Property Summary

The Grain Store offers a rare opportunity to live in such a peaceful setting while remaining highly connected to transportation and attractions. The house sits on approximately 2 acres of private grounds separated into distinct areas, including a woodland, kitchen garden, swimming pool with lawn and flower beds, and pond. What's more, there is access via a green lane to miles of Woodland trails, all while being within 20-30 minutes of Bruton, The Newt in Somerset, Wincanton, Gillingham Train Station, and much, much more. The situation really has to be seen and felt to be appreciated!   The house is low maintenance with an B-rated EPC, wind turbine, and heat pump. It would be perfect for someone looking to lead a slightly quieter life without being detached from society.

Full Details

As you turn from the main road, you're greeted by a dry stone walled entrance and a drive bathed in dappled light. On the right is a wooded area that also houses the property's bio-sewage treatment tanks, a testament to its eco-conscious design. On the left, the land extends to the neighbors.

The front door opens into a stunning open-plan kitchen/dining/reception room with a vaulted ceiling, flooded with light from windows and doors on all sides. The heart of the home, the custom kitchen, features open units, ample space for free-standing appliances, and a wood-burning Esse cooker alongside the dual fuel range cooker. At the end of the kitchen, a door leads to the patio and garden beyond.

The reception and dining area is spacious enough to be easily partitioned, with a dining table that comfortably accommodates 10. The living area is a cozy retreat, with an L-shaped sofa and additional seating arranged around a log burner and plenty of space for more furniture.

To the front of the property, glazed doors open to a patio area, perfect for a quick coffee in the morning. In the back left corner is a generous double bedroom with a door to the outside and a wet room-style shower room.

Stairs lead up to the first floor, where there are two further generous bedrooms with large windows and a bathroom. The bedrooms are connected via a door at the end but could be easily separated, and a second bathroom could also be created. Planning permission was granted for a mezzanine from the bedrooms over the reception area.

As you walk outside, the first thing you see is a patio area with a pergola and plenty of space for seating, a table tennis table, or anything else you might want to use it for.

There is a shed housing the pool pump and filter, and another has been converted into a guest house with a bathroom, kitchenette, and sleeping area. It would also make a good office.

Further up the garden is another shed with established use which could also be converted subject to the usual permissions.

The pool is by Clearwater Revival and has an air source system and solar cover for heating. It also has a seating area and beautiful flower beds, all surrounded by a sculpted willow hedge.

Beyond the pool is a gate that leads to a green lane, which in turn heads over to Penselwood, up to Alfred's Tower, and down the hill to Stourhead.

At the top of the garden is a pond full of wildlife, a fenced area, and a children's play area (the treehouse might need repairs).

The property offers enormous scope for further tinkering or works perfectly as it currently is.
