lane in this charming rural community. A large gravelled drive fronts the handsome façade. A stone outbuilding provides covered parking plus two storage rooms. Subject to the usual consents and services this could become a home office or separate cottage. The garden and views are a primary attraction of this country home. A circular stone terrace leads out from the centre of the house with a raised border and climbing plants adding colour and scent. A level lawn is enclosed from the surrounding fields by fencing and hedges. A few steps up the lawn culminates in an attractive herb garden and vegetable patch. A Wisteria clad pergola divides this from the practical storage and shed area. An expansive raised deck is the best vantage spot on a summer evening taking in those stunning views. A children’s raised summer house with a play area underneath will keep them happy whilst you are relaxing.
