EPC Band E

Stoneleigh Barn is believed to have been built in 1811 and was converted in the 1980's to create spacious and flexible accommodation that has previously and is presently, being used as a bed and breakfast but would also make an impressive family home which could provide an annexe.

The property has stone and timber clad elevations with attractive brick quoining under a tiled roof and sits in grounds of approximately three quarters of an acre. The current owners have sympathetically transformed the barn whilst retaining much of the charm and character one would expect to see and have carried out an extensive programme of works
taking in all the major cost items including the plumbing, the electrics, double glazed windows and doors in parts, some underfloor heating, a new oil fired boiler and new kitchen and bathrooms are to mention a few.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors with on the ground floor a vestibule providing an area in which to hang coats and put shoes and beyond this two bedrooms are situated either side of an entrance hall each having luxurious en-suite bath/wet rooms with roll top baths and one having super dressing rooms. The annexe could be designed by using one of the bedrooms as a living area/kitchen. Upstairs the sitting room centres around a charming stone fireplace with multi fuel stove and features exposed timber beams and quality oak flooring. Glazed doors flow through to the conservatory which has pleasant views over the garden. Beside the sitting room the study area has access onto a terrace from which to enjoy glorious views over local countryside. Next to this the wonderful double aspect kitchen/dining room really is the hub of the home and is fitted with a contemporary range of base units and cupboards, drawers, glazed dresser and a breakfast bar providing seating and further storage. The units are complimented by oak work surfaces and a stone ? floor with underfloor heating. The kitchen is equipped with a gas range and Belfast sink and has space for an American style fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. To one side there is space for a large dining table and to the other side a door leads through to the cloakroom, conservatory and spacious utility/dog and boot room which has further cupboards, work surfaces and sink with space for a washing machine and a dryer. On the second floor there are four further well proportioned bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and the other three served by a bathroom and a shower room all enjoying views towards countryside.

Stoneleigh Barn lies a few miles to the north and east of Sherborne within short motoring distance of both the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the local regional centre of Yeovil. Both Sherborne and Yeovil provide an excellent range of cultural, recreational and shopping facilities while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling. Communication links are good with a main line station at Sherborne linking directly with London Waterloo while road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton.

The property is approached through a five bar gate into a gravel driveway which provides parking for a number of cars and gives access to the open oak framed double car port which has light and power, to one side a gravel pathway leads to a large shed. Steps at the side of the barn lead up to the rear south east facing garden and onto a large paved terrace which makes a wonderful entertaining area and a thatched rotunda is also used for alfresco dining on the lawn. Beside the terrace paved steps lead onto a decking area to the swimming pool which is heated and can be partially enclosed, along this side is a timber changing room, sheds and a greenhouse. The rest of the garden is for the most part laid to lawn with a fish pond and enclosed chicken area and punctuated by tree planting and established shaped borders designed to give colour and form throughout the year.
