Situation - Barton House occupies an extremely convenient location on the eastern edge of the village of Creech St Michael, accessed from Vicarage Lane in the village. Local amenities include shops, various churches, a pub, primary school and doctors surgery. Taunton, the County Town of Somerset is approximately 4 miles to the west and includes an excellent shopping centre with a number of well-known high street stores, good recreational facilities and many respected independent schools. Communications are superb, with easy access to the M5 motorway, providing fast and easy access to the rest of the country, and the A303 providing fast access to London can be joined at Ilminster. Taunton has a mainline railway station and both Exeter and Bristol airports are within a one hour drive. This part of Somerset is well-known for its spectacular hills, which provide endless walking and riding countryside. For those wishing to play golf, there are many respected golf clubs within easy access, including Pickeridge at Taunton, as well as cricket and racing within the town.

Description - Barton House is a substantial, detached modern house, which we believe was originally built in the 1980s and was designed to take full advantage of the wonderful setting. The house has attractive brick elevations, under a pitched tiled roof and was built to accommodate a large family at the time. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and offers particularly light and airy accommodation.

Accommodation - The entrance porch opens into the entrance hall, with a turning staircase to the first floor and doors to the reception rooms. The kitchen/breakfast room is very much the heart of the house, and includes an oak fitted kitchen with Aga, breakfast bar, walk in pantry and dual aspect windows. The sitting room again has a dual aspect, with sliding doors opening onto the patio area of the front garden. Adjacent is the dining room, which is of a good size and has a window overlooking the church. There is also a rear hallway/boot room, cloakroom, utility room and study, with access to the attached double garage.

On the first floor there is a galleried landing with built in storage cupboards and picture windows to the front and rear. There are four double bedrooms and a recently fitted family bathroom, with a bath and shower. The master bedroom has a good sized en-suite, again with a bath and shower.

Outside - It is the setting, which makes this property so special. Sitting centrally within its own plot, the house is surrounded by landscaped gardens, extending to approximately 0.75 acres. The house is accessed from Vicarage Lane, a quiet road with access to the eastern side of the village, with a five bar gate providing access to the house. The driveway leads to a hard standing area, providing parking for a number of vehicles and leading to the attached double garage. The driveway then extends to the front of the house where there is an open double carport and further parking for a number of vehicles. The gardens are predominately laid to lawn with deep paved patios to the front and rear of the house, with inter connected pathways. The gardens are part walled with a link to the ancient village church via a gateway. Within the garden is a productive vegetable area and a timber storage shed. Within the grounds are a number of specimen trees and shrubs.

Services - Mains water and electricity. Septic tank drainage and LPG central heating system.

Directions - From Taunton, proceed in an easterly direction on the A358, passing under the M5 motorway and continue through Henlade. Just as you leave the village, at the crossroads before the dual carriageway, turn left into Lipe Lane and continue towards the village of Creech St Michael. On entering the village, continue over the bridge and turn right into Bull Street and immediately left into Vicarage Lane. At the end of Vicarage Lane bear right and Barton House can be identified straight in front of you.
