About this property

  • Plot 1 is a spacious four bedroom detached house arranged over two storeys. A sheltered entrance leads through to a welcoming inner hallway with a dramatic glazed opening flooding the space with light and providing a sense of the views beyond. The hallway leads through to a cosy snug on the right hand side and to the left the dual aspect, expansive open plan living space provides living, dining and kitchen spaces. Extensive glazing provides for exceptional views across the valley towards to the woodland beyond. The kitchen living area has a wood burning stove for those chilly evenings and the dining area features large sliding doors to connect with the outdoors. The kitchen has an island unit with breakfast bar and the benefit of a separate utility / boot room with outside access. A guest toilet and store cupboard completes the ground floor accommodation.

    Stairs lead to the four double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. The dual aspect principal bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with separate shower, plus a separate dressing room / walk-in wardrobe. The views from this bedroom are quite captivating and help create a sanctuary of luxurious calm.

    Outside there is an enclosed garden with areas laid to lawn and patio which also enjoy the fantastic rural views. Paved driveway parking provided for two to three cars, whilst soft planting areas and permeable surfaces encourage a naturalist visual.

    The Barn Garden is a collection of five carefully crafted brand new homes located in a semi-rural position in the Somerset village of Great Elm. Whilst being contemporary in style, the heritage of the area is subtly reflected in the design of each home with judicious use of natural materials such as the treated natural wood cladding and profiled metal sheeting. Large windows draw the eye to the panoramic views across towards the Mendip Hills whilst strong eco credentials ensure all homes are easy and efficient to run. The mixed aesthetic employed through The Barn Garden ensures a sense of cohesive individuality with elements of asymmetry, Dutch Barn influences and double gabled roofs.

    Sustainability has been at the forefront for The Barn Garden with sensitive and minimal disruption to flora and fauna. Extensive measures have been taken to minimise the impact of the development on the natural environment such as reduced carbon emissions, more of which are detailed within the linked brochure.

    A detailed specification is included within the linked brochure however highlights include Air Source Heating, which amongst other measures has [with one exception] resulted in an EPC rating of A. Other notable items are the underfloor heating, Masterclass kitchens with Quartz worktops, electric car charging and solar panelling.

The long range views across the valley are quite captivating.
