Description - Somerville Barn is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a unique Grade ll listed detached timber frame 17th Century family home with flexible accommodation. Beautifully positioned in this most popular rural village location and offering an abundance of character with a mixture of contemporary and modern fixtures and fittings.

Somerville Barn is approached over a shared driveway which splits to both front and rear of the barn allowing gravelled off road parking to the front with access to a single garage whilst further, larger gravelled hard standing provides further off road parking to the rear, leading to the detached double garage.

Access can be gained to Somerville Barn at the front via a solid wooden panel door into an entrance porch and again into a DINING/ENTRANCE HALL, which in turn has access through to the main living room and also to the fully fitted kitchen diner. Additional access can be gained into Somerville Barn directly into a rear porch in turn accessing a useful ground floor utility room with fitted WC.

The UTILITY ROOM houses the oil fired central heating boiler with additional storage cupboards and space and plumbing for automatic washing machine. The modern KITCHEN DINER has fully tiled flooring with a marble work surface with matching solid wooden base and eye level units with integral eye level double electric oven and further integrated 'Whirlpool' electric hob with fitted extractor hood over. Further integral appliances include a dishwasher and fitted larder refrigerator and freezer.

The main LIVING ROOM is situated in the centre of the property and as such is the focal point to benefit from the impressive vaulted ceiling with an abundance of exposed wall and ceiling timbers with two staircases leading to two mezzanine style areas to the first floor. The living room is particularly bright and airy with double glazed windows to both front and rear aspects with attractive views across the private gardens and paddock beyond. The focal point of the living room is the inglenook style exposed brick fire place with coal effect oil fired stove.

To the rear of Somerville Barn is access to both the master bedroom with en-suite, the second bedroom and the family bathroom.

The MASTER BEDROOM has attractive exposed timbers with UPVC double glazed window to the rear overlooking the private landscaped rear garden and rural outlook beyond.

The master bedroom benefits from a contemporary fitted EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM with fully tiled floor, low level WC, vanity wash hand basin with matching wall mounted storage cupboards with integral mirror and lighting. The modern shower unit is fully tiled with dual fitted shower heads, non slip tray with glazed shower door and drying area.

The SECOND BEDROOM is a well proportioned double bedroom with fitted cupboard, exposed timbers and UPVC double glazed window to rear overlooking private gardens and beyond.

The FAMILY BATHROOM consists of a matching suite of low level WC, vanity wash hand basin, wooden panel bath and separate raised corner shower units with non slip tray and glazed shower doors. The bathroom is extensively tiled with bidet, exposed attractive timbers and Velux style window.

One of the staircases to the rear of the barn leads to the first floor accommodation into mezzanine style, occasional BEDROOM FOUR or a SNUG, with vaulted ceiling and a range of attractive wall and ceiling mounted exposed timbers with TV aerial point, telephone point as well as dual double glazed Velux style windows to the rear with attractive rural outlook.

A second staircase can be found to the side of the inglenook style fire place within the living room which accesses a further mezzanine style area, perfect as office space with plenty of power points, telephone point, vaulted exposed timber ceiling and double glazed Velux style window to rear aspect.

Both mezzanine accommodation have a wonderful perspective overlooking the main living room centrally and the ability to view the astonishing timber work from a unique perspective within the home.

From the study area steps lead into the THIRD BEDROOM again with exposed timbers within a vaulted ceiling with power points, TV aerial point, radiator and double glazed Velux style window to rear aspect with a further opening allowing access into a smaller dressing area with vaulted timber ceiling, heating and power points with double glazed window to the side aspect.

This additional space is perfect for dressing room, walk in wardrobe or potentially available to convert into an additional en-suite facility.
