This stunning three-bedroom home set alongside two annexes (which house the games room, office, and stores), this stone-built home offers contemporary open-plan living in a character setting.
Effortlessly blending farmhouse-style charm with modern practicality and comfort, the kitchen spans the back of the house, with tiled flooring, underfloor heating and French doors opening out onto the garden from the breakfast area. The kitchen is fitted with an array of base and wall units with integrated appliances and an Aga, and there is plenty of space for a breakfast table and other furniture. The kitchen provides access into a utility/boot room, with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, and there is also access through to the downstairs WC.
The sitting room can be a cool haven in hot summer months with French doors opening out to a paved seating area, and in cooler winter months there is a feature gas-effect log burner which provides a cosy focal point. A large dining room offers plenty of space for entertaining and has two built-in cupboards.
Stairs lead up to the three double bedrooms, each with their own charm, and benefiting from the character afforded by the thick walls and deep window sills framing lovely garden and rural views. The master bedroom is tranquil and spacious, with an en-suite shower room and built-in wardrobes.
The accommodation continues through two further converted barns, one of which is currently a fabulous games room with beams, vaulted ceiling, French doors to the garden, a WC, and has an unconverted storeroom. The other barn houses a substantial office and has a separate insulated room used as a store.
Set just off a green and leafy country lane, this lovely home has a driveway accessed by a five-bar gate set between old stone walls with enough parking for several cars. The converted barns enclose a landscaped garden with various paved seating areas, perfect for dining and entertaining al fresco. The garden has been beautifully maintained and is mainly laid to lawn, with mature borders and flower beds. The best part? Hidden away is a ‘secret garden’, ideal for a veggie patch or perhaps the perfect home for a few chickens.
Bramwell Barn is perfectly placed for exploring the rural village of Wedmore, complete with an interesting array of shops including a gallery, fishmongers, butchers, a village store, several cafes and three popular pubs. Although this home feels far from the madding crowd, you’re just 10 minutes by car from junction 22 of the M5 and the cathedral city of Wells, while Bristol Airport is only a 30 minute drive. The property also falls in the Wessex Learning Trust catchment area for Wedmore First School, Hugh Sexey Middle School, and the Kings of Wessex Academy and Sixth Form. There are also several renowned independent schools nearby, including the likes of Millfield, Sidcot, Wells Cathedral and Taunton Schools.
