DESCRIPTION The Old Barn at West Lynne is a glorious random stone barn that in recent years has been skilfully converted to create a spacious and most welcoming character home. Sitting on the lower slopes of the Cheddar Gorge just off hugely popular Birch Hill, this stunning home enjoys an exceptional position close to many local amenities whilst basking in one of the most picturesque backdrops the fabulous county has to offer.

The property is constructed of impressive stone elevations that sit below a traditional pan tiled roof, the smart and modern interior is blessed with a huge amount of natural light and the rooms are well proportioned and flexible in their use. On entering The Old Barn you are greeted by an attractive entrance hallway which benefits from several useful storage cupboards and exposed timber beams. A farmhouse style door gives access to the large L shaped living/dining room which enjoys three aspects with French doors lead to a west facing terrace. The stylish fitted kitchen lies to the rear of the living/dining room and features a range of beech effect wall and base units with a rolled top work surface with inset sink and space for double oven. A door leads through to a rear lobby/entrance that then leads in turn to a good sized utility room with access to the rear garden.

At the other end of the attractive entrance hallway are the two double bedrooms which both benefit from fitted wardrobes and display original timber beams. The family bathroom which is contemporary in style is clean and crisp with the white suite featuring a tear drop bath, low level WC with fully tiled splash back and tiled floor.

A huge source of potential is the large attic room which sits above two bedrooms and is currently accessed via a loft ladder. At the end of the attic room a picture window provides an exceptional vantage point from which to marvel at the views of the breathtaking Cheddar Gorge and Mendip Hills. The attic room would be ideal for conversion, subject to the usual planning permissions and consents.

Externally the property has the huge benefit of a large off street parking area which can be enclosed by a wooden five bar gate. There is a small south facing patio area with footpath to the front door and flower bed borders flanking the parking area. To the rear of the property and offering huge scope for landscaping is an enclosed gravelled area with gate to the side that with a little love and careful planning could provide a beautiful private al-fresco dining space from which you can enjoy direct views towards the Gorge, all enclosed by a stunning original stone wall.

The Old Barn is a wonderful level access property with bags of future potential set in a convenient position in popular Cheddar. Being introduced to the market at the same time as the neighbouring farmhouse Ulverstone and being sold by an associated family member, The Old Barn could provide that rare commodity of a self contained annex accommodation within striking distance of the main residence, ideal for a dependent relative, holiday let or indeed investment for rental income. EPC rating D.
 

DIRECTIONS Coming from the Bristol direction on the A38 turn left, after the petrol station, signed for Shipham, continue right through the village and on through to Cheddar. When you reach the next petrol station, continue on round to the left and follow the road to the mini roundabout, taking the left exit. The first left after this is Birch Hill. Turn into this road, and the Old Barn will be found a short way up on the left hand side on the corner of West Lynne and Birch Hill.

WE HAVE NOTICED A room with a view! The beautiful setting of The Old Barn in West Lynne, set beneath the impressive Cheddar Gorge and Mendip Hills, is enough to inspire the most inactive of minds. Now imagine waking up to a direct view of this stunning landmark every morning! With just a little work the large first floor attic could be converted to a spacious master bedroom from which the picture window at the gabled end will give you that breathtaking outlook. With permission granted previously, the opportunity to create a third bedroom or potentially a first floor living room within the footprint of this stunning home will not only create added value but also a wow factor for you to relax and enjoy for many years.
