About this property

  • The Barn's entrance overlooks its pretty garden and surroundings, and opens in to a hall which is flanked by the kitchen and a study, with windows looking out across the field to the front. Within the kitchen are wooden shaker-style units and a pretty tiled flooring which flows in to the utility area and the downstairs cloakroom. Up a few steps is the spacious sitting room with an attractive beamed ceiling, a gas-fired wood burner and a bank of windows which open out on to a pretty terrace. Within the sitting room is a large dining area with the open staircase leading up to the first floor.

    The principal bedroom is situated on the ground floor with wonderful proportions and a double height ceiling with doors opening out to the garden. The addition of a skylight in the bedroom provides a wonderful bright and airy feeling. The en suite bathroom has a free-standing bath and exposed beams and adjacent is a dressing area. The first floor comprises two large bedrooms, both full of character with exposed beams and conservation windows. These bedrooms share the family bathroom in between.

    The Barn is situated off The Barton, a very pretty corner of Norton St Philip. A gravel drive leads to a large parking area enclosed by a sweeping stone wall. The Barn is constructed of random stone under a clay tiled roof and extended over time with an oak cladding façade. The garden has a number of different areas to sit out and enjoy, including a dining terrace on one side with doors opening from the sitting room. A path leads across the neat front lawn to the entrance and below the level lawn is a sloping orchard running the length of the plot leading to a brook at the bottom. There is a variety of fruit trees and it is all enclosed by post and rail fencing. To the side is a further lawned area and access to an adjacent parcel of land.

    On the gravelled driveway there is a detached double wooden garage. This building has full planning permission, 2020/0690/FUL, to build a four bedroom detached home. This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a well presented village home with an adjacent plot to build a contemporary family home in one of Bath's most sought after villages.

I particularly enjoy the location of The Barn, so convenient for village life and yet a very peaceful setting.
