A BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED AND CLEVERLY EXTENDED BARN THAT NOW PROVIDES A STUNNING 4 BEDROOM HOME WITH MANY ORIGINAL FEATURES AND MODERN CONVENIENCES, SET IN AN IDYLLIC RURAL LOCATION WITH VIEWS OVER THE COUNTRYSIDE.

Originally consisting of a coach house and stables, Croft Barton has now been extended and transformed into a beautiful 4 bedroom house, set in quiet, idyllic countryside and enjoying sweeping views over hills and fields in the distance. Resembling the original building from the front, the house is unrecognisable at the rear, with split level accommodation and large conservatory overlooking the gardens.

The current owners have worked hard to create a house that combines many traditional features that one would expect from a property of this age, alongside modern conveniences. All done to the highest standard with full double glazing and solid oak woodwork throughout.

The entrance hall is a lovely, open space with vaulted ceiling, limestone tiled floor, exposed beams and plenty of natural light and with access to the middle terrace.

Steps lead down to a fabulous kitchen/dining/family room with a fireplace, space for comfortable chairs, and a dining table. The kitchen units are hand crafted wood and are under granite work surface. Incorporating a double oven Aga with 2 hobs over, Smeg gas hob (running on lpg) with extractor hood over, inbuilt Miele dish washer and inbuilt fridge.

Doors lead through to an east facing conservatory enjoying the morning sunshine, and fantastic open views. Off the kitchen is the utility room with all the usual plumbing, and doors to a good size pantry with air vent.

From the hall, stairs lead up to the sitting room. This is a warm, sunny room having windows to the east and south. With large fireplace, wooden floor and stunning views. Also on this level is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms and two further bathrooms, one being en suite.

Bishops Caundle is a small village on an elevated ridge overlooking Blackmore Vale countryside. There is the historic village church and the popular White Hart public house. Up the road is a village shop and post office, primary school, village hall and garage with shop.

6 miles west is the Abbey town of Sherborne with its historic architecture, boutique and national high street shops, sports centres and two supermarkets. Educational facilities are excellent with the well regarded Gryphon state secondary school and the renowned private Sherborne Schools and Leweston. There is also access to the A30 trunk road and mainline railway station (Waterloo 2 hours 15 minutes).
