This beautifully presented and fabulously designed detached property occupies a private position with generously sized gardens, swimming pool and a double garage tucked away in the desirable village of Edington. Early viewing is essential to avoid disappointment.
Bottom Barn was designed and commissioned by our clients 2003 with great consideration and detail given to its longevity and how it would be lived in, having all the convenience of a modern home with characterful features, built of White Lias stone with Blue Lias stone quoins under a red clay tile roof. A spacious detached family home that is sociable, warm, beautifully presented and well maintained throughout.
From the entrance porch you will arrive into a fabulous reception hall where all ground floor rooms lead off from: cloakroom, study, sitting room, dining room, large utility room and kitchen/breakfast room. Two storey height glazing on the rear elevation floods the hall with light and a stunning Douglas Fir staircase ascends to a galleried landing. Oak engineered flooring flows into the open plan dining area creating a great entertaining space and a wood burning stove warms the heart of the house. The sitting room has a dual aspect overlooking the garden and an open fire with original oak beam from the barn which formerly stood in its place. The kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the front and rear gardens and features arched french doors opening onto an east facing terrace. Fitted with ample shaker style base, wall, drawer units with oak effect worktop surfaces, built in dishwasher and fridge/freezer and a Stanley Dual burner range for both cooking and heating. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a wonderful conservatory overlooking the courtyard garden. On the first floor a spacious landing leads off to four double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom suite is light and generously proportioned with built in wardrobes and a stylish ensuite shower room with large walk-in shower.
Tucked away, the property and gardens are both advantageously private and fully enclosed, approached through double gates down a gravelled sweeping drive, passed a turning circle to the parking area in front of the detached double garage/workshop with up and over doors, door to the side, power and light - subject to planning permission there is potential to convert into a granny annexe. The front garden is laid mainly to lawn with established trees including a eucalyptus, wheeping willow and a walnut tree (subject to a TPO) and shrubs borders. A covered swimming pool, heated by solar panels is a great selling point and is well maintained. Extending from the rear elevation is a stunning south facing walled courtyard garden, beautifully landscaped to include a large terrace for al fresco dining, a pond with feature moat, vegetable plot, greenhouse, well stocked flowering borders and a pergola providing afternoon shade. A covered passageway between the house and garage provides wood storage space and access through timber double doors to the front garden.
