A magnificent arch barn built in the 'picturesque' style with substantial guest barn, in a peaceful and secluded setting. In all about 4.019 acres.

The Arch Barn has a long and interesting history and was once part of Halswell Park Estate, Patcombe Farm, which was believed to have been built in the eighteenth century in the 'picturesque' style. The only surviving elements of the old farm are The Temple of Pan and The Arch Barn, which are the only two properties to be in private ownership. The other follies include The Temple of Harmony, managed by the Halswell Park Trust, and Robin Hood's Hut, now managed by the Landmark Trust. Standing proudly at the end of its own private drive and viewed across the small lake, The Arch Barn comprises a majestic and intriguing property. Listed Grade II, the properties were created nearly twenty years ago from a detached field barn with an adjoining open barn, where fastidious attention to detail was the theme, with the use of high quality materials throughout. The well-proportioned rooms have high ceilings leading off an impressive central reception hall, which include a sitting room with cut stone fireplace and a spacious kitchen / dining room which provides both good entertaining and living space. A staircase rises to a magnificent galleried drawing room with arched windows, a wealth of exposed timbers and framed panelled doors leading out onto a balcony, and further doors to two en suite principal bedrooms. A further staircase leads to a gallery and two second floor bedrooms with a spacious bathroom. In addition to the main house there is the substantial Guest Barn providing charming guest accommodation or could easily provide a home for a dependent relative or live in staff. It has been finished to the same high standard and includes a kitchen with Aga, a first floor studio sitting room with balcony enjoying the glorious views, a bathroom and a double bedroom. The barn also provides a double garage for the main property.
