An excellent opportunity to acquire a stone built barn conversion, situated within the much sought after and exclusive hamlet of Sidcot, just a short walk from the world renowned 'Sidcot School'. We understand that this delightful property was converted to a residential dwelling circa 1968 and as such retains many features associated with this period. The property is presented in good order throughout and provides very comfortable accommodation for immediate occupation although in our opinion will require some modernisation in due course with scope to extend if required (subject to any necessary planning permission and consent needed). One of the key features of the property is its location, the delightful rear gardens and outstanding views across the surrounding countryside. An internal viewing of the property would be highly recommended as we anticipate considerable interest from the outset. In brief, the accommodation includes: Entrance Hall with Cloakroom off, L'Shaped Living Room with open tread staircase, Conservatory, Dining Room, Kitchen and Utility Room. First Floor Landing, 3 Double Bedrooms and Bathroom. The property is approached via a shared driveway which leads to exclusive parking for 2-3 vehicles. Gated side access leads to the delightful enclosed rear garden which will clearly appeal to those with a keen gardening interest. Viewing is strictly by appointment only through Farrons Estate Agents: 01934 842000
