Full description

Dating from the 16th Century this detached house is set in delightful grounds in the Conservation Village of Barrington. There are 2 separate semi-detached guest cottages, each with 1 bedroom, a former cider barn with lapsed planning permission for a 3 bedroom cottage set in about 3.5 acres

The property has good head height throughout and many interesting historical and architectural features including thick walls giving deep-set window recesses, stone fireplaces, flagstone flooring, beamed ceilings in many rooms including a superb cross-beamed high ceiling in the dining room and an elm plank screen between the drawing room and the entrance hall. On the ground floor there are 3 reception rooms, kitchen, separate breakfast room, utility room and a rear lobby.
An oak balustraded staircase rises from the hall to the first floor where there are 2 bedroom suites, each comprising a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom. One bathroom has a Jack and Jill layout through to a separate double bedroom/dressing room. In addition there is a further double bedroom and a family shower room. Separate from the main house is a single storey former stone barn with a thatched roof and its own garden. (Little Knapp). The accommodation is currently arranged to provide 2 self-contained semi-detached cottages, each with a sitting room, kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom. The cottages could be put to a wide variety of uses (subject to the necessary consents) but if a single property with up to three bedrooms was required, the property could be easily remodelled.
To one side of the garden is a former cider barn with 2 rooms and a cloakroom downstairs along with a separate garden store. Upstairs is a single large and airy room with hardwood flooring and views over the Levels.

The Knapp is situated off the central lane running through the small village of Barrington in a designated Conservation Area. The village is located on the southern edge of the Somerset Levels and many of the houses are built from cob and thatched with local reeds. The village has an active community with a parish church, the “Barrington Boar” public house and a village hall with social and sports clubs including a gardening club and cricket club, together with a monthly produce market. The village lies halfway between the County town of Taunton and the regional centre of Yeovil. Nearby Barrington Court is a National Trust owned Manor House, which is open to the public.
