Saltford Farm Barn is a delightful single storey stone barn conversion attached to Saltford Farm House which offers attractive characterful accommodation set in a large garden.

The property is approached through a wide reception hall with a quarry tiled floor which is large enough to be used as an additional living space. The characterful sitting room with its vaulted ceiling, glazed wall and feature fireplace with wood burning stove is situated off the hallway and has direct access to the garden. To the rear of the property there is a large extensively glazed kitchen/dining room which overlooks the garden and provides a beautifully light and spacious living, dining and sitting area. A inner hallway leads to the bedrooms, the master bedroom has been formed from the conversion of two separate bedrooms, (the conversion back to two merely requires the reinstatement of a stud wall) while a second bedroom also provides the access to a useful laundry room. The bedrooms are served by a good size family bathroom. On the outside, the property is approached from the Bath Road over a private drive which in turn leads to a five bar gate and the approach to the driveway to the barn which allows abundant off street parking. Adjacent to the driveway is a detached studio formed from a former double garage providing the possibility of a more formal conversion for living accommodation if required or reinstatement as a double garage. Attached to the garage is a timber framed carport.

The gardens are a notable feature of the property having been opened for charity on a number of occasions under the National Garden Scheme and have featured in Amateur Gardening, Somerset Life and The Bath Magazine. The gardens were created by the previous owner and are a beautiful feature divided in to rooms with seasonal interest and adjoining farmland to one side.
