This characterful four-bedroom barn conversion occupies a tucked away position in the thriving and popular village of Shepton Beauchamp, located within a mile of Barrington, while Ilminster lies approximately four miles to the south-west. The superbly appointed property was originally converted in 2007 and has been the subject of several improvements and alterations by the current owners. The layout has been reconfigured to create a vaulted open-plan living area with a galleried landing, with huge floor-to-ceiling windows making the most of all the available natural light.

First impressions count in this property, as beyond the front door sits the main open-plan living space. An open screen creates a visual division between this area and the family room/snug to one side, which offers a wealth of character with its stone fireplace, exposed stone walls and beams. Adjoining this room is a contemporary shower room with fossilised wood effect tiles and high-specification finishes.

Also from the hall is an open-plan dining/living/kitchen area that is bathed in natural light from the full-length windows on the east side. The stylish kitchen has slate tiled flooring for a practical but rustic feel, and it is fitted with a range of quality units with black granite worktops and a feature chimney breast with an oak lintel and chalkboard sides. Double oak doors lead to a separate and more formal sitting room with a stone and brick fireplace housing a woodburning stove.

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, a single bedroom/study and a modern family bathroom. The principal bedroom has a walk-in dressing room and a stylish ensuite shower room, while the guest suite benefits from an updated contemporary ensuite shower room.

Outside, the enclosed and private courtyard area is a perfect spot for entertaining and leads to a secret garden beyond. This large lawned space offers a great deal of privacy and features a mature Walnut tree, a summerhouse and a decking area.

At the front, the driveway provides ample space for parking and leads to a large single garage.
