Situated in a popular village, this unique property has been extended to incorporate a stunning barn conversion attached to the original cottage.
Farndale offers flexible living accommodation mainly on ground floor level with much natural light and a feeling of space. The conversion was sympathetically designed and retains many period features such as arched doors and exposed beams whilst there is scope to update if required.
With a convenient layout, there is an entrance hall with wood flooring with three bedrooms and shower-room clustered together. There is extensive living space which includes a grand sitting room which has a vaulted ceiling and impressive stone fireplace with a log burner to boost the heating on chilly evenings. The elegant dining room has beautiful original beams and two sets of double doors leading to the conservatory. Of generous proportions measuring 25ft long, this is a lovely place to relax in the day and benefits from a southerly aspect. Stairs rise from the kitchen and lead to a bathroom with corner bath and Velux window and a substantial double bedroom which has double height ceiling.
Bayford is a pretty Somerset village lying just north of the A303 with the market town of Wincanton nearby which provides an excellent range of artisan shops and coffee shops and several supermarkets.

There are several pre-school nurseries with two primary schools one of which was only completed in 2018 and a senior school. The Kings School, Hazelgrove School and Sexeys private schools along with several others are a short drive away. The village is within easy reach of three mainline railway stations all with fast links to London and the South West and a coach service direct to London has pick up point nearby. With easy access to the A303 linking with the M3/M25 gives easy access to London plus Heathrow and Gatwick airports. There is beautiful surrounding open countryside and Stourhead's gardens and property is a short drive away.
The property is approached by a wooden 5 bar gate and gravel driveway with parking for a number of cars. There is access to a detached double garage with workshop/storeroom to the rear, which could be converted into additional accommodation subject to the usual consents. There is a variety of evergreen and colourful shrubs providing year round interest and flower borders edged by stone. The good sized grounds are the highlight of the property which is mainly laid to lawn and gently slopes and features a small orchard, hedgerows and shrubs and totals 1.4 acres offering a good degree of seclusion. A further benefit is the separate vehicular access off of Devonshire Lane into the grounds.
