DESCRIPTION Set in the centre of the beautiful North Somerset village of Wick St Lawrence with real convenience for amenities and transport routes is Larks Barn, an immaculately presented detached barn conversion of style and character. Our vendors actually bought Larks Barn in 2011 as just that, a barn! But they wanted a project to convert and live in, and they have therefore, left no stone unturned in creating a contemporary light and bright living space, that does not lose the innate character of the period building. Indeed they have done it for themselves, and therefore the quality shines through in the versatile and flowing living accommodation measuring approximately 1600 sq ft.

This briefly comprises; entrance hall/boot room, living room with vaulted ceiling and wood burner, luxurious 21' fitted kitchen/dining room with central island, three large double bedrooms including a master suite with ensuite shower room, and a family bathroom. The property is warmed by LPG gas central heating, with parts of the property benefiting from underfloor heating, and there is wood effect UPVC double glazing (including two most impressive wall spanning tri-fold doors in the kitchen and living room).

Outside to the frontage there is a large area of lawned garden, perfect for the kids to run around in, and the rear and side gardens are partially paved and gravelled with a solidly built kennel structure comprising two kennels as our vendor has a dog. The property has substantial off street parking on a gravel drive owned by Larks Barn up to next doors gate, and we are informed the property also owns the small patch of land opposite on the other side of the drive where they currently have a run for their pet ducks.

Set on Duck Lane, in the centre of this popular village community, for lovers of walking, it is surrounded by some of the most varied and beautiful countryside anyone could hope to find. Yet of course Wick St Lawrence is a highly convenient spot for amenities and schools, with Weston-super-Mare just down the road, the M5 easily accessible, and convenient transport routes to both Bristol, Bath and further afield. In our view Larks Barn represents a huge amount of immaculate living accommodation with real character, and we would therefore highly recommend an early viewing. For a family, or even for a (large) downsizer looking for a lock up and leave property, this hugely impressive 'move in and unpack' opportunity delivers in spades. Viewings essential! EPC rating D.
 

DIRECTIONS Proceeding on the A370 from Congresbury heading towards Weston-super-Mare, continue passing St Anne's School on your right hand side. After a while take a right turn onto Wick Road signposted to Wick St Lawrence. Continue over the railway bridge and then over the motorway bridge and proceed for two further miles into the centre of Wick St Lawrence. Duck Lane can be found just past the church on your right hand side and Larks Barn can be found immediately on your right. 

SITUATION The town centre of Weston-super-Mare is just a short drive away and amenities include the indoor Sovereign Shopping Centre, doctors, dentists, museum, library, cinema, theatre as well as Weston sea front, promenade and Grand Pier. There are state schools in Lympsham and Weston-super-Mare, and for independent education, Sidcot is an excellent private school just 4 miles away in Winscombe, while Bristol, Taunton, Glastonbury and Street also offer a wide variety of schools. The M5 is within easy reach as is the mainline railway at Weston. Bristol Airport is an easy drive to the north with its scheduled and low cost flights, both national and international. The countryside is well known for its beauty and offers a variety of community pursuits within a short drive. 

OUR VENDOR SAYS We bought Larks Barn un-converted five years ago as we wanted a project to build and live in. It had a huge amount of potential and of course we loved the very quiet location, the feeling of space and rural-ness, and the fact that there were lots of lovely walks right on the doorstep. We have put heart and soul into the conversion of what was essentially a cow shed into a sizeable family home. Indeed we are only really moving because we unexpectedly want to do this all over again, having found a new barn to convert! 

WE HAVE NOTICED It isn't very often that such a beautiful character barn conversion in a peaceful setting becomes available in the popular village of Wick St Lawrence. Especially not one completed to this specification and high quality. This property suits a wide variety of buyer; from holiday home owners, to families, from those looking to retire to the country, or even just to provide a move away from busy city life, whilst keeping the convenient main road access close at hand... Larks Barn delivers it all in our view.
