This impressive two-storey barn conversion occupies a quiet and peaceful position on the periphery of Edington village, southwest of the Mendip Hills and eight miles from Bridgwater.

The former barn was transformed in 1988 by the current owners, who used reclaimed building materials throughout its renovation while the original stonework remained intact. The result is a striking family dwelling with a wealth of character that showcases high ceilings, exposed stone walls and reclaimed beams.

Beyond the solid wood front doors, there is a grand double-height reception hallway. This impressive space, converted for entertaining, easily accommodates a large dining table.

The double-aspect sitting room has a high ceiling, a stone inglenook fireplace and arched French doors that open to a terrace. Adjacent to the sitting room is a study. The farmhouse kitchen is tastefully appointed with cream wooden units, a dresser, flagstone flooring, and an electric Aga. The separate dining room showcases a Victorian cast iron fireplace and two French doors leading to the terraces. There is an additional reception room which would work well as a fifth bedroom, study or playroom.

On the first floor, a gallery seating area leads to four double bedrooms and a family shower room with a double-sized walk-in shower. The principal bedroom has splendid views of the Mendips, fitted wardrobes, and a luxurious ensuite bathroom with a freestanding roll-top bath and walk-in shower.

Outside, the landscaped gardens measure just over one acre and are divided into distinct areas, including a charming rockery, a sheltered courtyard, a feature pond and various seating areas. Trees are abundant and include a weeping beech, walnut, and yew, and there is an orchard walkway flourishing with mature fruit trees. The adjacent field, just under seven acres, has been used for grazing sheep.

Additional outbuildings include a boiler room, a WC, and a log store.

The driveway leads to a gravel parking area and a triple garage.
