DESCRIPTION Here is your chance to move in, unpack, and relax in the conservatory with your glass of wine and admire the manicured garden. Meadow Barn is an immaculate 'chocolate box' barn conversion, tucked away in this tranquil rural community of Blackford, within a short distance of the vibrant village of Wedmore with its shops, cafes, pubs, post office, doctors, dentist, chemist, and butchers. Excellent sports facilities include the Isle of Wedmore Golf Club, bowls club, football and tennis clubs, and there are countryside walks and cycle rides directly from your doorstep.

Arriving at the property you are immediately struck by the quality of the finish and thoroughly well maintained exterior. Possibly dating back to the mid 1800s, Meadow Barn has been cleverly and thoughtfully converted into the fabulous accommodation it is today. Push open the oak front door and the entrance hall gives little away as to the generous size and space of the reception rooms beyond. The sitting room is bright and airy with french doors overlooking the charming front garden, and a featuring and an open fireplace with a slate plinth. Crossing the entrance hall takes you into the heart of the home, the kitchen, where you will find the stunning 'John Franklin' fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces and 'Neff' appliances. The kitchen opens out into the dining area, with ample space to entertain family and friends. Venture further, through the arched double doors, to discover the vendors' latest fabulous addition to the property, a superb conservatory where you can sit with your coffee in the morning, gaze at your delightful garden, and ponder the day ahead.

At the top of the stairs the landing has lent itself to an office/study area with an extraordinary sealed wooden stable door to the exterior, with the glazed top section opening out with views over the front lawn. The bedroom suites are either side of the landing, both accessed through solid oak doors with feature stained glass panels. Both rooms are spacious with vaulted beamed ceilings and lovely views of countryside and garden. Each bedroom has its own luxury en suite and built in storage. The entire property is warmed by oil fired underfloor heating.

Outside, there is a double garage with recently installed 'up and over' electric doors, and there is also ample parking on the drive for numerous cars. The landscaped gardens border the house on two sides, and include a patio area and a water feature. EPC rating D.
 

DIRECTIONS As you head out of Wedmore in the Blackford direction, take the first right after the church onto Lascot Hill. Continue along this road until you pass the Isle of Wedmore Golf Club, Snipefield Road is the next on the left. Near the end of the road you will find Meadow Barn on your left hand side. 

SITUATION Blackford is a lovely Somerset village, with a church, country pub and a village hall. Nearby Wedmore, along with Chew Magna and Wrington, are 'hot spot' villages in the south of Bristol. Wedmore retains its unspoilt period charm with a village centre boasting an atmosphere of bustling activity; in fact the facilities in the village are hard to beat! There are a great selection of shops which draw their customers from all over the area and plenty of places to eat and drink, including pubs, restaurants and cafes, allowing visitors to 'make a day of it'! There are a range of clubs and societies covering all age groups as well as a range of sports and recreational facilities in the area at Cheddar and Wells, plus sailing and windsurfing at Cheddar, equestrian pursuits at Badgworth Arena and golf at the Wedmore Golf Club (18 holes). Bristol, Bath and Taunton are all within around 25 miles, whilst the beautiful cathedral city of Wells is about 8 miles away, with its excellent range of facilities. The M5 motorway (J22) is about 10 minutes, and there is a local train at Highbridge (also within 10 minutes), with links to Bristol Temple Meads and onward to London Paddington. Bristol Airport is also convenient for commuting, and provides a good range of national and international flights including low cost options. Schooling is well regarded, both state and private. Wedmore First School, Hugh Sexeys Middle School and the Kings of Wessex are a huge attraction for parents. Independent schools are at Wells, Millfield, Taunton, Wraxall and Bristol. The Somerset countryside around is well known for its beauty with the Mendip Hills, a haven for walkers and nature enthusiasts. 

OUR VENDOR SAYS We bought this barn conversion 12 years ago for the rural setting but with proximity to Wedmore. It has plenty of parking, double garage, it faces south, and it is warm and cosy in winter.  

WE HAVE NOTICED This is a rare opportunity to purchase such an immaculate barn conversion in such a sought after location. If you are looking for somewhere where you can just unpack and relax look no further than Meadow Barn.
