DESCRIPTION This individual three storey home, is packed with period character and attractive features, approached via a sweeping shared driveway the beautiful stone façade of the property creates a dramatic first impression set against the stunning backdrop of the Mendip Hills.

Accessed is gained to the property via a handsome stone porch which leads to the original Barn door. On entering the property you step straight into a hugely impressive dining hallway which gives an immediate sense of scale of the accommodation, this truly magnificent room is ideal for hosting large dinner parties or indeed family gatherings. From the dining hallway an attractive painted staircase rises to the first floor accommodation with plentiful useful storage cupboards below. To the right of the entrance hallway is the dual aspect living room, another hugely impressive room with a stunning inglenook fireplace taking centre stage with its cast iron fireplace and Oak mantle. The living room also features a pair of French doors that lead out to a magical secluded courtyard.

To the rear of the ground floor lies the magnificent kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a substantial range of hand built Oak units with wood block work surfaces over. The kitchen features an oil fired Aga, two Belfast sinks, quarry tiled floor and a fabulous pantry. There is a generous dining area to the side of the kitchen that are flanked by exposed stone walls and a feature fireplace. The timber beams that run throughout the room add traditional country character and a pair of French doors lead out to the rear sun terrace and garden.

Completing the ground floor accommodation is an incredibly useful utility/boot room, a child's playroom/office and WC.

On the first floor, accessed from the attractive galleried landing are three individual double bedrooms including a stylish master bedroom which includes fitted wardrobes and a chic en-suite shower room with a classic white suite. You can enjoy superb views from the master bedroom over the surrounding countryside and beyond. The family bathroom can also be found on the first floor and has been refurbished in recent years to create a luxurious boutique style room with double shower and corner bath.

Finally, on the second floor are a further two double bedrooms with eaves storage and large landing which could be utilised as a further living space for an independent teenager, home studio and even be part renovated to create a further bathroom.

To the left hand elevation of the house is an attached garage/workshop area measuring over 40' by 20'. The current owners have recently renovated part of the garage to create a funky home cinema/games room without removing the original garage doors. From the games room, you can also gain access to the workshop and the remaining garage. There is huge potential and scope (subject to relevant permissions) to renovate the garages into further living accommodation for the house or perhaps a self-contained annexe for holiday lets or a dependent relative or even a home office to run your business from.

The Tithe barn sits in a generous plot of around 1.3 acres which is predominantly laid to lawn which has been landscaped to create several level plateaus as the land drops away from the house into the valley. The garden enjoys breathtaking views of the Mendip Hills and Crooks Peak, with space for a chicken run and to keep other livestock if desired. There is a five bar gate to the side of the property that connects the paddock/garden to the access lane to the house. On the opposite side of the house is the aforementioned secret courtyard garden which adjoins the kitchen. EPC rating F.
 

DIRECTIONS Travelling south on the A38, passing the turning to Axbridge on the left. Take the next right at The New Inn at the bottom of the hill and continue on through Cross and Compton Bishop, over the motorway and on towards the village of Loxton. At the junction turn right and proceed up the hill, and Tithe Barn is on the right hand side with a Debbie Fortune Estate Agents' For Sale board. 

SITUATION The Somerset village of Loxton is well placed for commuting not only to Bristol, Wells and Weston-Super-Mare, but also to the M5 motorway interchange (Junction 22) at Edithmead. The historic village of Axbridge, which has a variety of shops and interesting buildings, is about 3 miles to the east. Cheddar, just 2 miles to the south of Axbridge, has a comprehensive range of shopping facilities including a supermarket and the well respected Kings of Wessex Secondary School and Fairlands Primary School. Private schooling is at Sidcot, Wells and Bristol. For those with sporting interests there is sailing on the nearby Axbridge Reservoir, excellent golf clubs at both Burnham-on-Sea and Weston-super- Mare and the horse riding in this area is believed to be second to none. The Mendips (AONB) nearby give a host of country facilities, which are of great interest to country lovers and walkers. Mendip way is also literally a stone's throw away and joins up to many paths for any local walkers. 

OUR VENDOR SAYS We love it here because its rural but close to Winscombe, Axbridge and Cheddar and only 35 minutes from Bristol & Wells (Weston-Super-Mare is 15 mins away). We can be walking the Mendips in minutes and can be on the beach in 10 minutes. We get visitors popping in all the time on their way up North or down South. The airport is close and most importantly for us the schools are good, with many Ofsted outstanding and lots of choice including the three tier system. In a nutshell it's real countryside living without being isolated and with access to everywhere. Not to mention how spacious the house and garden are. We love it.
 

WE HAVE NOTICED A truly unique character home set amidst the stunning backdrop of the Mendips with flexible living space and lots of further potential. A must see house in the Country.
