Tenure: Freehold

GII Listed period barn conversion off a rural no-through lane with 4 bedrooms, double garage, courtyard, gardens and countryside views.

The Old Coach House is a character filled conversion of a mellow brick and Hamstone barn formerly part of the Midelney Manor estate - an Elizabethan Grade I Listed manor house which was originally on an island site and owned by Muchelney Abbey. Midelney Manor passed to the Trevillian family after the dissolution of the monasteries and in whose hands it remains tranquil and unspoilt.

Grade II Listed; the sympathetic conversion that is today The Old Coach House took place in the late 1990s; the vendors have lived there since 'new' contributing to and sustaining a home of great quality, flair and attention to detail. Combining high quality workmanship with the use of discreet oak-framed double glazed window units and the retention of a number of original features, such as panelling and exposed beams results in a house of great merit, both architecturally and aesthetically. All in all, this is a wonderful conversion, taking advantage of a special position surrounded by beautiful countryside.

The rural idyll of historic Midelney is in the heart of the Somerset Levels where there is no shortage of heritage,   harmoniously blending with today's communities not to mention the outdoor pursuits and wildlife . . . . or the cosy tea shops and arts for those of us preferring the quiet life.

The Old Coach House is along a single track, no-through lane leading from the picturesque village of Drayton which has a parish church, village hall and garden nursery with a coffee shop which also sells milk and bread.
